From breaking into the industry with the seminal hard rock band Montrose, to his multiplatinum solo career to his ride as the front man of Van Halen, the “Red Rocker” has set the tone for some of the greatest rock anthems ever written with songs like "I Can't Drive 55," "Right Now," and "Why Can't This Be Love." He’s earned the highest respect of the music industry with a Grammy Award and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside Van Halen and is currently on his fourth platinum run with the super group Chickenfoot.

Hagar first burst onto the scene in San Francisco as the lead singer of Montrose. Following a string of eight solo albums culminating in several platinum efforts and hundreds of sold out concert appearances across the country, Hagar joined Van Halen in 1985 and took the band to unprecedented heights, including four consecutive No.1 albums before the band broke up in the midnineties. He later returned to Van Halen to lead a triumphant 2004 reunion tour. 

Aside from making his mark as a hit songwriter and lead vocalist, Hagar has played with a succession of legendary guitar players; from Ronnie Montrose and Neal Schon to Eddie Van Halen and Joe Satriani and his current group, The Circle, which also features former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson.

Beyoncé helps organize surprise proposal, stops concert during 'Single Ladies'

One of Beyoncé's most well-known lyrics might be: "If you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it."

>> Read more trending stories  

The 35-year-old singer stopped her concert in St. Louis on Saturday during the popular song "Single Ladies" to allow a concertgoer to do just that -- put a ring on it.

"I think (there's) somebody I need to bring on the stage," Beyoncé said during the song, prompting unsuspecting fans to scream in the hopes that they'd be chosen to join her.

"Is it you?" she teased, pointing to one audience member. "Is it you?" she asked, pointing to another. 

Before long, a man joined Beyonce and her two dancers onstage, and she handed him the microphone.

The man, John Silver, walked toward Ashley Everett, Beyoncé's lead dancer and dance captain, and embraced her.

"I feel like it's only right to come out here in front of my hometown and show you guys what the epitome of a young woman looks like," Silver told the crowd. "I know that you think don't I express my love to you in front of everybody, so I feel like what better time than now to do it in front of (a crowd of people)? ... Will you marry me?"

The couple embraced before being congratulated by Beyoncé.

"Let's see if you can do the choreography after that," she said.

Everett, who took a few moments to collect herself, got back into formation and finished the choreography to "Single Ladies," flashing her new ring while doing the movements.

According to her website, Everett, who dropped out of Julliard to dance on tour with Beyoncé, has danced with the singer for the last 8 years and has also shared the stage with Robin Thicke, Usher, Ciara, Ne-Yo, LaToya Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Tina Turner.

Apple patent blocks iPhones from recording at concerts

Apple was awarded a U.S. patent in June for a system that can force iPhones into disabling video-recording functions at concert venues.

The system uses infrared signals to send messages to the smartphones to force them to shut down video recording capabilities. Apple's patent illustration shows a phone at a concert with the words "recording disabled" on screen. 

Various artists have been outspoken about fans filming their shows, with many claiming that it spoils the experience for other fans.

During a show this summer, Adele publicly told a fan who was filming the performance: "You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera ... I'd really like you to enjoy my show because there's lots of people outside that couldn't come in."

It's not known whether Apple plans to put the patent into use.

Yondr is another company with a mission to eliminate cellphone distractions at concerts.

The company creates "phone-free spaces" at events where attendees must seal their cellphones in one of the company's lockable pouches. The pouch stays locked inside the phone-free zone but unlocks once you leave it.

"If you haven't been to a phone-free show, you just don't know what you're missing. There's something about living in real life that can’t be replicated," Yondr founder Graham Dugoni told The Washington Post.

You wanted the best: Meet the biggest local KISS fans

KISS, a band with a massive worldwide following, will play Wright State’s Nutter Center on August 22. But the Dayton area holds a special place in Kiss lore.

So I went looking for some of the biggest fans in the KISS Army. It was here, on January 31, 1976, that singer and guitarist Paul Stanley looked out and saw a sold out Hara Arena with his band headlining. In that moment, according to multiple interviews, he believed his band had arrived.

It was around that same time that Dayton resident Dean Swann and members of his family became members of the KISS Army. While still living in Kentucky, his cousins would come over for summer visits where they would all become basement rock stars.

“I would rope them into doing Kiss concerts. We would try to do our own makeup. All of a sudden, all of the aluminum foil in the house and Christmas lights were gone,” Swann says.

Swann went on to make a living performing in theatres and playhouses both near and far for 14 years. The Kentucky transplant has been a part of productions in New York City, Miami, Dayton and as far away as Japan…and he credits KISS for planting the seed.

“I got into theater because I wanted to be in a rock band,” Swann remembers. “I wanted to have the effect on an audience that KISS had on me.”

His dedication to the theater paid off when he was asked to play the title role in an off-Broadway production of the rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

“That was probably the closest I got in my professional theater career to being in a band. They taught me to do the (Hedwig) makeup. Just like KISS!” Swann laughs.

http://youtu.be/LeUosbClag8

Since then, he’s has added “lead singer” to his long list of roles, having formed a real rock band that plays locally.

As a child, his cousins joined him for his first Kiss show in Lexington. Even a snow storm couldn’t damper his excitement of seeing “The Hottest Band in the World”.

“When you’re that age and you’ve seen these pictures of these guys, and then you see them live, it’s Star Wars on stage,” he says. “They looked 7 feet tall and they looked like superheroes.”

Swann says he’s been to 21 other KISS concerts since that first experience, but has never met any of the band members. When asked if he’d like to, he initially answers with an emphatic yes. But then he thinks more about it.

 “You know, people say you should never meet your heroes because you might get disappointed. So maybe not. It’s just the mystique,” he says.

“I think it’s better to leave them as those superheroes that I identified as a kid.”
