The ‘Red Rocker’ Turns 67 Today.
Man, I hope to look as good as this man does at 67. He acts like he's 25 and still sounds like it too. On top of that makes some of the best damn tequila in the world. Maybe that's what keeps him young. Cheers Sammy! Happy Birthday!
Its intro, a distorted electric slide guitar sound which closely emulates that of a revving motorcycle, became the defining component of the song.
It provided Hagar with his only top 20 solo hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at number 13 in 1983. The song reached number 19 in Canada.
The song reached number 31 on the Billboard magazine mainstream rock charts when it was released as a single in 1982
Not anymore, now we can go 80!
Sammy's says this has to do with deep sea diving...really. :)
