Here's your chance to be in a music video!

Hey Redheads! Here's your opportunity to be part of a Sammy Hagar Music video! Some of you may have heard Sammy's new take on the Jimmy Buffet classic 'Margaritaville' at a few of our recent shows. Well, we decided to make a rocking video to go along with debut of the single and we are starting to collect footage to go along with this new recording. Sammy wants to give it a good time/beach/laid back feel and what better footage to use than Cabo footage? And you of course know the best part about Cabo... the Birthday Bash at the Cabo Wabo Cantina of course!

A True Music Lover - Carter (1946 - 2011)


Last week I lost a manager, a friend, a cowriter, & a producer. But most of all Carter was a fan of fans – a true Redhead. He cowrote the song "Red" with me and was the kind of guy who would have been in that line sleeping on the sidewalk. He was a true music lover.

I miss him.

Carter (1946 - 2011)

Carter, the legendary A&R man, producer, songwriter, manager, and lifelong fighter for songs with proper bridges (and, where possible, proper nouns) died on May 10 in Palm Springs. He was 65.

Born John S. Carter in East St. Louis, Illinois, he grew up moving around the West and Midwest, the only child of an oilman and an indefatigable Arthur Godfrey fan.

What a ride!

I thought my right hand was going to fall off. I signed that many books in the last two weeks. Literally thousands and thousands. Some of you were there in NYC, St Louis, LA... I love my Redheads. So great that so many of you came out to get the book signed. Not so great that so many eBay sellers were so rude and pushy and made it so hard for the real fans who were respecting each other and following the rules. Everywhere at all the bookstores there were awkward incidents that were so embarrassing to me. If you are someone who had a bad experience I am truly sorry.
