"So, essentially, I won't be able to get roadies, or sound guys, or lighting guys, so maybe I'll just stay home, because there is no way in Hell I'm hauling all that sh*t myself. Well, that and not a lot of venues seemed interested in Plague Rats 2020 as a tour."

My personal feeling is that Van Halen sucks regardless of who is fronting them.

They were four distinct bands.

OG Van Lee Roth.  Party band.  Cheesy.  Great tunes,.

Van Hagar.  Songs with better depth.  Less drugged out.  2nd guitar.

Extreme Van Halen.  Extreme

Old Van Lee Roth -  bring nothing new to the table.  Voice shot.  Basically a tribute bad with a bad front man.

Van Hagar played slow dance prom songs.

That alone made them worse than Van Halen.

Van Halen was a bit better than Van Hagar.

But Sammy Hagar without Van Halen is a hell of a lot better than David Lee Roth without Van Halen.

NeoCortex42: But Sammy Hagar without Van Halen is a hell of a lot better than David Lee Roth without Van Halen.


The band he toured with (co-headlining with Hagar) was at the time arguably better than Van Halen if only from a sobriety standpoint.  All of VH were brilliant musicians, but when they were farked up (a lot of the time) they were not great live.

Based on the YouTube videos I've seen, Hagar new band The Circle (with Michael Anthony, Waboritas guitarist Vic Johnson, and drummer Jason Bonham) is a better Van Halen cover band than Van Halen these days,

You know when I wear a mask it makes it hard to breathe,
And I can't get the hang of sneezing in my sleeve.

that's all I got

He made the news recently for spouting off some right-wing nonsense about not wearing a mask or shutting down businesses or something.

I too gave up on it and moved to trying a Sammy Hagar the Horrible joke. Just nothing on that front either. And he has a sidekick named Eddie.

Irving Maimway: Van Hagar still sucked.


Dude has been performing for almost 50 years, yet people still feel the need to bring up his 11 years in VH. First saw him with Montrose 45 years ago at Winterland and have seen him more than a dozen times over the years. Always a great show.

The one thing he did right over the years is he always played with great guitarists. Ronnie Montrose and Eddie Van Halen are both in my top 5 guitarists of all time. The guy singing isn't as important when you have a guy who can shred on guitar.

/seriously tho, Van Hagar was boring. Should have called it quits after 1984, end it on a high note.

Go on and wear a mask while you respirate.
Do just what you're told by the state.
My rights you can't regulate.
I'm gonna make America great!

One hand one the mic and one on the Cabo, hey!
Well there's too much oppression and I can't tour, no!
So I tried my best illegal move
A big social backlash come and crushed my groove again

Go on and write me up for going Trump
Post my face this virus is a crock
Bet my life that it's all jive
I'm almost 75, oh no, uh

My first thought on the original story was, "Imagine lying in a hospital bed, struggling with your final breaths, knowing you were there because you just HAD to see Sammy Hagar live during a plague."

Van Halen....awesome guitar, a little keyboard, songs about pussy and partying

Van Hagar...still pretty good guitar, a lot of keyboard, songs about love and Pepsi

Mugato: Van Halen....awesome guitar, a little keyboard, songs about pussy and partying

Van Hagar...still pretty good guitar, a lot of keyboard, songs about love and Pepsi


I saw them not long after the Pepsi commercial came out and virtually everyone in the audience sang that song word for word. I did not. It was not good. STFU people, I'm trying to hear a concert here.

I was in the 12th row and that was unquestionably one of the loudest concerts I've ever been to. Halfway through, I thought to myself that even a deaf person could enjoy this concert because they could feel the vibrations. I believe they were using their branded 5150 gear by then. Saw mega promoter Bill Graham in the upper seats when I was leaving. He was writing something on a pad of paper, so I yelled 'Give them an A, Bill'. He looked up at me and smiled, then went back to writing. Died in a helicopter crash not long after that.

When it's declining and seems to be going away

That makes him sound dumb. He didn't understand the purpose of flattening the curve and thinks the virus is just 'going away'. How hard is it to say something more like "When it's declared safe by the relevant authorities and we can assure fans it's safe to come to our shows"? You'd have to be a sick fark to invite fans to come to your show even though you think there's a chance that they're going to get infected just so you can sell some tickets and merchandise.

So, he's not as badass as he thought?
For any remaining fans of his, he is the hero they rightly deserve.
