For over 30 years, Sammy Hagar has been a fixture in heavy metal music. Beginning with his successful solo career where he churned out hits such as "I Can't Drive 55" and stretching into his decade long stint as the frontman for Van Halen, Hagar has sold millions of albums all over the world. Taking over for Van Halen's original singer David Lee Roth in 1985, Hagar kept that monumentally successful band going stronger than ever during their biggest years before being unceremoniously fired in 1996. A decade later, he returned triumphant, leading the band on a reunion tour that was as much a box office smash as a personal catastrophe. Now he tells the outrageous and unbelievable stories of his rise through rock music, detailing how his voice became instantly recognizable all over the world.
