Quotes of Sammy Hagar Bio, Age, Net Worth, Salary, Divorce, Wife, Kids, Height

# Quote
1 It's more luck than anything, unless you're a craftsman like Hall & Oates in their day. But even before you discover that formula, what it is is luck. And it's not always the greatest recording. It's not always the greatest take. The Stones have had some pretty raunchy hits that, if you pick apart, no one's really playing fantastically. It's really about the magic and the luck of hitting upon it. The Troggs's Wild Thing - come on! That's one of the worst recordings ever.
2 I want to play with people I enjoy and like. I'm going to surround myself with friends and have fun. Rock n' roll stinks without fun. You might as well have a real job.
