David Lee Roth Alleges Sammy Hagar’s ‘Diarrhea Vitriol’ Linked to Alien Sex Probe

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former Van Halen frontmen David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar find themselves in a bizarre public feud, with Roth accusing Hagar of constant attacks and suggesting they stem from a purported alien abduction and “sex probing” experienced by Hagar.

In a video posted on YouTube titled “The Ballad Of Popsicle Sam,” Roth referenced Hagar’s belief that he was abducted by aliens and subjected to a sexual examination. Roth speculated, “I think we’ve arrived at both the technical and the medical answer that may explain some of Sammy Hagar’s conduct and his constant spew of vitriol in our direction. Sammy Hagar was abducted by aliens, and he was sex probed.” He admitted to having no knowledge of the specifics of an alien sex probing, but used the analogy of a damaged cassette tape player to portray the impact it may have had on Hagar.

Hagar first shared his UFO encounter in his 2011 memoir, where he described a vivid dream he had decades ago near Fontana, California, where he stumbled upon a UFO with aliens inside. Hagar later confirmed to MTV that he believed the encounter was a “download situation” where knowledge was transferred between him and the extraterrestrial beings.

The ongoing feud between Roth and Hagar dates back to their time together in Van Halen. Hagar replaced Roth as the lead singer in 1985 and recorded four successful albums with the band. However, the two frontmen have clashed over the years, with Hagar criticizing Roth’s singing abilities and stage persona. Hagar has also expressed frustration with Roth’s behavior during their joint 2002 tour.

Despite their differences, Hagar has stated that he has no problem with Roth and acknowledges his contributions to Van Halen’s legacy. He has attempted to maintain a level of respect and preserve the band’s reputation as one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

The public feud between the former Van Halen frontmen adds another layer to the band’s rich history, creating intrigue and speculation among fans and industry insiders. As the story develops, it remains to be seen whether Roth and Hagar will find common ground or continue their public sparring.

This unusual dispute highlights the enduring tension between band members and the complexities that can arise in the world of rock and roll. The feud serves as a reminder that even legendary musicians are not immune to personal conflicts, adding another layer to the overall narrative of Van Halen’s storied career.
