Sammy Hagar continues to share his opinion of his former band Van Halen and their new studio album and tour with the man he replaced in the group, David Lee Roth.
Hagar shared his thoughts with the Los Angeles Times. “The fact that they’re [VH] out [on tour] right now, that’s so great; I’m so happy that they’re out doing it – but look how long it took,” says Sammy. “It’s so dysfunctional and who knows how long it will last like this and I just can’t be part of something like that.”
“I don’t think I ever slowed down and stopped trying to prove something in that damn band ’til the reunion in ’04, but by then it was too late,” continued Hagar. “Eddie was shot at that point, though I heard he’s great now, and I’m really happy that he’s supposedly sober and playing great and doing good. People think, ‘Oh you hate the guy.’ I don’t hate the guy, I love the guy. I hate what he did in ’04 to me on the reunion tour, but other than that I still love the guy.” more on this story
