Sammy Hagar, a.k.a. The Red Rocker, a.k.a the second of three lead singers for Van Halen, released his memoir, Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock, last Tuesday (March 15, 2011), and Rolling Stone has exclusive excerpts of the autobiography for those of you who haven’t picked up a copy yet.
Rolling Stone describes the memoir as “20 years of madness and mayhem with Van Halen,” and after perusing the 20+ blurbs about drunkenness, chain-smoking, suitcase-living, and a series of highs and lows regarding the band’s dynamics, I can see why.
Check it out over at Rolling Stone: Exclusive Excerpt: Surviving Eddie.
And, if you want to learn more about the book, how to order it, and read some interviews Sammy gave to Rolling Stone and MusicRadar.com, head on over to his official website, Red Rocker.
