Exciting news has hit the streets of Hollywood as rocker Sammy Hagar is set to be immortalized with a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The official announcement, posted on the Walk of Fame’s Instagram account, revealed that the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will bestow the honor upon Hagar with the unveiling of the 2,779th star on Tuesday, April 30th, at 11:30 am PT. The star will find its home at 6212 Hollywood Boulevard, commemorating Hagar’s illustrious career in the category of Recording.

In a poignant statement, Hagar reflected on the driving force behind his relentless pursuit of success:

“It’s the fuel that propels me forward. That hunger to never experience poverty again drove me to work tirelessly. Even now, I can tap into that place and channel the determination it instilled in me. But nowadays, it’s about giving back and inspiring young talents to realize that hard work opens doors.”

As the ceremony approaches, notable figures including musician John Mayer and Hagar’s longtime manager Tom Consolo are slated to join host Guy Fieri in celebrating the Red Rocker’s achievements. This accolade comes in the wake of Hagar’s previous induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside Van Halen in 2007, a milestone he reminisced about during a candid interview with WKYC:

“It was a special moment. Although it would have been ideal if the entire Van Halen crew had come together. Dave [Lee Roth] and I were ready to join forces and perform, but you know how it goes with those guys [chuckles]. I guess the truth is starting to come to light now.”

During the same conversation, Hagar expressed his advocacy for the induction of Montrose into the Hall of Fame, citing the band’s influence on acts like Van Halen, Mötley Crüe, and Def Leppard. Despite his efforts, Montrose’s induction remains pending, a testament to their enduring impact on the rock landscape.
