    COULD A YEAR OFF HAVE SAVED VAN HAGAR? SAMMY THINKS SO

    Martin Kielty
    July 17, 2021

    Former Van Halen members Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony discussed the personality and wardrobe failings of the band’s Balance tour of 1995, which led to the lineup’s collapse.

    In a new post on their Van Halen / Other Half Facebook page, containing a clip from a live performance of “Aftershock,” singer Hagar speculated that the group could have survived if they’d taken a different approach to the problems they were dealing with at the time.

    Sammy: Well, I nearly totally forgot about this song. It was a rough time in the band. I had just gone through a three-year, brutal divorce, and obviously wasn't concerned about my stage outfit hahaha!!!

    Those are actually red Rocker overalls, a prototype. Thank God I never made them hahaha.

    That’s a bad ass track we will be adding to the Circle setlist.

    As good as we played on the Balance Tour, there was a darkness that was coming into the band - we weren't having the fun we used to have and you could feel the end of Van Hagar era was coming on this tour.

    Looking back now, Alex was in the neck brace and Ed was pre-hip surgery & in a lot of pain. Makes me wish we could go back and have taken that whole year off. Makes you wonder what could've been ��❤️

    Mike: Sammy is totally right about not having the fun that we had in the past on stage.

    Alex and Eddie were both suffering from their ailments and there was much more of a seriousness to everything live then there had been in the past.

    There was also not as much interaction between the four of us on stage on this tour. I don’t know if that was because of Sammy‘s overalls or what. It’s a good thing Sammy ended up not making those, that look is better left on a farm!!

    Here’s the Instagram post. These guys are sitting on a few IMAG/soundboard recordings off at least 90s era tours.

    Does it say what show that is from? I'm guessing the last leg of the tour as Ed is playing a Wolfgang prototype and not an EBMM.

    I think he's right, how many of us kept trying to force a relationship to work when some time off might have been the key? Or burnt out at work but didn't take time off?

    Loved the music that the tension resulted in though, wish we could have got even a little more Balance/Crossing Over/Humans Being

    Sammy should have worn those overalls to Farm Aid in 1985 ...
