Sammy Hagar Planning To Release New Album This Year

Sammy Hagar says he is in the studio now with his group, the Waboritas, "rehearsing and writing songs." Speaking with Las Vegas magazine, he added that "We're putting something out this year and we'll probably go out and do 25-30 shows."

The Red Rocker's last effort, Cosmic Universal Fashion, hit in 2008.

Aside from working on the new album, the versatile rocker is also expanding his empire of party-themed restaurants:

"We're opening another Cabo Wabo in Los Angeles at Hollywood and Vine." He's also following up his recent memoir with "a lifestyle cookbook with some of my chef friends."

Meanwhile, Hagar's other group, Chickenfoot, is taking 2013 off, as guitarist Joe Satriani is "doing his thing" and drummer Chad Smith is on tour with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, says Hagar.
