In a recent interview posted by Blabbermouth, Sammy Hagar, who has become a successful entrepreneur, says he would never go into non-music business with bandmate, Michael Anthony.
The 75-year-old rocker said, “it could possibly ruin our relationship, (as well as) what we do as entertainers, as artists and recording artists.” The two are bandmates in Van Halen and The Circle.
Hagar, who founded the Cabo Wabo Tequila brand and restaurant chain, as well as Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum, explained: “As much as I love family members, and I say the only people I can trust in the world a hundred percent is family, the business world can get ugly. There’s a power game to business that some people thrive on. And I hate it.”
When it comes down to it, Hagar says they have such a great relationship on stage he wouldn’t want to risk it. Referring to their music, he said, “We’re in business already.”
