Van Halen released what turned out to be their last album with Sammy Hagar 28 years ago this week. ‘Balance’ was released on January 24th, 1995.
Hagar and Michael Anthony both commented on the anniversary.
Hagar said, "Happy anniversary to Balance! The Balance record was such a great record, but it was during hard times for the band, and a very hard record to make. A lot of painful dark images, bickering amongst the band, health issues..."
Michael added, "By the time the Balance record came out, there was lots of tension within the band, personally and professionally. One thing that was understood though was that the music was the important thing, and when we got together to play live we kicked ass, be it in concert or guesting on a TV show."
They’ve also posted a video of the band performing "Amsterdam" on The Jon Stewart Show on MTV from 1995.
