Sammy Hagar was a recent guest on Eddie’s Sirius/XM radio show and said he tried contacting Alex Van Halen on his birthday.

He told Eddie [as per], “I reached out to Al on his [65th] birthday [on May 8th] I sent him a nice text and an e-mail and a phone message, saying, ‘Hey, Sammy here. Missed you, buddy. Hope you’re doing good. Happy birthday. And if you ever wanna get together and talk, be buddies, be friends, here’s my e-mail, here’s my text, and here’s my house phone number…’ Nothing. Oh, and I said, ‘How’s Ed doing? I hope he’s healthy. And give him my love.’ Nothing. Nothing! Ooooh! I mean, that’s, like, wow! I guess no waters went under that bridge. And when I looked at the bridge, it was dry. There’s not a drop that comes down underneath that bridge.”

Hagar also stated that he asked original Van Halen singer David Lee Roth to join him at his inaugural, High Tide Beach Party & Car Show, scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 6th in Huntington Beach, California. “We invited Roth, offered to hire Roth to come and jam with my band at the festival,” Sammy said. “And you know what his guy said? ‘Oh, sounds interesting. We’ll run it past Dave.’ Then radio silence. [Laughs]”

Last November, Sammy said that he had lost hope there will ever be another Van Halen reunion, explaining that Eddie and Alex Van Halen do not want to reconnect with him as friends.

During an appearance on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation, Hagar revealed that he didn’t hear from the Van Halen brothers on his birthday, which he interpreted as them having no interest in rekindling their friendship.

    I agree with T when he referred to the smack Sammy has talked about the brothers in his book. I dont think I would talk to him again either to be honest with you. Why would you talk so much s–t and then expect to be friends again later. This isnt the first time Sammy has reached out to one of the guys to be ignored. How do we know this ? because Sammy tells us so. Do you think telling people your being ignored will get one of the brothers to finally talk to you? I like Sammy but damn this obsession with the van halen guys needs to end. Its getting kinda weird if you ask me.

      Except for the #1 question Hagar gets asked over and over and over again. What about VH? He answers the questions.

      Since when is telling people your experiences with people talking s-t? Besides the nostalgia tour and the endless EVH guitar versions, the Van Halen’s are MIA.

      I’s just music folks. Maybe the VH’s can stop being babies and get over it. Hagar just wanted to play music, Anthony too. Ed wanted to play games.

      Ya but if you want to be friends or remain family there`s just some things you don`t say to the public so you can sell a book. Can`t have it both ways.

    I love Sammy and he is the best. He’s certainly more in touch with is emotional side. Sad to see he keeps projecting on Alex & Edward. He really needs to move on and stop kicking this carcass of a dead horse.

    Please just stop. Even when someone asks you, and I know that’s all they ask you…just stop.
