Three Lock Box

Three Lock Box
CD 1982 Solo

Liner Notes

Three Lock Box is a Sammy Hagar solo album, which features appearances by Loverboy's Mike Reno, Journey's Jonathan Cain, and Mr. Mister's Richard Page. His only Top 20 solo hit, "Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy", reached #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1983. The title track refers not to sex, as commonly mistaken, but to a much more philosophical bent. "It's got to do with deep sea diving, when you look for a buried treasure. The ultimate treasure would be a sunken treasure with three locks on it, because that means it was the most valuable stuff that the queen had on that ship. And you need three different guys with keys to open it, that way no one could steal it. So a 'Three Lock Box' to me is within yourself. If you unlock the treasure of your physical, and your mental and your spiritual potential - those three in balance - you are a real human being and almost godly.

Of course I like "Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy", "I Don't Need Love" and the title track, but I really like "Remember the Heroes".

What a great album. I bought it years ago and listened to it over and over while I changed the waterpump in my first car. Now, I listen to it everytime I have a big project. I painted a room in my house recently and was jamming! " l've been locked up....in the room!"

The whole album rocks! But a favorite...Would have to be "In The Room" followed by "Never Give Up" then "Rise of the Animal".

Choosing a favorite of ANY Red song is like trying to choose which is your favorite child. Or like lays potato chips cant stop with one. Ask me to do something easy like put a spike through my head or burn one of my guitars. As Scotty would say "I cant do it captain, I just cant."

My first Sammy album. Got this when I was 13 -- I had heard songs from Standing Hampton on a station out of upstate NY, which the nearest rock station I could get from my tiny town in PA. I've been a fan ever since.

Obviously, the hits were great from this album, "Three Lock Box" and "Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy" but some of the others that weren't on the radio were fantastic, like Rise of the Animal and Remember the Heroes with Mike Reno from Loverboy!

Funny how "I Don't Need Love" ended up on UnBoxed as one of his greatest hits but "Three Lock Box" wasn't on the Essential Red Collection. That reminds me, when Sammy and VH split I wrote a letter to VH telling them how stupid they were and how Sammy was the best thing that ever happened to them, etc., and I guess they forwarded it to Sammy's people at Geffen because I received a promo shot for UnBoxed, signed!
