As we all know Sammy Hagar replaced David Lee Roth in Van Halen for a few years and now he is saying that they weren’t the only band who wanted him to replace their lead singer. He told Forbes, “I was asked at one time to be in Mötley Crüe. I was asked at one time to be in Pantera by their mangers. I was asked to be in Velvet Revolver when Scott Weiland quit and went back to the Stone Temple Pilots. I was waiting to be asked to be in Led Zeppelin to say no, since they were the greatest band on earth and no could replace Robert Plant. I was asked to be in Aerosmith and I said no. Certain bands and certain front man singers are more difficult to replace than others. Steven Tyler and that band have stayed together for forty years and you don’t want to walk into something like that. They had one moment years ago, when they replaced Joe Smith, but it’s still always been Steven at the front of Aerosmith. You don’t replace that. When I came into Van Halen, it was easy because Dave wasn’t a great singer, but he was a good front man. We were all lucky that the fans accepted it and it got bigger. I would avoid bands that are going to break up pretty soon.”
I think he has a better chance replacing Tommy Shaw in The Styx (no offense Tommy) than Vince Neil in Motley Crue, don’t you agree?
My reaction when he told the world that he was abducted by aliens is the same to what he shared with Forbes…he has been drinking way too much of his Cabo Wabo.
I am not saying that he is a bad singer, he just isn’t all that. I saw him live with Van Halen and a solo Vince Neil was the opening act and let me tell you I was left unimpressed.
