On March 15, ex-Van Halen front-man and lead singer of Chickenfoot, rocker Sammy Hagar will release his autobiography, titled “Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock,” via ITBooks and HarperCollins Publishers.
And while the book claims an uncensored look at his life as a rock-star, perhaps it’s his five-and-a-half-minute video on YouTube that holds the key to Hagar’s character.
“There are literally thousands of children who are better off, who are getting a better education, whose tummies are full, who can thank Sammy Hagar,” Stan Curtis, Blessings in a Backpack founder, says in the video’s opening.
The video, ‘Sammy Hagar: The Red Rocker Gives Back’, essentially covers all Hagar’s charity work and explores highlights some of his work, including his yearly cooking adventures with Emeril Lagasse in efforts to raise money to support children’s programs in New Orleans.
Dr. Glenn Matola of the Oak Hill School for Autism also speaks of Hagar’s generosity: “We are a school that serves children who have autism and neurodevelopment disorders from around the Bay area. His kindness, his generosity was really a springboard for us in being able to move to a new campus.”
The five-and-a-half-minute video look at some of the charity work that is near and dear to Sammy Hagar can be viewed here.
