    It's David and Sammy, minus the Van Halens
    By KEITH RYAN CARTWRIGHT
    For The Tennessean

    Sure, David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar are playing together here this weekend. But there's zilch chance that the supergroup they both fronted, Van Halen, would ever get together with them both again.

    Or is there?

    ''I would really like to see if we could pull it off, a reunion with Dave and Sammy,'' Michael Anthony, the group's bassist, says.

    Saturday, however, fans attending the Roth/Hagar concert at AmSouth Amphitheatre will have to settle for the two without Eddie Van Halen and his brother, Alex.

    Instead, they'll get a predominately classic Van Halen set from Roth and a mixed set of solo material and Van Halen-era hits from Hagar. Anthony, who'll perform with both, says fans are happy for an approximation of the group.

    Much has been written about the feud between Roth and Hagar, as well as the differences between the two frontmen and the Van Halens. Roth, in tomorrow's Weekend section of The Tennessean, says he and Hagar ''get along fine'' and that he'd consider reuniting with the group if ''they're prepared to do the exact right thing.''

    What that ''thing'' is has yet to be clarified.

    For now, it seems a Roth reunion is still a long shot. Eddie's health and personal life are in turmoil. And Roth hasn't even spoken to either of the Van Halens ''in years,'' he says.

    ''The whole thing is really frustrating,'' Anthony said. ''You know, unfortunately, some things that seem like they should be so easy to fix become kind of difficult.

    ''Of course, it would be great to do something again with Sammy or Dave or both of them. Maybe just kind of put a cap or a final ending on this whole era.''

    Both? Did I miss a memo or something?

    Sounds like an innacurate statement, or wishful thinking.

    Anybody have any clues what the "exact thing" might be?
