Sammy Hagar’s Hometown Names a Street After Him [VIDEO]

He returned to his hometown of Fontana, California in honor of the cities 100th anniversary celebration, and after leading the parade, Sammy Hagar was given a lasting momento by the city – his very own street.

“Hagar Way” will now officially be added to Google Maps as it stands side by side with other notable street names, such as “Main” and “Oak”.  For his part, Sammy was touched by saying “Something about in your hometown having a street named after you, that warms my heart. This is awesome. This is one of the favorite things that has been done for me in my whole career.”

Given the nickname, “The Red Rocker”, Hagar scored music fame in the 70s with hard rockin’ “Montrose”, then a solo career, highlighted by the ’84 smasher “I Can’t Drive 55″.  Further down the road he replaced David Lee Roth as the lead singer of Van Halen from ’85 to ’96, and from ’03 to ’05, Hagar returned to the band for a brief two year reunion.

He’s got a new LP scheduled for September, and rumor has it, you’ll find some cover tunes in the mix.
