    Default :::What's Sammy's Problem?

    I am a fan of Sammy, and I am not.

    I am a fan of Sammy, in that I respect his talent, and that he can continue as he does, even into his late sixties. And, having lived close to the World Trade Center when the towers came down, I appreciate what Sammy did for the NYFD.

    Mike said Sammy is one of the most upbeat, positive, people he's ever known.

    Musically, however, I prefer DLR.

    Sammy will come out with things, that he'd like to resume his relationship with the Brothers. Then he comes out with a story of Ed sleeping his kitchen floor, busted refrigerator handle, etc.

    He says he's happy, he's content; and then says that Ed can't write music anymore.

    What's his motivation? Is he bitter? Or can it be something else, hoping that his taunts might piss Ed off, and challenge him into being at his best.

    I don't see anything wrong with Sam at all. He doesn't say anything that I haven't said about Eddie. I love Eddie's music and I'll always be a fan, but he's also flippin' weird.

    All I see is honest observation. I just said in the new album thread I don't think Eddie has cared about writing Van Halen style music since about 1999. His book was about 90% positive about VH and the other 10% was not a shock to anyone that kept up with VH during that time.

    Pretty simple really, The good times with Eddie were the best times Sam has ever had. So Sam at times wishes he had those times back, Then he realizes it is never going to happen, so he loves the guy and at the same time is resentful of what could have and should have been. No more no less. As far as slights against Eddie, Sam just lays it all out there good and bad about everyone including himself.

    Yep. Considering all that's happened with the band and I think it's much more relevant to ask what's Eddie's problem.

    We could discuss or we could just re-read any dozens of other threads. See the “Van Halen Needed Sammy Hagar To Survive” thread as an example where this topic and many others are discussed ad nauseam.

    I personally think it’s because he’s fat.

    Sammy needed some publicity for his book, and had to put that Ed stuff in there or nobody would be interested. Michael Anthony would never do that (Class act). Sammy though couldn't shut up.

    I've had some bad days in my life..days I'm not too proud of. Glad my friends don't publish a book about it.
    Right here I say....

    Sam's a flawed human. We are all flawed humans.
    Sometimes he loves Ed, and sometimes he is angry and hurt.

    Too simple.

    Amen.

    We should just have a "Van Halen sucks" thread stickied for general venting purposes, and all specific member venting can go in there as well. I know everyone feels like doing it every once in a while, but for us old timers, it has already been said a million times.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
