    This. Just STFU. But as Zahzoo said, Sam never shut up.

    Whether we want to admit it or not, we all want to peek behind the curtain. We don't want to pull it back and see rainbows and unicorns. We want dark clouds and monsters. Humans thrive on that shit. I'm glad Sam pulled back the curtain and further exposed the dysfunction. At least we had greater context.

    But in the light of Ed's passing it just seems lame to keep mentioning how SAM felt. Idc how he felt anymore.

    I don't care if he has regrets.


    I wanna see the curtain pulled back on Sam. He didn't get to be where he's at by NOT walking over people but his image is that of a totally blessed philanthropist musician. He walked over people.

    Fuck him.
    Another hot piece of ass that was literally devoid of the paranoid drama the previous one had.

    Personally, I’m believing more and more that Sammy’s ego couldn’t stand not being “the man” in CF. Cause if his only other excuse was that CF cost him too much money, that’s gotta be it.

    And since I brought it up and it’s still so stupid....Sammy saying CF cost him too much money must have ‘really’ meant that he didn’t like what the other guys were getting paid. Because the upfront costs of recording/touring with The Wabos or The Circle couldn’t be have been that much different.

    It was pulled back a bit last year when the guy worth over hundred million said, “People gotta die of something...” when he was talking about the risks of Covid vs it hurting the economy.

    I get it that Sam is now waxing nostalgic and feeling guilty about shit that went down. My question though is, if he was supposedly in regular contact with Ed leading up to his death, did he tell this to Ed? We'll never know I guess. I've always been pissed about the dirty laundry in that book, but why bring it up now and for what? Day late and a dollar short.

    Sounds like it. I used to be in the Sam cult.

    Once Ed's gone. It's all gone.

    He really does need need to STFU. I'm glad they made up though.

    So I guess that's it then. Shut er down Brett. I guess we're all gonna move on and not talk about things that relate to Van Halen, on the Van Halen message board.

    Truth be told, I have no issue with Sam. Everyone knows I'm partial to the Dave era, but Sam came into a nearly impossible situation in 1985 and did about as well as anyone could have. Also, by all indications from those who have met him, Sam is a very cool and down-to-earth guy. Lack of closure can be a bitch. Sam was able to make peace with Ed, but he will always long for the way it was when he first joined Van Halen.

    Default SAMMY HAGAR Wishes He'd Been 'A Little More Conservative About VH ' In Autobiography

    I’ll put my hand up as I have in the past...the Sam era of Van Halen deserved a much better send off than it got in 2004.

    The fact that the 2004 Reunion Tour was the bookend to that era of the band is terribly sad. Some diehard Roth fans might love that it was a shit show and Ed cleaned up his act for the Roth tours but those 12 years deserved better. And if Sam was upset about that writing the book, I’d understand 100%. They deserved Eddie, at the very least, at his 07/08 level. 2012 or 2015 would have made it spectacular.

    At the same time, Sam should have never signed the contract until Eddie got himself together and I’m sure there’s some regret about that.


    But in this interview you were talking about how the Bros ruthlessly “threw you out of the band” in 1996 and how that related to you writing honestly about the 2004 Tour and Van Halen in your 2011 book, Sam.

    Put it the fuck to bed. Ed’s gone. The band is done. You have a beautiful, healthy family with beautiful houses and profitable business ventures. You probably make more in a year off residuals sitting at one of your palatial, beachfront properties than most people make in five.

    Move the fuck on and stop talking about how you were thrown out of VH.
