In a new interview with California Rock News’ Clay Marshall, former Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar admitted he would love to make one last show with Van Halen.
Sammy revealed if he has only got one more show left in my whole life, he would choose Eddie / Alex Van Halen and Michael Anthony.
“If there was ever going to be one reunion — I’d say, you’ve got one more shot, one more; you’re going to put the guys together — it would be Van Halen.
Not for a tour; not to make a record; not to go on and on and on, because I don’t think we’re there. I don’t think I can be in the same headspace as those guys personally.
We’re in different headspaces, so I don’t think we could create well together, but just one time for a good time?”
He concluded, saying:
“Van Halen, number one, hands down. If I said I’ve only got one more show left in my whole life, who would you want it to be with?
Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, and Michael Anthony.“
Van Halen, a legendary band that’s credited with restoring hard rock music to the forefront of the scene have been inactive for a while now. The last Van Halen album titled A Different Kind Of Truth was released back in 2012 and was hugely successful. The band toured for few years and eventually stopped touring once the album cycle ended. In the last few years, there has been a discussion on the possibility of Van Halen reuniting with classic lineup. Although this rumor has been active since 2017, it hasn’t materialized to date. The last update we had was when Sammy Hagar, who fronted the band for more than a decade, hinted about the possibility of a world tour with classic Van Halen lineup.
