After placing his order a year ago, Sammy Hagar, formerly of Van Halen and Chickenfoot, finally got the keys to his brand new, custom-made 2015 LaFerrari. Only 499 of them are made every 10 years. The price tag is $1.3 million, reports California ABC affiliate 7 News. "Sitting in it intimidates me. This car scared me," says Hagar. Additional details available here. Hagar commented further via his own website saying, "The car looked better than I ever imagined when I saw it. My anticipation to drive it was driving me crazy #ThreeLockbox HaHa. When I finally took possession of the car today after all the red tape involved in a special car like this, Kari and I put 100 miles on it.

W.A.S.P. up-date

W.A.S.P. has premiered the new track “Last Runaway”, the first taste of the new album “Golgotha”, which drops on October 9th via Steamhammer/SPV Records. 

“Forty years ago I came to Hollywood as a teenager,” says frontman Blackie Lawless. “Terrified and scared out of my mind, I had no idea what waited there for me. The song ‘Last Runaway’ is an intensely personal account of what happened to me, not only then but over the years and the success that followed after. Be it a kid looking for success in the music business or any life challenging endeavor that someone would ‘Runaway’ from in life, I’m certain that everyone can relate to this story one way or another. It’s another kid ‘chasing the dream’ and trying to survive it in the process. We’ve all been there.”

Hangover Cure That Work

They found people who ate a pear or drank pear juice before they got hammered had very mild hangovers, less memory loss, and less trouble concentrating. They also didn’t mind bright light and loud noises like you normally do when you’re hungover. Obviously the catch is that pears only work if you have them before you drink, they won’t help you once you already have a hangover. Also, their study only used Asian pears, which you may or may not be able to get at your grocery store.
