and also this special Fast-paced Redhead Q&A where i answer a bunch of questions from you!
Hanging with my country pals Toby Keith and Kenny Chesney at the CMT Artists of the Year show- congratulations to you both for being selected as artists of the year and it was an honor to present to Kenny! If you missed it last night, you can catch it again on CMT Monday night or watch the full show online here.
I had a great time cooking with my brother Bob this year and hope you were able to be with family & friends as well. Wishing Redheads everywhere a Happy Thanksgiving from the whole Hagar family. Peace!
What a weekend in New Orleans with Emeril and his foundation raising money for kids!
Couldn't be prouder -- for the 7th year in a row, the Birthday Bash weekend with me and Emeril brought in the highest bidders for the Carnival du Vin auction! We've raised more than $1 million with this package already. Watch out for next year's auction - we're going to reinvent it! Emeril's foundation does incredible work and it's always an honor and a blast to be part of it.
Had a great time the other night celebrating Bob Weir's 65th bday down at the Sweetwater with friends and family. Happy birthday, Bob!
Bob and I will also be stopping by the Sweetwater again tonight for a special benefit for the Coming Home Project! Tickets might still be available and I hear it will be webcast on Yahoo Music, too. Info at http://www.tristudios.com/events/mooncussers-concert-benefit-coming-home...
Man, this is hand's down the best birthday bash yet! Hangin' at the beach with my family and friends, then my buddy Emeril cooked us an amazing dinner and we all headed to the Cabo Wabo where Kenny Chesney brought the whole band down and tore it up for 3 hours! The fans were so off the hook I just had to hit the stage and jam on a couple songs with Kenny -- and we even got Emeril on stage with us to sing back up on "I Can't Drive 55".
This past weekend opening up the Island (the new Sammy's Rockin' Island Bar & Grill) in Roseville was off the hook! There's nothing like getting the key to a city and having a day named after you anywhere in the world is fantastic! I love the charm and soul of the old part of downtown and being part of it. Plus, the restaurant looks and sounds phenomenal! We played a set to a thousand Redheads in the bar and out on the streets and it's the best sounding of all my live music venues. I love the way people are crowded around the stage and stairway - it really feels close and personal.
Wow, what a great party in Vegas last night! Here it is 10am and I'm still laying in bed this morning - I almost bit off more than I could chew flying in from Orlando, filming two TV shows and partying with 250 Redheads. Luckily we had the rum to wash it down!
Hi Redheads, Saturday I'm flying down to Vegas for the follow-up to our Norcal Sammy's Beach Bar Rum Bash - this time in Vegas! But that's not all - the folks over at AXS Live (used to be HDNet) are going to join me when the plane lands and broadcast LIVE as I make my way from the hotel to the airport and down to Club Vinyl @ The Hard Rock for the rum bash - come check it out -- I'll mix you all a drink live on TV!
Just back from Tahoe and a great benefit for Larry Ruvo's "Keep Memory Alive" program for fighting Alzheimer's - had a blast cooking with Emeril and his crew and jamming with the Atlantic City Sammy's Beach Bar & Grill house band Lefty Lucy. Also in the house were other supporters Robin Wiliams, Ray Romano and others.
