His pioneering vision to create and invest in Mexican businesses, including Cabo Wabo Cantina, Cabo Wabo Tequila and Santo Tequila, have created countless local jobs and have enhanced Los Cabos’ visibility as a travel destination.

“Being honored for anything in Los Cabos is the same for me as being honored in my hometown, because I feel this is my hometown and has been since the early ’80s. I will treasure this award, putting it right next to my Grammy, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction award and the rest of my music awards. I am truly thankful and excited about this ceremony.

Sammy Hagar & The Circle have officially finished their new album. Hagar told Joe Rock the following about that:

“We just finished a whole freakin’ record. Right now it’s tentatively called ‘These Crazy Times’. And it is all brand new songs. We went in with Dave Cobb, the producer in Nashville. And it’s not a country record. He’s a great producer. He’s a rock guy to the bone. He just happens to produce Chris Stapleton and Brandi Carlile. RIVAL SONS, he produces that band too. Anyway, he’s a great producer. We went in and did a whole new record with THE CIRCLE. And it’s so badass, I just can’t wait to get it out.”
