Sammy Hagar praises his long-time bandmate / guitarist Vic Johnson
Former Van Halen and Montrose frontman Sammy Hagar has played with some of the best guitarists in the world given that he has released albums with the legendary Eddie Van Halen (Van Halen), Joe Satriani (Chickenfoot) and Ronnie Montrose (Montrose).
However, for the last 25 years, Hagar has recorded and played the most with another guitarist who is none other than his current Sammy Hagar & The Circle bandmate Vic Johnson. Of note, Sammy Hagar & The Circle‘s debut studio album Space Between finished at #8 on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2019.
The following message was posted on Hagar‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“Happy birthday to my right hand man, my left hand man just plain old main man Vic Johnson. Big walked into my studio in 1996. Played “Rock Candy,” “Three Lockbox,” and “Finish What You Started.” We shook hands and 25 years later we are still rockin together. As much as I love to play guitar, when you got a guy like Vic Johnson on your team you will always be the second guitarist!!! my brother.”
