Here’s the Backstage with Bryan’ online interview segment with Chickenfoot and fellow guest Julianne Moore and Dr. Brady Barr.
In the 11-page story, Sammy discusses the history of his longtime love of tequila, including the opening of his famed Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and the success of Cabo Wabo tequila. Hagar goes into depth about his hands-on role in building the brand.
Hagar also discloses that he recently sold his last 20% of the company to Gruppo Campari in order to concentrate on other projects, including making his own high-end rum. But even without a financial stake he is still involved as the public face of the liquor.
“They really want to keep the heart and soul of the product and the person that made it still part of it,” Hagar said. They’re smart to do that, they’re good people and they know what they’re doing. So I’m completely happy with everything. I just want to have freedom to have more creativity.”
Hagar also talks about his car and wine collection, the breakup of Van Halen and Chickenfoot and his new airport-based restaurant chain called Sammy’s Beach Bar & Grill, in which all of his profits go to his Hagar Family Foundation to help poor families and families with terminally ill children.
