Talking to Radio Metal, the frontman says his current band are better than his previous one.

“As individuals,absolutely! I’ve been in both bands, I can tell you right now. Take the new albums and compare them track by track and then tell me.

“If you take Joe Satriani versus Eddie, you take Dave Lee Roth versus me, Wolfie Van Halen versus Mikey Anthony, Chad Smith or Kenny Aronoff versus Al Van Halen…I mean, come on! You know what I mean? Man for man, who can sing the best? Dave or I, today? Who can play the best? Joe or Eddie, today? Who could play or sing the best? Wolfie or Mikey? I think it’s a joke. Sure, I love the comparison as long as it’s fair. Not because you’re a big Eddie Van Halen fan, you think that he’s God, therefore you think that he’s better than Joe; you have to be bipartisan and just listen and watch both of them play. Listen, I played with them both, I can tell you right now: there is no comparison today. Never mind the innovator that Eddie was. I’m talking about what they can play today.”

But Hagar would be happy for Chickenfoot to open for Van Halen.

“Are you kidding? Right now, for free. They wouldn’t even have to pay me.”

It suprises me that It has taken him this long to comment.

Sounds like trash talk at a wrestling match.

Objectively, I see what he’s trying to say. I agree with SOME of it. I can’t say I disagree about the rehash material either…I was kind of bummed. However, I like what Ed did with Ripley though, and I like what he did with the musical upgrade for Tattoo. Who knows. I think this is just the start though…lol…

And I will say that I think I will like ADKOT better than either Chickenfoot disc…I just like Ed better than Satch…though I can say Satch is technically a better player.

The interview appears to have been done on Jan 15th or 16th, and took two weeks to be published.

you know I have loved the Sammy era for all these years and I still do. I also have felt bad for Sam after the 04 fiasco for all these years too. But at this point…. why is he still talking about all this. Let it freakin go Sam. Move on and dont worry about VH. Shut the F up dude. You got chickenshit and they got VH. Be happy for them and stop freakin comparing them all the time. Move the freak on dude.

gosh…….

This is nothing new. The press are always going to ask Sammy & Mike about VH. So the press is just as “guilty” as Sam & Mike are. Sammy & Mike know this as well as the press does – talking about VH is good publicity for everybody. Look at this thread – one of the most popular today! See, it works. And really, is any former member of VH that’s in Chickenfoot going to say they’re not as good as VH? Someone made this analogy before – no man is going to say his ex-wife is better than his current wife.

But just to stir the sh*t – I’ll bet Sam’s afraid that maybe, just maybe, VH’s old recycled stuff is better than Chickenfoot’s new stuff. And Sam as usual has memory issues – VH was recycling stuff when he was in the band.

Funny he doesn’t mention anything about quality of content. If I want to hear sappy songs comparing pussy to food I know fat-clown is the go-to guy. Dave writes circles around that bloated idiot. I’m also beyond sick of the bullshit ‘the round rocker is a better singer’ line. Give me a fucking break. He’s a screamer. It’s annoying. Did I mention his lyrics suck? I’m also sick of the ‘recycled’ garbage.. There are maybe 4 or 5 out of 13 tracks that are from the WB demos? Gee, they’re using old material.. So fucking what?? Don’t we love classic VH??

The irony of sam accusing anyone of being uninspiring or not creative is not lost on me.


Resident dickhead. I will hurt your delicate feelings.

There’s a thing called ‘taking the higher road’. Mike displayed it earlier by saying he’s looking forward to hearing what they did with the old tunes. Good on him. Fat-fuck should follow Mike’s lead on this.

I like the thing Sammy did with Chickenfoot. Hell they filled a great part of the 14 year gap created by Van Halen.

But let’s all shut up by comparing the two bands. There is no comparison besides the fact that some members of Chickenfoot USED to play in Van Halen.

The only thing I want to compare is the Van Halens new album versus the old stuff.
Is the new stuff as good as the music I fell in love with 30 years ago.

To Sammy, Eddy and all the others, I say:
If you want to say something, say it through your music.
Leave us all speechless by making the best music u can.
