    Default Vegas Rocks! Magazine Awards rock with Sammy Hagar, David Coverdale at the Joint

    Vegas Rocks! Magazine Awards rock with Sammy Hagar, David Coverdale at the Joint
    Monday, Aug. 27, 2012 | 10:04 a.m.

    It was a night when the music roared -- and soared. For the rockers, it was one nonstop party on and off the red carpet and onstage and off. For the fans and the audience, it was a total blast from start to finish.

    Rock and roll publishing queen Sally Steele, dressed in rocking red, masterminded her third-annual Vegas Rocks! Magazine Awards to celebrate the eighth anniversary of her music magazine.

    TV and radio personality and “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest and sports mogul millionaire Mark Cuban joined forces to launch their cable TV network AXS and broadcast the awards live Sunday night from the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel. (AXS was formerly HD TV.)

    The night belonged to Sammy Hagar (Van Halen, Chicken Foot), who picked up the Voice of Rock Award, and David Coverdale (Whitesnake), who received the Lifetime Achievement in Rock and Roll Award. Another major highlight was the appearance of Michael Schenker (Scorpions, UFO), who flew over from England to receive his Rock Guitar Legend Award.



    Many other awards were handed out in between onstage jam sessions. The highlight, of course, was the finale when every star in the house went onstage in what had to be a multimillion-dollar lineup, with Sammy leading the parade and even crowd surfing before the show ended.

    Our Editor at Large John Katsilometes was there for all of the excitement, and we’ll post his report later today. Our thanks to the contributing photographers for their amazing coverage and videographer Richard Corey for his red carpet and closing number videos.

    “It was a triumphant night,” Sally summed up. “Fantastic for rock and great for Las Vegas fans. Now to start on next year!”

    Coverdale said on his website that Montrose supported Deep Purple on their 1974 tour of the States on some dates. I did not know that. Must have been their trip through Northern California.

    Allright, good to see the legendary MICHEAL SCHENKER get some recognition for once.

    I've actually gained alot of respect for Coverdale over the years. he fell into the hairband thing in 89 but aside from that the guy has been kicking ass for years (and I don't even think 89's slip of the tongue is that bad it's just nowhere near the 87 release). Saw them last tour and they were great.

    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Dang, Sammy... It's called sleep paralysis. It's not aliens.

    I swear, I've experienced it once in my life, and the way Sammy describes it, it's right on the money... sleep paralysis.

    Truth. Along with VH and Rhoads, he was taking classic rock to the next level - that apex of rock guitar before it would self-implode uder the excesses of shred and was still band/song oriented. I still wear out the 2nd MSG album. Great playing, good songs and the best drum sound next to Bonham.
