SAMMY HAGAR YOU ARE PRECIOUS PART II
Sammy Hagar is a goofy dude, but for the open-hearted, there’s still much about The Red Rocker to admire. As was discussed on Tuesday, he’s successful at everything, a fact that debunks the myth of Hagar’s brainlessness; also, the guy is a good sport who understands what happens when a proud drunk publicly swears to interaction with space aliens. It’s gonna cause some disbelief and ribbing.
But he’s cool with it and will even participate in his own mocking, like he did Tuesday night when starring in a dramatic interpretation on Jimmy Kimmel Live! of his late-night extraterrestrial encounter (above). This good humor, too, makes Hagar seem sharp, as though he learned a lesson from his former bandmate Eddie Van Halen’s toothless paranoia and lack of perspective. Shit, if Eddie went on Kimmel, he’d reenact a midnight meeting with a Wolfgang-shaped lamp.
