Sammy Hagar Autographs Guitar to Benefit Guitars Not Guns

Sammy and the Wabos performed their annual Cabo Wabo Cinco De Mayo show at Harrahs South Shore Room in Lake Tahoe on May 6 - 7, 2011. This beautiful Yamaha acoustic electric guitar and a Strat pick guard were both signed by the Red Rocker prior to the May 7 show.
Thanks to Barbara Gorin --GNG's VP of Fundraising & PR--for her perseverance in connecting with Sammy's management for these autographs.  Of course, Thank you Sammy, Carter and Paul!  A special thank you to Robert Brown for donating this pristine Yamaha FG -411- CE guitar!

The autographed guitar and the autographed Strat pick guard are
to be auctioned seperately on Ebay in July - the date to be determined.

I attended the Saturday night show and it was awesome.  Sammy, along with The Wabos - Mona, Vic, and David "Bro" - put on a great show and party! We were treated to a couple surprise performances too: Michael Anthony stepped in on bass for the first several songs - which included a few Van Halen, Montrose and Chickenfoot favorites. Sammy's son Aaron rocked the vocals on Rock Candy while Sammy worked the onstage crowd.  The slide show above is from the Saturday, May 7 show.
