Sammy Hagar, From Colton, California, was popular in the early- mid 1980's for fast paced, guitar-driven, hard rock with a masculine, lets-go-party attitude, joined the band Van Halen as lead vocalist after David Lee Roth's departure from the group. (Before joining Van Halen he sang lead vocals in Ronnie Montrose's classic rock band Montrose, and had some single output, notably his release, "I Can't Drive 55".) As much as it was public surprise when Hagar joined the band, so it was when he left. Sammy Hagar now peddles his own line of high-quality "Cabo Wabo" tequila. In the Spring of 2007, Hagar sold his stake in Cabo Wabo tequila to an Italian beverage company for a reported $80 million.Read More...
Hagar, now a sort of modern-day Jimmy Buffett, has earned his place in rock n roll history as one of hard rock's premier front men who not only has an ample, strong, belting vocal range with soulful melody and tone, but his duality as a formidable lead guitarist and guitar-riff-monger puts him in a league shared with few others in terms of versatility and overall right to rock.
He now tours with Mike Anthony, former bassist for Van Halen.
He resides with his family in Mill Valley, CA.

Hagar is currently in a band called "Chickenfoot" with Michael Anthony, Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith and guitarist Joe Satriani. Their self titled debut album was released to critical acclaim
Sammy Hagar is also known as the Red Rocker, due to the fact he almost always wears red shirts or plays a red guitar, or more likely that he has red hair?

- LyricsOne foot on the brake and one on the gas, hey!
Well, there's too much traffic, I can't pass, no
So I tried my best illegal move
A big black and white come and crushed my groove again
Go on and write me up for one twenty five
- LyricsHead bangers in leather
Sparks flyin' in the dead of the night
It all comes together
When they shoot out the lights
50,000 watts of power
- LyricsI've heard it called by different names
All over the world but it's all the same
There's so many ways to make love
A million ways, I've been thinking of, yeah
Well, this one way love affair, it ain't fair
It ain't no kind of fair to me
It's all give and take, and you just take
And I can't take it, you see
- LyricsI don't mind, when you act your age
It suits me fine, that you treat me like a child
And I can't deny, when I'm with you that you
Step outside, of all those fears locked up inside
Your love is driving me crazy
