Just read this interview with Sammy Hagar, here is his comment on VH :
Jeb: Sammy, I know your focus is on your solo career and your businesses but I have readers who will kill me if I don't ask this question. Is Van Halen done?
Sammy: I don't know. It is right now. They can do whatever they want. If Ed and Al want to get a new singer and a new bass player then they can do whatever they want. I wouldn't complain and I wouldn't say that they shouldn't have done that. What I would say is that I think it is a big mistake to do that. I would never try to run their lives like they do me. They are free to do whatever they want. The way they want to do business and the way they want to mingle with their co-band members and other people who are involved in their organization, I don't want any part of. I am a very happy guy. I have found a happy life. If their lifestyle could fit in with mine then I would have no problem doing it again. I think it is inevitable.
Honestly, straight up, Eddie has changed a lot. Alex is okay and Mikey and I are best friends. Eddie, for me, is the problem. If you talked to Eddie then I am sure he would tell you that I am the problem. If he doesn't like my lifestyle then I understand that. He wants to be miserable and I want to be happy - it is really that simple. If Eddie wants to be friends again and not do this just for business or for other kinds of reasons - I really don't know why he wants to do it. I don't even know if he even wants to do it. But if he wants to do it and do it for the right reasons and get together on a really good level then I would do it. I thought it was going to be great. I was all for the last reunion and it turned out to be pretty ****ing tough finishing that tour out. I have to tell you that there were times on that tour that after a show it was like, "Get Sammy out that door and get Eddie out the other door." That ain't no way to do things. I am not interested in yelling and screaming at anybody much less having someone yell and scream at me for having fun. It is like, "Hey, get the **** out of my face, dude." There were too many rules - lets put it like that for me. I was told that I can't do this or I can't do that or I can't say this or I can't say that. Yet, Eddie can go say and do the **** that he did? No way. Right now, it is over for me but if they want to do it on real terms and with no rules and no business **** then I am fine.
Here is the whole interview :
Seems like we're back where we started in before VH III, sad.
