When he burst on the rock scene in 1974 as the lead vocalist of Montrose, he was billed as Sam Hagar. Today, not unlike Bono, Sting and Pink, one only needs to say "Sammy," and everyone knows who we're talking about.
And, he turns 70 today.
I get that Jagger, Dylan and McCartney are over 70...but, they don't stomp on terra firma. Sammy still does...and still hits all the notes.
We saw him a few weeks ago at the new Irving Music Factory and couldn't have rocked harder.
To celebrate the Red Rocker's 70th on this Music Friday, we offer up 7 to build your Weekend Playlist:
Happy 70th, Sam. You rock.
