Rock News Story of The Year - #2 – VAN HALEN
The release of new music by Van Halen with original lead singer David Lee Roth in 2012 was highly-anticipated by fans, but dissed at every turn by former VH frontman Sammy Hagar.
Still bitter and angry over his departure from VH, Hagar made a habit of slamming his former group at every turn.
In late January, Hagar did it again, comparing Chickenfoot to the reunited VH and offering to open for the group for free.
Check out this year’s #2 story on VAN HALEN here.
