    well i did a search on google.com on last names and this is what it said on hagar
    "hagar hebrew, a stranger one fearing"
    that is what it had for that spelling there were other spellings but this is the way we know it is spelled.
    van halen shall return. what you think is nothing might be something after all.

    I remember watching a local cooking show a few years ago, "Monterey's Cookin' Pisto Style" with local chef and restauranteur John Pisto and Sammy was the special guest - cookin' with the chef and pushing his swill.

    Anyway, this guy John Pisto is Italiano and he has this hard-on about his ancestry and whatnot -I noticed many of his special guests are italian as well.

    So Sammy starts talking about his grandfather who came to this country back in the day from Italy and had a restaurant back east somewhere and Sammy learned to make ravioli's by hand blah, blah, blah.

    And I thought the guy was Jewish - Who knew.

    Must've been his maternal grandfather..
    Hagarelli? Nah.

    Proud to be a Dago, I am.

    And my grandparents had papers, thanks.

    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    DLR: It was like a stand off in a Chuck Norris movie. We each had the laser dot on everybody's forehead waiting for the other guy to blink. Except for Wolfie, he had a Super Soaker ...

    Sam is Jewish. Jewish people happen to live in many European countries.

    As far as his personal beliefs, I believe that he is a very open minded spirtual person that does not limit himself to the Torah (Old Testament).

    Man! We better get a new VH CD to sink our teeth into ASAP. Look at what we are talking about..the religious background of a former lead singer!!!

    Sammy is NOT Jewish. Where are you guys getting that from, because of his last name? Um, people change their names. My last name is in no way Jewish, it was changed by my grandfather who was in the entertainment field and during that time Hollywood was completely bigotted against Jews. So just because a name sounds Jewish, doesn't mean it is, and Sam definitely is not Jewish. Also, my mom went to high school with Sam's older sister and she said the Hagars definitely were not Jewish.

    Like I said, he might not be a practicing Jew, but his heritage is Jewish. I will look for confirmation as soon as I can, but I remember reading about it somewhere (years ago).

    I won't even mention the name Samuel Hagar as having anything to do with it.

    His name has nothing to do with it, I am telling you he is not Jewish. He may have a Jew in his background somewhere, but believe me, my mom grew up in a small town with , they knew EVERYONE who was a Jew. But go see if you can find any info, I would be amazed.

    My name is Brett Norton, what religion am I? Name means very little.

    I just went nuts looking for this information. I must be crazy. I found this funny jewish celebritie website that has a search engine called jewhoo, and I couldn't stop laughing. Sammy Hagar was not found, but neither was Diamond Dave.

    I'll see what I can find, Brett. It's kind of cool how your mom used to know the Hagar's. Does she remember a crazy little blonde kid with boxing gloves and a small flask of tequila??
