    Default Hagar Talked With Alex Prior To Hall of Fame

    During the press conference after the Hall of Fame Induction, Hagar mentioned he talked with Alex after the death of his mother, days before the ceremony. Appearantly, Eddie wasn't on the call because his rehab center doesn't allow it.

    Hagar added, "Al called about that and said, 'Hey, Ed and I -- Ed's not able to talk on the phone from where he is -- but [we] want you to know that [we're sorry]. To me, that's a big deal. I called them when their mother died in the middle of the heat of the whole thing. It was after the tour, we weren't getting along. But that's things you do, your friends do that."

    Nice gesture by AVH. Hopefully Ed can get help and these guys can at least be friends.

    Oh dammit, the glass is half full again!

    Good to hear.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    They all have more class/integrity than we give them credit for, even Dave. Glad to hear about that.
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    I'd agree with that.

    It is so great to hear that 50 year old men acted like, well 50 year old men.

    It's hillarious we have to float their boat whenever they do something any 20 year old would do, let alone 50 year old.
    Right here I say....

    It's still hard to believe these guys are in their 50's.

    All differences aside, these are nice guys. Alex has always said that their biggest disagreements have been about the music. I don't think they have little voodoo dolls wishing ill on the other as some would have you think especially about Ed.
