From breaking into the industry with the seminal hard rock band Montrose, to his multi-platinum solo career and 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 like “I Can’t Drive 55,” “Right Now” and “Why Can’t This Be Love.” Hagar’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. He 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.

Collective Soul’s website states the group was born during the rise of grunge and alternative rock and broke into mainstream international popularity in ’93 with the rock anthem “Shine.” The multi-platinum quintet has been making music for more than two decades since then and has a catalog of #1 hits under their belts.
