Sammy Hagar Reflects On Led Zeppelin Reunion
The Circle frontman Sammy Hagar recently made an appearance on The Mike & Carla Morning Show. During the interview, he commented on the possibility of a Led Zeppelin reunion.
As you might probably agree, Led Zeppelin was one of the keystone bands in the rock music scene. Formed in 1968, the band enjoyed a phenomenal success until the tragic passing of John Bonham in 1980. After Led Zeppelin’s disbandment, the band members appeared on the same stage from time to time, and this led to speculations about a possible reunion.
The rumors about such possibility began to circulate especially after Led Zeppelin’s 2007 Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert in London. Although the fans relentlessly hoped for a reunion and the other band members were quite eager, Robert Plant closed the doors firmly by declaring Led Zeppelin has ended.
Speaking about Led Zeppelin’s not reuniting, Sammy Hagar revealed that he doesn’t understand why they didn’t. He then argued that there might be bad blood between them, and they had the same problem in Van Halen as well. Following that, Hagar recalled the conflicts between him and Montrose’s Ronnie Montrose, and he implied that these problems are more serious and a lot harder to resolve for grown-up people.
Sammy Hagar told The Mike & Carla Morning Show that:
“I can’t understand why Led Zeppelin hasn’t done it. There must be some bad blood. But, who am I to talk? You know, in Van Halen, we had the same problem. Well, once we run heads with somebody as an adult, [but] when you are kids, you can fight like animals.
In Montrose, we could fight, fight, fight. As when Ronnie and I got older, we would see each other as hugs and kisses. You say ‘Oh man, how stupid.’ But when you get older, when you’ve grown up and you bump heads, it’s a lot harder.”
