Rock Book Short Reviews Number One: Sammy Hagar

Sammy: more than pleased with himself.

Sammy Hagar’s Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock has received a lot of praise for its unflinching honesty, and Hagar does leave no tale untold in detail - no matter how bad it makes him or his fellow band mates appear. But while Hagar’s climb from poverty to rock star/tequila magnate is inspirational to some degree, Hagar is so relentlessly impressed by his own self that by the end of the book you want to join guitarists like the late Ronnie Montrose and Eddie Van Halen and just fire Hagar. Enough!
