    Default How Much Would You Say Sammy Hagar Is Worth?

    How much would you say Sammy Hagar made in his solo career and in Van Halen (plus the reunion) prior to his tequila sale? If I am not mistaken, wasn't there an equal split with Van Halen? As well - what did he make with Cabo Wabo that pissed off the VH brothers?

    I am having a debate about this with some people and they think that same only made like 4 million max with his solo career prior to Van Halen and 20 million tops with Van Halen. This seems low to me, when you consider an equal split of platinum albums, song royalities to huge hits, merchandise and the tours.

    I realize that Sammy probably lost a ton of money with his divorce, but when it is all said and done now - is 200 to 250 million what with all his businesses and music career a fair estimate? I know the celebrity net worth site has him at 150 million I believe, but again that seems low after all these years. People I am talking to say that Paul Stanley for example has more money than Sammy. Gene I can see, but I find it hard to believe with Paul.

    What say you?

    In conclusion, Sammy Hagar may not be everyone's favorite Van Halen lead singer but he's definitely the richest. In fact, as of March 2013, Sammy's $120 million net worth far outweighs every other current and former Van Halen member. Eddie comes in at #2 with $85 million, Alex is #3 with $75 million, Michael Anthony is #4 with $60 million and David Lee Roth is last with a net worth of $40 million.

    Those sites are never accurate and 120 million still seems low.

    Who cares.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    One Billion dollars.

    No, I think he's wealthy. He's not a billionaire ready to go on Shark Tank, but he's done well.

    Hey, Sam should be a guest shark. That would be fun.

    If you read his book, he figured out how to manage money early on. He started his own travel agency so he saved money on booking tours; his agency even booked travel for other bands. He bought real estate. Also, as a solo artist, he wasn't splitting royalties four ways. Sam was also savvy enough to go from Capital to Geffen to make more money.

    In DLR's book, after VH I and the following tour, they owed WB a million dollars. WB fucked VH in the early years.

    Sam has fuck you money. Does the exact number matter?
