Former Van Halen star Sammy Hagar fears the group's much-hyped reunion tour will fall flat without original bassist MICHAEL ANTHONY. Anthony has been replaced by Eddie Van Halen's teenage son Wolfgang for the upcoming tour, and the band's Why Can't This Be Love singer insists fans won't appreciate the line-up change when shows begin. Hagar tells website KNAC.COM he would have refused to tour without Anthony - if he had been asked to join the reunion lineup. He says, "If Eddie wants to play with his son, fine. I love my son too, but I got him a different job. I just think that it should be Mike. "I just think the fans are gonna walk away with a little bit of a disappointment because Mike's a big part of that band."

No, I disagree, Fans will not be disappointed. Most will absolutely love the show and go away with a smile and a resolve to buy more c.d.'s, while some will critic, but they will be a minority. The shows will be great with a lot of energy. Being in their fifties, they are still young by some standards, and I believe they can still wow us. There are lots of comments about Eddie, and his medical history, but let he who is without a physical body cast the first stone. Dave is under fire for his language, which is accepted in a few questionable circles. But actually they are great together, and the sound is magnificent, entertaining, and has that swing. Yes,they are legends. I can't help it, I love them.

Is sammy out of his mind? Van halen back with dave is the best move ever. now van HALEN fans can hear real rock n roll,not all his sappy love songs,and his solo stuff. I pay to hear van halen not van hagar. sammy you suck,take all your money and fat mikkey and sail off in to the sun set. let the fans hear wolf,dave,alex,and of corse KING EDDIE DO THEIR MAGIC.maybe if when you were with them you sang more then 2 old van halen songs .and not when eagles fly you would still be there. I will say this one thing i will miss about sammy when he was with van HALEN at their shows i could go pee when he sang his solo stuff,now with dave back i`ll have to hold it for 2 hours,but well worth it. THE KINGS ARE BACK,THE KINGS ARE BACK,THANK GOD THE KINGS ARE BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sammy is having a jealousy attack. Sam,I used to really like you. Always thought you took the high road. Judging from your comments on this tour,I can see now why Ed has problems with you. You're a jerk. Instead of making snide comments in the press,why don't you work out and get rid of the middle age spread and do a kick ass tour instead. I can see why Ed wants his son in the band. He plays just as good,if not better than Michael Sobolewski. And his backing vocals sound just as great. I'll bypass the "Other Half" and see the real deal.
