As a long time Sammy Hagar fan (Redhead), I am so set aside by the comments indicated in this article that I must respond. For the author to indicate that Sammy is re-directly his Hall of Fame rock n roll career towards country is absolutely crazy. To indicate this based on the fact that Sammy is touring with Kenny Chesney doesn�t make you look all that knowledgeable on your subject. If you were, you would know these facts.
Sammy and Kenny are good friends since Kenny played with him, for three hours, at the Cabo Wabo for Sammys Birthday Bash in 2005. Second, Sammy does not have a set tour this year since he has been touring his rock n rock for the past three years straight. However, he still wants to deliver what he loves the most for his fans. His music.Third, he is not playing country at these concerts but rather his world famous rock. Fourth, if you go to his website (www.redrocker.com) more than once, you would notice that the cover picture changes with each log in. And as far as Sammys Nascar appearances having anything to do with his music direction is beyond me. If you think that by re producing the VAN HALEN song �Cabo Wabo� is a �stones throw away from country� you are sadly mistaken. Oh and hey, I�m surprised that you don�t think Sammy may be going hip hop since he plays with those folks as well!
I am not saying that country music is a bad thing. In fact, country has some of the finest artists and best looking fe-male performers out there. In many whys, if you listen to some country releases most carry a rock n roll back as some rock carries a country back which is why you are probably confused with Sammys �Livin it Up� CD.
By the way, I�m going to let all my highly successful friends know that they need to sell their GMC truck and stop drinking Budweiser before they are considered �middle America�. What ever that is!
In closing, understand and get the facts about your subject before you write an article. In case you didn�t get the clue from the above, Sammy Hagar is, and always will be, a rocker, he is an artist of a diverse music understanding and interest.
P.S. Michael Anthony was not with Sammy since he is in the studio recording. FACT!
