Mikey Performing at Burlington, IA.
I have been a Van Halen fan since 1978 and a Sammy Hagar fan since 1979 (Saw him open for Boston in Milwaukee, WI.) I was floored when VH released their 1st album. I loved Sammy’s raw energy, it was contagious.
Always thought Van Halen was great.... Until they started to screw with Sammy!
To make it worse, they now screw with Mikey!
I have never seen top performers (DLR, EVH, AVH) from a great band act like such assholes!
After reading Red, the picture painted was clear, albeit biased. But Mikey said it all when he said "if Sammy said it happened, then it happened".
