Sammy Hagar Gives Up "Hope" Of A Van Halen Reunion


November 2, 2017

It shouldn't come as much of a surprise, but the oft-mentioned, heavily speculated reunion of VAN HALEN with both DAVID LEE ROTH and SAMMY HAGAR will never happen.

That is SAMMY HAGAR's latest take on a topic of conversation that he's had in recent years concerning a possible “Sam & Dave Tour” with Van Halen that would have had both of the iconic band’s singers sharing the stage. On the occasion of his 70th birthday, Mr. Hagar bemoaned the fact that there has been no communication between him and brothers Alex & Eddie Van Halen and that he is now “over” the idea of such an undertaking.

Speaking on the Eddie Trunk Show, Sammy pointed out 2 particular instances recently that led him to this point—the tragic death earlier this year of (former VH and current Sammy bandmate) MICHAEL ANTHONY's grandson and the Red Rocker's milestone 70th birthday, for which both Eddie and Alex remained silent.
