Former Van Halen frontman and The Circle musician right now, Sammy Hagar, was recently interviewed by ‘1st Look Presents: Celebrity Sleepover‘ this week and shared the first-ever moment he found out Van Halen frontman Eddie Van Halen’s unexpected death.

As you may already know, Van Halen frontman and legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen passed away at the age of 65 after his long-time struggle with throat cancer. These days, Sammy unveiled the latest-ever phone call he made with Eddie and how he said ‘Don’t fucking call my brother, fucking call me!’ after hearing Sammy’s voice.

In his latest statements, Sammy stated that he fell apart after hearing the bad news. However, after swallowing a relaxing pill, he felt proud thinking that they made eleven years of music together while he was fronting Van Halen from 1985 to 1996.

Here is what Hagar said:

“I fell apart. It just was such a miracle that him and I hooked up about four months, five months before that. We went really into some soul talking about doing something next year.

The way I swallowed this pill and have been able to say… You know what, we made 11 years of music together. We wrote some 40, 50 million-selling records and some of the greatest songs in rock history. I’m so fortunate to have that.”

He continued:

“And then to have Michael Anthony standing next to me onstage. And we play songs like ‘Right Now,’ ‘Pound Cake’ and ‘Top of the World,’ ‘Finish What You Started.’ It’s like, yeah, this music lives. This is what Eddie left.”
