Sammy Hagar says he has no problem with David Lee Roth
“Him and I don’t even have a feud. To be honest with you, I have no problem with Dave. I don’t know what he’s got going with me, but I think he always feels competitive. So I think he feels like he has to raise his flag, like, ‘I’m Van Halen’ ‘Cause I had a solo career before Van Halen. I was in Montrose before Van Halen. I’ve had Chickenfoot. Dave has got Van Halen, so I think he has to hold on to that kind of tight. But I don’t care about that. If someone said, ‘Oh, I never knew you [were] in Van Halen,’ I’d say, ‘Eh…'”
David Lee Roth’s retirement
Van Halen singer David Lee Roth revealed in an interview with the Las Vegas Review Journal that the next 5 shows he will do in the city will be the last ones of his career. Roth told journalist John Katsilometes: “I am throwing in the shoes. I’m retiring. This is the first, and only, official announcement… You’ve got the news. Share it with the world. I’m not going to explain the statement. The explanation is in a safe. These are my last five shows.”
The shows Roth talked about will take place at the Las Vegas House of Blues next December 31 and January 1, 5, 7, 8.
David Lee Roth finished the interview, saying:
“I’ve given you all I’ve got to give. It’s been an amazing, great run, no regrets, nothing to say about anybody. I’ll miss you all. Stay frosty.”
