I did some research and tried to pull out some old, classic Van Halen that they had not played in 10 or 15 years. I think that was Sammy's mistake. I he didn't want to do the Dave stuff.


My favorite Extreme records were the last two. I can't listen to the first one.


In my writing with Extreme, there are heavy themes. The cover photo has me with a gun to my neck. I am not advocating suicide. I am taking the philosophy that man is the measure of his own fate.


Michael Anthony is the Diplomat of Rock N Roll. He is the regular guy.


There is no substitute for jamming and getting to know each other on the road.


Dave thought he was bigger than Van Halen the band. So there was this catfight going on for 10 years.


You can tell the difference between songs that were created in a garage and songs that were created in the studio.


We didn't gel with Poison and the Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi was the best of the pop metal bands, but we never fit in with the hair metal stuff. We were never as hip as the Chili Peppers. We were in the middle.


They hated Sammy Hagar for 12 years and they hate him to this day.


You have Extreme and Van Halen and the history that I have with other people I played with. There are some effects that will hopefully break that stereotype.


I sing in a higher register, and you haven't heard that on the radio in years.


When I was in Van Halen I was hitting notes that were out of my range. I never went for those registers before until Eddie pulled it out of me.


The voices on the record, that was trying to treat my voice like guitar players treat guitar tones.


I don't know if I have enough guts to do a whole standard jazz record.


We weren't One Hit Wonders. We had a few hits.


If I had had a chance to tour with Van Halen before the record, I think it would have been a different record.


I am a big Pink Floyd fan. That is where a lot of the concept lyrics come from.


When I was singing Jamie's Cryin', people were going out of their mind because it was the first time they got to see Eddie, Michael and Alex play those songs. That was a thrill.


Whether I sound like Sammy or not is purely coincidence. You have got to hand it to him, he sings his ass off. There is no moss on that stone.


I have had success throughout the years. Some of the hard rock bands today don't have the history that I have.
