If they called me up, I would puke.
It was a horrible way to end the whole thing, ... So, I just say, 'Man, that's it for me. I'm not playing with people like this.'
I've been drinking tequila for a long time now, and it's never been about drinking to get drunk. I don't do that. I never drink tequila during the day, and I don't drive at night.
He just was the most humble rock star I have ever met, besides having the best hands of any bass player in the history of rock and roll
When he called me, my stomach went wrench! ... [I thought], Maybe Dave and I can buddy up and all of a sudden I'll just get in a car at the end of the tour and drive down and see Eddie and Alex [Van Halen] and say, 'OK, guys, off your asses, let's go! We're going out and doing this.'
Seeing what kind of person Dave is, now I know why they have never been able to do the reunion with him because he is unreasonable, ... He's a complete nut. He is not an average bear. He's on the moon. He's unreasonable and he's shot.
Valerie is a pretty strong woman. She's not intimidated.
It's kind of a groovy record, ... It's almost a little retro. It's not '80s-type fist-in-the-air Sammy Hagar -- well, a couple of songs are always like that because that's where I came from -- but it's almost more '70s rock.
It was just way too drawn out. I can't work like that.
I would like to enlighten people.
Overall, we had about 50 meetings where the brothers would say that I couldn't do any solo records, I couldn't write for other people, I couldn't do this and I couldn't do that. These guys were trying to nail my feet to the ground.
I'm John Lee Hooker in the sense that he was a blues man and he played blues his whole life. I'm a rock guy and I'm going to play rock music my whole life.
It's a good thing I don't read everything Eddie says, or I'd be up in arms and not enjoying my life.
I've never met or spoken to David Lee Roth, yet it's rather ironic that even he's saying Eddie's lying about things. I'm saying he's not telling the truth, yet Eddie insists that the two of us are lying! You be the judge.
The reason I didn't fly over from Maui at their beck and call is my wife was about to have a baby at any time. Those guys knew that. These guys would not compromise and meet me halfway.
