    Default Open Letter to Sammy

    Van Halen’s 4 plus year hiatus has fans scratching our heads. What is going on?
    If Illness is the issue, than it’s pretty obvious, that Ed’s health is 100% his primary focus. End of Story.
    All along the way, it has occurred to me that Sammy Hagar seems to pop up with a new interview shortly after anything VH related surfaces.

    When did Sammy become the spokesman for the band????
    He says he just answering the questions that are posed to him.
    Come on dude, have you ever heard of the mantra’ “next question”?
    Or, it’s" not my place to say” ????


    He’s seems always at the ready to give his take on what’s wrong VH & how he’s such a happy guy and better off without them.
    Then in the next breath, he want’s closure with the brothers….

    The list of self righteous chatter is beyond silly. Gross in fact

    BTW, thanks for Giving Michael Anthony permission ( like he needs your blessing) to clean his slate for the possible reunion tour that didn’t materialize (boy, i wished it had though - the reunion tour)

    Thanks for the video awhile back telling Eddie to go F himself or F' OFF.
    Another video out there references Ed as the devil or something silly.

    Thanks for the book where you aired out all your dirty laundry about Ed. Good for you buddy. You were just “being honest”



    Thanks for reminding how much better was with you singing than Dave. How much more range you have than Dave.
    You trashing Dave, doesn’t make me like you more.

    You are an incredible success in your own right. Powerhouse singer…. But, your lyrics are by in large, very “vanilla”.
    Bottomline, lyrically, you have never written anything better than the first four VH records.
    Stop telling us how you hated singing JUMP. We all know the song has silly lyrics. The riff is iconic and gets played in sports arenas around the nation.
    Go back and listen with open ears to the first four albums & tell me Roth was a poor lyricist .


    Here’s a news flash Sammy, the original 4 band members of VH created something wonderful, that had not been heard or seen before
    They were the Architects of something AMAZING. Van Halen is possibly the greatest hard rock debut of all time.
    Let me tell you, as a kid in 1978, that LP alone made me push my other fav albums aside for a good long time
    I’m still taking time out of my busy life, because i am a fan of this band. Right or Wrong, I still somehow care.

    Does VH have a history of being dysfunctional…. Hell yes, but it’s still my band!!
    That music will be in my head till the day i pass.

    Please stop trashing the legacy and please stop making it about you Sam. Move on for Gods sakes.
    You were handed the keys to an established phenomenon - super star band who were Rock Royalty
    No pun intended, all you had to do was not “crash” the Ferrari
    Your time in VH was super successful, but it was different. Not better, just different.

    Next time you get asked to do an interview, talk about your music & your band. I really dig The Circle!!
    Your band is pretty awesome! They might enjoy hearing about it, without all the VH chatter
    End of Rant. - CV

    Especially not every thought in the same thread/post?

    Feel better?

    In the time it took you to type your wadded panties over a celebrity who couldn't care less about some random dude's rant, you could've planted two trees, or cooked a bacon-wrapped meatloaf for your elderly neighbors.

    Let's close this open letter to Sammy.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Every time I think I have read the dumbest post in the history of the Links, someone comes along and proves me wrong.

    Kudos.

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

    While I have at times criticized Sam for 2nd wife syndrome, is there an actual goal in mind here? Did I miss some big thing Same did to trigger this? It feels out of place in context and time. This feels similar to random Dave sucks balls posts etc.... in being random and unnecessary regardless of agree or disagree more like why, what is the point of this.
