Van Halen Reunion With Sammy Hagar Not Going To Happen!
By Dallen Harris – February 11, 2016

Sorry folks all the rumors you are hearing about the possibility of Sammy returning to the band for a reunion tour is not going to happen any time soon according to sources close to the band.

The rumors started flying around after Sammy Tweeted Eddie a birthday wish seen here: http://twitter.com/sammyhagar/status/692049314726588416

Then like wildfire the rumors of a reunion involving Sammy Hagar spread across the web. To make it worse there was a recent interview on the Daily Bulletin talking about it from Sammy’s point of view as you can see here:
Source: Daily Bulletin
One subject Hagar is not comfortable talking about is Van Halen. When asked what he would do if the group called him to come back, he said he wasn’t sure.

Hagar: “My favorite thing to say without biting my own tongue is no comment,” Hagar said. “Every time I turned around, it was a no-win situation. If I say what I feel … I would always get 50 percent of the Van Halen fans saying, ‘Right on, you rule.’ Then the haters would dog me like, ‘You’re always dogging Van Halen.’ I’m going to shut up. They get their wish. We’ll see what happens when it happens — if it happens.”

Here is the deal though, it will not happen and is “not even a thought” according to promoters of Van Halen “There is no way in hell man, you think we want to go through that again, he has constantly burned the band and talked so much s$%t, thanks but no thanks. He can do his thing within his little circle (meaning Hagars new band ‘The Circle’).” They go on to tell us: “Look we understand that Hagar’s voice is stronger than David’s now but David is happy to be a part of something great and not crying over percentages or causing problems.”

So there ya go folks a Hagar reunion is not looking like it will ever happen, so don’t believe the hype on social media.

Those quotes in bold sound believable but not real. I think any one of us could have made those up if we were trying to write up some VH propaganda.

I don’t think a Hagar reunion is in the works, but I also don’t think that “response” is legit either.

But what do I know!? :mrgreen:

Nah! I just have a thing about speaking my mind! On the one hand…you have a legendary band…with the greatest front man in history (Sorry Mr Plant)! On the other…one day Ed was getting his Ferrari worked on…and found this homeless slob eating food truck garbage out of a dumpster! He felt bad for him…then realized it was Sammy. By then the damage was done! There is only ONE Van Halen…others need not apply!

I am not a big fan of the Sammy era either – but there are a lot of people who are. Some guys like girls with a little meat on their bones and some guys don’t (my dad always said he the only thing better than a girl with a little meat on her bones … was a girl with a little meat on her bones on his bone – but I digress). There have been former site members who specifically said they stopped coming to the site because of the anti-Sammy sentiments expressed here at times. So think whatever you want about Sammy, Dave (or Gary), but please be mindful that your post I quoted above is very offensive to some of the other people on the site.

If people are not Sammy fans etc that is up to them. However, considering the sizable fan base for Sammy-era VH, a reunion with Sammy and Mike would most likely pull in higher numbers (attendance and ticket prices) than another tour with Dave and Wolfgang.

PT5150: After 3 tours with Dave some of that set list is getting boring.

Give the Hagar era one more tour with some new songs… Finish that chapter the right way with those songs played correctly…

I will never get tired of the Dave era songs… although I am worn out on the condition of Dave’s voice, and some of his banter.


The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

Sammy a homeless slob eating out of a dumpster? He will be the last member of V/H to eat from a dumpster. I’m sure he has more money than anyone in the group.
Maybe more than all the rest combined. As for the fat jokes, show some class. Never wanted to go here but tired of the fat comments. There is a current member of the group that has what looks like a bigger problem with weight than Sammy does and is like one third of Sammys age. You don’t like the guy fine but the constant fat comments make you look like a jerk.

Not concerned about what some thirty-somethings think! VAN HALEN is not VAN HALEN without Dave! Sammy sucked as a solo artist with shit not even worthy of Ted Nugent! He made VH a slightly more powerful version of Journey! Don’t get me wrong! I hated VH III just as much! By the way, I always thought Sammy’s other band should be called CHICKENSHIT! I share common ground on this! I am not going to comment any further on this…and I’m not going to be a pussy and disappear because of an ever-so-slight re-emergence of SH talks! Ed won’t have him…and that’s that! If it should come to fruition, I will wait it out in the shadows! That’ll give me a chance to catch up on ALL of the covers I still need to do…for Dave-era shows…any other versions need not apply! For the record…I had no idea that Vain delved into my territory! COOL! I’ll have to go view some of his offerings! Ciao!
