Sammy Hagar's High Tide Beach Party Canceled

Sammy Hagar's High Tide Beach Party & Car Show, which was set to take place later this month in Huntington Beach, Ca, has been canceled after a state agency denied the event a permit.

The official website for the festival shared, "The event's website shared the following statement, "Due to being denied the necessry [sic] permit submitted on 12-16-18 from California State Parks the High Tide Party & Car Show scheduled for September 28 & 29, has been canceled.

"Unfortunately, there is no possibility to relocate the events. All ticket holders will automatically receive a refund through official ticketing outlets, Front Gate Tickets and GroupOn."

According to a local here, the state agency claimed that they had not received all of the necessary fees, including ones for law enforcement, medical and fire, and a week out from the event, they felt they had no choice but to not approve the permit.

Hagar said via his publicist, "I was surprised and very disappointed to learn of the cancellation. More than anything I'm just sorry to inconvenience the fans."

David Lee Roth Says Residency Will Not Be Van Halen

David Lee Roth says that fans should not expect him to sound like Van Halen at his upcoming Las Vegas residency shows, that his new band will be different.

Roth plans to perform songs from the legendary band at the shows but he said in a recent interview that he plans for something that fans have not heard from Van Halen live.

He said, "We do not sound like Van Halen live. You have not heard this. Van Halen live is lead guitar, bass, drums, sing. Here, we bring it the way a record brings it.

"To do that requires two or three guitars. We have five people hollerin'. It's big rock sound. It's not 'Just A Gigolo'. It's not brass band. That was a quickie vacation. This is not a tribute band.

"I wrote these songs. I structured these songs. We bring the respect and dignity to what we are doing the same way that the Lincoln Center brings to the Beethoven Festival with the latest Philharmonic. It's a new orchestra, and a whole new sound."

Roth will be launching his residency at the House Of Blues Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on January 8th of next year.

Singled Out: Jimmy Carpenter's Love It So Much

Jimmy Carpenter just released his brand new album "Soul Doctor" and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the song "Love it So Much". Here is the story:

Soul Doctor contains 7 original songs, 2 of which were co-written with Guy Hale. The title track is a great song, but since I didn't write the lyrics, I decided to talk about "Love It So Much." It's a New Orleans groove, (no coincidence there), complete with the Bender Brass horn section (myself, Mark Earley on bari sax and Doug Woolverton on trumpet) and a brass band arrangement.

As a lifelong touring musician, I have always found it difficult to maintain a semi-normal life and tour simultaneously. I have lots of friends that manage to do it, but it has somehow eluded me. This sets up a little conflict inside me, because I've always wanted both. Love it So Much is my somewhat humorous but honest expression of that internal battle..

The chorus::

I'd turn and walk away
Go home and home I'd stay
Wake up in my own bed every day
If I just didn't love it so much

And that says it all. As much as I love having a normal life, I truly do love touring, and I think most of us feel that way. It's not like a big negative thing at all, it's just trying to make 2 very different parts of life fit together.

Planes and trains and automobiles
Headlights cut through the night
I've seen the world through a bug-smeared windshield
I'm here to tell ya that's been alright

Traveling the world is one of the greatest things about this musician's life. The music has taken me to many places, although often just passing through. Everywhere is different, the food, the language, the booze...but what I've realized is that deep down, most people are about 95% the same. They want to work, raise their kids in a safe place, have a roof over their heads, food on the table...that's true of nearly everyone in the world. The differences are what makes it cool: what they eat, drink, listen to. I've always had a strong curiosity about those things and truly enjoy immersing myself in them. I like trying food that nobody else will (I always think, hey, they've been eating this for centuries, how bad can it be??), checking out the local bitter liqueur, grappa, beer, and so forth. Every culture has their own take on those, but they're remarkably similar to some degree. Again, those differences make it interesting. And all of it is tied together by making music for people. It is an honor and a privilege to be able to do that, and something for which I am deeply grateful.

Life in a suitcase somehow suits me
Never seen no reason to complain..
But I'm still thinking bout putting down roots
Standing here in baggage claim

And here's the other side. After years of living alone and being mostly on the road, I was in Las Vegas at the first Bender, playing with Walter Wolfman Washington. I had just sat in with Popa Chubby, and I went to the merch table with him. There was this beautiful girl with a big smile and a big, happy vibe around her. I was totally smitten, followed her around the rest of the weekend, and soon found myself visiting Vegas regularly. After a year or so, I sold everything in New Orleans and moved to Carrie Stowers' home, with her two wonderful kids and Millie the pitbull. These days I make school lunches, dinners, drive them around, and enjoy these wonderful people on a daily basis. I work for the Bender and have a great Las Vegas band. And I'm still touring, just not quite as much. Life is good, I'm doing all I can to keep it that way, and find a balance between the road and home. Not easy, but no doubt worth every effort.

Well I met this girl and she stole my heart
I really want to try to settle down
But there's a little voice inside my head
Says Jimmy get your ass outta town!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
