Classic Album Review: Sammy Hagar | Red Voodoo

The Red Rocker offers more party-hearty rockers & ballads about booze & babes.

This came out in 1999 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):


No matter where Van Halen fans stand in the eternal David Lee Roth vs. Sammy Hagar debate, they can all agree on one thing: Both can crank out some gawdawful solo albums.

Of course, to be fair, Hagar the horrible has the advantage. After all, he was making gawdawful albums back when Dave’s hairline was still on the front of his head. His latest, Red Voodoo, falls right in line — the usual collection of party-hearty FM rockers and power ballads about booze and babes. It’s all as predictable as another Van Halen reunion.
