    I'm sure all of us here on links are familiar with Hagar's singing voice, and it shouldn't need to be said that his normal vocal timber is a completely different animal. Having heard him numerous times in interviews and on tv I highly doubt this is his voice.

    I myself would like to think it is true, as any DLR reunion would turn Van Halen into a pointless nostalgia piece... but just consider the timing. The night after Van Halen gets humiliated on MTV, 'Sammy' makes a public statement about a band he has virtually no contact with to further the mocking. Please. A great advertising ploy by a smart radio DJ, but nothing to ruffle your feathers over...

    I'd say it's definately Sammy.

    Tune in tomorrow for another episode of As Planet Van Halen Turns.

    Advertising ploy by the dj? For what? When I talked to him he didn't try to push his station on me. And I used to work in radio here in Little Rock and when we talked and he found out where I was from he used to work here at a competing station. He had nothing to gain here. He was just passing on what he had gotten in the mail that morning. And there is more than one Sammy clip he got this morning and in it he talks about his refusal to call the band out of fear of them asking him to rejoin. The clip sounds real. The motives of Sammy are the ones in question, not the guy that passed the info on.

    That's definitely Sammy's voice.

    However, I find it interesting that Sammy would come out and say anything frankly.

    yeah, that's sammy.
    cabo kid seemed pretty cool.

    i wonder where the sammy interview came from, though.

    sounds like a run-of-the mill press junket thing.

    Like Timmy said, it's very edited sounding as well.

    For the record, I've dealt with Cabo Kid on several occasions and I've found him to be a stand up guy, very honest.

    I don't believe Cabo Kid had anything to do with it. He seemed real nice on the phone, and he's just relaying what he had. I will admit that while every word spoken was from Sam it did seem a little strange. Hell, it's probably some kid with Sound Forge or some shit playing all of us for fools.

    Oh Cabo is TOTALLY legit, but I think that clip was tampered with by whoever gave it to him.

    If it is Sammy... which I still don't believe it to be...

    why are these quotes presented to us in such cut and paste fashion? Why not include the full context of the interview to give us a better view of the situation? Perhaps because they are nothing more than old clips from after the reunion break and/or the Cherone breakup. For God sakes people, QUESTION things!

    Did he mention Dave by name. I don't think so. Why didn't they play the interview in it's entirety? I think it was past Sammy quotes re-edited to sound like he's commenting on the current situation with Dave and the band. I'll go out on a limb and say this is pure puppy doo doo!

    Uh judging by the amount of responses on this topic, I think it's pretty obvious we are questioning it A LOT!

    Just listened to the clip, and I'm not sure it it's Sammy or not. It kind of sounds like him, but it could also be someone imitating him, too, IMHO. At first I thought, "that ain't him!" but the more I listen to it, the more unsure I am.

    Also, he never specifically said "Dave" or "Van Halen". How do we know he was talking about Van Halen? These quotes may have been taken out of context.

    Well Brett...he got it through Launch. a service that radio stations use for show preparation. So if it is fake...Launch was the first to buy it.

    Although it does sound like Sammy, it sure as hell sounds very edited to me. Also, take a listen again - he doesn't say 'Van Halen', 'David Lee Roth', 'Eddie', etc. How the hell do we knoe that's who he's even talking about? I think it is Sammy but a very good fake...
