Sammy Hagar and Eddie Van Halen finally made peace during final phone call

Sammy Hagar revealed details about his final phone call with late rocker Eddie Van Halen.  

Originally Published by:

“I said, ‘Why don’t you respond? I’ve been reaching out,’” Hagar recalled, “and Ed said, ‘Why didn’t you call me? Don’t f–king call my brother, f–king call me!’ And I said, ‘I love you man,’ and it was like, boom, we were good. It was a beautiful thing.”

With his distinct solos, Eddie Van Halen was the engine behind the ultimate California party band and helped knock disco off the charts starting in the late 1970s with his band’s self-titled debut album and then with the blockbuster record “1984,” which contains the classics “Jump,” “Panama” and “Hot for Teacher.” 

His son, Wolf, announced news of his death on Twitter on Oct. 6. 

“I can’t believe I’m having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning,” he wrote at the time.
