SAMMY HAGAR Completes Nine Songs For New WABORITAS Album

According to, Sammy Hagar revealed in a recent interview with Steve Dahl of the Chicago radio station WCKG that he has completed work on nine new songs with his band THE WABORITAS for a new album, entitled "Livin' It Up", tentatively due next year. Sammy will tour next year in support of the album, with VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony in tow. Hagar said the show would open with a WABORITAS set before moving on to VAN HALEN material.

On the topic of VAN HALEN, Sammy stated that he has not spoken to guitarist Eddie Van Halen since the end of the 2004 tour, but suggested that if Eddie called, he would gladly talk to him.

With VAN HALEN now on hiatus, Hagar resumed touring this year as a solo act. His "The Tequila Made Me Do It" tour, during which he played with both MONTROSE and THE WABORITAS, took place in August.

Hagar and VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony continue to play together in another group, LOS TRES GUZANOS.
