Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 224 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. For over 30 years, Sammy Hagar has been a fixture in heavy metal music. Beginning with his successful solo career where he churned out hits such as I Can t Drive 55 and stretching into his decade long stint as the frontman for Van Halen, Hagar has sold millions of albums all over the world. Taking over for Van Halen s original singer David Lee Roth in 1985, Hagar kept that monumentally successful band going stronger than ever during their biggest years before being unceremoniously fired in 1996. A decade later, he returned triumphant, leading the band on a reunion tour that was as much a box office smash as a personal catastrophe. Now he tells the outrageous and unbelievable stories of his rise through rock music, detailing how his voice became instantly recognizable all over the world. Lavishing readers with behind the scenes stories from Van Halen, one of the biggest-selling rock groups in history, Hagar tells of the worldwide stadium tours, the private jets, and the parties, and of course the trappings that came with fame and success. From the decadence of one of the world s biggest rock acts at its peak to the struggles of egos to the making of some of rock s biggest anthems, Hagar s account spares no one, least of all himself. In this book, his fans will meet a remarkably human man behind the bleached hair and scraggly beard, up close and personal, a man who has stayed true to his working class values throughout his rocket ship ride to the top of the world of rock music.
