It’s been about 5 months since Sammy Hagar and publishers Harper Collins announced that the Red Rocker had signed on to write his autobiography.
Time for an update on "Red: My Uncensored Life as a Rocker," due next year.
"The book's basically done, but the editors want me to go deeper in a couple of areas," Hagar tells the Marin Independent Journal. "They said, 'There were problems in Van Halen? Well, what kind of problems?' The way I've written this book is that I'm just telling the stories, from childhood until now. It's humorous in places, there are sad things, inspirational things."
Sammy says the final product won’t pull any punches.
"It's sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll, tequila and success and cars and money and fame and fortune," he says. "I've gone over the top. It really is crazy. I was shocked when I read my own book. It floored me. I said, 'Wow, what a guy.' I've had the most complete friggin' life on the planet. I can imagine people thinking this guy couldn't have done all that in one lifetime. But I've been a busy boy."
