    Jason Becker also challenged him and DLR. It was a really touching video. I would like to see Eddie and Dave go the extra mile for him. He was such a great guitarist and what this terrible disease is did to him is devastating.

    Why on earth would Hagar call out Ed & Al for this??? Does he think it might get him back in the band or something???

    Not going to happen Sammy...

    Its a little pathetic in my opinion...

    Definitely a bad move. As most of them have been since the reunion. I always like Sam, but over and over he just goes out of his way to address VH, and related topics, that are not necessary. It's really turned fans off.

    He just comes off as a bitter person. If he ever wanted back in keeping quiet would've been the better route. He blew it, I think. I don't see it ever happening now.

    The guy is jammin' with a different band constantly. I don't why he can't focus his energies elsewhere.

    Sammy has repeatedly said, that he has no desire to be back in that band.

    2004 left a sour taste in his mind and that is understandable.

    What he does have a desire for, is to rekindle a relationship that was once described, at one point, as being closer to Ed than even Al.

    Sam doesn't need VH to elevate his status. He's doing fine without them.

    I think it has a lot more to do, with some of you guys, getting a little insecure when Sam talks about VH. "Oh, what if Ed accepts Sam's challenge and this snowballs into something more"???

    "Oh, I can't take another Diamond exit"!!!

    I have an ex business partner that things ended ugly with in 2005.

    I would never even consider mentioning him for something like this. It has been TEN YEARS since Sam talked to Ed. That is fucking forever.

    Let it go. Ed's moved on, maybe Sam should too.

    I just think some people are wired differently. I have friends that I have lost contact with, and outside of "I wonder what Tim is up to?" for about five seconds every five years, I never think about them. I go too much other shit to worry about.

    Sam can obviously do whatever the fuck he wants, and in the end it is just some stupid viral video trend that for once has ended up having a good benefit to it. I just don't understand the point of naming Ed in it.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Why would Sammy do this? To jab Ed & Dave? To Promote himself again? Every time he mentions VH he gets more press for it than he does any of his projects. It doesn't make sense and he needs to let it go. His relationship with Ed ended like a bad car wreck. Then Sammy poured gas all over that wreck and set it on fire when he wrote his book. What makes him think that this is cute or a good idea? I'm sure he's tried to contact Ed privately and got the cold shoulder. He knows that Ed isn't into any public displays of this sort and he knows that Ed won't do it. So Ed comes off like a jackass if he doesn't do it and Sam can go on a "Aw shucks, I'm just a regular guy and I'm trying to do some good. I don't why Ed won't do it" routine.

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    You people over think this stuff. He's just screwin' with the VH boys. A light-hearted jab. Sammy has the world by the balls. Just funnin' a little.

    Just Sam trying to get exposure for Sam, that way if they don't do it they look like insensitive pricks and Sam looks good. I hope they do it in response to Jason's challenge and never mention Sam.

    It's hilarious that Sam has such control over some butthurt fans that are STILL pissed about him taking over for Dave in 1985.

    LET IT GO indeed

    I will say what I said on FB about this: why shouldn't he nominate them?

    Sam's not an idiot - he knows that his association with Van Halen will be forever cemented in people's minds; that it's probably the first thing the average music fan thinks about when they hear his name - so, in reality, he's only doing what the vast majority would expect and anticipate.

    I'd imagine that had he NOT mentioned the VH brothers, the 'average music fan' would be saying, "How odd that he didn't nominate anyone in Van Halen!" because, whether you love or loathe Sam, he is pretty savvy when it comes to PR, and, by nominating arguably THE most well known people with whom he has had a musical association, it garners more attention - yes, for the man himself (nobody is denying that he is a master at self-promotion) - but, more importantly, for the condition and charity being publicised.

    Quite frankly, those people who are criticising him on this matter need to stop being so snobbish about the 'legacy' of Van Halen - the 'average music fan' doesn't give a toss about any of that; just accept the fact that the man has done a decent thing, and be gracious about it.
