8 j/VEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 16, 1996 APPLAUSE THE SALINA JOURNAJ-i Celebrity Spotlight & Birthdays By The Associated Press In the Spotlight — Fan JIalen'* Goodbye Gwty* It's a saga more worthy of a soap opera than a rock band: Eleven years ago, lead singer David Lee Roth left Van Halen and was replaced by Sammy Hagar. Recently, the roles reversed with Hagar leaving after learning that Roth was secretly recording songs with Van Halen. Then Roth, who turns 41 on Oct. 10, was reunited with the band at the MTV Video Awards in June. The foursome hugged and received loud applause at the show. At the time of the awards, Roth appeared ready to return. When asked what the change meant for his solo career, Roth replied: "What solo career?" Only now Van Halen says it has found a new lead singer: Gary Cherone of Extreme, which has had hits like "More Than Words." Roth acknowledges that the band had only agreed to record "a couple of songs" and told him it "isn't a sure thing." But he says Van Halen unfairly trotted him but at the MTV Video Awards, suggesting the original band was back to stay. "I wanted to believe it just as much as anyone else," he said. As for Hagar, who turns 49 on Oct. 13, he described his split with Van Halen earlier this year as "devastating, backstabbing, I- don't-get-it, real big disappointment." Although Hagar said he harbored no ill will toward Roth, he thought the other members considered his predecessor to be their worst enemy. "The three of the guys in the band hated him more than anyone on the planet. They wouldn't even talk to the guy. If anyone brought up the name, they would freak out," Hagar said. Roth was lead singer of the Van Halen when it formed in the 1970s. The band recorded a string of best-selling albums and hit singles including "Jump" and __"You Really Got Me." Roth left in 1985 in a bitter split with Van Halen to pursue a solo career. He was replaced by Hagar, who was a chart veteran as a solo artist. Roth had solo hits with "California Girls," "Just a Gigolo" and "Yankee Rose." Van Halen went on to record several albums including "OU812," which featured Hagar's lyrics and vocals. Hagar, meanwhile, continued a parallel solo career. He was named Outstanding Male Vocalist at the 1991 and 1993 Bay Area Music Awards in San Francisco.
