Sammy Hagar Plans New Album for 2013
Hagar hasn’t released an album on his own since ‘Cosmic Universal Fashion’ in 2008, and according to comments he made during a recent interview with Las Vegas Magazine, it seems like he’s starting to get the itch again. Celebrating the three-year anniversary of his rather awkwardly named Cabo Wabo Cantina in Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort, he talked about looking forward to “a big rum and tequila party” while reminding us that, hard-partying image aside, he’s still one of the more consistently prolific rock artists of his generation.
“I’m in the studio right now with my band, The Wabos, and we’re rehearsing and writing songs,” Hagar revealed when asked about his plans for 2013. “We’re putting something out this year and we’ll probably go out and do 25-30 shows.”
Of course, Hagar being Hagar, music isn’t all he’s up to — aside from launching his new Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum, he’d also like to expand his cantina empire (“We’re opening another Cabo Wabo in Los Angeles at Hollywood and Vine”) as well as follow up his recent memoir with “a lifestyle cookbook with some of my chef friends.”
