UPDATE: Here’s our full story from today’s Bee. To summarize: Sammy cut ties. Barbis says he’ll continue the club with a new concept, to be announced next week.
ORIGINAL: Sammy Hagar pulled the plug on Fresno Wabo today. Here’s the details:
Sammy Hagar announced Wednesday that he was severing ties with developer Milt Barbis and pulling his Cabo Wabo brand out of Fresno.
“The license has been terminated and the location will no longer be a Cabo Wabo come 2009,” Hagar said in a statement. “I have always stood for providing an exceptional experience for my fans and associating myself with like-minded business partners. If the owners of the current license in Fresno intend to keep the location open and change the concept to something entirely different, it will not be under the Cabo Wabo brand.”

What do you think? Can the once-Cabo Wabo succeed with a new name and without Sammy? Can Granite Park?
