SAMMY HAGAR: VAN HALEN Has Fallen Completely Apart

May 21, 2002

Former VAN HALEN frontman Sammy Hagar told the syndicated radio show Rockline this week that the Van Halen brothers Eddie and Alex were initially approached last year to stage a tour with both former frontmen, but they rejected the idea.

"I think if they could do anything right now they would have done it," Hagar said. "No one has heard anything, they don't have a record deal, they've just fallen completely apart. Why, I don't know. I think it's the worst thing that could have ever happened to one of the greatest rock bands in the world."

In other news, Eddie Van Halen made a rare public appearance this weekend at the annual LAPD Celebrity Golf Charity. When asked by a fan at the event if there were any chance of joining Hagar and/or fellow ex-VAN HALEN singer Dave Lee Roth on stage during the pair's upcoming appearance at the Universal Amphitheatre, he reportedly replied, "Are you kidding me, after both of those guys left the band?!"
