    Default Excellent Sammy Hagar interview, includes some positive VH stuff

    This is a really, really good interview with Sam. He seems to have let go a lot of things, check it out:

    Solid. Truth is, every interview he’s ever done has positive stuff about VH.

    Yeah...that bit about CF. It’s Chad. Always has been. We’d have a lot more CF if it weren’t for the Peppers’ mad touring.

    No way! There are interviews containing exclusively negative things from this guy.

    A man in his early 70's and just cool as fuck.

    Say whatever you want about the guy (and I'm a diehard classic VH fan), but he is just one cool fucking guy.

    Good interview.

    Whoops. Here you are in a Sammy thread, AGAIN, despite the fact you supposedly don't enter them to stoke fires. Surprise, you're a liar. Also, I should go get your last few "I don't enter Sammy threads to start shit' shit starting posts. Maybe I'll do that just to prove you're a flip flopping shit starter.

    Settle down, Cartman. Despite popular grind, this board isn't really designed for arguing.

    But that doesn't change the fact that Extreme sucks.

    I was worried about that since the beginning. As soon as I giggled like a school girl when I heard "Future in the Past" and "Turnin' Left" for the first time because I enjoyed it so much, my thought process was "...any chance this guy is gonna quit the....Red Hot Chili Peppers?"

    And knowing that was basically an impossibility I was in "oh shit this isn't going to last that long" mode immediately.

    Such is the world of Van Halen and everything VH-related.

    That goes for you too, Nuno!

    I know they like the guy, but I don't know why they wouldn't just replace him...they Sammy, Joe, Mike dynamic is more important anyway....at least IMO.

    Well they did for the III Tour and didn't like the result....or at least Sam didn't. I think Joe would take CF in any form he could get. Considering Joe wrote all the music, I bet it kills him that he never really has the means to play them live.

    I dunno about that. I think Chad's an important part of CF....his skin tone is unique. I understand why Sam doesn't wanna do it without him. Some chemistry is hard to replicate, some chemistry is impossible to replicate. I certainly had a couple of great shows on the III tour in 2011 with Aronoff on the drums, but...it wasn't near the same sound or nuance as the initial CF '09 live outings.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Hagar is 71, and he could be living his life in a self serving way. Instead, as much as Sammy lives to enjoy life, he likewise works at things that spread goodness around.

    You gotta respect him for that.
