Sammy Hagar - Hagar: 'I Don't Like Van Halen Brothers Anymore'

Rocker Sammy Hagar appears to have written off any possibility of reteaming with Van Halen after revealing he no longer likes the brothers behind the band.
The ex-Van Halen frontman tells Billboard.com he's "disappointed" with guitarist Eddie Van Halen and his drummer brother Alex for the way they have treated bass player and his Chickenfoot bandmate Michael Anthony.
He says, "I'm so disappointed in those guys. I'm not even angry. I'm just disappointed. I really don't like them anymore, and I can't tell you how sad it is to me that what we had as creative guys, and as a friendship, how it just went away.
"I miss Van Halen (but) I don't like them f**kers, and f**k those guys for what they did to Mikey especially, not me. Unnecessary. Bad guys. But I miss 'em, you know. I miss that musicianship and that creative spark and that friction that made it all work."
Hagar recently confessed he'd like to reunite with his former bandmates at some point while he was promoting new book Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock.
