Sammy Hagar Invited Alex Van Halen On Tour



Sammy Hagar says that he and his Van Halen bandmate Michael Anthony reached out to Alex Van Halen to ask him to take part in their upcoming The Best Of Both Worlds Tour, but Alex did not respond.

In a new interview, the Red Rocker explained, “Mike and I reached out to Alex. We reached out to him a dozen times before this tour, in every way. Email, text message, phone call, message on the machine, OK? No response. No response. I mean, we made every offer to get together or to just talk or to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. Go to the studio and play. Come to my house or I’ll come to your house. Go ride horses, go sit on the beach. What do you want to do? Let’s just do something. Let’s get together. And nothing. So, I don’t know. I know that he continues to grieve today over Eddie’s passing. And basically, Eddie was the only person that he actually ever played music with.”

Alex surprised fans last month when he auctioned his musical equipment, a move that many speculated was a signal that he has retired from music.
