    I just realized after listening to Not 4 Sale for the third time, that Sam says something along the lines of :
    "Have' a friend, makes a lot of million dollars, and is miserable"
    He syas somethin' like that,. . . couldthis be about Eddie

    You sure this is Hagar's lyrics ?

    I would have expected something like,

    I have a friend
    A friend to the end
    and friends are friends
    and love always mends...

    He said in Guitar World (issue with Tom Morrello on the cover) that Eddie was the first person that came to his mind with that lyric.

    Good observation! I never thought that lyric might be about Eddie, but it probably is!

    Ha ha ha, I would have never expected Daved "Holier than Thou" Mikalex to take a jab at Sammy.

    The exact lyric in reference is:

    Well, my friend's worth a couple million
    and he's miserable as any man can be
    He no fun, no sense of humor
    That ain't the way it's supposed to be
    "Just once I'd like to do the right thing and not get punished for it."

    That whole rhyming a word with the same word is a really common theme on this record.

    Really digging for those lyrics huh Sam?

    I wonder what Sammy's lyrics would be to describe
    "Not 4 Sale" ??

    Perhaps,

    Dont get me wrong, I am actually surprised at Hagar's above lyrics. No obvious attempts to rhyme the same words or trying to string together dumb cliche's... Though I guess he did attach a "that aint the way its supposed to be" on the end there just to make sure we know its a Sammy lyric !

    Hey RD,

    Don't you get it, by bashing Sam's lyrics, their guy looks like a poet or so they think. I'll take the lyrics off "Halfway to Memphis" over anything their guy chooses to release if and when he does so. "Oh wait I forgot the fuckin words" [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] , now that's cool. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Ok lets first get this strait,
    I aint a Red Head,
    I aint a Dave head,
    I'm a Van Halen head, I can't stand Roth bashing just as much as I can't stand Hagar bashing.
    I think Sam can write just as well as Dave, that being said, I'll exit this argument kindly

    When I first heard the song, I though Sammy sang, "Eddie's miserable as any man can be." I had to check Sammy's website because I was sure I was right. Not true in the lyrics but true in the idea.

    Okay, okay, I'll admit it... I called Daved "Holier-than-Thou," but only because he started it!
