Sammy Hagar Just Dropped The Bomb On David Lee Roth

It seems like bygones aren’t bygones between Van Halen vocalists Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth. Hagar, who is touring with his new band The Circle, was recently interviewed by Planet Rock and answered rivalry rumors between him and Roth. Hagar was blunt in his opinion of David Lee Roth.
“I don’t respect Dave’s artistry, but I do think he’s clever and a great showman and what he did with Van Halen in the early days was fantastic. Van Halen couldn’t have made it without him.”
Sammy Hagar even goes lengths to claim his time with Van Halen made the band more successful, than with Roth’s own stint was. “God bless Dave, but he refuses to acknowledge that Van Halen with me was even more successful than Van Halen with him, and that’s very stupid of him. That’d be like me not acknowledging what he did for the band before I joined: that would be stupid, wouldn’t it?”
We’re awaiting for David Lee Roth’s response, who is currently holding his online podcast series The New Roth Show on YouTube.
