Former Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar says he was offered the chance to replace Steven Tyler as the frontman of Aerosmith but that he turned down the opportunity because it would have been a difficult transition.Other groups Sammy Hagar passed up:
Hagar tells Forbes magazine he has been approached over the years to join a string of top bands. "I was asked at one time to be in Motley Crue," he says. "I was asked at one time to be in Pantera by their managers. I was asked to be in Velvet Revolver when Scott Weiland quit."
Hagar suggests he would not have done Tyler's distinctive vocals justice, and takes a swipe at David Lee Roth, the man he replaced in Van Halen. He adds, "It was easy because Dave wasn't a great singer."
