SAMMY HAGAR REVEALS THAT HE AND EDDIE VAN HALEN MENDED THEIR FENCES BEFORE THE GUITARIST’S PASSING
Former Van Halen frontman, Sammy Hagar and Eddie Van Halen reconciled before the legendary guitarist’s death, Hagar revealed to Howard Stern on the latter’s Wednesday (October 7th) show…
…“Eddie and I had been texting, and it’s been a love fest since we started communicating earlier this year,” Hagar, 72, revealed to The Howard Stern Show, according to Metal Injection. “We both agreed not to tell anyone, because of all the rumors it would stir up about a reunion, et cetera, and we both knew that wasn’t gonna happen. But he also didn’t want anyone to know about his health.”
“He stopped responding to me a month ago, and I figured it wasn’t good,” Hagar continued to Stern. “I reached out one more time last week, and when he didn’t respond, I figured it was a matter of time. But it came way too soon.”
Van Halen passed away on October 6th at 65 after a long battle with cancer.
Glad these two were able to put the past behind and rekindle some sort of friendship.
Me too, Wiggy, I wish they all would do that, especially KISS.
