David Lee Roth proclaims he hasn’t said a “single syllable” about Sammy Hagar in ten years. Today, he ended his silence with some syllables that are guaranteed to rattle some ears, particularly Hagar’s.
In a brand new video titled “The Ballad of Popsicle Sam..”, Roth reignited the decades-long poke and jab, back and forth battle of words between the two famous Van Halen front men by bringing up an oft-reported paranormal tale told by Hagar.
“According to Sam, he was abducted by aliens,” Roth said. “I know that when you’re abducted by aliens you get sex probed. I am compelled to solicit this sordid subject in an effort to explain Sam Hagar’s conduct. For the last 10 summers I haven’t said a single syllable about him. Not one. I defy you. And in the face of a constant fart gas aimed in our direction here at the Mojo Dojo Diamond Dave Laboratories. And I think we’ve arrived at both the technical and the medical answer that may explain some of Sammy Hagar’s conduct and his constant spew of diarrhea vitriol in our direction. Sammy Hagar was abducted by aliens and he was sex probed.”
But Roth wasn’t done yet.
“What I do know with absolute accuracy is that if you take a half of a popsicle and you jam it into a cassette tape player, no matter how carefully you extract it, that tape player will never play the same again,” Roth said. “No matter how carefully you try and fix those delicate little parts. And it’ll get worse and it’ll seem like the singer that you used to [be] will stop making sense whatsoever. A lot like Sam.”
Roth goes on to tell some tales of the brothers Van Halen – Edward and Alex throughout the rest of the video, which can be seen below:
