    Default Sammy Hagar, do you miss Eddie Van Halen?

    Poor Sam, doomed to answering VH questions for the rest of his days on this earth. If he wasn't so loaded I'd almost feel sorry for him.

    One minute he says he dont want back in the band, the next minute he says he'd be willing. Wish he'd make up his mind.

    As a Van Hagar fan, I would love to see these guys reconcile. Heck, I would like to see them reconcile even if it didn't lead to any sort of musical collaboration. The truth is, Eddie's addiction problems, and the mental health issues that ensued as a result of those addictions, destroyed his relationships with Valerie and Sammy. I really think Sam felt even more burned by the 2004 tour than he did from his ouster in 1996. Feelings were hurt. It's too bad because there was some great music and live performances from Van Hagar.

    As I've mentioned in other places and at other times on this board, if people could and would train themselves to eliminate dichotomous thinking, the world simply opens up in millions of ways. If you get there, you'll know what I mean.

    In this particular instance, the false dichotomy is Sammy doesn't want in Van Halen and Sammy is willing to be in Van Halen.

    Eliminate the either/or proposition and look at it this way: both are true.

    Sammy doesn't want in Van Halen AND Sammy is willing to be in Van Halen.

    Both are true. "Both/and" instead of "either/or." Position almost any conflict in the world like that and see how your life changes.

    i see absolutely nothing wrong with anything he says there. everything he says is true and i don't hear him say he wants back in. he is saying maybe if Eddie could get past it they could possibly be friendly to each other like he and Alex are. thats all. and the thing that really surprises me is that almost everyone on this forum loved Sam when he was in the band. so why hate on him now? makes no sense. and fuck that crap that he should shut his mouth if asked a question, won't let go of the VH thing blah blah blah. that is such juvenile thinking. he has just as much right to say something as Ed or Al do. like it or not he did get screwed over by EVH in 2004 and is not trying to start shit, but answering when asked. i think he is genuinely hurt by the whole thing. every one of us who bought a ticket to that tour got screwed too. EVH was embarrassing. the fact that he is sober now and playing arguably better than he ever has is awesome. but it does not change the fact that he was a train wreck for a decade. something no one ever brought up here is that in the esquire magazine article on EVH last year, towards the end, he says quote ' its not like i meant to hurt anyone, you know', but that is it. then goes on to another subject. i think that is the closest he has ever come to acknowledging what he did to Mike, and maybe Sammy. i thought that was cool and wish he would have said more. my 2 cents.

    It seems the same people who attack Sammy for flip flopping are the ones who most staunchly defend Ed for the same behavior...

    Yeah he needs to stop fuckin around the question and just answer it straight up cause my rudimentary toaster for a brain can't process all the waffling that's going on here.

    I always enjoy Sam's interviews. It's refreshing to hear a celebrity trying to be frank and open, rather than being evasive with their answers, or limiting the interviewer(s') questions to what is considered 'safe' ground.

    The guy could cure fucking cancer and people on here would bitch about how he handled the press conference for it.

    IMO, I think Sam is not going to initiate anything first with Eddie.
    I think that if Eddie calls him and works things out, then Sam would consider doing something in the future with him.
