Excellent, very honest memoir on Hagar's life. I couldn't stop listening to this book, great performance by the narrator.
A MUST listen for any fan of Sammy. Great stories and honest confessions from the Red Rocker. Shepherd does a good narration but wish Sammy could've done it instead. My ONLY complaint.
Sammy's story is more than a story about a musician. It's a story about an entrepreneur, a serial entrepreneur. I knew about his success with his tequila, but didn't know about the other businesses that he built. Throw in the behind the scenes dirt on Van Halen, and there's quite a story to tell.
Fascinating well put auto biography. I felt that you could envision the atmosphere of Sammy's life. I am so glad that I read this. I always have been a big fan of Hagar's music, now even more so! This book was done with great finesse and detailed explanations of who, when, where and why....SWEET.
I don't have the print version
The brutal honesty. I love the line that was something like, "I loved my wife so I was always careful" (when having sex with other women). I think its safe to say that there will be no Van Halen reunion anytime soon. Sammy shares the good, the bad, and the ugly. It also explains a lot about Van Halen. I remember that Eddie was just weird. Wouldn't sit down. The reason he did that is Eddie is weird. I guess its hard to stay centered when everyone is telling you that you're God.
I haven't heard Scott, but he was awesome. I kept thinking, "This sure sounds like Sammy.."
Absolutely. Great stories. Great insights, from a guy who has been doing this a long time. Montrose is one of my all time favorite albums. It stands the test of time.
God bless Sammy.
A pretty good story about an awesome rock and roller. There are not many surprises in this book but it is a chronological telling of the events of his life.
It takes a while to get used to the narrator's style of delivery, but once you get used to it, you almost think it's Sammy talking.
