“I don't think anyone knows. But when David Lee Roth left Van Halen, I was living in the Bay Area and wasn't sure what to do or what to stop, ”said Perry. "I don't remember how it came about, but either I called Eddie or Eddie called me." . "Eddie said I should come over sometime and we could jam and do a piece," Perry recalls.

I don't know if I want to be that guy. ” It turned out differently: While Perry was still thinking, Sammy Hagar contacted the band. Apparently he hesitated less long to follow in Roth's footsteps.
