Sammy Hagar In The Studio For Classic Albums Anniversaries

Sammy Hagar

A new episode of the syndicated radio show In The Studio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands centers on Red Rocker Sammy Hagar on the 35th anniversary of his album "Three Lock Box" and the 30th anniversary of the Van Halen era solo album "I Never Said Goodbye". The show sent over the following details:

After years of struggle as the downcard rock palooka who could take a punch and never go down, Sammy Hagar answered the bell in the Eighties and came out swinging. In 1982 Hagar scored a technical knockout with his first mainstream hit "Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy" from his seventh solo album Three Lock Box. By 1987, coming off the hugely successful VOA album with the highway anthem "I Can't Drive 55", the newly installed Van Halen lead singer would score his highest charting solo album ever I Never Said Goodbye with the powerful # 1 rock ballad "Give to Live". Hagar shares with IN THE STUDIO producer and host Redbeard how he managed to satisfy his solo artist commitments while joining the biggest band in the land.

Sammy Hagar, "Everybody remembers the I Never Said Goodbye album that I made with Eddie (Van Halen) playing bass, right after 5150. Royalties off Van Halen records went to Geffen. I sold 5 million records for the guy (David Geffen) on three records. He wasn't about to let one of his biggest artists just go…not anyone would do that." Stream the episode here.
