    Shit. What next Sam? You get beamed up into a UFO and Ed is flying it? Dude. Let Eddie Rest In Peace. Leave it alone. Stop trying to sell people you got some special Eddie connection and it comes through you.

    The last time I ever heard Eddie say anything about Hagar was he called him the little red worm. Ha! Ha!

    Yeah sure. Alex devastated by the loss of his brother called up Sam and Mike and said let’s do a tribute show for Ed. Heck when Sam heard Ed had passed probably saw it as another self-promotion opportunity. He started calling people up, organizing hoping to draw Alex into it. That’s probably close to what the reality is. Now the twisted dude says he’s seeing Ed in visions and is being helped in his song writing from the other side.

    What a goofball. Don’t stop Sam. Go all the way and form a religion where you channel the great EVH and he plays through you. You better brush up on that guitar playing. I’m expecting to hear Mean Streets and Eruption come off perfectly through your inspired hands. I’m expecting to hear you talking in tongues and hearing Ed’s voice perfectly.

    So he'd been thinking about how he could make himself conspicuous for all that time... He came up with the laaaast fairy tale you could imagine.
    Well, he could imagine. He's the ultimate ass-clown, really.

    What’s funny is nobody can keep their story straight now. Whatever. Sauce and Sam will continue marching in the gay parade they created.

    When I first saw this a few days ago, I thought it was a parody article by The Onion. Hell, I'm a bit surprised he didn't say he had the dream the day Ed died or something along those lines. May as well go all the way if you're going to lie.

    I've let it go around in my head for a few days and I get more pissed the more I think about it. Just when you think he couldn't possibly stoop any lower, the bottom falls out. It was bad enough that he was babbling about Eddie or Van Halen every chance he got to give himself press or whatever (before and especially after EVH died). This is just completely icky. Shameless scumbag.

    My wife has never quite understood why I despise the guy..., I showed this to her the other day and I think she kinda gets it now. Disliking his/Van Hagar's music wasn't and isn't really the main issue. It was bullshit like this, although, this is several steps beyond the past stuff.

    I'm sure the remaining Van Halens are "thrilled" that EVH will receive a songwriting credit for this farce. Maybe that gesture, if it actually happens, will be turned down (if that is possible?). Is this just some weird, misguided attempt to try to get in the good graces of Alex and/or WVH? I guess EVH gets the blame too if the music/riff for this thing sucks? Even if the fantasy "lick" was from EVH and originally cool, you know these guys ruined it by playing it wrong or with a garbage song. Ridiculous.

    It is kind of funny that he was supposedly dreaming about a riff from the disaster 2004 tour. Hardly a highwater mark for Eddie and a time I very much doubt Sam would be kinda sorta dreaming about, at least based on the except I've seen from his book about that era.

    Even if Eddie actually did visit Spam in his dreams and bless him with a super secret heavenly guitar riff, odds are that Hagar wouldn't be able to play it.

    How do I know this? Because the last time he tried to play one of Ed's solos, he botched it so badly that you could see Eddie visibly laughing at him...

    Exactly. Better start doing them finger exercises Sam. Even if Ed’s spirit possessed Sam his fat fingers couldn’t physically do it. Using Sam to play Van Halen would be like using an old rusty Reliant K car to race the Daytona 500 in.

    Anyways this fool ain’t done. Enjoy the implosion.

    Will not watch.

    I remember the first time they began airing the "videos" from Live Without Dave.

    And this shit song comes on and I was like "jesus christ...wtf happened to this band". It was a complete reversal; like a bizarre fucked up version of Van Halen fronted by that poodle haired idiot.

    Everything - from the band's sound, their stage look, the stage itself.....a whole different vibe.

    It's just this desperate grasping at straws he has been doing for so long.

    It's like, we get it. Your last experience playing with the Van Halens was a shitty one. The bulk of the blame for that probably was due to Ed's wacko behavior. Understandable that you'd want another shot at a tour with the band, because that whole 2004 experience - from the 3 BOBW tracks to the tour itself - was, despite the money the band made, right down there with Van Halen III in terms of being the band's nadir.

    It had to be a shot to your ego to see the band reform with Roth in 2006 and see Ed slowly pull himself together health-wise and see Roth front the band for those three tours and that ADKOT album. Regardless of you publicly slagging what Roth brought to those three reunion tours in terms of where Dave's abilities were at that point, it had to hurt seeing Van Halen Mach IV selling out 15,000 seaters while the Circle or Chickenfoot or whatthefuckever was playing venues less than half that capacity. It hurt mostly because you felt you should have been fronting the band for those three tours, because you thought Roth was washed up and a joke.

    And you never got a good final tour with Van Halen. You never even got to stand onstage with them at the RnRHoF because nobody other than you and Mike showed up, and you two guys just looked foolish for doing so. And none of the Van Halens nor Roth so much as spoke about you publicly during those last three tours other than maybe a few passing comments Dave made on a podcast or something. You had to resort to publicly tweeting birthday greetings at Ed, who apparently didn't care to make much of an effort to reach out to you. Maybe your behind-the-scenes expose of the 2004 experiences you had with Van Halen via your book had something to do with the Van Halens not wanting to bother with you...maybe those stories would have best been left unspoken, regardless of how true they were or not.

    Whatever. Ed's gone. There isn't gonna be a reconciliation now that results in new music. Or another Van Halen tour. Just get on with your music and get on with your life.

    Sammy is is the poster child for the harder I work the luckier I get. The happy go lucky beach bum image is just that, an image. This guy is calculating and motivated. Eddie called him all about the money. Sam’s first wife said the same thing about him. He’s got a huge ego and is always hungry.

    I mean he stumbled onto something in Mexico and had the motivation to start importing his house tequila into the US. A lot of his business success is luck but you don’t get lucky unless you are motivated to make certain things happen. Sam got the deal of a lifetime. He built a brand and cashed out.

    It put him in a different bracket than being just a musician. Sam is actually more successful in business than music but Being tied in with the legendary Van Halen makes him think he’s the legend. He’s not. The original band were the legend. Roth knows people know and frankly has nothing to prove. Sam still is going look at me! Look at me!

    I don’t think he can stand being on the way down. He’s a casino grade act and it’s driving him nuts. I’m like enjoy your money loser but toys get boring. The dude wants what he had with VH and you can’t buy it.

    Hmm kind of but the brand would not have been anything without sticking it on the shoulders of the 'Van Halen' brand. It's a happy coincidence that enough of the 10 million Van Halen fans that Dave and Ed's music gathered were by that point people who still liked to party a bit at the weekends and now their 30s with enough cash to spend on overpriced tequila.

    This is the great comfort to me, the guy is not happy or satisfied.

    No one that is would ever spend so much time saying they were.

    The saddest example of his insecurities I always thought was his intro video on the Sam and Dave tour. Somewhere in the contracts I think Dave inserted that each act would have a 15 minute intro video because he wanted to use some of the BBQ video. The video that Hagar put up was the most insipid piece of shit - a series of people, many of whom seemed to be employees like his fucking gardener saying what an amazing person he was. It was beyond pathetic.

    I mean he stumbled onto something in Mexico and had the motivation to start importing his house tequila into the US. A lot of his business success is luck but you don’t get lucky unless you are motivated to make certain things happen. Sam got the deal of a lifetime. He built a brand and cashed out.

    It put him in a different bracket than being just a musician. Sam is actually more successful in business than music but Being tied in with the legendary Van Halen makes him think he’s the legend. He’s not. The original band were the legend. Roth knows people know and frankly has nothing to prove. Sam still is going look at me! Look at me!

    I don’t think he can stand being on the way down. He’s a casino grade act and it’s driving him nuts. I’m like enjoy your money loser but toys get boring. The dude wants what he had with VH and you can’t buy it.
    It has to be, as you say, his pride.

    Otherwise, he'd be content with the success he had. The dude was financially successful.

    But all his branding can't buy him the cred VH with Roth had, and deep down Hagar knows it.

    For all the dough he earned, Hagar is acting pitiful.

    It's stolen. Like everything uncreative and boring Sam cunt has ever done, it's just a rip-off of a previous act. In this case Sam is mimicking the Jimmy Buffett Baby Boomer/Gen X asshole terminally on vacation theme...

    If any of that were true, he wouldn't have rejoined in 2004 when Ed was visibly in such dreadful shape.

    He wouldn't have bitched about the band touring with Dave from 2006 onward in terms of criticizing Roth's performance: much like Hagar didn't need to write a book telling everyone about the bad condition Ed was in on the 2004 tour - because it was clearly evident - Roth's live shortcomings were front and center. Throughout that whole Mach IV period, there's Hagar in the background saying publicly he hasn't permanently closed the door on another Sam Halen reunion.

    It's that old axiom of when someone says such and such a thing isn't about something, you can bet the farm it 100% IS about that certain something.

    Whatever. Fuck him. Let him 'compose' tunes with The Dream Ghost Of Eddie Van Halen. Maybe Jason Bonham can spiritually channel some drum beats his father bequeathed him in a fucking seance and add those to Ether Van Halen's fanatasy 'licks'.

    Oh Cabo Wabo was a VH joint venture in the beginning and there was the grand opening on MTV and a song about the place. But the tequila thing was more than that. Most tequila outside of Mexico is cut. It’s got white rum mixed in with it. The good stuff in Mexico is 100% blue agave. I used to drink it down in Jalisco where they make the stuff.

    Sammy made a connection to get some high grade tequila for the club. People loved it. He had hand blown bottles made, got licensed to import the stuff to the states, got liquor distribution and made mint. He was early to that game. Others followed.

    I used to drink a particular brand of mezcal in Mexico. It was about $1,000 pesos a bottle. That was a little under a US dollar in the day. It was local hooch. Now someone imported it and it’s going for $80 a bottle.

    Yup. I didn’t see Sam looking like he was going to go clam digging in the 80’s or 70’s. He became Margarittaville Sam when the Cabo thing happened. Now he wears ridiculous dated beach wear and yup does the Jimmy Buffett thing.

    There’s not even a corpse. Apparently Eddie was cremated and dumped into the Pacific Ocean. The family didn’t want to deal with the circus shrine a grave would cause. Anyways Eddie is as gone as you possibly can be so Sam has to cook up stories of Ed visiting him in his dreams. That won’t stop. He will claim another song was inspired by Ed from the other side. It’s quite pathetic.

    There might have been an interesting experience with some outer space civilization, but Spammy spoilt it all as they picked him up, the dumbest earthling they could, so they thought it really wasn't worth getting their study any further.

    For the same reason the aliens always seem to target the dumbest people they can find to abduct, anally probe then return back to Earth: why is it never anybody with a scholarly degree?

    Sammy liked the anal probing too much so they dumped him off. They were hoping to have some fun terrifying an earthling but Sam loved all the nasty shit they did to him and begged for more. When Sam was getting green showers instead of golden showers he couldn’t get enough.

    Getting a bit off topic here but imagine you say to the fictional Mulder and Sculley or all their followers back in the day 'ok by 2022 we will give 5.3 billion people on earth a really high quality camera that also does video that they will carry about everywhere with them do you think any of them will get some decent footage?'

    Did you quit or were you fired?

    Oh, I was fired. I was told that I quit by Eddie. It was Father’s Day, Sunday morning, 9 am. The phone rings and I’m laying there with my brand new baby. He goes, “You know, you always just wanted to be a solo artist, so go ahead and be one. We’re going to get Dave back in the band.” And when he said that, I flew up out of bed like I’d seen a ghost. And I said, “Wow” and a few expletives went back and forth from me. That is not what the song “Eagles Fly” is about, but it’s the opening lines of it. [Sunday morning, nine A.M./I saw fire in the sky/I felt my heart pound in my chest/I heard an eagle cry.]
    So the opening lines of a song written years PRIOR to his firing from Van Halen are referring to his being fired from Van Halen.

    Must have been another dream, just ten years earlier.

    The biggest mistake Ed ever made was bring this asshat into the band. Actually I blame both Ed and Dave for that happening.

    Ha! In the first paragraph it says: "A few days later, we heard from Hagar's camp that he wanted to get back on the phone: He had a lot more to say about his former band."

    It's comical how Sam has always brought up VH without being asked to. He got Ed, Al and Mike to join him all throughout 1986 bashing Dave, even when his name wasn't even mentioned. And of course, he can't keep his story straight. First, he had a phone call with Ed. Then he's coming to him in his dreams (creepy, morbid, and self-obsessed as hell), then he said he hadn't heard from Al in a long time, now he's saying he was contacted about a Vegas residency. He is one miserable, cold-hearted prick. And what makes it worse is that he's pretending to be some cool, humble, laid back beach bum and many people buy it! It's disgusting.

    What the fuck?! Just reading through the whole thing. Spam says they would Facetime and told Ed "I'm gonna make a pot of spaghetti for you." This guy is freakin unbelievable how he weaves lie after lie. Say what you will about Dave but he's let the music do the talking since 2007, outside of one or two times when he was prompted to discuss Hagar.

    Honestly, who even knows if Spam talked to Ed before he passed. He could easily be making the whole thing up to make himself look better for the press. Has anyone even confirmed that? Don't think so.
