In a new Interview with Classic Rock, Sammy Hagar says he is “afraid” to contact Eddie and Alex Van Halen because he doesn’t want them to think that he wants to rejoin the band.
“I’m afraid if I ever reached out and really tried to contact Ed and Al, they would think that I was trying to get back in the band or I was trying to do a reunion. And I’m not.
He further added:
I am so content with THE CIRCLE — we play the VAN HALEN songs that I wrote with Ed as good as anybody, but I’m happy to have just five or six VAN HALEN songs in my set. It’s almost like I don’t want to be asked to do it because I’d feel like I had to do it, but I don’t really want to. I’m sorry I don’t.”
