Publisher Comments:

For almost forty years, Sammy Hagar has beena fixture in rock music. From breaking intothe industry with the band Montrose to hismultiplatinum solo career to his ride as thefront man of Van Halen, Sammy's powerful andunforgettable voice has set the tone for some ofthe greatest rock anthems ever written—songslike "I Can't Drive 55," "Right Now," and "WhyCan't This Be Love."

In Red, Sammy tells the outrageous story ofhis tear through rock 'n' roll. From the decadenceof being one of the world's biggest rock stars tothe unfiltered story of being forced out of VanHalen, Sammy's account spares no one, leastof all himself. His is a tale of a true rock 'n'roller—someone who's spent decades bringingthe party with him wherever he goes but alwaysheadin' back to Cabo for más tequila.

Sammy Hagar—legendary lead singer of Van Halen, founder of the Cabo Wabo Tequila brand, and one of rock musics most notoriously successful performers—tells his unforgettable story in this one-of-a-kind autobiography of a life at the top of the charts. From his decade-long journey alongside Eddie Van Halen to his raucous solo career with Chickenfoot and everything in between—the drugs, groupies, and excesses of fame, the outrageous stadium tours, and the thrill of musical innovation—Hagar reveals all in this treasure trove of rock-and-roll war stories. Red is a life-changing look at one of musics biggest talents—an essential read for music fans and anyone dreaming of becoming rocks next number one star.

About the Author

Sammy Hagar was a founding member of the rock band Montrose before becoming a hugely successful solo artist. In 1985, he joined Van Halen, which led to a string of consecutive number one albums and hit singles that stretched over ten years. After the Van Halen brothers unceremoniously fired him, he went on to establish himself as a solo artist all over again, while also founding Cabo Wabo tequila. He splits his time between California, Hawaii, and Mexico.
