VIDEO: Sammy Hagar launches Lite Roast web series

Sammy Hagar is sharing a behind the scenes look at the inspiration for and making of his latest album, “Lite Roast.”

The Red Rocker has isused the first two episodes in a three-part series documenting the project, which sees the singer teamed with Waboritas guitarist Vic Johnson to deliver stripped-down versions of tunes from his career.

“Lite Roast” was inspired by the rehearsals for Sammy’s appearance at the Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit show in May, which raised funds for the Pediatric Cancer Program at the University Of California, San Francisco UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital.

Hagar recently performed a belated birthday bash concert at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.

The October 18 evening featured Hagar & The Circle (Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Johnson) playing a setlist spanning four decades – including hits from Montrose, Hagar’s solo career, Van Halen and beyond – as well as an encore by Chickenfoot.

Hagar, who turned 67 on October 13, was scheduled to perform his annual birthday shows at his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on October 7, 9, 11 and 13.

The rocker was forced to move the event following recent damage in Cabo caused by Hurricane Odile.
