    There is definite tension around the 1 minute mark. Granted I know Eddie is coked up but you definitely see he is pissed along with Sam.

    Ed and Sam are certainly not pleased with each other.

    oh, yeah I'd never seen that. Hagar looked like he wanted to launch into Ed (verbally, not physically.) There's no doubt once they got alone somewhere they screamed their lungs out at each other....

    I can't remember my source, but I once remember hearing Sam say that stuff went to shit sooner than he lets on in most of his interviews. Most of the interviews now say the relationship got sour after Balance, because of the Greatest Hits package, Ray Daniels, and the Twister project. But I swear I remember hearing Sam say that right after OU812, it changed, and they were no longer the friends they were during 5150 and I Never Said GoodBye.

    Not surprising. It's difficult to maintain relationships when drugs and alcohol are involved.

    Here's what I found sort of striking about the interview. I could be wrong, but it seemed like Sammy had "hand". He got pissed. Ed seemed to backdown...he kind of walked away for a second there, and then was trying to jokingly fuck around with him by putting the mic in his stomach and all that.

    If Sam was in control as much as he says, and what seemed to be from this interview, then was he really fired? If Ed called Sam on Father's Day, as Sam claims and said we want you to go back to being a solo artist like you wanted, why didn't Sam say, hey fuck you. You're not in charge of this band. I am. It might have your name on it, but you were lost after Dave left, and I brought my manager and saved this band. You don't fire me, I fire you. Now go crawl back into your bottle and shut the fuck up.

    I'm serious. Unless legally, Ed had some sort of majority control, or something worked into their deal.

    Just interesting to talk about.

    Wow, never seen that before. Definitely a fight there. Sam gets pissed at something or some reference Eddie made, you can see Al lean and whisper something to him Sam, then Eddie pokes Sam with the microphone and Sam says something like no, no screw that. Ed didn't say anything after that.

    Eddie has always said that 5150 was the only album and tour where there were no issues, after that they always had issues with Sam. I believe him. As far as Sam being fired...ya maybe...I bet it was more like Eddie saying you should go back to being a solo artist to see what kind of reaction he would get out of Sam. What I mean is if Sam, instead of saying ya ok I'll go be a solo artist on that supposed Sunday Father's Day phone call, if he had said instead no I want to be in the band, I bet they probably would have worked it out. Instead, Sam agreed with Ed's suggestion and that was that.

    It will forever be a source of endless speculation. I think Roth's departure is a lot clearer now than Sam's. Anyway, fun to discuss knowing that the band is functional now and appears to be working on new music, so all this stuff is trivial.

    I saw this when it was playing on MTV (right after I became a fan) and I own it on a bootleg video compilation but never noticed that. I just watched that part several times, and I still don't notice that. I don't see any animosity. You talking about the whole "I'm serious" think Sammy said?

    Looks like Sam was pissed, Ed felt bad and was trying to apologize but Sam wouldn't have it.

    So, why was Sammy pissed when Eddie joked about being friends with Howard Stern? Was it because Howard always talked about preferring the Dave-era to the Sammy-era of Van Halen? Had Howard been recently badmouthing Sammy before this aired?
