Hagar said that he had second thoughts about painting such a brutal picture of him, but decided it was a story he needed to tell or otherwise be seen as the villain of the piece.
“Eddie’s always made me out to be the bad guy. He’s always had the upper hand when it comes to the press and could tell the story and frame it the way he wanted.
“The  reunion tour, for example: I just thought that story needed to be told so that fans know why everything’s happened the way it has. I didn’t like what was going on at the time and how everything went down. I didn’t like the way Mikey [Michael Anthony] was treated and the way they tried to treat me.
“They – and I’m talking about Eddie and Alex here – really made the experience unpleasant. I tried to get out of that tour. After 40 shows, I tried to quit. That’s how bad it was.
