    Default Hagar radio ad in Houston features EVH bashing

    I was visiting family in Houston this weekend, and heard a radio ad promoting Sammy's upcoming concert there. Initially, I was drawn in out of curiosity. At the very beginning of the ad, it sounded like he bashed Roth's voice, but I couldn't be sure. I scrambled and turned on my phone sound recorder and captured the rest of the ad. When I heard what came next, my jaw became absolutely disconnected and my eyeballs were several car lengths ahead... Here it is:



    This represents a new low -- at least for me it does. I cannot imagine being any more disgusted with the guy.

    that's an older clip actually. he was interviewed after Ed's billboard interview came out and that was his response when asked if Ed ever had to teach Mike how to play his parts with a video camera or whatever drivel Ed tried to pass off in that interview.

    Sam was sticking up for Mike. Should he have? Don't know. It's not for me to say I guess.

    If Sammy approved that ad then yeah it's a new low. In fairness, that could just be the radio station's doing. I would think his management team would have to approve, but I'm not sure.

    It would really be funny if some day a video surfaces of Eddie showing Mike the bass lines. I don't think he taught Mike how to play bass, but maybe he did show him how he came up with certain things while writing the music. Who knows, but Mike is a big boy and at this point he needs to grow a set and stand up for himself.

    I have never bought that whole "Well, this is just what they're doing to promote the show down there, I don't have anything to do with it" deal.

    I can't believe that Sammy would go in 100% on expensive paid radio ad placements with absolutely zero clue about the content of the ads. His goal is to sell tickets. I have a hard time believing that he'd turn over the responsibility wholesale with no input. What if the ads started and ticket sales were stagnant? I think Sammy would then be forced into a position to say, "Hey, why are tickets not selling? What's up with the radio ads? I want to hear them." Then he'd be forced to make expenses changes to the ad and ad schedule, and he'd be doing so in a damaged market. Knowing the kind of business man that Sammy is, I absolutely doubt with all of my heart that he would allow such a scenario to play out. He's more calculating than that.

    Believe me, I know where the audio came from. But no matter how you slice it, cut it, rearrange it, etc. -- the ad contains the line "Fuck you, Eddie Van Halen. You're a liar." -- within the context of an ad for a Sammy Hagar concert.

    Unreal.

    All I heard was the "F-you, EVH. You're a liar." Wasn't this around the time that Sam put out his video rebuttal, towards Ed's claims about Mike's video bass lessons tripe?

    I really doubt Sammy or anyone from his camp has even heard the ad let alone had any input on it. I bet he didn't even pay for it other than give the station free tickets to give away.

    It's an ad for the radio station to get people to listen for their ticket giveaway, it's not really promoting his concert. Obviously they have to mention the concert because they're giving away tickets to it, but it's not really promoting Sammy's show, it's promoting their contest.


    That's how I took it anyway, but I don't hate Hagar, so I'm not listening the same way others may

    it's a local radio stations ad for a contest they are holding to give away tickets to a concert. Sammy didn't have anything to do with it....lol.

    the people who don't like Sam anyway are going to be "outraged" again by something he said months ago....lol, really? Honestly, some of you guys just make me laugh at this point. You go out of your way to trash pretty much everything the guy does, do you really think he gives a flying fuck if you are "outraged" because of a comment he made in response to an interview someone made trashing his best buddy?

    honestly, I don't even think this is thread worthy, it should just be merged with the "random shit" thread.

    WTF Kevin, this is just a radio station milking an old video made after the billboard interview. It's done in poor taste, by the station, and has nothing to do with sammy. It worked, though, since it made you react.

    honestly, I can't imagine having a guy so far in my head that I have to rush to record a commercial just so I can post it on a site that I come to daily to rag on that same guy.....lol.

    All you guys that don't like Sammy seem to keep tabs on him more closely than the people who actually like the guy....that is the definition of "winning"

    it's amazing really. I mean the other day there was a video of Sam doing Mine All Mine in Cabo the other day, before I even knew it existed (and I'm kind of a big Sam fan) there were already people who are avid Dave fans ragging him for it...I mean what do they do? Sit around and wait for a vid of Sam so they can turn around and be the first person to rag on it on this site? I mean, is it really shocking that someone who can't stand Sammy is "shocked" because Sammy said "fuck you Ed"? Are they really so outraged? I doubt it.
