Sammy Hager: “I like Chickenfoot better”

Sammy Hager who fronted Van Halen from 1985 to 1996 and also during a reunion between 2003 and 2005 has stated in an interview with SGVTribune that if the band was like how it used to be, he could do another reunion and album but he does in fact like Chickenfoot better.

Hagar said he’s more into Chickenfoot these days than the old Van Halen songlist. “I like Chickenfoot better. With Van Halen, I tried that reunion … we really couldn’t get along. Everyone should get along great and the fans should come first. Mikey (fellow Chickenfoot bassist and former Van Halen member Michael Anthony) is the same kind of person. You don’t go out there wasted and incapable of doing your job night after night. It’s not the way I do things. I just don’t see it coming together.”

Hagar said of Van Halen: “The band broke up in 1995. The last record was in ’93. Seventeen years and they haven’t made any new music. That’s crazy … if it changed and it was like it used to be when I was in the band, I could do a reunion and an album, but not under these circumstances.”
