Life Long Fan

August 09, 2010 by jrpowers

My first Sammy Hagar concert was in 1983!!! It was at the Sacramento State Fair and was by far the greatest live rock n roll show I have ever seen. Summer, Stevie Ray Vaugnn and Y&T were the opening acts, man now that's butter!!
Sammy came out and pitched a fit about how much tickets were($19.50) and promised we'd all get our money's worth. Let me tell you, he didn't disappoint. Sammy walked on stage at 9:00 and didn't leave the stage until midnight!!! Three solid hours of in your face, no holds barred rock. Zepplen, The Who, and Hendrix were all on the menue that night and a fourteen year old kid became a lifetime Sammy Hagar fan.
Twenty seven years and many lifestyle changes later one thing has remained constant! Sammy Hagar will ALWAYS give you your money's worth and I'm still a fan.

God Bless and Thank You Sammy,

John R. Powers
