I like Sammy Hagar, always have. I've been a fan since the Montrose days. That being said, his whole attitude about Van Halen recently has just been bitter and petty. When the new album was released, he said something like 'it's just a bunch of old stuff re-released' and they couldn't do anything new or interesting. While the first part of the statement is true, the new material is new and interesting to the fans. The tour has been hugely successful to date, much more so than ANY Chickenfoot tour yet.

Sammy, as a fan, I ask you to put on your big boy pants and accept the fact the VH doesn't need you. EVH & DLR seem genuinely happy touring again and are only taking a break so that the continue for the full 2 years originally planned. You should be happy for them, stop hating.
