SAMMY HAGAR “Three Lock Box” – 1982 Album Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!
SAMMY HAGAR – The Red Rocker. Rock ‘N Roll Legend. Sammy Hagar. Back in the day, any smart dude knew enough to have a Sammy Hagar cassette or two in the car; especially Three Lock Box. Why is that Stone? Well… chicks really dug Sammy Hagar, back then, of course! Ah, those were the days. Oops… daze. Come to think of it, these same gals today (must) seem to think Sammy Hagar is still a Rockin’ cool dude. My wife (basically) melts apart at the seams whenever Sammy is on television or his Rock ‘N Roll is cranking! I don’t mind. It’s Sammy Hagar, the dude epitomizes Rock ‘N Roll cool. Metal be thy name.
I can remember this album being released, like it was yesterday. An old high school buddy of mine bought Three Lock Box on vinyl right away. We listened to this album quite a bit too. I was a sophomore in high school back in ’82, the year of this album’s release. I eventually snagged Three Lock Box on cassette and I actually still own it! It’s in a water-proof container somewhere in my basement. My prehistoric cassette collection has survived over the decades; regardless of natural disasters and downsizing!
Admittedly, I still get psyched-out-of-my-Metal-mind from the tracks: Three Lock Box, Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy and Remember The Heroes. All three of those songs were HUGE radio hits, back when FM meant something. Since his early days with Montrose, through his Van Hagar glory years and up to the present day, there consistently has been an it-factor that Sammy Hagar has glowing from his Rock ‘N Roll persona, voice and guitar. Whatever that “it” is, none of us can walk into Walmart to buy it… that’s for certain!
My Best Metal Buddy, Scott Coverdale, had suggested to me a long while ago to pick Three Lock Box as Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day. When Scott came up with this idea, I felt it was a no-brainer! I just don’t know what took me so long to write about it! Nevertheless, I have written about Sammy Hagar’s Three Lock Box and it is forever secured as Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day! Amen and… Whoa.
Sammy Hagar (pictured above) today! Sammy is posing with his Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum Red Head. This cool rum of Sammy’s debuted on June 8th, 2013, at The Palazzo in Las Vegas. Whoa.
