    Rumor has it that Sammy Hagar is in talks with Van Halen about re-joining the band, touring and recording a new album. These are 100% untrue. Eddie, Alex and Mike have no desire to work with Sammy again. It is well known that Sammy battles with substance abuse, and Eddie has been sober for 6 years, that was a cause of friction the first time. The Dave reunion is going fine and will happen. Mike was always close with DLR and would pick him over Sam, Alex is also rumored to be getting close to DLR, and won't continue in the band without him, Alex is the business man and he sees dollar signs in DLR's eyes. Eddie also wants to do this to pay back his fans.

    This is the only thing I might believe especially since Al has been divorced twice. We all know how much money he's probably lost and the reunion album/tour would be the surest, quickest way to make some of it back.

    No offense Tucker, but even after two divorces, I doubt Al is exactly hard up for cash.

    Really? Is that true?
    I remember reading in magazines or interviews or what not that Mike did in fact get along quite well with Dave.

    Exactly, Mike was the last one willing to work with DLR... as in nobody else was willing to work with him.

    See?

    The thing I find the funniest is that they seem to think Dave doesn't do drugs either. Now that is horseshit.

    I think the point is about Sammy publically talks about his drinking and Cabo Tequila. ie: The tequila shot record or whatever that was.
    Mike drinks JD on stage, but maybe he isn't as big of an influence by not pushing it on Eddie.
    Mike was close to Dave at one time.
    Rock stars spend alot of money ( divorces, lawyers, managers, self promotion, big houses, rehab ect.)
    So maybe a little extra cash flow they would get by working with Dave again would help.
    Eddie probably brings in the most with endorsements and all so he is most likely the best off, and don't count out Val's income.

    Also, Alex was quoted as saying they were offered millions and millions (something about the GOP of Germany or something, I forget) to tour with Dave, but they didn't want to because it "wasn't right" in 96

    Tucker, I'm somewhat dumbfounded with your comments, Mike was closer with Dave than Sammy? and Sammy's substance abuse? Any long time fan of this band and it's members knows that Sammy and Mike were close. As for Dave, I'm sure Mike just tolerated him. As for Sammy's substance abuse, this is news to me. I know he likes to drink but I wasn't under the impression he had a "substance abuse" problem.

    I think the only thing Sammy suffers from is compulsive liar disease. You can't believe a fucking word that comes out of that fuckheads mouth. He is total bullshit. He is a washed up old geezer that is very, very bitter towards Eddie Van Halen.Peace out Sammy.
    As for Mike, he doesn't get paid to think. He is suppose to do what Eddie and Alex tell him to do. So, Mike's opinion is useless and pointless.Peace out Mike.
