    What makes this a verbal masturbation? It's all positive comments. He says he wants to hear new music from VH and hopes MA will join in. Sounds good to me.

    I have no problem with Sammy talking. He was part of the band and he'll always be asked about what's going on. The guys who are still in the band could learn to do the same.

    I believe verbal masturbation can come in either negative or positive flavors. I admit a bias against Hagar and a distaste for anything he says so there is that too. One can ignore my editorial-ish intro and enjoy the article.

    I understand that some people just don't like him for whatever reason. But it just strikes me as funny that it's no problem at all for the press to just go up to Sammy and ask what's going on with him or Van Halen and get a blunt answer. That's something you simply can't do with Van Halen, and yet some people are mad that Sammy is open and will answer whatever he's asked directly. Especially given the contradictory BS and confusion going on right now my first instinct is to applaud Sammy and heap shame on the VH brothers and handlers.

    Agreed. It doesn't really fit and I couldn't help myself but I probably should have. It shouldn't be about the title or my intro but the article anyway.

    Since this thread has become more about sarcasm toward the title and my opening post, I'll just say this before it carries on. To me, Sammy is that guy that has just talked so much shit (in my opinion) that whenever he opens his mouth, I am annoyed. I should not have given this thread a title that put my own opinion in the forefront though, as I realize that this is not a forum for Sammy haters, and I hope that people can get passed it. Yes, a CVH reunion would be great. That said, if Sammy Hagar talked about world peace, I'd probably have some sarcastic comeback as well. It is my problem and I recognize it. Sorry again for forcing this thread into a stupid direction as I should have just posted the article without commentary or a biased headline that is unwarranted given the content.

    I do find the timing of this artilcle and his *prediction* rather irratating (even if I'd like it to be true), especially after the confusing last 48 hours of conflicting stories.

    And I have nothing against Sam at all.

    No real need to apologize. There's just a lot of frustration around here right now from everyone and at everyone, haha! I just wish the guys in VH would actually communicate.

    I have no problem with Sammy answering the countless VH questions he gets.

    So that I can start threads like this that end up pissing people off. Seriously though, I ignore everything he says unless it is VH related as I have an interest in VH. While he annoys me and bothers me it's not an important enough part of my life for me to make a conscious decision to read, not read or whatever. I see VH, I read, I react. And repeat the next time. When I'm done reacting, I've forgotten about it so my life is no fuller or emptier than it had been previously.
