    Default Sammy Interview on Grantland (Apr 5th, 2012)

    Chuck Klosterman interviewed Sam on Grantland yesterday:

    http://www.grantland.com/blog/hollyw...nd-sammy-hagar

    They talk a lot about VH around the reunion tour in 2007. Chuck tries to bait him, but Hagar makes a point of saying (paraphrase), "I'm proud of Eddie for getting himself cleaned up. I'm happy for him that he's out and doing well....I'm happy they finally got back out on tour and did something good for the fans."

    He praises the fan base as being the best and most loyal in R&R.

    This is really a great interview. One of the best he has ever had. The interviewer really asked some good questions. Sam was not a dick either.

    Long too, in-depth. There probably could have been another hour, Sam's been around a while, probably has a lot more stories to tell. Good stories and not petty shit.

    Worth the listen..

    One hell of an interview. I loved when he talked about VH and the Van Hagar era.

    pretty sure that is the very first interview i have heard with sam in about 15 years where he wasnt a total dick!! good interview. afew more like this and i may be inclined to believe he is laying the tracks for trying to get back in the good graces of the van halens. say what you will but i think he would do a album with them w/out mike in a heart beat!! he is all about his, and in this order.......

    self
    money
    his legacy
    cars
    the music

    w/ van halen he has a shot at moving the music up on that list. if it is done in time to hook up w/ ed in his current condition. w/ all that said i would rather have 2 more albums w/ dave then a sam album. pipe dream i know.

    Good interview, although I hate when Sam overestimates how long they played for each concert....."we played 2.5-3 hour shows" , says at 10 minutes in. Complete exagerration.

    Thanks for bringing the interview to the attention of these boards. Listened to it yesterday. It was great!

    Also cleared up for me, his ownership stake in Cabo Wabo Tequila. Since Sam's appearance on That Metal Show, I had been wondering if he sold his remaining 20% of the company, and in this interview he confirmed that was the case.

    Sam exaggerates almost everything, it has become a part of his schtick in my mind, I hardly pay attention to it anymore.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Last CF show I saw was about 90 minutes and some change. Couldn't speak for the others but sounds like he's on the mark to me.

    He's said his name before tons of times in print and on video. Why should it matter that he doesn't here?

    Once again... it was fine for Dave to refer to Mike as The Bass Player in his book, but you have a problem with Sam calling Dave The Other Singer ?

    Jesus! how do you fuckheads hear a thing with Roth's cock constantly stuck in your ear?

    Dave's little bitches.

    Sam gave a very open and honest interview here and STILL the haters find something to pick out... no matter how miniscule. Why are you all in the Sam forum anyway?
