2008 – Hagar Slams Van Halen Blabbermouth reports: Ex-Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar recently spoke to Ralph Sutton of the nationally syndicated rock radio show “The Tour Bus” about his former band’s reunion with frontman David Lee Roth and their decision to replace bassist Michael Anthony with guitarist Eddie Van Halen’s 17-year-old son Wolfgang.
“They just keep going, making more and more mistakes,” Hagar said. “The reunion with Dave was the greatest thing they could have done, but why didn’t they just keep Mike one more time?!
“They just can’t do the right thing by the fans. I don’t know why that band… There’s just something quirky to where they… It’s almost like they wanna just push ’em [the fans] as far as they can and see if they’ll still come back.”
