Jump To Sammy Hagar's Stats
Rock is in his blood, roll is in his soul and Sammy Hagar can hang with the best of them. Singing rock and strumming his guitar since the late 60s, this music Hall of Famer worked with some of the Alums and opened a string of successful eateries, all the while screaming his way to a net worth of $260,387,060 - befitting a Rock King.
The native Californian has staying-power, forming his fist band called The Fabulous Castilles in 1967, then moving on to a few others including Montrose, before releasing his first solo hit called I canít drive 55. He then made magic with the famous Van Halen, and they say when itís nice you gotta do it twice. Hagar did just that with two stints with Van Halen, from 1985-96 and again in 2003-05.
While going solo, the Red Rocker released his 1970s album Nine on a Ten Scale with the single Red, with some success. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007, taking his place alongside some other greats like the King himself, Elvis Presley and John Lennon among others. But unlike those greats, he is still here making high octane music with the band Chickenfoot.
Singing isnít this Rockerís only claim to fame. He has added entrepreneur to his accomplishments with the opening of a chain of restaurants and tequila brands called Cabo Wabo. He then sold 80 percent of his tequila to one of the leading alcohol companies Gruppo Campari, for a cool $80 million in 2007 while retaining ties to the brand. Hagar also has a successful mountain bike store called Sausalito Cyclery opened since the 1990s.
While making bank, Hagar remembers to give back and donates all of the net proceeds from two of his restaurants in Las Vegas and St. Louis to charity.
