Sammy Hagar is explaining his feelings about David Lee Roth.

In a new interview, Hagar was asked if his “distaste” for Roth is genuine and Hagar explained, “Well, we’re different kinds of people – we’re totally different. I’ve been married since I was young, I’ve got children, I’ve got grandchildren, I’m a real family kind of guy. I don’t do drugs, I don’t go out and party myself to death – I take what I do seriously, and when I go on stage, I’m in condition, I try to do that every time. It’s just a different work ethic, it’s a different thing. But, I respect what he did in Van Halen, so don’t ever get me wrong. He was great for that band, and he’s got a cool voice.”

Hagar went on to deliver one last jab saying, “He doesn’t sing well anymore, but on the early Van Halen records, he was great, he sounded great, I loved the way he sang his attitude and his persona.”

Who would you rather hang out with…David Lee Roth or Sammy Hagar?
