    Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar reveals his friendship with Food Network chef Emeril

    According to the international press, Sammy Hagar is in Van Halen.

    I posted this purely to highlight the difference in approach to the media between Sammy Hagar and Roth/Van Halen.

    Again the media savvy Hagar has got one up on Roth/Van Halen.

    Apart from die hard VH fans, the rest of the public will read the following story and accept that Sammy Hagar is in Van Halen.





    'He cooks for me': Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar reveals his friendship with Food Network chef Emeril Lagasse

    • Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar and TV chef Emeril Lagasse have been friends for decades
    • Lagasse even cooked at Hagar's wedding more than twenty years ago - before the chef was even on the Food Network
    • The two men have a shared passion for food and music


    By ASSOCIATED PRESS

    One is a rock star and the other a rock star chef, but Sammy Hagar and Emeril Lagasse have a shared passion for food and music.
    'He loves music as much as I love cooking,' Hagar said before giving a weekend concert at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, where he teamed up with Lagasse for a night of classic guitar tunes and rum.
    The men have been friends for years, often even vacationing together. Lagasse even cooked at Hagar's wedding more than twenty years ago - before the chef was even on the Food Network.

    'Sometimes he cooks for me in the house,' Hagar said. 'I have an acoustic guitar and play and goof off while he's cooking.

    'And I will jump up and say, 'Emeril, let me cook one dish.' And I'll bang something out.'

    Hagar, known as the 'Red Rocker' and lead singer of the band Van Halen, sold his part of the Cabo Wabo Tequila company (he still owns the Cabo Wabo restaurants and has the logo tattooed on his left arm) not long ago and turned his attention to rum.

    Sammy's Beach Bar Rum is made in Hawaii, where Hagar has a home.

    'The only white rum you can drink straight,' he said after taking a sip of a mojito made with his rum. 'You can do shots like tequila. Put it over rocks. It's so pure.'

    Hagar grew up around food — his grandfather was a 'real' Italian chef - and he often cooks at home. But not for a lot of people.

    'That's stress,' he said, adding that his backup plan was never to be a chef.

    He has a handful of restaurants and bars and a best-selling autobiography, not to mention the rum business.

    But it was clear while hanging with Hagar and sipping rum drinks that this funny curly-haired rocker is always thinking of his next project.

    He said he's working on a coffee table book that will include cocktails and food pairings, naturally.

    'I would just like to be the real most interesting man in the world,' he joked. 'I want to do so many things. And I want to do them good.'

    So Dave spends the week relaunching The Roth Show and appearing at an award ceremony with The Beach Boys.

    But who gets the headlines in a publications outside of the music press? Sammy Hagar!

    The story was submitted by Associated Press, so I guess it will pop up again in other publications.

    Sammy runs rings around the Van Halen camp and I find it so frustrating to watch.

    Especially as Dave used to reign supreme as the king of all media and quotable headlines.

    The only aspect about this that I find interesting is that he is being referred to as the singer for Van Halen. I wonder if his publicist wanted it that way? I wonder if this is a new tact to re-establish his role as THE singer for Van Halen?

    I would bet that his publicist engineered the 'Van Halen singer' title and it's possibly an attempt to re-establish the Van Hagar legacy.

    Interesting that the timing comes just as VHLinks are debating whether Van Halen need a new singer and a new producer on the new record.

    And a couple of sleeper profiles on Roth Army are turning on Dave with threads like: 'DLR - Do you think he should still perform? Should VH move on?' and 'the obvious choice to replace roth'.

    Roth Army turning on Dave, VHLinks showing their true colors, and also the site DavidLeeRothFans.com shutting down; it all seems a little too co-ordinated.
