Biography

It's the shot heard round the world! Sammy Hagar's RED VOODOO is the rock 'n' roll party album of the new millennium. And who's gonna argue? Says Sammy of the new album, "It's about fun, it's about partying. It makes me want to go to Cabo and play." That Cabo connection is no accident. Sammy's infamous Cabo San Lucas club Cabo Wabo is the closest ... Read more in Amazon's Sammy Hagar Store

Editorial Reviews

While most would suggest that the seminal American hard rock debut from the Sammy Hagar-fronted Montrose is the real coming-out for the singer/guitarist, serious Hagar fans might disagree and offer that title to Nine on a Ten Scale. After two discs with Montrose (a self-titled record and Paper Money), Hagar struck out on his own and quickly released this solo debut after Capitol Records snatched up the hot young vocalist in 1976. If Hagar was anxious to show that he had musical skills that extended way beyond the gravel-voiced, Led Zeppelin-esque howling that he had demonstrated with Ronnie Montrose's heavy metal outfit, this recording definitely accomplishes that goal. Featuring mostly Hagar-penned material, and plenty of the singer's own guitar work as well, this disc -- while not a huge commercial success -- proved that Hagar possessed many talents. Unfortunately, some weak production and questionable lyrics make this record a pretty difficult listen decades after its initial release. But Hagar's voice is unconditionally impressive, and the music has enough of a spark to suggest the artist's rare ability to define a unique musical style. ~ Vincent Jeffries, All Music Guide

Sammy Hagar burst onto the music scene as front man and vocalist on the most incredible rock album produced in the 1970's. Though the San Francisco based band, Montrose, would go on to do little else, the debut album in 1973 introduced the world to the vocal talents of Sammy Hagar. After a second album with Montrose, Sammy stepped out on his own and the results was Nine on a Ten Scale though to all who have had the pleasure of hearing it, I don't believe anyone would rate it less than a 10! The songs are pure Sammy Hagar... His pre-Van Hagar years would feature many songs which his fans felt prostituted his talents. But on this album tracks like Silver Lights, one which explores Sammy's obsession with science fiction and fantasy, and the Van Morrison cover Flamingo's Fly showcase the many faces of his solo career. The 1976 Bammy Winner as best artist says it all. For anyone wishing to truly capture the essence of Sammy Hagar this album is a must to say the least. Every song is unique and yet each is right on target. A cross between heavy metal and power pop, the mixture is incredible. And like a young Elvis, this early release showcases a raw power within the voice of a future legend.

I'll keep it short. Although obscured by the name of Montrose Sammy Hagar was always the driving force. Thus the departure. Sammy was,is and always will be the 4/4 rocker. you can count on guitars, drums, and awesome vocals. Young Girl Blues is the epitomy of this. If your a Sammy fan you'll love it.

Originally released in 1976, as this was Hagar's very first solo record following his departure from Montrose. I've seen this CD in numerous music stores but this was the first time I ever got to listen to it. To me, 'Ten Scale' seems to be where Hagar had managed to 'cut his teeth' (sort to speak). Many of his future titles are better, but nonetheless this hard rocking debut from good 'ol Sammy is decent. Tunes I dug the most were "Keep On Rockin'", the knee-slapping "China", "Silver Lights" and the possible anthem (?) "All American". I'm happy to say that I've recently seen the Red Rocker out on tour and now over thirty years later, he hasn't lost his touch. I really believe being in Van Halen has made him a better songwriter as well as performer. His more current CD's 'Not 4 Sale' and 'Living It Up' are really quite good, considering.

Fresh out of Montrose and before he realized
that he couldn't drive 55, Sammy brings us
Nine On A Ten Scale, a collection of the basic
rock tunes of the time, usually avoided by the
Best-Of sets because these songs are just not
"Pedestrian" enough for the mainstream!
