    They played the pre concert interview with Hagar on the Hartford radio station WCCC this afternoon. I'll post the highlights as I herd them. Like it, hate it I don't care. If anyone has the word for word interview feel free to post it. Sammy was very candid. The radio station DJ stated that Roth would not give an interview. They asked Hager if he and Roth would do a reunion concert with VH. Sammy said that could never happen because Roth will not go along and be sociable. He say's Roth locks himself in the tour bus and does not even socialize with his own band. Hagar thought that they would just relax and do some partying on this tour. Roth wanted no part of it. He said that Michael Anthony told him that Roth tried it 3 times in the studio with VH since 1998. He said Roth was in the studio for a total of over a year between that time and 2000 working on a new VH album. Eddie just can't work with what Roth brings to the table at this time. He said Roth just wants to do old stuff and Eddie is not ready for VH to become a nostalgia band. He said Roth always gets angry when he has to follow him, and Dave head lines. "I can attest to that by being at last night's concert". He also said that it was inevitable that he would be back in VH some day. He wants to do new music and bring VH back to where it once was."That line will be fautor for the Hagar haters." Sammy say's he is having a lot of fun on this tour. he has not seen Roth for 2 weeks now. He wanted to do a concert at Jones beach and Roth declined because he would only do Madison Square Garden. So Sammy is going to do a free concert and invite the 9/11 firefighters and NYPD. He stated the usual line "that he want's his friends back", when referring to Eddie and Al. He had his publisist contact Roth's publisist for the MTV award appearence. He said Dave will usually never turn down a national publicity opportunity.

    Sounds like Sammy is getting excited to play with Van Halen again.

    I bet they make up and become friends and we get some incredible music.

    I'll take new music with Dave, with Sammy, with Mikey singing...

    Anything.
    But
    Sammy seems way more stable than Dave.

    I guess they tried with Dave and it doesn't work.
    Maybe they should give us a few new dave songs on a best of VH2.

    And a new cd with Sammy.

    Maybe Roth feels like he doesn't have to do any talking, because Sam is doing all the talking about him, VH and Mike Anthony. Oh well, next week we're going to hear Roth is doing an interview and Sammy couldn't make it or something. Seems like they take turns or something. Anyway, I can't seem to decide whether or not I believe that they really hate each other or that this is all publicity.
    Van Halen without the original 4 is just not Van Halen.

    Alexfan, I think it may have started out that way to promote the concert. But I do think they do seriousley can't stand one another now. I can see Sammy wanting to party and just have a good time. His show spoke volumes to that fact last night. Roth's show was very cold, and really turned off the crowd in Hartford last night. The disc jockeys at WCCC did state they were getting loads of calls that Roth should hang it up. It could have just been a bad show, but the additude that once made Roth famous in the 80's just alienates the crowd today. It's still that "hey look at me" additude. He can't pull it off.

    I actually think Hagar has a point. If there's one problem with Roth...it's that he's still stuck in the 80s. DLR Band in '99 felt like a trip back to the 80s, which while fun for some of us, is just nostalgia to other people who have grown to different musical tastes. Hagar has adapted to the 90s better, that's not to say Roth can't--but Roth seems unwilling to change. That's the problem Roth has.

    Roth is still #1 in studio...but I'd prefer Sammy with VH. However, it's really apples and oranges--for us VH fans, anything will do.

    Isn't that the EXACT same quote Roth said a while back?

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-

    </font>[/QUOTE]Mard,I got that impression in the interview. The fact that Mike Anthony is playing wih him on part of the tour is suspicious. I don't want to go reading all this bullshit into it. I know Mike plays with him in Cabo Wabo so maybe it means nothing to the possibility of Sammy and VH getting back together.

    I'm glad Sammy has adjusted to the 90's (although this is 2002,that still puts Sammy 15 years ahead of Dave)

    Dave has seemingly learned nothing in his "lost decade" musically , personally , nothing.It will be interesting to see where he goes after this tour (it won't be VH to his dismay ,I predict)

    I agree Dream, except for the Rocknroll hall of fame induction I don't think you'll ever see Roth and VH on the same stage again. I believe Roth had his shot in trying to get back in VH but they just couldn't get it to work. I can't say weather or not they will go on with Hagar, I would like to see some new material within the next year weather with Sammy or some other new lead vocalist. I have not come to the conclusion that VH could not go on with a new lead vocalist, however I know that seems to be the majority consensus in this forum. If the Sammy reunion is going to happen I believe there will be an announcement by early next year. They may just head back into the studio quietly and see if they could be cohesive as a band again. What ever happens at that point is anyone's guess. The Fact that Mikey's doing some touring with Sammy may not mean anything to the possibility of Sammy reuniting with VH, but I do think it speaks volumes to the fact that Roth will not be rejoining VH. I don't see Mikey doing that if in fact Dave was coming back. No way.

    Look Dave has done alot of interviews on this tour, so what if he doens't want to do every interview? If Sam wants to hit every radio station, fine, let him. Sam loves to blab away, and jab at Dave. And well, I know why Sam does that.

    All I know is that Sammy Hagar back in Van Halen will be the biggest let down in Rock N Roll history.

    Van Halen is just a pimple on the ass of Rock and Roll, we think otherwise because they're something special to all of us, but to most Van Halen is "Van Who.......oh...that band with David Lee Roth and that gun slinger of a guitar player.....they were such an 80's thing."
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett
