Sammy Hagar Addresses Van Halen Reunion Rumors

11-22-03 Keavin
Former Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar made a very un-Van Halen like move on Friday and actually responded to rumors that he was going to reunite with his former band. He also took the opportunity to update fans on what he has planed in the coming weeks. 

Hagar Posted an update to his official website, RedRocker.com and addressed the reunion rumors and where his current relationship with the Van Halen camp actually stands. 

Here is Sammy’s message: A couple of months ago I called Alex out of the blue because we had run into a mutual friend and both of us said to tell each other "hello". So I said, "I am going to call him" and we talked. Alex said "Hey, next time you are down here call me and we’ll have dinner or lunch or something." So a few weeks ago I was in L.A. I called Al, we had lunch, spent the whole day together. It was great. Reconnecting as friends. That was the end of it. A couple weeks later I talked to Ed on the phone, and a few times since then. It’s like old times as friends but nothing more than that. It’s great to have open communications with some old friends again, much better than being in a maze. If anything develops more from that when the time is right, I will keep you Posted.
