Sammy is not happy to see Eddie making music…

Sammy is not happy to see Eddie ready to tour…

Sammy knows that there’s one and only Edward Van Halen.. he can put on the table Satriani, Vai, and whatever the hell… there’s no comparison…

Sammy lets compare record sales for CH3 and ADKOT if CF is the better band..


EDDIE’S fingers aren’t fingers they are muscle-powered pistons that hammer guitar strings to the fretboard with the force of a rivet gun”.

Satriani has two songs I can name that got play on Mtv one in the 80s one in the 90s.He may be a great guitar player and great teacher but he does not have the songs or influence Eddie had.Trust me if Van Halen wanted Sammy and Mike back they would drop Chickenfoot and never look back.Both him and his student Vai owe a great deal to EVH and they both now that and don’t think have ever denied it.

Eddie was a household name for years in my generation because of his guitar playing and also who he was married to.Satriani was not.

But what is Sammy suppose to say the “new” Van Halen sounds and looks great and is gonnna sell tons of albums and headline arenas while my band does ok and headlines theatres.

I think it would be nice if Sammy said something like that. It would be a hell of a lot more classy than his current approach.

For those that think it was bad for VH to re-do the old demos, I would beg to differ. I think it was a brilliant way to make a connection to the origins of the band, while moving ahead with what is essentially, a new band. By doing so, they satisfy the old-school fans who would want something that reminds them of the original VH, while forging ahead and making something new. At the same time, there are enough new riffs and sounds to satisfy those who want something new and creative. If they had gone either way exclusively, they’d have taken all kinds of shit from fans. This way, they try to reach everyone with this album, and make a case for possibly more new music in the future. My .02.

I agree 100%.

VH III is better than Chickenfoot. III :-P


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

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

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.

CF filled the 14 year VH gap???? I’ll have 2 of whatever you’re having, please.

Also, did I miss something? The only one constantly running his fat pie hole is sam. Mark my words – VH will not say a goddamn thing about that joke of a ‘supergroup’.


Resident dickhead. I will hurt your delicate feelings.

Sam’s just pushing buttons is all. Ed and Dave have done their share of mudslinging at Sam and Mike too. I don’t take anything any of these guys say on either side very seriously anymore. Sam is clearly still bitter about 2004 though

When? I haven’t heard a word out of Ed or Dave about Sam in the last 6 years. As for Sammy, he’s almost obsessed about talking about VH. He wrote a goddamn book chrissakes. Enough of the Sammy apologists. He needs to shut up already. And those who say it’s gone both ways are ignoring that it hasn’t been a two way street for a while. Furthermore, they haven’t said boo about Mike either. And he’s even gotten in some shots, although he’s come to his senses recently. All the comparisons and put downs are coming from the members of Chickenshit. Now they can eat shit!
