Sammy Hagar is sharing a video preview of The Big Interview with Dan Rather, a special set to air on AXS TV on February 23.
Hagar hooks up with Rather to discuss his life and career, including the building of his $100 million dollar Cabo Wabo Tequila empire.
“I went to Mexico and bought a place in Cabo San Lucas in 1983,” says Hagar. “When I was down there, the tequila was different than what I was drinkin’ in America. [I said] ‘Man, this was the best tequila I’ve ever had in my life. Could you make it for me, guys?’ He tells my interpreter, ‘You bring me the bottles, and I’ll fill ’em up for you.’ Like that. That simple. And that’s how Cabo Wabo started. It was so unbelievably organic.”
During the session, Hagar takes Rather for a ride his his $1.3million dollar LaFerrari, the fastest street-legal car in the world.
The Red Rocker also performs an acoustic rendition of a brand new song, "Inner Child."
The Big Interview with Dan Rather featuring Sammy Hagar will be broadcast on AXS TV on Tuesday, February 23 at 8pm EST.
