I find the Sammy Hagar era with Van Halen to be flaccid and dull – it is back:
- Sammy Hagar has returned to the Van Halen fold after an eight-year break, and the veteran rock band will launch a U.S. tour in June, it said Friday.
The group’s Web site features the greeting “Eddie, Alex, Mike & Sammy Hit the Road” as well as a new photo of the foursome. The trek will play North American arenas beginning June 11 at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, N.C., and wrapping Aug. 19 at the Staples Center in its Los Angeles hometown.

Sammy has returned to the “band” page of the site also – can you believe he is 56 years old? He looks pretty good – they all do.
