Poundcake 3/19/16

Poundcake Ok gang. Here we go. I happened across this weeks article inspiration by accident flipping through the channels on tv. I came across The Big Interview with Dan Rather. This particular one was his sit down with Sammy Hagar. One idol who I have yet had the opportunity to meet. But after watching this interview, it just reiterated the fact of just how awesome the man is. I had the opportunity to meet Alex VH at a showcase that was being done. The man took a full bottle of Heineken by his teeth, held it upside down in his mouth by his teeth and chugged the whole bottle. While brother Eddie, I had the chance to meet only in passing at an after party for a movie premier that we had attended. He was already pretty well lit, and there was more snow and powder flying at the party than there was in all of a Colorado mountaintop. But from everyone that I know who has come across Sammy, the man is amazing and would give the shirt off his back for anyone. At 68, the man still rocks it harder and better than anyone who has come up in the past 15 years, hands double down! The man has more talent, compassion, and professionalism in his 30+year career than most of the younger “artists” of today will have for their entire lives. There are fewer and fewer bands out there that can say their careers have spanned for 20+ years, or even 10 years or more. For Sammy Hagar to still be rocking more now than in the 80’s and 90’s. He tore it up as a rocker, and now as a business professional. He goes to prove that you can still rock with the 9-5, but you still have to follow your passion. And to that, I continue to ponder and think about what the future can hold. Damn you Obamacare, dwindling 401K, and stinkin household bills. So in true 5150 fashion: Baby dry your eyes, save all the tears you’ve cried. Ohh that’s what dreams are made of. Oh baby we belong in a world that must be strong. Ohh that’s what dreams are made of.
