    Hmm..ok, I won't mince words. Gary Graff, Launch.com's source for the
    Sammy Hagar "Dave is out of Van Halen" soundbite, claims the clip is real.

    He now works for the Oakland Press in Pontiac Michigan. I spoke with him at 12:30 eastern time on Monday, September 11, 2000.

    He was a bit cagey about when he exactly interviewed Sammy..but he stands by the story with a
    less than satisfying "everything is as it appears".

    Now, 1-248-745-2771 is his office # and another listed # is 1-248-644-3556.

    Remember that at worst we're still just talking about a Hagar quote here, not
    anyone who is still with the band..but Graff knows about the quote and
    upholds its veracity.

    Who can say at this point?

    You would think if it was 100% legit that he'd be more than willing to offer up information such as exactly when the interview took place.

    I also know he's "dead-on" in his facts. I'm curious on the 3W?

    Let's just hope that, if indeed the clip is real, that it's just Sammy shooting his mouth off. He's not in the band anymore, so I don't see how he could know the intimate details of the band's situation.

    Believe me, Glenn, Gary Graff is THE ULTIMATE insider. His contacts are incredible. He's phoned Ed at his house, and was talking to him on the radio more than once.

    Sammy is no longer in VH, frankly he doesn't know jack about what's going on with the band anymore.

    What's this all about?
    I am trying to find out where the story came from.

    What did sammy say? I can't see anything at launch.com and this topic seemed to start mid-thought. Please let us know!

    Thanks!
    Didn't know where to look.

    Wow. I think this may be sam, but doesn't sam have more of an accent than that? or here's hoping anyway.

    Whatever the case, if Van Halen is not with DLR, I would hope they would announce something soon to that effect. This has been said before, but they've killed all other rumours. If they don't kill this one, and then announce someone else is singing, you'll have a lot of let down fans.... and low album sales.

    Their title as "America's favourite rock band" won't last any more either.

    I still think this is a fake. If it isn't then lets hear the ENTIRE interview, not just what he wants us to hear.

    How do we know Sammy doesn't have connections to the band? I bet plenty of people still work for VH that liked Sam and would tell him stuff if he asked. Or maybe someone that works for the band called Sam and volunteered the info. Or maybe Mikey called Sam to renew their friendship, and he told Sam that things are screwed up again. Who knows? We sure don't. I don't think we can assume anything at this point. Maybe even MTV knows things are screwed up, and decided it was okay to make fun of them at the awards. I hope not on all fronts, but we just don't know, do we?

    Amen, TopTimmy. Indeed, where is the rest of this supposed interview?? Why just play that one part? Makes no sense.

    Sammy's not in VH anymore, so how can we accept anything he says as truth rather than just another stupid rumor? He's been so busy recording and writing his new album, along with all the prmotional crap that goes along with releasing a new record...how could he have time to even think about his former bandmates?
