Sammy Hagar answered fan-submitted questions this past Tuesday, September 24 as part of a live Google+ Hangout event. You can now watch the question-and-answer session below.

Hagar‘s first-ever rock collaborations album, “Sammy Hagar And Friends”, is likely to sell between 13,000 and 15,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on September 24 via Frontiers

Hagar enlisted three legendary musicians — Toby Keith, Mickey Hart and Taj Mahal — to round out the final three tracks on “Sammy Hagar And Friends”. The effort was preceded by the CD’s first single and video for the high-voltage track “Knockdown Dragout” featuring Kid Rock, Joe Satriani and Denny Carmassi.

In addition to the 10-track standard edition album, fans also have an opportunity to purchase a deluxe edition of “Sammy Hagar And Friends”, packaged in a high-gloss digipak. The deluxe CD/DVD package includes an exclusive bonus audio track, “Space Station #5”, recorded live at the Ronnie Montrose Tribute Concert held on April 29, 2012 in San Francisco, as well as the “making-of” album documentary which includes bonus video of the first single “Knockdown Dragout”, and more.

We've had some interesting supergroups this year like Palms and Scar the Martyr, but Teenage Time Killer is an entirely new breed… mainly because there are guest appearances from a slew of legendary musicians and only two core members. All I'm saying is that picture of Randall Blythe with Corrosion of Conformity comes into play …

Hagar and his lineup of guest stars will take fans on a hit-filled retrospective from the Red Rocker’s prolific career. Fans can also expect some surprise “friends” to join Hagar on stage for a sneak peek of tracks from the new album.
