It must be great being Sammy Hagar. Not only has he sung in two of the most influential rock bands ever – Montrose and Van Halen – he also sells shitloads of records as soon as he releases a solo album and the two Chickenfoot albums, the band he has with guitarist Joe Satriani, former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ groove master, drummer Chad Smith, have both gone platinum. Add that to the fact that he sold 80 % of his Cabo Wabo Tequila company for 80 million dollars, and that’s why he can relax in the sun on the beach in one of his houses in Mexico or Hawaii, write a bunch of songs, call his friends and just record an album without worrying about studio costs or whether the album will sell at all. But it will sell, I can guarantee that. Oh yes, it must be great being Sammy Hagar!
