mrmojohalen:
I can’t see Al & Ed working with Sam ever again.

I definitely agree. Sam’s book set that in stone.

From a guy at links..

Sammy started his new record today. A combo of greatest hits and Sam is writing four new songs for each of his four eras. then he is taking the show on the road with Denny Carmasi, Bill Church, Michael Anthony and the Wabo’s along with a superstar guitarist (not Satriani)

to be honest, the combo Sammy /Satch did not produce any considerable musical impact.

Nice music, but nothing particularly relevant….

I expected more from Satch in terms of solos … btw, Chickenfoot 1 was better than 3…

SAMMY HAGAR ‘Rehearsing And Writing Songs’ With WABORITAS – Feb. 2, 2013

Legendary rocker Sammy Hagar (CHICKENFOOT, VAN HALEN, MONTROSE) has revealed to Las Vegas Magazine that he is currently in the studio with his group the WABORITAS “rehearsing and writing songs.” He added: “We’re putting something out this year and we’ll probably go out and do 25-30 shows.”

Hagar revealed in a holiday video message that CHICKENFOOT will take 2013 off to focus on other projects. He said: “Joe’s [Satriani, CHICKENFOOT guitarist] doing his thing and Chad’s [Smith, CHICKENFOOT drummer] just coming off a [RED HOT] CHILI PEPPERS tour and he’s not gonna wanna go into the studio. So I think Mikey [CHICKENFOOT/ex-VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony] and I and the WABOS, we’ll just go out and do some stuff.” That “stuff” will likely include “more shows, maybe a proper tour” and possibly even a new record.”

CHICKENFOOT recently reissued its gold-selling 2009 self-titled debut as a double-disc set. The new version features bonus live tracks recorded on the group’s tour behind its sophomore studio effort, “III”

CHICKENFOOT’s most recent touring lineup included legendary drummer/musician Kenny Aronoff, who was filling in for Smith while Chad was on the road with RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS.

From Jeff Hausman
Van Halen News Desk (VHND.com)
VanHalenStore.com

When I first heard the rumor, I said “WHAT?” Then I reached out to some people. What I heard back right away did not surprise me… that the rumor simply is not true. (As most of you have always thought). I almost posted something here, but you guys seems to be having fun lightheartedly speculating. I thought about trying to dispel the rumor on VHND, but the rumor hasn’t gone viral, so i thought there was no need to.

I feel confident that the lineup of the band will never change again. That being said, when it comes to VH, in my opinion, “never say ‘never’” applies. I don’t think it would be IMPOSSIBLE for any change to happen in the future. But again, I think it’s unlikely. I think that the least likely thing to ever happen would be Sammy Hagar coming back. I can’t see that happening at all, but I still wouldn’t say there is ZERO chance. Just extremely unlikely.

The band just came off and an album and tour that was very well received. And Dave and the three Van Halens get along. There’s no need to change up the band.

The big question to me (and to the other’s I’ve talked to) is not whether or not this Dave/Sammy tour will happen. The question is, WHO told Triple M in Australia that VH was thinking about touring with Dave AND SAMMY?

The interesting thing is that we all agree on who we think started the rumor…

So who started the rumor? Jeff states that we all agree on who it was. But I seem to have been left out of the loop. Mikey has publicly stated he’s going out with Sam this year. Sam has publicly stated that he’s in the studio and also going out this year with the Wabos and Mike. Who else would have started this rumor? Dave?

I wouldn’t doubt Sammy starting the rumor to draw some attention. From the quote from Jeff at VHND, I think that is what he is insinuating.
