Former Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar recently posted a photo of his favorite Van Halen album ‘Balance’ and after receiving numerous comments considering a mistake that he made, he said that he thinks he might be blind.
‘Balance‘ is Van Halen’s tenth studio album and it was released in 1995. The album was extremely successful and it peaked at Number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and reached Triple Platinum status. It also came to be known as the band’s last album featuring Sammy Hagar as the lead singer.
As you may recall, in 1996 Sammy Hagar had a falling out with Van Halen, and the band was once again left without a lead singer. During that time, Van Halen’s manager called Gary Cherone to audition for the position of lead vocalist. The band members really appreciated the musician’s talent and passion, and Eddie said that he admired his songwriting and work ethic.
In his recent Instagram post, Sammy Hagar shared the signed ‘Balance’ album and said that he can’t believe it was released 26 years ago. Even though Hagar counted four signatures, namely, his, Eddie’s, Michael’s, and Alex’s, his fans warned him and said that there are actually four. As it turns out, the signature that Hagar missed was Gary Cherone’s and in his follow-up comment, Hagar said that it’s ‘f*cking awesome’ and that he’ll send this to Cherone and ‘give him some love.’
Here’s what Samy Hagar said in the caption of his recent Instagram post:
“26 years ago. All four signatures! #balance #vanhalen #timeflies #numberonerecord”
This is what Hagar said in the comment he posted later on:
“Y’all may think I am blind, sometimes I think I am blind, sometimes I think I am too. But I didn’t realize that was Gary Cherone’s signature on there with the rest of us, that’s fucking awesome. I’m sending this to him right now and giving him some love, he‘s a good guy and a great singer.”
