Sammy Hagar Refutes David Lee Roth Era Van Halen Claim


Sammy Hagar isn't going to stand by and let people put words in his mouth. So when a fan made an outrageous claim on the former Van Halen frontman's Instagram, he stepped in to set the record straight.

Saying he was "disappointed" with what Hagar wrote in his book, user rkraft6010 alleged that the singer said "VH wasn't even filling small arenas" before he joined the group.

Hagar immediately fired back, "No way did I say that."

Several others jumped in to defend Hagar, with one pointing out how the band just came off the "monster of an album" 1984, while another added, "I just read that book man, that was not said."
