For nearly four decades, Sammy Hagar has been one of rock music's most prolific artists. Whether in his solo career or as frontman of supergroup Van Halen, the "Red Rocker" is the voice behind classics such as "Right Now" and "Why Can't This Be Love?" The Grammy-winning artist and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee also has a more savory side.

Hagar is a successful entrepreneur who owns several restaurant chains, including Cabo Wabo Cantina, Sammy's Beach Bar and Grill, and Sammy's Rockin' Island Bar & Grill. His Cabo Wabo premium tequila has won numerous awards, and his Sammy's Beach Bar Rum is receiving praise from industry insiders. Hagar's passion for food and fine spirits began at a young age, fueled by a grandfather who was a chef who cooked for U.S. presidents. In his own words, Hagar describes his love for food and drink as a "lifestyle" and as much a part of his life as music. The rocker recently chatted with us about sex, food, booze, and rock 'n' roll.More »
