David Lee Roth Buries Sammy Hagar at Billboard Music Awards

Posted on by bryan.floyd

Van Halen frontman, David Lee Roth was asked this weekend at the Billboard Music Awards if he planned on playing any Sammy Hagar-era tunes during the bands current tour.
Roth responded to the question in a way ONLY David Lee Roth could.

In fairness, Roth isn’t exactly wrong. The band sold a whopping 57 million copies during the Roth-era as opposed to 27 million during the Hagar years. Still, that’s a little harsh David!
Question is, are you a bigger fan of Van-Roth or Van-Hagar?
