Sammy Hagar Wants To Manage GNR

Plus he says Van Halen used tapes of Michael Anthony on their last tour, and he doesn\'t believe Van Halen will ever tour again

In an interview with music blog site Attention Deficit Delirium, Hagar says that he would like to be in charge of an original Guns N Roses reunion.  

"They've proved it again and again and again that it ain't [about] the money," observed Hagar. "They just don't get along because Axl goes out for a lot less money with his version of Guns N' Roses, and Slash goes out for a lot less money with Velvet Revolver or by himself. The amount of money they could make if they got it all back together, made a great record and toured the world would probably be as much as the Rolling Stones [get], and for them not to do it, it obviously ain't about the money. Because they could do it. I would manage them. I'd be their manager and make sure they got the right deal from all the promoters. They could be the biggest band in the world if they wanted to."

In the interview Sammy also spoke about the much rumoured new Van Halen album and rumoured tour.

"I just don't see Van Halen getting together again," the singer stated. "I don't know what would have to happen for it to happen. I don't think they're ever going to get together with Dave. They've been working on that record for a year and a half or whatever, and they keep postponing and postponing it. I just know that Wolfie, Dave and Ed are not the Van Halen that the world wants to see. To do it with David without Mike was a horrible decision, but those guys haven't made a good decision since I left the band. I don't think so. It's not about me, I just think that they really burned Mikey and burned the fans by throwing him out before Dave came back finally."

He went on to accuse Van Halen of using tapes of his Chickenfoot bandmate Michael Anthony's backing vocals on their most recent tour, despite the manner in which he was dispatched from the band.

"Those vocal harmonies on the last tour were Mike on tape," asserted Hagar. "Mike should've reamed them for it. Wolfie don't sing like that, and Ed sure as hell don't. Go on the Internet and listen to Ed's voice live from the reunion with me. Hear him sing on 'When It's Love' and some of those songs. Ed can't sing, and his voice is shot if he can, from cigarettes and booze anyway."
