Sammy Hagar Apologizes To Van Halen for… Something?
Earlier this year, several classic rock fans’ dicks got super hard when Sammy Hagar and Eddie Van Halen interacted civilly on Twitter. It was the beginning of a 1992 mainstream rock fan’s wet dream.
Well, those oldsters should prepare to finally bust a greasy nut all over their computers (gross, why am I extending this metaphor?), because in a segment from an upcoming episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, Hagar apologizes to Van Halen for “all the bad things [he] said about [them].” Watch:
Aw, isn’t that nice? I mean, I’m not sure what exactly, he’s referring to, and from what I’ve gathered the Van Halen camp pulls some crazy shit, and when you quit the biggest rock band in the world it’s probably for a good reason, but hey, water under the bridge I guess? We all chill out with age. Well, most of us do. My family has what we call Irish Alzheimer’s, which means you forget everything but your grudges.
For me, weirder or more notable than the apology is that Hagar’s doing an episode of Oprah’s Where Are They Now? show. It’s maybe the least rocking thing on earth, and it’s a shame that the dude who made this song is appearing on it. That said, Van Halen did Ellen, so I guess it’s just par for the course to do this kind of thing when you’re a rock musician of a certain age.
The episode airs this Saturday at 10pm on OWN, if you get that channel.
