Sammy Hagar is known as the lead singer of the band Van Halen. In 1985, Sammy Hagar took over as lead singer for Van Halen, replacing David Lee Roth, and remained in the band until 1996.
Even after that, he had a successful solo career of his own. He is widely regarded as a music legend.
Recently, Sammy discussed a new special with Fox News and explained his dream and success. A collaboration between Fox Nation and TMZ, “Sammy Hagar’s Paradise” offers a behind-the-scenes look at Hagar’s 75th birthday celebration, while also highlighting his achievements as both a musician and entrepreneur.
He has over 50 years of stage presence and on the occasion of his 75th birthday, he reflected on some of his dreams. He said,
“I’ve had so many dreams that I never dreamt come true. Of course, all I really dreamt about was someday being a rock star, rich, a famous guy, and being able to take care of my mother and my family well, have a beautiful home, and beautiful cars. That was it. A gold record, maybe on the wall.”
That’s when he went in deep and talked about human nature, how one wants more and more after one achievement. Hagar said, success just keeps coming and it keeps on coming. He also added that it is very contagious. Hagar says he is addicted to it.
“Success is contagious. It’s what I’m addicted to. I make jokes about it all the time. It’s like, ‘How much money do you need?’ No, I don’t need any money. No, I’m all good. I just need more of that. I need to have an idea, see it come true, and see another dream come true. And I live my dreams.”
Sammy kept on going. He said when a dream comes true, his philosophy is to keep that dream, live that dream, and dream another one.
He told that it’s important to not throw the dream to the side and say ‘Oh, what’s next?’ He finally concluded with, “No, you just keep adding it to your life. And what’s there not to be happy about? Everybody says, ‘Why are you always so happy?’ Because I’m happy. I’m very happy with what has happened.”
