Sammy Hagar responds to Cabo Wabo Fresno lawsuit

Last week, Fresno’s failed Cabo Wabo and the fractured relationship between developer Milt Barbis and rocker Sammy Hagar was thrust into the spotlight yet again. Barbis filed a $589 million lawsuit against Hagar, blaming the club’s demise on the ex-Van Halen star.

Today, Hagar’s business manager sent this following statement to The Bee:

Sammy Hagar statement to the Fresno Bee — 10-18-10

“At this time I can’t comment on any of the specific claims brought in the frivolous legal papers filed by Milton Barbis, but anyone who has followed the issues of mismanagement around the entire Granite Park development will not be surprised to learn that the accusations are unfounded. I had hoped that this unhappy experience for me and my fans in the Fresno area was put to rest quite some time ago, but Mr. Barbis refuses to accept this.

“I have no doubt that my fans in Fresno understand this situation and know that no matter what, I love this town and the people in it. It was a great feeling to be back a couple of weeks ago to rock again with all the fans!! I am anxious for the facts to come to light on this situation, so we can all put this behind us and get back to what really matters — keeping the party rocking in Fresno.”

Peace – Sammy
