He talks about the Van Halen breakup, also chalks up his recent comment that his new group, Chickenfoot, could rival Zep, to too much tequila.

Fun stuff.

Seen Dave after a show in LA on the recent tour, wearing makeup and the bright light gave a good look at some hair plugs. I wished I had looked away after seeing them live in 79 this was a litle sad.

After Seeing Sammy in cabo 2008, Sammy was wearing Pajamas and make up, he looked like Ronald McDonald in his clown suit, After seeing Sammy live in 1978 and 1986 it was really sad

True, Van Halen I and 1984 have sold over 10 million copies each. However the Roth era never produced a single number one hit...the Hagar era earned 3 number ones. Also, there's a common thread in both eras...EDDIE. He's the reason people turn out to see Van Halen. If Sammy and Michael returned today people would turn out in huge numbers. Dave is not that talented, he's an entertainer, not a singer or musician. Sammy is a musician and a singer. There's a reason why Dave could only put out 2 albums after the break up. If he didn't have Steve Vai during that time he would have had nothing, he needs Van Halen but Van Halen doesn't need him.

EDDIE VAN HALEN IS A GREAT PLAYER,NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.BUT MOST OF HIS INTERVIEWS ARE BITCHING ABOUT
PAST MEMBERS, AND ALSO THAT HE HAS 100'S OF NEW TRACKS WRITTEN.WELL WHERE ARE THEY? IF I WAS YOU EDDIE I WOULD TURN THAT BAND IN TO WHAT IT SHOULD BE.NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE. TRY WORKING LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DOES FOR A WHILE IN THE REAL WORLD,THEN YOU WOULD REALISE HOW LUCKY YOU ARE.

First off, I think Dave is better, apparently you don't read to well. I don't have to stalk you. You are all over the place with your stupid comments, and your Sammy bashing.It's more like you're stalking these boards so you can add some immature and retarded comment about hating Sammy. You just change your name and say stupid shit everywhere you can. Go away already. You're not fooling anybody.
Maybe you should start a Anti-Sammy website so you can dedicate your whole life to hating one person and give us all a break from your stupid shit..You're pathetic

Are you really this much of a retard or do you just act this way on topix ? pathetic LOL, you stalk me then claim I'm all over the place, next you claim you are this huge DLR fan, yet your upset that someone points out VH was better with DLR, you're a Sam fan who is bitter, hey if you like Shambo great start a website all about Sam, next quit acting all hurt and upset, are really that immature ? Well look at the bright side you make me laugh !

Sammy is a much better musician. Dave has no talent.

The Roth era was when the new style of metal was just coming out. I still remember that first album.....Way ahead of its time....As for Sammy he is a musician in his own right. A decent singer as well as a guitar player... I would have to say thou that Roth was better suited for Van Halen...Period...But thats just my opinion
