One of the many to fall prey to Hurricane Sandy is Sammy Hagar’s Atlantic City Beach Bar and Grill.
An unfortunate March 8 post on RedRocker.com read, “Following months of ongoing discussions, Sammy Hagar has regretfully been unable to come to terms with Caesars Entertainment on the rebuilding of the Sammy Beach Bar & Grill at Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel and Casino. Since opening in May 2010, the restaurant had been a popular boardwalk destination until it was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. While Hagar continues to explore a new partnership in the region, he and his Hagar Family Foundation will remain committed to the Atlantic City community through which he has supported local children’s charities for the last several years.”
All is not lost for Hagar and fans of his restaurant though, as his Beach Bar and Grill is located in five other locations: New York, Las Vegas, St. Louis, Maui, Hawaii and Roseville, Calif.
In more positive news, the Red Rocker recently hinted to the release of an album in 2013 along with a possible reunion tour with the surviving members of Montrose when he posted a picture on his Facebook page with the caption:
“Denny [Carmassi] and Bill [Church] in town - We recorded some new music last week it was amazing we still have that Montrose chemistry keep ya all posted.”
