    Default CD trouble for Sammy...

    According to a fan going on the Hagar cruise he received a e-mail saying they will not be getting a copy of Sammy's new cd as promised. Apparently Sam is having trouble with the record label that was to release it. That explains the comment in the Billboard interview that he was still shopping the cd to different labels. So it may not be out in time for the start of the tour. Found info at Sammyhagar.net.

    True. But those going will get the CD sent to them when ready, fully autographed.

    Sammy said, something to the effect of, if I recall, that the album is done. When he made the plans for the cruise, he made the plans for it to be out and be distributed to the cruise patrons. Apparently the record label he was going for is or was filing bankruptcy or something, so he decided not to 'give it to them'. He said he 'did that with Ten Thirteen and Not For Sale' and he wasn't doing it again....my guess is he just didnt want a record company taking a record, publishing it, and then not promoting it. Call him a lot of things, but don't ever call him stupid. He's a pretty savvy businessman, if nothing else.

    Sam should start his own rec label. Hell, he could easily lay 20 mil on the table and get the ball rolling.

    I remember at a 2003 St. Louis show, he said "Being a record boss is tough", and that "It didn't work" when he was talking about the label... Or something to that effect.

    I took that as the record label went under or never got going.

    Stay independent.

    Create a label. You're the only artist on the label. With Sam's reputation and track record, he could get some help with distribution. Sell the CD via your website and every "DOTCOM" that sells music.

    Collective Soul has done this with their latest album "Youth". Last I had heard it has sold over 300K.....not bad for an idenpendent.

    Roger Clyne and the Peacmakers, who opened for Sam a few years ago do the same thing. It's Roger's label, he sells it via his website and thru some Best Buys in select stores. He's had 2 #1 Internet Sales with his releases.

    He plays two shows in Mexico every year attracting 15,000 people @ $30 a head = $450,000

    He plays 200 shows a years....150 people a show @ $12 = 360,000

    Sells 3K albums a years @ $8 = $24,000

    Sells his own tequila called "Mexican Moonshine $50 a bottle x 1000 bottles = $50,000

    Merchandise - T-shirts and stuff = $75,000 easily

    Royalties from King of the Hill and Cingular commercials = $12,000

    A struggling independent artist from AZ = $971,000 in gross sales.


    Can Sammy Hagar release his own album? ABSOLUTELY

    My guess is that Roger Clyne may be a part of some of Sam's shows this summer....we shall se.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    His good friend Toby Keith has a new record label called .. SHOW DOG RECORDS. I bet Toby would be glad to help seeing as sammy said his new cd was country rock.
