Sammy Hagar Asked (Or Waiting To Be Asked) To Join Every Band That’s Ever Needed A Lead Singer

Check out what the ol’ Red Rocker had to say in a recent interview with forbes.com:

I was asked at one time to be in Mötley Crüe. I was asked at one time to be in Pantera by their manAgers. I was asked to be in Velvet Revolver when Scott Weiland quit and went back to the Stone Temple Pilots. I was waiting to be asked to be in Led Zeppelin to say “no”, since they were the greatest band on earth and no one could replace Robert Plant. I was asked to be in Aerosmith and I said no. Certain bands and certain front man singers are more difficult to replace than others. Steven Tyler and that band have stayed together for forty years and you don’t want to walk into something like that. They had one moment years ago, when they replaced Joe Perry, but it’s still always been Steven at the front of Aerosmith. You don’t replace that. When I came into Van Halen, it was easy because Dave wasn’t a great singer, but he was a good front man. We were all lucky that the fans accepted it and it got bigger. I would avoid bands that are going to break up pretty soon.

Really, Sammy? You were waiting to be asked to join Led Zeppelin? In another part of the interview he said he was selling out the same size arenas as Van Halen before he joined the band and I seriously doubt that. Even though I’m not the biggest fan of Hagar era Van Halen, I like Sammy but I think he’s exaggerating here and most definitely looking to drum up some press to help boost his book sales. His memoir Red: My Uncensored Life In Rock is in stores now and he is currently on a press tour promoting the book.
