LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-NOV 30, 2018…ON THIS DAY IN 1982 SAMMY HAGAR RELEASED ‘THREE LOCK BOX.’ IT CAME ON THE HEELS OF SAMMY’S FIRST MILLION SELLING ALBUM ‘STANDING HAMPTON’ AND IT TOO, SOLD OVER A MILLION COPIES. TO HEAR SAMMY HAGAR TELL IT, AT FIRST THE RECORD STORES DIDN’T WANT TO STOCK THE LP: “The title was taken completely wrong and I almost had some difficulties with the big store chains thinking it was a sexual thing. But a “Three Lock Box” stands for mind, body, and spirit — it was also a very valuable buried treasure usually belonging to royalty. When traveling at sea, Kings and Queens would have their valuables in a chest that took three keys to open.” THE RECORD ALSO PRODUCED SAMMY’S HIGHEST CHARTING TOP 40 SINGLE ‘YOUR LOVE IS DRIVING ME CRAZY.’ HERE’S SAMMY HAGAR CIRCA 1982
