I’m glad to hear Sam say he’s sorry. I’m not saying that because I hope it leads to a reunion or anything like that. Just for his own sake. It’s good to clear things like that up and get them out of your conscience. No doubt, getting old will make you think about that sort of thing and Sam turns 69 in a couple of months.

Sammy Hagar Apologizes to Van Halen: ‘I Never Want to Take an Enemy to My Grave’

As the one-time frontman of Van Halen and full-time badass known the world over as the Red Rocker, it’s hard to think of Sammy Hagar slowing down. But at 68 years old, the music icon is beginning to look at life a little differently.

“It’s really odd for me to think about my age,” he admits in an exclusive clip from this Saturday’s episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?

He says that the loss of David Bowie to cancer earlier this year was a major wakeup call. “I had no idea he was sick, he was a private guy [and] one of my all time heroes. And then Glenn Frey. The guys that are dying at my age now all around me, it blows my mind.”

With the additional deaths of Prince, George Martin and Merle Haggard, the musical community has faced a rough year. But the tragedies have helped Hagar maintain a sense of gratitude. “It makes me think about how lucky I am and it makes me want to not have any more enemies … I want to never take an enemy to my grave.”

The statement brings to mind Hagar’s highly publicized disputes with his former bandmates in Van Halen, which he joined in 1986 following the departure of David Lee Roth. A decade later he left the group under highly acrimonious circumstances, and has lashed out at his ex musical colleagues a number of times in the press.

But these days, he’s ready to “forgive and forget” the past drama. “The whole ‘Van Halen issue,’ I’ve really put that behind me,” he says in a second clip of the upcoming episode. “I’m not asking to get back in a band and do all that again — that’s work! I don’t want to do that. I just want to be friends. I just want to say sorry for anything bad I said about you.”

Oprah: Where Are They Now? featuring Sammy Hagar airs Saturday, Aug. 20 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

Amazing that a 68 year old man can still take no responsibility for his actions. But the end justifies the means for Sammy. He’s rich, so that must mean he made the right decisions on his “path”. One second he says he doesn’t want any enemies; the next, he says he hated the Van Halens and getting thrown out of the band was the “greatest thing that ever happened”. I guess you never have to have any regrets as long as daddy’s voice reverberates in your head and calls you “champ” all the time. Clearly, the man has been living in his own world his whole life. Some might attribute his success to that. Ok. But those same people need to consider that this might also be his greatest flaw. Is there anyone out there that wants to live with someone who is never able to admit that they’re wrong? About anything? 20 + years later, he can’t bring himself to say that his “choices” while he was in Van Halen were part of the problem. He is the very embodiment of a narcissist. If we learned anything from VH Rising, we learned that Dave was the complete opposite. He was constantly told that he wasn’t good enough by everyone – the band, his parents, etc. He was an underdog. Certainly, he overcompensated and became unbearable for many, constantly trying to prove himself. But this hero worship of Sammy as the good guy in this whole thing needs to seriously be re-evaluated…..

Should Van Halen Reunite with Sammy Hagar? Our Writers Answer Five Big Questions
By Ultimate Classic Rock Staff

Sammy Hagar’s heartfelt overture to his former bandmates in Van Halen last week fed into a whirring reunion rumor mill. This follows an exchange of friendly tweets in January, the first signs that his relationship with Eddie Van Halen might be on the mend. That all of this is happening during an extended period of inactivity for Van Halen and the band’s original frontman David Lee Roth also played into the theory that a homecoming might be in the offing for Hagar, whose principal tenure lasted from 1985-96. But should they actually get back together? And how would it work, considering that Michael Anthony — who followed Hagar into Chickenfoot — has since been replaced in Van Halen by Eddie’s son, Wolf? Our writers joined with Greg Renoff, author o​f Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal, to sort it out in an unfiltered roundtable discussion …

1) Do you think Sammy Hagar will ever reunite with Van Halen again?
2) Which new Van Halen album and tour would be better — one with Hagar or one with David Lee Roth? And which would sell more?
3) Regardless of who you picked as a singer, who should play bass — Wolfgang or Michael Anthony?
4) Do you think we’ll ever get a combined Sam and Dave tour?
5) Which outside artist would you most like to see Eddie Van Halen collaborate with?
