As it should be, Sammy Hagar is getting his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Hagar’s star is the 2,779th and you can be on hand when Sammy accepts (Tuesday, April 30 at 11:30 a.m. PT at 6212 Hollywood Boulevard)! Sammy’s star is in the category of Recording. Obviously. Speakers joining emcee Guy Fieri are John Mayer and Sammy’s longtime manager, Tom Consolo.

Hagar’s been at it for five decades, becoming one of music’s most dynamic and prolific frontmen. Stats guy says: 25 platinum albums. 50 million sold worldwide. Grammy Award winner. Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee. You know him from Montrose, the frontman of Van Halen, Chickenfoot and The Circle. And, massive hits, like “I Can’t Drive 55”, “Right Now” and “Why Can’t This Be Love”. He’s also a #1 New York Times best-selling author. Entrepreneur.

The kid’s massive.

Sammy launched his flagship Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in 1990. And for decades, he’s used the place for his annual birthday bash. Legendary parties. There are now Cabo Wabo Cantinas in Las Vegas and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, plus four Sammy’s Beach Bar and Grill restaurants, which are located in the major airports of Maui, Honolulu, Cleveland and Las Vegas. 

Oh, let’s not forget about Sammy’s time on the boobtube. He’s a mentor on season 11 of “The Voice”, he’s done five seasons of “Rock & Roll Road Trip With Sammy Hagar”. And on radio, you can hear Sammy hosting “Sammy Hagar’s Top Rock Countdown”, a weekly syndicated show on 90+ U.S. stations.

Sammy’s an obvious choice for a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. Which Van Halen do you prefer? Roth? Hagar?
