Sammy Hagar Says He And Eddie Van Halen Should Have Been In Jail

Sammy Hagar and Eddie Van Halen

In a recent story that he posted on his official YouTube channel, Sammy Hagar discussed an illicit activity that he and Eddie Van Halen engaged in while living next door in Malibu. Aside from the first time you had sex in a car. That’s a whole other story. One of my favorite memories of anything that occurs in a car is this. However, on 5150, Eddie Van Halen owned a Lamborghini Countach, I own a 512 Ferrari Boxer, and our Foreigner producer, Mick Jones, rented a Corvette.

Sammy continued, recalling that it occurred around “Best of Both Worlds” (2004). He said, “After we wrapped up filming, at around two in the morning, we were all staying in Malibu, and to be honest, I think it was ‘Best of Both Worlds.'” Mick Jones had rented a house nearby, and Eddie and I shared a neighboring residence. With no traffic, the three of us took a trip up Mulholland Drive, winding through the back roads of Highway 1, racing three cars on the way back. Yes, we ought to have been incarcerated. But we were shattered; it was unreal. We simply raced the entire way, like you would on a two-lane road when someone is traveling three abreast. Extremely risky, but we made it through and made it out alive.  I’d never do it again, and I don’t recommend it.”

Hagar Glad They Could Talk Before Eddie Van Halen’s Death

Sammy Hagar discussed his text conversations with Eddie in an interview with Fox News earlier this year. Eddie passed away in October 2020 at the age of 65 following years of cancer treatment.
“Well, it means a lot to me to have been able to text Eddie and have a great conversation with him. I would have felt terrible if he had passed away and we had never exchanged an “I love you” statement. He said I doubt I could have spoken at all. I couldn’t discuss it with you in that way.
Creative differences caused a fallout, and in 1996 Van Halen fired Hagar from the band. Hagar rejoined the band from 2003 to 2005, but they continued to publicly feud even while touring together.
