1996: The day after David Lee Roth released an open letter apologizing to the media and the fans, stating that he was an unwitting participant in a Van Halen publicity stunt after recording a couple of songs for a greatest hits package and making an MTV Video Music Awards appearance (pictured), the rest of the band issues their own statement, saying they never suggested to Roth he was guaranteed to be the band's next lead singer following the June 1996 departure of Sammy Hagar, who had replaced Roth in 1985. This marked the second time Roth would be dismissed from the band.
