    Default Original LA Weekly Sammy interview from 03.08

    I've seen many threads from other sites where they pull a few selected quotes from this interview, but I haven't seen the full interview (maybe i'm wrong):

    http://blogs.laweekly.com/westcoasts...n_chickenf.php

    In this interview, he talks about Chickenfoot IV, the next CF record. So people who think CF will not continue, you don't need to worry anymore!

    One positive quote people will like: " It took me awhile to get that much confidence to be able to stand up there and sing a great song like fuckin' "Jump" or "Panama." Those songs are kickin' ass. "Unchained?" Shit, come on, that's just rockin'."

    That's cool. I do remember Sammy saying something similar before the '04 tour. I don't remember the exact quote, but it was something to the effect of how he respected the Roth Van Halen songs, and that anyone who didn't like them just wasn't a fan of rock.

    I'm pretty sure of two things.

    1. This whole interview was captured in pieces of the other closed threads.
    2. This thread is headed for the same outcome as the others.

    There is still a bunch of the interview that hasn't been seen. It's mainly all Chickenfoot stuff, alot of the same old same old, but interesting nonetheless. It'll come out as the tour progresses.

    I think Hagar said it pretty much the way he feels. I can't imagine people are going to have a problem with what he said. he praises the music. Oh who am I kidding, people are going to be pissed

    Before joining Van Halen, had you been a fan of the band?
    I was a fan of the band, yeah, and the music I always dug it. I wasn't a fan of Roth's image. If I had never seen him, I could've handled his vocal style and his attitude was great; he had a great rock and roll attitude -- it fit with the music.

    They had such a heaviness but they were really poppy at the same time; I thought that was really cool. But when I would see that guy and the way he was suckin' his jaws in and his stances and his attitude and raps it was like, oh my god, who is this guy trying to kid here? He was playing the role of a rockstar too much to the bone and I never liked that role too much. I wanted to be more of a musician and an entertainer. He bugged me -- that's all I can say.


    Uhh Sammy,Dave doesn't have to play the role of rockstar..he is a rockstar.

    You have to remember that in 1986 during interviews, the VH bros were the ones saying the ugliest stuff about Dave. They were at the forefront of what was then called the "Van Halen Wars." Sammy wasn't saying much. Ed and Al were trashing Dave continuously. I think after a while Sam joined the chorus, following the "party line." Of course since then the party line has changed...

    Hard to blame the posters on this message board for "keeping the war going" with comments like these. The fans aren't stoking the fire. This douche is.

    Let's play a drinking game:

    take a shot every time someone with a join date of 2012 bashes Sammy. Who's playing? Let's get shitfaced!
