Sammy Hagar sat down with Dan Rather to talk about his career and life. The 90-minute interview aired last night on Rather’s AXS TV show The Big Interview.

In the clip below, Sammy talks about the best times in Van Halen, and about how the death of Van Halen’s manager, Ed Leffler, led to the band’s breakup.

As Hagar explains, after Leffler’s death from cancer in 1995, Van Halen was vulnerable to managers and others who wanted to grab a piece of the band. “These people came after us and just destroyed that band.”
