For Sammy Hagar.
WHY, oh, WHY does EVERYONE put Sammy Hagar down on YOUTUBE?
He has been called every name in the book and TOTALLY defamed and slandered by the RABID, and REALLY quite IGNORANT horde of Van Halen CLASSIC fans.....
They MUST NOT know that SAMMY was picked purely because he was once in one of the GREATEST Rock Bands of ALL time: MONTROSE.
No one rocked HARDER. I saw HAGAR at the Cow Palace right after his LP "NINE on a TEN SCALE" came out.
One of the GREATEST Rock shows of ALL time. Rick Derringer. Foghat. Sammy Hagar.
Sammy blew them ALL away. In fact, the audience REFUSED to let Sammy go. He came back out and said he would have to do the whole show over again, as he had already played EVERYTHING he knew.
The audience ROARED!
Sammy was hired for Van Halen for ONE reason only, as far as Warner Brothers were concerned.
To sing and write HITS.
That's what he did.
They STILL kicked ASS!
But David Lee Roth is a hard act to follow.
ROTH is a TRUE FRONT MAN.
No one better......
Sammy did quite well. No, it was NOT the original Van Halen.
It wasn't supposed to be!
Listen to Sammy Hagar's early stuff, his SOLO stuff.
"YOUNG GIRL BLUES" rocks as hard as ANYTHING Van Halen ever did!
