    it's hilarious when fred puts down accomplished musicians. that's the one profession where he shouldn't be criticizing people. fred's just a jealous, failed musician and should realize that's exactly what he sounds like when he says this shit.

    Sammy Hagar put himself up there with Joe Perry and Fred disagreed. I agree Fred on this. Sammy Hagar is a dewsh.

    I know people hate Sammy but I caught the very end of that interview and heard Sammy's bluesy rock song, I think he is very cool and liked the song. Montrose was great and I routinely plagerize Sammy's solo stuff because its so good and catchy and no one knows it Poundcake!

    Fred to say he's not a good guitarist was bs, he's not Stevie Vie but I don't see Fred setting the world on fire. props for sticking up for MA too. Just seems like a cool dude

    Sammy didn't play lead guitar in his solo band, Gary Phil did. :grad:

    I do agree with Fred on this, not that I want to, but he is correct.

    It is Gary Pihl. And Sammy was lead guitar and Pihl was rhythm guitar most of the time (although Pihl had lead or co-lead on some songs). I don't think Hagar's guitar playing is spectacular though.

    For an 80s guitarist, Hagar certainly was good. But most 80s lead guitarists seemed to try to emulate Eddie Van Halen in the worst possibly way with over the top riffs and criminally overusing the whammy bar. So I don't know if it is saying much. Hagar clearly isn't in Joe Perry's league.

    Hagar has sold tens of millions of albums and was hand-picked to front the biggest rock band in the world.

    Fred has sold tens of albums and sits next to Benji and does sound drops of wack packers.




    Hagar looks at Fred as a musician like Fred looks at ETM as an actor.

    Fred might be right but I don't know that he has any room to judge anyone.

    observations:

    he's wearing a triumph shirt.

    i believe i heard him rhyme soul sister with blood blister. as a threat, no less.

    fred's big finish jump was a double fail @2:50

    a fine display of fred's on-his-toes comedic wit during the interview @3:09

    way shitty song

    fuck you, fred, you suck

    I've always thought Sammy was a damn fine guitarist who could hold his own. On the level of EVH? Of course not, then again neither is Perry. Perry is pretty overrated, IMO. Basic blues player, cool rock n' roll look but a bit of a hack when compared to Brad Whitford.

    I love that live version, but disagree about Joe Perry
    His dirty style was a precursor to a lot of guys like Slash & others
