A reunion between Sammy Hagar and his former VAN HALEN bandmates is "inevitable," the singer told MTV backstage at last week's MTV Video Music Awards, shortly after presenting an award with David Lee Roth. "I mean come on, how could it not [happen]?"
While Hagar confessed that he hasn't spoken with either of the Van Halen brothers (Eddie and Alex) in quite some time, he has spent a lot of on- and off-stage time with bassist Michael Anthony, who has been regularly flying in to join Hagar during his live performances.
"Mikey hasn't even heard from Eddie or Alex," Hagar explained. "I just think when they're ready to surface, they'll do it.
"It's not that I'm crying for [a reunion]," clarified Sammy. "I'm happy. I'm totally happy. [But] I don't think I could say I am never going to play with those guys again and it will never happen. And God forbid something happened to one of us and then it could never happen. I'd be very regretful.
"So I think it's inevitable," he reiterated. "So I think we'll do it. And hopefully we'll do it like right here in the VMAs sometime or something."
