    I mean, the thing about it is, doubtless Hagar tells the story to make sure everybody knows he tried to be the nice guy and include Alex.

    But with my experience, the few truly decent people I've known personally...the common denominator with all of them is that NONE of them EVER made public announcements designed to SHOW everybody how decent they were. Like, if a person is decent, they know it and are comfortable letting others find out on their own...and if others don't acknowledge how decent they are, said person is fine with that, too.

    The other part of it is...I mean, Hagar reached out to Alex "a dozen" times about participating in this tour. To my mind, once or twice would be sufficient. Reaching out any more than that...just seems cringe and desperate.
    Totally desperate. The douchebag is desperate to resurrect any semblance of Van Hagar that he decided to make a tour out of it.

    He should just be happy Al at least greenlights Van Hagar reissues.

      So Alex and Dave come up with this idea to do a tribute tour with Satriani, it doesn't work out and two minutes later Hagar decides to copy the entire idea and then phones up Alex and asks him to play on the tour: "Hey I'm cashing in on your idea, come and play so I can pretend it's a Van Halen show, how about it ?". What a total asshole! I'm sure Alex would like to tell him to take a flying leap.

        This is exactly why Alex is done with Sam. I'm sure he now realizes Sam was just an opportunistic asshole who joined Van Halen not for the sake of the "music" but saw $$$$.

          I haven't seen it since maybe someone can find it and put it up on the site but before each act played on the Dave and Sammy tour in 2002 there was a video played. I suspect this was a Roth stipulation so he could play some of his recently made BBQ video. Can anyone else remember the video that Hagar played? My memory of it was a montage of 10 or more people giving short statements about how he was the best, most amazing, generous guy in the world. If that wasn't cringe enough it did seem that most of them were employees. Maybe a false memory on my part but someone prove me wrong...

            Watch Sam perform. He looks kind of pissed. He wanted to outdo the Another Kind of Truth tour and steal Dave’s legacy. Without Alex it’s just another Chiken Foot tour. Sam knows it. He’s flustered. He wants to be known as the best singer in Van Halen but he can’t get Dave off the top of the mountain.

              Joe is no Eddie. Not even close. If I want to see a tribute I will see Nerd Halen. Joe has no swagger. Joe has no swing. Joe has zero stage presence. Joe can’t improvise. Joe is BORING. You can watch monkey’s masturbate for free on YouTube. Why pay Hagar to see Joe do it?

                “You can’t have Van Halen without Eddie Van Halen”. -Wolfgang-

                Even the fat fucking kid has a higher IQ than Sammy.
