    I think he kinda gave it to himself. He loves the color red and therefore is the red rocker.

    title track to his second solo album post-montrose, but probably because he likes the color... is his hair color originally considered a redhead? because that would be a logical origin, too...

    Red
    I've read it all, it's black and white
    The spectrum made a shade I like.
    The crimson rays are ruby bright
    Technicolor light.
    Red! I want red, there's no substitute for red.
    Red! Paint it red, green ain't mean compared to red.
    You don't know what it does to me,
    My crimson intensity
    I'm haunted by the mystery,
    The mystey of red.
    Red knocks 'em dead,
    Some like it hot, I like it read.
    Red is my lover, got it covered
    Red is my number, sure as a coma
    Red is my drummer, and I hear red thunder
    Move over brother,
    Red's a motherfu...(cker)
    (Red! Red!)
    Thats' what I said...
    (Red! Red!)
    Come on to bed
    (Red! Red!)
    Gimme' that expensive spread..

    Runaround... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around...

    Solo (1976 - 1984)
    Hagar commenced a solo recording and touring career to increasing success. After moderate success on Capitol Records, with such albums as Nine on a Ten Scale and hits such as Red, Hagar made some personnel changes, including enlisting long time friend and former Justice Brothers bandmate David Lauser as his drummer. With these changes, and a change to Geffen Records, Hagar enjoyed hits such as "Heavy Metal", "Three Lock Box", and perhaps his best-known song "I Can't Drive 55", a gripe against the federally-imposed speed limit of 55 miles per hour (88 km/h) on all U.S. highways. (The limit was increased on certain roads in 1987, and the law repealed in 1995; the song was updated for NASCAR broadcasts on NBC in 2001 to 65, and is used in NHL Rivals 2004.) During this time, his frequent appearance in his red attire in videos and in concert would lead up to his given trademark nickname of "The Red Rocker".

    Not too many words rhyme with purple.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!
