    I have seen him play live about 5-6 times. Worth seeing for sure

    You're so full of shit. That was Thomas Dolby. Yeah, that Thomas Dolby who Ed called personally on what was required in building a professional studio. Tom did it Quid pro quo if Ed played on one of his albums.


    Which he did:

    Oh so Thomas Dolby was the head contractor and ran the construction crew. I see. I guess you know more about it than David Bertinelli does.

    Naw. Sammy Hagar is Ted Nugent’s little buddy. Sam likes tall rugged men.

    I dunno.

    It wouldn't be hard to imagine that the remaining principals - Roth, Alex, Michael Anthony, Wolfgang...what the hell, throw Hagar in there - wouldn't agree on what would constitute a fitting tribute to Eddie Van Halen at this point, or what form said tribute should take.

    Maybe they do. Who the fuck knows?

    The thing of it is...the band were sort of able in the last decade of their existence to get themselves sorted out to the point where they could perform the CVH stuff live and it sounded good, and sometimes even great. But the key factor there is that it took them that long just to be able to sort themselves out and get to that point...and this was while Eddie was still alive.

    There's also the aspect of timing, in that it feels to me this tribute should have already taken place last year if it was going to happen at all.

    Yeah, you're probably right about that.
    The longer it takes (if anything does happen,) people will be like "WTF took so long?!" and that overshadows the event/tour/tribute/whatever...

I do hope he is holding up this terrible idea for a tribute show or whatever that will undoubtedly feature - much like those horrible tribute albums that have come out in previous decades that I am sure you may have come across - a ton of geetar shredders and EVH wannabees. To fucking hell with that.

    That ain't what VH was for me. It was DLR + EVH, then the other two.

    Just let it lie, FFS.

    One of the apparent paradoxes for me about VH is that while they were great at covering other people's tunes, everyone who tries to cover them is shit.

    Why the hell is that?

    For one it's cos no one can do Roth. It's because they don't get his influences.

    Yay! Way to go Dave!! I can’t wait to see Sammy Square Pants Hagar come out publicly and scold Dave for ruining another opportunity for Sam to self-promote himself.

    Sam is such a tool.

    One of the supposed big reasons nothing happened with a tribute is the fact that Alex didn't want you there and wants nothing to do with you. Assclown.

    Dave wanted Mike. Mike then wanted Sam. Alex said no to Sam hence why Newstead was brought into the convo.

    Something like that.

    Hagar said something in a recent interview along the lines of both he and Mike have tried to contact Alex a few times since Ed passed away, but Alex hasn't returned either of their calls.

    A lame thing to talk about in an interview.

    Like, so now we've gone from Sam talking about how he spoke with Ed in the last year of his life to Sam talking about how neither he nor Mike has spoken to Alex since Ed died?

    There's just no bottom with Hagar re: talking about Van Halen in interviews.

    It's like, fuck, dude, just say "I was in the band, I had a great time when I was in the band, it ended badly, the reunion tour wasn't great, I wish it could have ended a better way, it didn't. Ed, sadly, has passed. That's it. There's nothing left to say, because everything else I mentioned has been talked about a million times before." Don't act like some sulking teenager whining about being ghosted.

    So Mike says he talks to Alex all the time.... but Sammy says Al won't talk to him or Mike?

    Well, obviously somebody's lying. And I don't think it's Sobolewski. Just a hunch.....

    The Van Halens threw Mike under the bus a long time ago. You think Al would give Sam the time of day after the stuff he said about his brother? It's too late to do a tribute. That horse left the barn and is gone. I think Al is going to live a private life. He never played with any other bands. With Ed gone I think the man is going to retire and stay away from the circus and attention whores like Sammy Hagar.

    Sam is a attention whore. Most people with his kind of money would enjoy it in private. Sam has to be in your face all the time. He's on the radio, he's on television, he's on podcasts, he's playing the casino down the road. The dude won't go away. He's the whore of whores. But he runs his mouth and says stupid shit. He's said more demeaning stuff about Eddie and Roth to his credit did a few jabs here and there but never went to the expose level Hagar did. Eddie did say one thing about Hagar. It was all about the money for Sam. Well look at the guy, he's knocking on the window trying to constantly promote himself and he says Van Halen shit because it gets attention. We are talking about it right in here. We would be smart to just ignore the annoying fuck.

    The recent interview was on...Blabbermouth, and in the Blabbermouth article it said Hagar had told Ultimate Classic Rock (whatever that is) that as of last year that was the situation.

    So, I suppose according to Blabbermouth - who got it from Ultimate Classic Rock who got it from Hagar - that at some point in 2021 Hagar and Mike had reached out to Alex, but Alex hadn't communicated back with either of them.

    Fuckin christ it's like teenaged girl shenanigans describing the Telephone Game between these fucks.

    Of course. I wouldn't doubt that the only thing that may be truthful about the whole thing is that a phone call was made and that yes they did talk.

    To what extent and what was talked about and for how long no one knows.

    I fail to see what everybody is so upset about. It was an inevitability that S P A M M Y would make this reunion or even rumors of a reunion all about himself. With his shitty inane ballad rock and corporate producers like Mick Jones S P A M M Y made Van Halen what they are today: a forgettable dog and pony act that used to have a charismatic singer and viable good tunes. I hope you all understand that S P A M M Y wants you to have no fun whatsoever at a reunion show. So pay your outrageous ticket price and be brow-beaten with a tequila alcoholic/cocaine abuser who is so god damn in love with himself.

    S P A M M Y is going to make sure that this will be the last enjoyable Van Halen related show you'll ever see and hear.

    Fuckin christ it's like teenaged girl shenanigans describing the Telephone Game between these fucks.
    Alex is a big Porsche enthusiast. Has been for years. I can relate because my brother was one. He loved that the same car you could use as a daily driver could also be a weekend race car. On top of that Porsche is a customer focused company and not like Ferrari who expects you to kiss their ass.

    Alex and Eddie both were really talented armature race car drivers. There’s a track in LA where Alex would drive all the time. He’s well known there. Word is after Ed passed away it hit Alex hard. He stopped going to the track, people haven’t seen him.

    So I doubt Alex contacted anyone about a tribute. Ed’s funeral was private. Supposedly they sprinkled his ashes in the Pacific Ocean. One thing for sure the family wanted privacy in the matter and didn’t want Ed’s grave to become some kind of shrine.

    So it was probably Hagar who tried to contact Al and suggest a tribute. Why would Al contact Sammy? Especially after he talked shit about Eddie.

    Sam likes to ejaculate his cheese batter all over the VH fan base. It’s a fetish he can’t help. To this day he still can’t believe the Van Halen’s were fucked up enough to let him in the band.

    He would love the one my oldest boy recently took delivery of. Not sure which one it is, but it cost him $300k.

    Most likely, yes. Alex has never - to my knowledge - played or recorded with anybody other than Eddie, and also seems to suffer from some form of osteoporosis, just as Eddie did (hence the whole neck brace thing from the VDIII tour). So at the age of 69, I'd say there's zero chance that he would "start over" in the music industry. That's also why I'm guessing that he would be more likely to support the idea of a single "tribute" concert, as opposed to an entire national/international tour of "Almost Van Halen"

    Alex only played with Ed. His entire career. So why would he change? The neck injury was from a water skiing accident. Al quit drinking way before Ed did and I don’t know if he still smokes. He was on some Porsche show a few years back and he looked pretty healthy. He could slam a car around the track that’s for sure.

    But Al’s philosophy according to Wolfgang is nothing about Van Halen is discussed unless it’s definitely a sure deal. I’ve also heard him say if you bought tickets to a VH show they are obligated to show up and give you the best show possible. What goes on in the process of creating the music, the runnings of the band or their private lives is nobody’s business. Nobody is going to know what Al is going to do because he doesn’t show his hand. Never did.

    I was going to post something about the supposed "lovefest" between EVH and Sam..., but when I started searching online to refresh my memory of it, this came up from a few hours ago. Seriously?:

    https://ultimateclassicrock.com/samm...en-dream-song/

    "I shouldn’t be hyping it now," Hagar tells UCR. "Nobody knows this but Michael Anthony, Jason [Bonham] and Vic [Johnson]. About two months ago, I had this dream and Eddie came. We were in a room like this, [with] a bunch of people around. It was just like he’d been gone. It was not like he was passed, but he had just been out of my life and we hadn’t seen each other for a while. He’s going, 'Man, let’s write some music!' I said, 'Yeah, fuck it, man. Here, let’s go!'"

    Hagar says they "went over into a corner, in this room. He had a guitar and he played me this thing. It was like this lick – [just like] the last lick that Eddie Van Halen showed me, when I went back for the [2004] reunion tour and when he was a mess. I said, 'Eddie, show me your newest shit,' because every time I’d be around him I’d say, 'Show me your newest shit.' He’d say, 'Oh, check this out!'" In the dream, "he did this harmonic thing and he slid it up to a chord, like a slide guitar. We wrote a song with that lick," Hagar adds. "I remembered it. I got up in the morning and I wrote the song. It’s called, 'Thank You.' I used the fuckin’ lick that he showed me in the song. I told Jason, 'I just really don’t know what to say lyrically.' I’ve got goosebumps, head to toe, [talking about it]. So I wrote it [about that experience], and we’ll do that song someday."...

    ...""Now, that’s going to be an Eddie-influenced song, to the point that I’m going to co-write it with him. I’m going to give him credit and then maybe we’ll donate the money to charity, whatever," Hagar says. "You see, I feel so embarrassed about it because everyone’s going to say, 'Oh, look at Sammy trying to capitalize on Eddie.' No, I’m not. You don’t understand. This was a real fuckin’ dream, and I told you exactly what happened in it..."

    I'll say this: Alex Van Halen is a way better drummer than baldy butt Jason "Nepotism" Bonham. Not being that great of a Van Halen fan myself Alex always seemed to get the raw deal in his own musical talent being in Eddie's shadow. Eddie never would have sounded and/or played as good without him. Jason Bonham is a Ginger Baker wannabe hack with a lot of rich daddy money. He has nowhere near his father's talent. The fool here is him.

It was like this lick – [just like] the last lick that Eddie Van Halen showed me, when I went back for the [2004] reunion tour and when he was a mess. I said, 'Eddie, show me your newest shit,' because every time I’d be around him I’d say, 'Show me your newest shit.' He’d say, 'Oh, check this out!'" In the dream, "he did this harmonic thing and he slid it up to a chord, like a slide guitar. We wrote a song with that lick," Hagar adds. "I remembered it. I got up in the morning and I wrote the song. It’s called, 'Thank You.' I used the fuckin’ lick that he showed me in the song. I told Jason, 'I just really don’t know what to say lyrically.' I’ve got goosebumps, head to toe, [talking about it]. So I wrote it [about that experience], and we’ll do that song someday."...

    ...""Now, that’s going to be an Eddie-influenced song, to the point that I’m going to co-write it with him. I’m going to give him credit and then maybe we’ll donate the money to charity, whatever," Hagar says. "You see, I feel so embarrassed about it because everyone’s going to say, 'Oh, look at Sammy trying to capitalize on Eddie.' No, I’m not. You don’t understand. This was a real fuckin’ dream, and I told you exactly what happened in it..."
    When Hagar says he isn't trying to capitalize on Eddie, rest assured that means he's trying to capitalize on Eddie.

    C'mon Sammy, dry your eyes...save all the tears you cried...tell us all what your Dreams...are made of.
