In Van Halen there were moments, like in some of the ballads, I put my heart and soul into those records. Those lyrics when I sang 'em, I gave myself goosebumps.
Sammy Hagar
Overall, we had about 50 meetings where the brothers would say that I couldn't do any solo records, I couldn't write for other people, I couldn't do this and I couldn't do that. These guys were trying to nail my feet to the ground.
Sammy Hagar
I had a solo career before Van Halen. My fan base filtered through Van Halen with me and came right on out the other side with me.
Sammy Hagar
It's hard to say this about a guy like Eddie Van Halen, one of the greatest guitar players who ever lived, but he's really limited to a style and they're locked into it.
Sammy Hagar
I see couples fighting about the stupidest things. You just have to rise above everything.
Sammy Hagar
The reason my voice is sounding more passionate is because I'm singing directly from the heart.
Sammy Hagar
I've never done a box set, and Eddie's full of it if he says otherwise.
Sammy Hagar
I don't want to talk about negative, dark things. The only thing I've got against stuff like Marilyn Manson is, they make unbelievable videos and unbelievable images.
Sammy Hagar
I think all the bad blood started when Geffen released a greatest hits package of my solo stuff.
Sammy Hagar
Dave was great in Van Halen. No question about it. He was one of the best at being Mr. Rock Star. But it's sickening to see a guy still trying to be that with a wig on 20 years later.
Sammy Hagar
If I would go up on a high note, Eddie would want a low one. That's how petty the situation had become.
Sammy Hagar
I've been drinking tequila for a long time now, and it's never been about drinking to get drunk. I don't do that. I never drink tequila during the day, and I don't drive at night.
Sammy Hagar
The reason I didn't fly over from Maui at their beck and call is my wife was about to have a baby at any time. Those guys knew that. These guys would not compromise and meet me halfway.
Sammy Hagar
If I would have ever dreamed that I wouldn't be in Van Halen anymore and was going to have resume my solo career again, I would have never contributed anything towards my own greatest hits package.
Sammy Hagar
It's a good thing I don't read everything Eddie says, or I'd be up in arms and not enjoying my life.
Sammy Hagar
When they brought Roth back into the picture, obviously I didn't go along with that too well.
Sammy Hagar
I looked at Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and the boys up there thinking, I want to be that.
Sammy Hagar
I've never met or spoken to David Lee Roth, yet it's rather ironic that even he's saying Eddie's lying about things. I'm saying he's not telling the truth, yet Eddie insists that the two of us are lying! You be the judge.
Sammy Hagar
I wasn't writing the music. Ed would write a piece of music. I'd listen to it and come up with a melody and then we would arrange it. We'd put it together and I would write lyrics to my melodies.
Sammy Hagar
All he cares about is going out there with his Jack Daniels bottle. Nothing has changed. That's kind of sad. If David was doing better than he used to be, then that would be different. But it was a joke and he made it that way.
Sammy Hagar
Everything that Eddie has said about me is the total opposite of what really happened. Eddie says I wanted to be a solo artist. No, Eddie wanted to be a solo artist.
Sammy Hagar
