Sammy Hagar Excited About Hometown Honor and Street Naming
"Nothing is as gratifying as being honored in your home town," writes Sammy. "For me it's right up there with the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. Having a street named after ya (Hagar Way)-- come on!!!"
"Fontana has changed so much since 1970 when I left," he continues. "If you would have blindfolded me, brought me there and showed me around I would not have known where I was. For real. 14k population then and 200k today-- damn!
"When I was just a 6-year-old kid, I would watch the parade on Sierra Ave in front of Crawford Drug Store where my sister Bobbi worked and famous LA newscaster George Putnam was the Grand Marshal on a Palamino horse! I certainly never thought that would be me someday but hey, look what can happen! All in all it made my family members very proud, and I must say me too." More including video from the event.
