Former Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar posted a new video on Instagram to show how to make his favorite recipe for breakfast, however, fans were more interested in the current status of Van Halen and Sammy’s involvement in any future projects with the band.
As you might know, Van Halen released its tenth studio album named ‘Balance‘ on January 24, 1995. Only a month later, the album reached number 1 on the U.S Billboard 200. It was the last one of the four Van Halen studio albums featuring Sammy Hagar as the frontman.
During the period of ‘Balance’s release Sammy Hagar and Eddie and Alex Van Halen were allegedly in an ongoing conflict. They had some disagreements about the songs in the album following by a medical issue regarding Sammy’s pregnant wife. Following their argument on the incident, Sammy was fired from the band. However, Eddie claimed that Sammy was the one who left the band.
However, after the devastating loss of Eddie Van Halen on October 6, 2020, there have been reunion rumors about Sammy Hagar and the rest of the Van Halen members on social media. Hagar even claimed that he had been trying to convince everyone, including David Lee Roth, to reunite prior to Eddie’s death.
In his recent Instagram post, Sammy Hagar shared the recipe for his favorite breakfast and showed his skills as a chef. In the caption of his video, Sammy gave the ingredients for chili Quiles which he learned from the famous chef Dean Fearing.
Here is what Sammy Hagar wrote in the caption of his post:
“Chef Dean Fearing chili Quiles my favorite Cabo breakfast. five eggs, one chopped up jalapeños, one chopped up medium-sized tomato, 1/2 chopped onion Half a cup chopped cilantro, half a cup grated cheese(jack or cheddar) Salt and pepper Heaping handful of tortilla chips. sauté onion and jalapeño in a pan add the eggs after a few minutes, add tomatoes cheese, and tortilla chips after a couple of minutes.

In the comment section of his video, a fan wanted to know whether there were any plans to release ‘super deluxe box sets of all Van Hagar albums’ and other merchandise. In his response to the fan’s request, Sammy Hagar revealed that the Van Halen world is in limbo at the moment and claimed that Alex Van Halen was the only one who was taking charge in the band.
Furthermore, Hagar mentioned that he and Michael Anthony have been enjoying their projects with their band, The Circle, and preferred to stay out of Van Halen business. Yet, Sammy stated that he would love to see something like that happened in the future.
Here’s what a Van Halen fan asked:
“Sammy, we all want super deluxe box sets of all Van Hagar albums with outtakes, demos, photos, posters, live takes, etc. Make it happen. Bocephus mode!!”
To which Sammy responded:
“Oh, brother I know you get it right now the Van Halen the world is in limbo, no one taking charge except Alex and he doesn’t want to do a box set.
I would love to see that happen who knows down the road. Mikey and I are just loving The Circle and stay out of VH business for now. 😘”
