    Default Best Sammy Hagar interview with positive comments about EVH

    OK, so some of you have been asking for YEARS for a Sam interview where he's positive about Ed and doesn't complain, etc, etc.

    That interview does exist, I've found it, it's from 2014, for some Utah station. Sam goes into the songwriting process with Ed in more details than I've ever heard. It's maybe the most music-oriented interview Sam has ever given. I think everyone will enjoy it:

    That's a great interview and I heard some stories about writing songs with VH that I've never heard before. Definitely worth a watch.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    That's cool, I'll watch the whole thing when I get home, surprised I haven't seen it before but it looks unfamiliar to me. Having said that, (and already regretting that I'm going to say this), I don't accept the assumption that Sammy is always bashing Eddie or the band, he's usually positive. Even though I know some people don't see it that way. Even his book is commonly referred to as "that book where he attacked Ed" when virtually all but one chapter is extremely positive about all things related to VH. But even if he does a long interview where he's either mostly positive or doesn't refer to VH the pull quote will still be something like "Hagar attacks Eddie!" . I can't count the number of times I've heard him say he regrets that they can't still be friends, and say that being in VH was the pinnacle of his career, and praising Eddie as a musician, etc. It's certainly 1000 times more than has happened in reverse. Hell, there are a bunch of examples where people still in the same band together attack each other more than he does.

    Sam should quit being a pussy and just call Edward and Al.

    Thanks for the link.

    I really enjoyed that interview and the in depth look at some of the Hagar era’s tunes and albums.

    Van Halen with Sammy brings back some great memories.

    Mike is all about the fans.

    Ed despises his fanbase.
    He also despises Sammy, and to a lesser degree, Mike.

    He’s a bitter old man. Too much substance abuse, ego etc.

    I’d love to see him own up to his mistakes but he never will.

    I don’t think, to the best of my observations, anyone’s ever said Mike only does it for the fans. Does what, exactly? Play in VH? He hasn’t done that in 15 years. It’s a superfluous point.

    Oh, lots of bands set up somewhere out of the blue, play for free, play in clubs, “only doing it for the fans.” Bigger bands than VH do it. VH might be the most fan-unfriendly outfit of the entire classic hard rock class. Well...Dave, Eddie, Wolfie, and Alex, anyway.

    The post 98 VH mantra? “Fuck you, pay my mortgage.”

    Because Dave came back for himself lol. Duh.

    Anybody who’s dumb enough to think Dave is overtly fan friendly, well...ask yourselves why he didn’t wanna jam with Sam and Mike in ‘02.

    Well this took a predictable old turn down the "Sam and Mike are saints who dont care about money and do everything for the fans" and "Dave and the Halens are the long arm of the Devil".

    Does this surprise you?
     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "But, fucking with Brook is like fucking with hot shit on and ax handle. You just don't get a grip"-track5

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen
