Corey Irwin of Loudwire reports:

David Lee Roth thinks he knows why Sammy Hagar keeps talking about him.

In a video posted to YouTube (which can be seen below) titled The Ballad of Popsicle SamVan Halen’s original frontman concluded that the Red Rocker must have been “sex probed” by aliens.

“According to Sam, he was abducted by aliens,” Roth explained, referring to Hagar’s belief that he had an alien encounter as a teenager.

“I know that when you’re abducted by aliens you get sex probed,” Roth insisted. “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.”

Roth went on to ponder how an alien might examine a human, ultimately admitting he had “no idea” of the means or apparatus that would be used.

“But 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 concluded. “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’s wild alien theory is just the latest chapter in the ongoing war of words between the former Van Halen singers. In November, following the announcement of his Van Halen-focused tour, Hagar haphazardly invited Roth to join. “If David Lee Roth wants to come out and join us, come on, motherfucker. You are welcome,” the Red Rocker declared. Days later, Roth issued a response: “I’m ready to go. Let’s do this.”

Despite what seemed like a possible agreement, Hagar soon clarified that his invitation was for Roth to “sing a song on a show or two… if he can remember the words.” He added there was “no f–king way” he’d agree to a full tour with Roth.

Sammy Hagar recently announced, The Best Of All Worlds Tour, with bandmates, Michael Anthony (Van Halen Chickenfoot, The Circle) Jason Bonham (The Circle) And Joe Satriani (Chickenfoot), list of tour dates are available, here.

  1. This is so sad…I love me some Sammy Hagar but he does talk a lot about Van Halen and Dave…but Dave’s response is so odd…all this bickering is taking away from the history of Van Halen. Just like all the fighting from Kiss members, Motley Crue, Aerosmith, LA Guns, Queensryche, Ratt, Skid Row…it is just so sad.

    I’m tired of hearing Ace, Sammy, and everyone else about the past. Love all these guys but my god it so petty. Move on and let the music speak for itself. All this in-fighting is destroying the legacy of these bands.

    1. I agree 100% Michael! Think about it for a moment. Most, if not all of the bands you mentioned are fairly wealthy and set financially except for maybe Ace since he owes the ITS some big money. But a lot of these guys are worse than 5th graders bickering over something petty at recess. It does take away from the legacy of these bands. The music will always be great, that will never change thankfully. But I dont get the airing of dirty laundry in public. Grow up already ya know?

  2. All I know is Roth can walk out onto a stage, do nothing, say nothing, sing nothing, and the crowd goes crazy. You absolutely cannot buy that kind of cool. Hagar has talents, oh yes, but ZERO swagger, even less attitude. And I think he hates that.

  3. Steve Hackett band is touring, doing GENESIS music today BETTER than the original line-up ever did. He is a better guitarist than most people you think are great. Do yourself a favor: check him out of YouTube and see for yourself. And go see this band perform.
