Face Down In Cabo… Kissing The Ground

Cabo - The Cabo Wabo Cantina

The wife and I recently returned from a vacation to Cabo San Lucas to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary.  We had an absolutely wonderful time and took a SLEW of pictures (Which will be posted for sure…) One place that I simply HAD to visit while I was in Cabo was the Cabo Wabo Cantina.  I’m a huge fan of Van Halen and the Cantina is the brain child of former VH front man Sammy … Continue reading

Sammy Hagar Gets Uncensored In RED

RED: My Uncensored Life In Rock by Sammy Hagar (2011)

I’ll start this off by saying Van Halen is probably my favorite band of all time.  I’ll follow that up by saying that I’m one of the rare few that thinks Van Halen was a FAR superior band with Sammy Hagar in it than when David Lee Roth was the front man.  With that housekeeping out of the way… No pun intended, but this book rocks. RED: My Uncensored Life In Rock is just that… uncensored.  … Continue reading
