    Love or hate Sam, I'm really glad he defended Mike, however, I wonder if it was the tipping point for Sammy to say something since he probably was already pissed about the legal threats over his performing Van Hagar songs. In other words I wonder if Sammy would have issued that video if the legal threats weren't there. Also I wonder since EVH wasn't kind about Dave if Dave will say anything to defend himself or Mike.

    The ultimate protest by Mr. Hagar should be to never mention EVH or the name Van Halen ever again.

    Funny how for years everybody bitched (and not undeservedly) about Hagar rambling about Ed, then he finally just says f** you!, and everybody is cool with it

    Ironic indeed. But Ed crossed the line to again go after Mike with what is an obvious lie.

    Thanks, Sam.

    Yeah, and fuck you, Eddie. I never in a million years thought that I'd hate him. I do.

    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Maybe its because MA and I are both from Chicago, where people work hard and dont talk shit. I really feel the need to defend Mike. I saw Ed at his worst at the Tucson '04 show, but I forgave him because of his drinking, but theres no excuse for his behavior now.

    But there was a chapter in his book where he did say Ed told him exactly what to play.
    I believe it was the unpublished Hagar book, that had made it's way online years ago.
    I distinctly remember that being said.

    Yeah I tell my bass player from time to time what I want him to play too. He's hardly a hack. And that's not what Ed said. He actually needed a video camera to show him because he was basically a retard. Oh fucking please.

    Considering Ed needs his kid to show him
    how to play his own riffs now, it is ironic. He's also said that.

    in my experience bass players rarely add to songwriting... the guitarist usually brings in the new song/riff and shows the bass player. yes maybe they follow the guitar or come up with their own part.

    So Ed saying he "showed him every note to play" is extreme, can't fully be true. But also people are reading into this (negative) like ..... Ed's saying he had to show him what to play obviously because Mike was a hack. He didn't say that here. Eddie wrote the music, maybe all the bass lines too that he wanted for the song, so of course he had to show Mike what to play.
