Who would've ever thought Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth would go on a concert tour together? After months [years?] of rumours that either of the two former frontmen for Van Halen were reuniting with the group, it appears the band is dead.

While both have significantly faded from the spotlight, I could see this tour being a huge success. But then again, I'm from Slurrey so what do I know?

Running with the devil,

~TB.

Missing One lead singer from the mix

They had one other lead singer for one album. I cant remember his name, just that he sang some acoustic music to slit your wrists to. Why wasnt he invited?? Id go then

I think 4 years ago when he formed the DLR band. Apparently he had been recording the last 2 years with VH but things fell apart [again] around the same time EVH was diagnosed with cancer.

Sammy has come out with 3 albums recently I think. I remember reading something about him putting a band together [for this tour?] and Michael Anthony and Slash were on board.

Ain't talkin' 'bout love,

~TB.

While can't drive 55 is a good tune from Sammy some of his better older stuff I think includes Plain Jane, Heavy Metal, and Fallin' in Love Again.

And don't forget about that killer lead song from the soundtrack of that Stallone arm rastlin' hit whose name escapes me right now :rolleyes:

Dancing the night away,

Just got a call from Lincoln Hawk:

The rumors are true. The wait is over. The planets are aligning, and all is right in the world again.

In 1996, an announcement from the Van Halen camp knocked fans on their collective ass: Sammy Hagar was out of the group. Eight years later, VH fans are about to get knocked on their asses again ... but this time, instead of sucking ass, the news kicks much ass: Sammy, Eddie, Alex and Michael have reunited, and will be headed to a stage near you this summer!

The official website now hosts a brand new snap of Michael, Sammy, Alex, and Edward and confirms 28 dates for the first leg of the tour, exclaiming "EDDIE, ALEX, MIKE & SAMMY HIT THE ROAD!"

And finally, we can put to rest the rumor that the "special guests" listed for the Sammy show at that Taho Wabo on May 2nd are Van Halen. VH will not be playing this show.

When word of the reunion reached Howard Stern, he wasted no time calling Sammy at home to ask him about it. Sammy took the call, despite the fact that it was still obscenely early in California at the time. Howard chided Sammy as he replayed comments he had made about the band after the 1996 split. Hagar laughed to hear the old quotes dredged from the archives and explained that he was being honest about his feelings at the time but that time is long past and he is just excited to be working with the band again.

Sam further recounted that while he has been in contact with Michael in recent years, the first brother he reconnected with was Alex with a call from Eddie following soon thereafter. He says that they have not apologized to each other, they have just picked up from here.

Regarding the new music, Sammy said that the material that Eddie has been working on was the foundation of their new collaborations.

When asked if it is uncomfortable to work with the brothers after all these years of acrimony, he replied that while he was nervous at first, they have worked through a lot of the old stuff in the three months that they have been reunited. Sammy made a point of reiterating that he is not mad at Edward and that Ed is healthy and playing better than ever.

The first single they plan to release is a new tune titled ''It's About Time'', which the VHND expects to be on Van Halen Best Of Volume II, though he did not explicitly say so.





A few more highlights:
  • Sammy said the music Eddie is coming up with is "extremely inspiring".
  • Sammy is really pumped up about how great "It's About Time" is.
  • Sammy thinks the songs they wrote are great & thinks the time is right to do this.
  • Sammy said things feel better now than ever in VH.
  • Sammy's favorite VH song is "Dreams"

So there you have it. New songs for the new tour with the greatest band in the world. Keep it here for more information ... and get ready to party.

IT IS NOW OFFICIALLY 5150 TIME!
:D

I hope the show will be as good as the one in September '95 (or whatever drunken year that was :eek: ). Sammy has a great stage presence :wa:
