    I know there was no love betwixt Val and Dave. How 'bout Val and Sam. I find it hard to believe anyone couldn't get along with Sam. I wonder if Val was secretly bummed when they ousted Sam.

    Read the unofficial last 2 chapters of Hagar's book, dude. It's in there.
    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    This is a good question, how about posting the general answer so those of us that really don't want to get the book can get an idea [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Val hated Sammy...he'd leave half-empty glasses of tequila all over the place, and half the time he didn't use coasters...

    Definitely read the two chapters of Sam's book that was posted somewhere. He talks about Val and says he hopes she thinks well of him, in a nutshell. He said when Ed wanted to go buy drugs, she'd ask Sam to help her stop him, and he'd say, "Man let's go to the studio and work." Anyways that's basically all he said.

    I saw her guest host on Regis and someone asked her about VH and she said that she was much more partial and a fan of the Roth era. So who knows? I know musically she has stated Classic VH.

    Who knows, but if she's like most wives of rockers - she probably didn't like Sammy or Roth.
    Lead singers are typically "starved" for attention and the spotlight...This typically leads to women, booze, drugs, the whole party scene...As a wife - those things are all pretty threatening....It's funny because as a musician, your talent is what drives a woman to you...She loves you for your charisma, personality, presence, confidence......Once the ring goes on, those are the same facets that they can't stand anymore...It's all about jealousy and keeping your catch...So, I'm sure both Roth and Sammy represented danger as far as influencing Eddies' life, habits, extracurricular activities...

    At this stage I doubt that she even cares. She has probably grown bored of watching the bad do absolutely nothing for the past 2 plus years too. But if there was a choice for her to get along with more, I am sure that it would be Sam. His peronality seems like he is more likely to at least try to make the relationship work.

    Who cares?

    I really don't think she has a right to influence Van Halen's career. It would be like Edward choosing her co-stars or something. If she didn't like Dave or Sammy because Ed went drinking or did drugs with them or out scouting women, she's off target with trying to give either the boot because Ed is an adult who should no better and even if you replace Dave or Sammy, he's just going to go find someone else to do it with.

    There's a guy in my husband's office who's a real prick, but if he invited him over for dinner because it would make his working relationship with the guy easier, I'd shut up and give the asshole the best dinner he'd ever had. Otherwise, I don't have to have anything to do with him and it should be the same thing for Valerie.

    It's one thing to look out for your man's best interest and it's another thing to keep him on a leash.
    Could this be magic?

    It was just a question TransAmChick.

    It's a not Trans Am. It's a 1984 Camaro Z28 with a stroked 383 engine in it that gets me about 420 hp. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    They probably weren't friends per se but I think they got along.
