Love the movie GTOBTT! Would really like the version in Mill Valley to be the one that is used for release...it is not as long as shown in Cabo and not as short as Lake Arrowhead and Lake Tahoe showings.

Sammy...just do it...release this Movie to your fans!

I think it will be like your book, you will be surprised on how many people will want to buy it!

But again...not the Lake Arrowhead or Lake Tahoe version!

Bring this move to your fans!

Hello, Sammy!

Big fan from South America here but living in Mexico. You say that you don't know that you would sell a thousand copies of the documentary, but maybe selling isn't the point. Have you thought about the "Official Red YouTube Channel" or something like that? You can put interviews of yourself, videos and live material, but you could also upload (maybe in chunks) the whole documentary and let your webmasters make deals on publicity. We all know you don't need the money, but you could take it and give it to a favorite charity or one of those cool things you do. This way, you win, we win, everybody wins. I'd absolutely love to be able to watch this documentary because I've never had the pleasure of seeing you live AND I love interviews with you because you tend to be a pretty interesting interviewee (not to mention writer - LOVE the book.).

Take care and all the best,

Sergio Mendoza Hochmann

Way To Go, Sammy,
Our accomplishments are only measured by our kids, cuz in the end, all we have is our family. All three of your girls, especially your wife, are proof of that and I just wanted to let you know how nice all of this is.
If ya ever wanna get on your Bad Motor Scooter -n- ride, I'd love to take you around NW Montana, so just let me know.
Remember green ain't mean, compared to red -
Thanks for the memories - CHUCK

Hi Sammy,
I was very fortuneate to see the premier in Cabo. I loved every second of it, along with everyone else around me. Just couldn't hear it too well with all the cheers around...I can't wait for it to be availible so I can watch and hear the entire film. I sure hope that you will consider releasing the uncut version for sale to you fans! That would be totally great! I'm sorta a newbie for your Cabo B-Day Bash, only making it down since 2003, and missing 2 years along the way, due to things beyond my control....but as long as you contineue your bash, from here on in...I will NEVER miss another!!!! I love the way you give your all, to all your fans, all the time, even when you are so delerious with fever and jumping off the stage into the crowd!
No wonder you are so well loved and admired by everyone who ever has had the oppertunity to experiance you! Thank You for all you do!
Peace and Love to you and your family!
Cindy

Congradualations to Sammy and all . We were blessed to see the movie at his movie premier and fundraiser in his home town of Mill Valley during the Holidays. You always speak from the Heart, and I have always said that "you care about your fans as much as they care about you" That what makes you so down to earth and real, and an inspriation to other artist. I dig how you are so forgiving and kind. Great Movie Sammy. for those of us who could not make it to Cabo. You brought Cabo to us.
See you tonight in Tahoe.

I was lucky enough to see the movie in Toronto during Canadian Music week...Sammy was on hand to introduce the screening. It was fantastic...a real treat. Any Redhead will love it!! Hopefully the dvd is out soon.

Laurie: Okay, is there anything beyond the anniversary that triggered you to want to do this movie?

Hagar: The documentary I’ve been working on for twenty-one years. There’s old footage in there that’ll blow your mind. In this documentary we have Van Halen opening the Cabo Wabo, sitting downtown with an acoustic guitar with no one around. It’s in there. I’ve been filming this thing from day one. In life nowadays; when you see a documentary on Elvis Presley, you see the same damn footage over and over. Wouldn’t you love to see some new footage? But you can’t because it’s too late now. I was determined to document everything I do. It’s fantastic, and it really tells the story. It’s got a lot of hi-def interviews with me and other people that explain how it happened. This birthday bash thing, it’s the most fantastic thing I’ve ever created, its way beyond any of my other ventures. For this birthday bash, all the hardcore fans from around the world would start getting in line and sleeping on the street a couple days before the shows just so they’d get in, because it only holds about eight hundred people and there’s about two thousand people trying to get in per night. So they know now that if the line-up is down to that telephone pole, fans go, “Aw shit!” and then they just park it there for the next night. Once I started seeing this I started talking to the fans, and it’s the story of how a small, sleepy Mexican fishing village got turned into the biggest party there is! All the locals are like, “What the fuck?!” but everybody makes money off it. The furniture store around the corner brings furniture out and rents it to the guys in line. They’ll sell these guys pillows, we bring them tacos, we set up porta-potties for them, and it’s turned into the coolest thing. I love this movie, I’ve spent a quarter of a million dollars myself on this movie and I haven’t found one place to sell it. I might sell it on the internet, but what are you going to sell? A thousand copies? This is a labor of love; this is a gift back to my fans and the people. I showed a longer version to fans in Cabo for my birthday last year, I had a two-hour unedited version, it was a really rough. They stood up and cheered like the Rocky Horror show. Toby Keith is playing, Ted Nugent’s playing, Chad Smith, Michael Anthony, myself. It’s fantastic.
