    Default Sam's New Book - Your review, thoughts, etc.

    FROM EDDIE TRUNKS TWITTER
    @therealedtrunk

    Just landed in Newark. Read a good amount of Sammy Hagars book. Real good. VH live album was a total studio creation he says

    Hagar admits to screwing 5 chicks or more a night under the stage on the For Unlawful tour during Eddie's solo.

    Wore a robe when he came back on stage to cover his hard on! Great stuff in this.
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    5 chicks in 15 minutes? Not sure that is something to brag about.

    Sammy. Fastest gun in the West.

    Or, just maybe, could he be, um, exaggerating?

    I might as well be the first to say it....

    Sammy needs to ...

    I have been saying for a very long time that RHRN was SHIT and nothing but a studio thing.

    So has a lot of people, why Sam would treat that as some kind of revelation is beyond me.

    I'm getting the feeling that if this is the type of stuff Sam put in the book, we're in for another shit slingfest when they both start promoting their new projects by doing interviews.

    Too bad they could have never released a cd of LWAN, that would sound awesome!

    Not being a guitar player, what did Eddie do so differently to make his sound so "processed" sounding. Too much electronic sounding to me, it was a bit better for Balance but that whole period of F.U.C.K. and RHRN was just horrendous.

    Hopefully the new shit will be more "vintage" Eddie Van Halen sounding.

    No....not really. But without a book feeding the fire, I would think that they'd all be ready to move on from that stuff and just concentrate on what they're doing now.

    Now, in every interview they do, the actual new music questions will be secondary to the "confirm or deny" sensationalism questions of the TMZ public.

    "I'm getting the feeling that if this is the type of stuff Sam put in the book, we're in for another shit slingfest when they both start promoting their new projects by doing interviews."

    I'm betting that's a good reason for the timing of all this......Good publicity for all things Sammy Hagar and Van Halen.

    I'll take a backseat to the shit-slinging if there is any, frankly that's what Van Halen's been all about the last 25 years. Might make for a good time.

    When VH and Chickenfoot are ready to release their respective projects, this board is gonna reach the point of a nuclear war. Sure Sam may have some things in his book, but let's face it, a book has been on Sam's "to do" list for quite awhile.

    When the albums are ready to go, and coincidentally they both went into the studio at the same time, that's when the shit will really hit the fan. And I'll have my popcorn and front row seat on all the action.
    In and out. I didn't even make that pun on purpose.

    I'm no tech guy, but a lot of it has to do with how Ed is driving his stuff....used to be that Ed was overdriving the amp section of his amplifier, whereas he's TRYING to get that same effect by overdriving the preamo section now.

    Not only that but what kind of women are willing to stand there for their "turn"?? Yuck!!
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
