Perhaps it’s no coincidence that this legendary rock god, who back in the day saved Van Halen from imploding under the weight of its own intraband ego, is now spreading that sort of big-haired peace and love throughout the country. It’s also probably no coincidence that he’s best buds with Guy Fieri, who does his own brand of road trippin’ elsewhere on the TV dial. And like Fieri, Hagar’s unbridled enthusiasm for all things rock cuts through the noise and makes us want to go see a show—or at least get drunk with the band. That’s what happens when you’re treated to interviews and jam sessions with the likes of Tommy Lee, Bob Weir, Alice Cooper, Nancy Wilson and more. This is a guy who understands his own legacy, as well as the frivolity that should always permeate rock & roll but so often gets lost in pretension. This is one fun road trip, and you don’t want to get left behind.
