"Summer of Sammy: Reflections of a Sammy Hagar Fan" is a tribute book by a Michigan business man who has become a total "redhead." He conversion starts with his first Sammy concert in 2002 (Sam and Dave Tour), and is confirmed when attending Hagar concerts through 2003, as well as several VAN HALEN shows during 2004.
The author has experienced these concerts at different levels; from many rows back to front stage, on stage, and in the ring, as well as meet-and-greets and private sound-checks. His enthusiasm for the legendary Red Rocker is expressed in his personalized license plate, screen savers, phone ringers, and his den which he has turned into a Sammy Shrine.
The author recognizes Sammy as an artist who loves, appreciates, and works hard for his fans. Sammy's music is powerful, uplifting, and a refreshing option to the often angry and whiney victim-hood expressed by younger rockers.
