    Default Cool new Billboard article on Sammy: At 60, Hagar still ready to Rock

    Although he was laid up recovering on the day after his 60th anniversary bash on Oct. 13 at his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Mexico, Sammy Hagar's advanced age has not slowed the Red Rocker in the slightest. In fact, he says, it's making him work that much harder.

    "There's so much I want to do," Hagar tells Billboard.com, "and there's nothing I feel holding me back -- nothing with my age or my physical health or my strength or my enthusiasm, my talent. I'm having more fun that I've ever had, I gotta tell ya."

    Hagar, who's currently on the road with former Van Halen bandmate Michael Anthony as his special guest, has a number of projects in the works. First among them is a new album, the follow-up to last year's "Livin' It Up." Hagar says he's about "halfway through" with it and plans to finish recording in December and January for an expected second quarter of 2008 release.

    "It's quirky music," Hagar says. "It's a little bit more worldbeat and kinda harder rock, more like going back to (1981's) 'Standing Hampton' or (1984's) 'VOA' or something. Those records were very '80s, with a little bit of influence of Peter Gabriel and people like that. Now I think it's more Peter Gabriel-influenced with a hard rock edge on it."

    Hagar will support the album with a summer festival tour, for which he plans an "anthology" tour that will feature the original Montrose lineup, his original Sammy Hagar Band, his current group, the Wabos, and a "superstar guitarist" that will join him and Anthony to play Van Halen material.


    "I have some people in mind," Hagar reports, "but I haven't made the call yet." Hagar adds there will also be "a big, all-star jam at the end" of the show.

    Hagar, who still retains a 20 percent ownership in his Cabo Wabo tequila brand, has also launched Cabo Wabo Radio, an Internet station that will offer varying levels of free and subscription services -- with an evening program broadcast live from Cabo Wabo.

    One thing Hagar won't be doing, however, is Chickenfoot, the "supergroup" he talked about forming with Anthony and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. The trio has jammed before, including at Hagar's birthday bashes, but for now, he says, the project isn't practical.

    "I just can't do it," Hagar says. "There's no room in my life for another band, so that's not gonna happen."

    I wonder who this "superstar guitarist" is. The anthology tour sounds like a good idea, but I'm surprised Kiss has not thought of this yet.

    Sounds great! I'm gonna miss him on his pass by here in November so here's to hoping that this kick ass summer tour comes around. Sam just keeps getting better with age.

    Sounds like a great idea with the anthology!!

    Apparently Sammy can be in more than one band at a time and he's allowing Michael to be in more than one band at a time.

    My guess for his "Superstar guitarist"....

    Satch!

    And the whole tour package sounds in-fucking-credible. Paging Jesse Harms!!!

    I think the guitarist will either be Satriani or the guy from Journey (Castronovo?). The pick would be Vai. Eat'em and Smile!

    Vai would be intriguing indeed for a Sammy show given the history of the performer.

    And the guy you're thinking of (Deen Castronovo) is Journey's current drummer. Neal Schon is their guitarist and has performed many many time with Sam. Not to say that his showing up again is out of the question but Sam seems to be hinting that this will be somone new to the Sam Camp.

    Are Satch and Sammy friends?

    Great interview. I'd love to hear more from Three Lock Box and VOA (my faves). Any of the old stuff actually.

    As for the guitarist, I'm thinking Satch. That'd be kewl. Kewler yet w/b Schon tho.

    I'm so glad Sammy's keeping on with things.

    Im leaning to Satch, they have jammed before when sam had planet us going.
    Or Cantrell?

    Either way, no disrespect to Vic, but Id love to see sam with MA, a guy like satch and someone like v paul, c smith or sorum to rock it up a bit. lets face it the pedigree of sam and MA alone would guarrantee some serious shit.

    Great to see sam maybe leave the livin it up/beach trip and get back to classic straight up rock, the guy is too good to do otherwise.

    I don't care who the superstar is... I'm going to this show.

    I'd love to see a reformed Montrose... still one of the best albums ever recorded. All the other stuff is gravy.

    And the hell with Kiss (though I'm still a fan and always will be), I hope Van Halen is thinking of an anthology tour too.

    Ah damn it, I'd love to see this. I just love Sammy's enthusiasm, he just keeps going. Wish I had the funds to travel.

    i thought the superstar guitarist thread ruled out Satriani as he's on his own tour this summer...i also said in a previous thread that Vai would be amazing...that's my vote!

    Is Billboard still a printed magazine in addition to being online?
