I wanted to write about the first time I met Sammy. It was a different way of meeting a rockstar for sure. A friend of mine went to San Francisco back in the early 90's and knew that the Bammies "Bay Area Music Awards" were that day at the Civic Auditorium. We didn't have tickets but we thought it would be cool to go to the Civic and see what was going on. We got there around 3 or 4:00. We were at the backstage entrance just watching what was going on. We had a clever idea on how to sneak in backstage. Our idea worked and we were backstage. We were in there early.
Been a long time Hagar fan since around 1978. First time seeing Sammy was at the Stockton Civic in 1980. Man, what a show. Red jumpsuit and all. I remember he had around three guitar players with him, didn't understand that. The Electric Church was awesome that night.
