For almost forty years, Sammy Hagar has been one of rock music's most dynamic and prolific artists. 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. Along his journey, Hagar has also become a dedicated philanthropist, a New York Times best-selling author and auspicious entrepreneur. 

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.

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.

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.”

ZZ Top Coming to Dayton

Having shared the stage many times throughout the decades, ZZ Top and Gregg Allman are set to hit the road together this year, on a tour that will kick off in Huber Heights, OH on Tuesday, August 16th.ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons commented on the bond his band shares with Allman and the upcoming tour, “The history with ZZ Top and Gregg Allman together goes way back to around the time the earth cooled.  The double lineup makes for a killer combination so buckle up and let's have a party!  Rock on!”Formed more than four decades ago in the Houston area of Texas, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees ZZ Top continue to be a relentless touring machine. The bearded duo of singer/guitarist Billy Gibbons and bassist/singer Dusty Hill, and drummer Frank Beard, aka “the man with no beard” have consistently rocked audiences with their brand of chrome-plated, electrified dirty blues. Hot rods, buzzards, B.B.Q., cacti, furry guitars and alluring women are some the many images that have become synonymous with the ZZ Top experience but their blues/rock sonic skew has kept them in forefront for longer than any US-based band.  Audiences can look forward to seeing them belt out timeless hits such as “Legs,” “La Grange,” Sharp Dressed Man,” “Tush,” and many more from their 15 studio albums. As a founding member of the legendary Allman Brothers Band and in his own storied solo career, Gregg Allman has long been a gifted natural interpreter of the blues, his soulful distinctive voice one of the defining sounds in the history of American music. Also a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Allman more recently received the “Living Legend” award from Classic Rock Magazine, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award as part of the ABB. He continues to captivate audiences, as evidenced in his recent Gregg Allman Live: Back to Macon, GA live DVD/CD package, containing crowd favorites like “Statesboro Blues,” “Melissa,” “Queen of Hearts” and “I’m No Angel.”
