    You are such a gas-head. Exactly what was he supposed to say in that situation, and precisely where did he bash Hagar? He merely explained the reality of the situation, to back up EVH's (his employer's) point.

    28 seconds of the interview delt with Hagar (probably the last guy on Earth that I'd normally defend, as he can speak for himself), the rest of the (and majority) was spent on the Roth "reunion" failure, to which you did not even allude to in the misleading thread title.

    As usual, terrific focus, Captain Clueless.

    I have that interview on tape, there's much more to it, there is even Alex and Gary on that show.

    WOW..Mike let Sammy have it there!! Are you joking? That was really lame. There are countless clips of Mike saying the same exact thing during their promotion of VHIII. Big friggin deal.

    So if Ed hated Mike for soo…. Long why didn’t he kick him out when they got Gary in the band?

    Geez I really dont want to hear the pregnant wife story again.




    You can tell Mike's wheels are turning in his head and he is uncomfortable. That guy probably went through more hell than we will ever know.

    This was the period were we started to lose ol' Eddie. He went from being that loveable, grining guitar hero we all loved - to this grumpy, bitter old, mad at the world, shit slinging, lead singer hating, dictator. And nowdays, nobody knows where his head is. He's become a hermit who doesn't do interviews or communicate with his fans. I think Michael Anthony felt really akward during that period. He didn't know what to say. I mean, didn't that interview seem really uncomfortable?

    Mike looked like he just wanted out of there. Damn, Ed was being an ass. I do think this was about the time he started to lose his shit.

    It is what it is.

    you(plural)help paint the same picture of bullshit with such a boisterous defense. this video is interesting and that about sums it up. INTERESTING. everybody and their profound conclusions. mikey jumped on the dog pile and you fuckin know it. big deal.

    I never knew that sammy's wife was pregnant in cali while sammy was in hawaii. is that true?

    like i said it is what it is for better or worse. it is what it is.
    If eddie were down and out on a sidewalk playing guitar I'd be next to him with a bottle and a blanky braving the cold. I would be sucking my thumb happily making chupa chupa noises in sync with the petroglyphic sounds that came from the mighty finger tips of Edward Van Halen.

    Um, exactly where were the 'shots' taken at Sammy?

    Eddymon, you gotta get over it. The Sammy years can hang with the DLR years. Just accept it and move on.

    Awkward

    I’ve always kinda felt for Mike. Regarding the interview, I think the poor guy just wanted to keep a job, and is gonna act in whatever manner that might help him do that.

    Job security is important, even when your heretofore brilliant superior turns apeshit. It’s generally best to just placate the insane…along with never making eye contact with them!
