Sammy Hagar believes Van Halen tried to bury material from his tenure fronting the band.
In an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, Sammy said:
“It seems like since Van Halen did the Roth reunion that they tried to really bury the Van Hagar era.”
“They wouldn’t remaster it, they wouldn’t allow it to be in movies. They wouldn’t allow it to be licensed for video games and commercials. They pushed everything from the Roth era because they were doing that reunion. Understood.”
“It’s such great material. All number-one albums. You know, 50 million records.”
