Sammy Hagar Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2016

Sammy Hagar was born on October 13, 1947 in Salinas, California. He was interested in music from his youth, but most likely he wasn’t planning to become one of the richest people in the world and make huge capital as a businessman in the USA. Mostly people know Samuel Roy “Sammy” Hagar as a former second lead singer in the famous hard rock and heavy metal band “Van Halen” formed in California in 1972. Today Sammy Hagar is working as a singer, musician, guitarist, songwriter, lyricist, composer and even businessperson. He is known as one of the richer celebrities of our time, with capital of $120 million accumulated through his musician career and restaurant business.

Sammy Hagar Net Worth $120 Million

Sammy was interested in the southern California music scene, so his first attempts to become a singer were in the band called Fabulous Castilles, but the future famous rock star started his serious musical career in 1973, playing with the band called “Montrose”. After that, he was seen in many musical events in the USA, but still his most striking appearance was with the rock band “Van Halen”.

Sammy Hagar wasn’t an original member of “Van Halen” and joined the band later, in 1985 ,after David Lee Roth was fired and the other musicians needed a new singer and songwriter. As a new member he provided many innovations to the sound and that’s why he is considered as one of the most controversial band members of all time. Because of such a new singing technique and therefore huge influence, fans even started to call band “Van Hagar”., but then he received complaints because of changing music styles too much. Although this segment of his career gave Sammy ilustriouness, later he started to argue with the rest of the band and finally was fired.

However, Sammy wasn’t planning to leave music world, but besides his career as a musician, Sammy Hagar also started the new tequila brand Cabo Wabo and the chain of Cabo Wabo restaurants. Sammy decided to sell his Cabo Wabo tequila company and in 2009, 80% of the company brought him $80 million. Later in 2009 he sold the other 20%, and profited by another $15 million. So if we would look at his general capital we can make the conclusion that the band Van Halen gave Sammy an opportunity to be well-known in the world, but his main amount of money was made thanks to Cabo Wabo.

Nowadays Sammy Hagar lives in the United States of America with his second wife Kari (Karte) Hagar and two daughters. He also has two sons from a previous marriage with Betsy Berardi. He divorced from Betty in 1994 after 26 years of marriage. Now he continues his musical career by releasing his own solo albums and working with the band Chickenfoot. However, today many people still say that Sammy was much more talented as a successful businessman than as a musician. At least one thing is known for certain – a huge part of his capital was made thanks to his restaurant chain, while “Van Halen” just made him famous.

Looks like we don't have Sammy Hagar salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 Co-owner, with Tyler Florence, of El Paseo restaurant in Mill Valley, California.
2 His longtime friend, Nancy Wilson, and Geoff Bywater were married at his restaurant, El Paseo, on April 28, 2012.
3 Although the Van Halen albums recorded with David Lee Roth sold more copies, all four albums recorded with Hagar hit #1 on the Billboard album chart.
4 Was the lead singer of two rock bands named after the guitarist's last name: Montrose (Ronnie Montrose) and Van Halen (Edward Van Halen and his brother Alex Van Halen).
5 Sammy Hagar's "Cabo Wabo Tequila" was a sponsor of English driver 'Darren Manning''s #14 A.J. Foyt ABC Racing INDY car. Sammy Hagar and Gene Simmons are both INDY Car Series racing fans and sponsors.
6 One of his best known solo songs: I Can't Drive 55.
7 Used to be a boxer before becoming a rock musician
8 Has homes in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Maui, Hawaii; and in Northern California near San Francisco.
9 Owns a cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico named Cabo Wabo. Also manufactured tequila under the same name until the brand was sold to Campari/Skyy in 2007.
10 Is working on his autobiography with a deal signed with HarperCollins imprint ItBooks for it to be released in 2011.
11 Toured in 2002 with David Lee Roth, in a trek dubbed the Sans Halen Tour. Each played a ninety-minute show, with Hagar focusing mostly on his solo material (though he did about half a dozen Van Halen songs as well), and Roth doing a whole set of Van Halen songs from the time he fronted the band. A coin toss before the tour determined who would open and who would close on the first date of the tour. They flip-flopped back and forth after that.
12 Has two children with his former wife Betsy (Aaron & Andrew) and two with current wife Kari (Kama & Samantha).
13 Member of the rock band, Van Halen, from 1985 through 1996, and in 2004.

#Quote
1 It's more luck than anything, unless you're a craftsman like Hall & Oates in their day. But even before you discover that formula, what it is is luck. And it's not always the greatest recording. It's not always the greatest take. The Stones have had some pretty raunchy hits that, if you pick apart, no one's really playing fantastically. It's really about the magic and the luck of hitting upon it. The Troggs's Wild Thing - come on! That's one of the worst recordings ever.
2 I want to play with people I enjoy and like. I'm going to surround myself with friends and have fun. Rock n' roll stinks without fun. You might as well have a real job.
