30 Years Ago Today – Van Hagar Began!! 

By Steve Craig

On This day in 1986… “5150” the first of FOUR Number One Van Halen Albums was released… Those 4 featured Sammy Hagar as the new lead vocalist!  Hard to believe that the Diamond Dave Era didn’t net then any time at the top of the Billboard Album Chart… Sammy’s configuration would do that for ’em…

And… on this anniversary, more of the stars are aligning that could indicate a Van Hagar reunion and tour!

Sammy and Eddie Van Halen are talking nice… Now we learn that Eddie’s son and bass player Wolfgang is working on a solo album and tour.  That could lead to original bassist and background singer Michael Anthony coming back into the fold.  Sammy is allegedly working on burying THAT hatchet with Eddie & Alex.

READ MORE HERE on how Sammy says that leaving the band in ’96 was a HUGE mistake!
