Sammy Hagar rocked out in style for the John Varvatos 13th Annual Stuart House Benefit this past weekend in West Hollywood, CA.
Benefit attendees joined the likes of rock royalty Gene Simmons, Cheap Trick, and Matt Sorum to support Stuart House, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the needs of sexually abused children and supporting their families.
Backed by a powerhouse lineup of friends Michael Anthony, Chad Smith, and Vic Johnson, the Red Rocker had a blast as he ran through an hour’s worth of hits for a great cause.
The setlist included “Highway Star”, which featured a very happy John Varvatos on backup vocals, and “I Can’t Drive 55”. The afternoon’s highlight came when Cheap Trick guitarist and recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Rick Nielsen hopped onstage to join the band for a lively cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll”.
Immediately following the performance, the band auctioned off Hagar’s guitar, Smith’s drums, and a private drum lesson from Smith himself, bringing in an additional $12,750 for the benefit.
