"Three Lock Box" celebrates 34 years!

"Three Lock Box" came out today 34 years ago in 1982!! Three Lock Box was my second album at Geffen Records and produced by Keith Olsen who also produced my first million seller "Standing Hampton".

The title was taken completely wrong and I almost had some difficulties with the big store chains thinking it was a sexual thing.

But a "Three Lock Box" stands for mind, body, and spirit -- it was also a very valuable buried treasure usually belonging to royalty. When traveling at sea, Kings and Queens would have their valuables in a chest that took three keys to open.

Happy Thanksgiving Redheads!

Best Thanksgiving day wishes to all Redheads! The Hagar's had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with the Hetfelds and Mike Kroeger of Nickelback and their families on Maui. Tonight I'm filming my AXS TV show with Mick Fleetwood, Hawaiian bluesman Willi K and Steven Tyler. A little blues jam at Fleetwood's On Front Street, Mick's restaurant in Lahaina Maui.

Halloween with Adam Levine

Went to Adam's Halloween party last night. His guitar player and bass player dressed up like Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones. Adam was John Bonham and played drums. They all got up and did a Led Zeppelin set with Linda Perry singing lead...I came out for "Black Dog" - it was awesome!! About a 1,000 people or more in an old bar ballroom with a low ceiling, just like it was for early Zep. 

Santo was flowing the VIP area. Music didn't start until midnight so it was a late night with some amazing costumes! Happy Halloween!

- Sammy

Foo Fighters/Dave Grohl Allstar Charity Gig

After four of the greatest nights in Cabo Wabo history (!!!), Jason and I flew out of Cabo Saturday afternoon Into LA to meet up with the Foo Fighters charity event. Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, KISS's Paul Stanley, Perry Farrell, Stewart Copeland, Lisa Loeb and some others joined the Foos for a crazy intimate (& at full volume, may I add) setting of a couple hundred donors for Dave Groll's annual fundraiser for improvements at the local schools.
