Rick Redpath of Greene, N.Y., Wins Trip to Sammy Hagar’s Birthday Bash
When Richard “Rick” Redpath, Jr., received the news that he’d won a trip for two to Sammy Hagar’s annual Birthday Bash in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, he could barely contain himself.
“I’ve been a fan of Sammy Hagar since I was in high school and started listening to his band Montrose. I was a lead singer myself and loved singing ‘Bad Motor Scooter.’ It’s one of my favorite songs, although, depending on the day I also love ‘Dreams’ from when he was with Van Halen,” said Redpath. “Winning the contest sounded too good to be true, but when the reality sank in, I yelled so loudly that my neighbor called to see if I was okay! I can’t wait to meet the rock legend.”
This is the second year Mercury Insurance has partnered with Hagar to give his fans the chance to win a trip to this event that sells out in minutes.
“I’m a huge music fan – I used to wait outside of record stores when I knew albums were going to be released. A friend told me about Chickenfoot back in the day and I was blown away by every song they put out,” adds Rick. “I was inspired to enter the contest simply because Sammy is one cool dude. I really can’t wait to experience his party with my fiancée.”
We’ll follow up with Rick to share some of his adventures in Cabo after the Birthday Bash in October. In the meantime, to get a taste of what Rick will experience, here’s a couple of videos from last year’s winners:
