Review by exfed
A solid biography of a rocker, but not a great one. In many ways, its a story that's been told time and again. Humble beginnings, the lucky break, conflict within the band leading to breakup, and of course -- plenty of booze, drugs and sex. What's different about Sammy Hagar is that he's been a good business man (sprinkler systems, mountain bikes, tequila, and nightclub/restaurants) and (if you believe him) he kept his drug use somewhat toned down. His self aggrandizement got a little old, but hey -- its his story to tell.
