In a new interview with Maxim, Sammy Hagar says he wants to get Van Halen back together–with both him AND David Lee Roth on the same stage.
Here’s the Van Halen content for the interview:
There’s been talk of a Van Halen reunion tour with both you and David Lee Roth. Have you been approached and would you do it?
First of all, I have not been approached. Secondly, it was my idea to have Dave and I go out on tour, so if everyone was happy and behind the idea 100% — no egos, no grudges — then of course I would be into it… but only with Michael Anthony on bass. That’s what the fans want, and I know we could give them one of the greatest rock set lists of all time. We’re in a fortunate place with the band because all of the original guys are still here. We could reunite — singing and playing the way it should be. It couldn’t get any better than that. But we’ll see.
What would you serve Eddie Van Halen if he were to come over to your cookout?
Grilled meats over wood charcoal, which, by the way, goes fantastically with Santo Mezquila — either straight or in a margarita. Something about the sweet smokiness of Santo and the smokiness of the meat, boom!
