Could There Be a Van Halen/Van Hagar Tour?

If Sammy had it his way, there would be!

USA Today reports that Hagar made mention of this during a panel discussion at South By Southwest and says the flood of classic rock deaths in 2016 has made him want to bury the hatchet with his former bandmates.

"The last thing I wanted to do was all of a sudden find out you are sick or something and realize you have this bad blood and you don't want to take it to the grave," said Hagar, who also said, “I think the fans would die and go to heaven” if this tour happened.

Well…it certainly would be the “Best of Both Worlds.”


A Kinks Reunion Would Take A Miracle To Happen

M-I-R-A-C-L-E, miracle, according to Ray Davies.

The newly knighted Davies talked to the Belfast Telegraph and said “a reunion is unlikely at this stage – unless a miracle is going to happen. Everybody is on their own journey now.”

So…anyone else given up on a possible reunion, if only to potentially se Ray and Dave Davies duke it out?
