Red Rocker Writing Bio

Fact and fiction might prove tough to sort out in a book by and about Sammy Hagar, but it's bound to be an entertaining read.  The Red Rocker himself says some of the things that are factual will be hard to believe, including the account of his dead drunk father actually dying in the back of a police car in Fonatana California.  Sammy, a brother and two sisters overcame that and a lot more while being raised by a mother who had only an 8th grade education and supported the family on income earned irnoning shirts and picking fruit.  Hagar says that his mother's '...heart, soul and creativity' helped her persevere and had a role in her four children to grow up to '...all have had good lives and no problems.'  Lots of legends surround the fun loving and occasionally Hell-raising former Montrose, Van Halen and current Chickenfoot member.  He's older and wiser, but still loves having a good time and providing good times through his music and his Cabo Wabo resorts and Sammy Hagar Beach Bars, both of which help fund his generous support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  No publishing date for Sammy Hagar Red has been set yet, but you can depend on Sammy to let the world know when Red is ready to be read.
