A Pennsylvania man has been charged in the death of his wife who went missing nearly 40 years ago.

Warrington police announced Thursday that William Korzon has been charged with murder, forgery and other counts in the death of Gloria Korzon. He was denied bail during an arraignment hearing, and it’s not known if he’s retained an attorney.

Korzon has maintained his innocence since his wife went missing in March 1981. As he was led out of the courthouse Thursday, he told reporters “she went to Florida” and he has no idea where her body is.

Gloria Korzon was declared deceased in 1997. The affidavit filed in Korzon’s arrest lays out a decades-long pattern of abuse and rage in a tumultuous marriage.

Authorities say the investigation is ongoing.

Here’s what Scotland’s dogs looked like 4,500 years ago

The re-created, three-dimensional face of a dog that lived 4,500 years ago in Scotland is so realistic, you almost want to reach out and pet its thick fur.

Besides melting the hearts of animal lovers, this dog — whose skull was found in an elaborate Neolithic burial at Cuween Hill in the Orkney islands, an archipelago off Scotland’s northeastern coast — has surprised scientists. That’s because this furball looks remarkably like a wolf, even though it was likely domesticated.

The dog was the size of a large collie and resembled, in some of its features, a European gray wolf, Alison Sheridan, principal archaeological research curator in the Department of Scottish History and Archaeology at National Museums Scotland, where the skull is stored, said in a statement.

Sheridan added that the skull and reconstruction could reveal details not only “about ceremonial practices and the symbolic significance of the dog in late Neolithic Orkney, but also about the appearance of domestic dogs in the third millennium B.C.” [Gallery: Brand-New Baby Wolves]

More From LiveScience

These days, domesticated dogs tend to have more prominent, raised foreheads than wolves do, Jack Tseng, a functional anatomist at the University at Buffalo, previously told Live Science. Moreover, domestic dogs tend to have shorter faces and more crowded teeth as a result of that, he said. Other research has shown that domesticated dogs tend to have floppier ears, smaller brains, shorter curly tails and lighter and blotchy coats than wild wolves do.

Researchers have known about the Neolithic dog since 1901, when 24 dog skulls were discovered at the Cuween Hill burial. However, this is the first time one of the skulls has been “brought to life” with forensic reconstruction.

Previous research on the Cuween Hill site revealed that the dog remains were placed in the burial chamber there more than 500 years after the original tomb was constructed, indicating that these dogs were buried for ritualistic purposes, the archaeologists said.

To create an accurate 3D model of this particular dog, staff members put the skull in a CT scanner at Edinburgh University’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies. This scan, in turn, gave them enough data to print a 3D model, which forensic artist Amy Thornton used to shape Fido’s head.

Just as she would a human facial re-creation, Thornton created the dog’s likeness by building up muscle, skin and hair on top of the 3D-printed skull. “This brought its own set of challenges, as there is much less existing data relating to average tissue depths in canine skulls compared to humans,” Thornton said in the statement. Even so, “the resulting model gives us a fascinating glimpse at this ancient animal,” she said.

Dogs were clearly important in Neolithic Orkney. These ancient people likely kept them as trained pets and guard dogs, and may have even taught them how to herd sheep, said Steve Farrar, an interpretation manager at Historic Environment Scotland.

“Maybe dogs were their symbol or totem; perhaps, they thought of themselves as the ‘dog people,'” Farrar said in the statement.

Visitors can see the Neolithic dog’s reconstructed, furry head in Orkney later this year.

Everything’s coming up rosy for Taylor Swift.

The “Delicate” musician, 29, is featured on one of the covers of Time’s 100 Most Influential People issue, clad in a baby blue cashmere sweater by Khaite ($660) and a heart-shaped gold, opal and diamond ring from Jennifer Meyer ($4,750).

Inside the issue, Swift poses in a pale pink Stella McCartney chiffon dress ($2,150) alongside an essay by her pop peer Shawn Mendes, who opened a number of the shows during her “1989” world tour.

“Taylor makes the job of creating music for millions of people look easy,” Mendes, 20, wrote. “It all comes from her — her belief in magic and love, and her ability to be as honest and raw as possible. She’s the master of putting the perfect amount of thought into not overthinking, and that’s why her music connects so well.”

Swift’s feature on Time’s list comes amidst rumors that she’s set to release new music on April 26, and it’s likely no coincidence that her look for the shoot — heavy on the pastels and sweet motifs — perfectly matches the aesthetic she’s adopted on social media recently.

Over the past week, the singer’s shared shots of several heart-shaped gems, and has been working with a palette of pastel pinks, blues and yellows; meanwhile, her website currently features a countdown clock set on a backdrop of sparkling hearts and candy-colored clouds. At last month’s iHeartRadio Music Awards, she wore similar shimmering shades, and even debuted (temporary) pink hair.

AG Barr seemed more like counselor to Trump than attorney general, was ‘making a case for the president:’ Chris Wallace

Attorney General William Barr’s statements to the press before the redacted Mueller report on the Russia investigation was released to the public made him appear as though he was a counselor to the president rather the attorney general, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said Thursday.

Barr offered a staunch defense of President Trump on Thursday morning during the press conference where he previewed the report’s findings and explained why he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded that the president had not obstructed justice.

READ THE ROBERT MUELLER REPORT

He also said it was important to consider the “context” for Trump’s actions during the past two years.

“President Trump faced an unprecedented situation. As he entered into office and sought to perform his responsibilities as President, federal agents and prosecutors were scrutinizing his conduct before and after taking office and the conduct of some of his associates,” Barr said. “At the same time, there was relentless speculation in the news media about the President’s personal culpability. Yet, as he said from the beginning, there was, in fact, no collusion.”

WATCH: AG BARR SPARS WITH A REPORTER DURING NEWS CONFERENCE AHEAD OF MUELLER REPORT RELEASE

Reacting to the news conference, Wallace told “America’s Newsroom” Barr “seemed almost to be acting as the counselor for the defense, the counselor for the president.”

“The Attorney General seemed almost to be acting as the counselor for the defense, the counselor for the president, rather than the attorney general, talking about his motives, talking about his anger, his feeling that this was unfair,” he told anchors Bill Hemmer and Sandra Smith. “Really, as I say, making a case for the president.”

Wallace went on to say that Democrats will come down hard on the portions regarding obstruction laid out in the report.

Bob Dylan slams fan for breaking his no-photo rule at Vienna concert: ‘We can either play or we can pose’

If you’re going to a Bob Dylan concert anytime soon, you better leave behind the selfie stick.

Billboard reported Thursday that during a recent show in Vienna, Austria, the 77-year-old folk icon made it clear he wasn’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more or perform in a sea of fans holding up their phones.

BOB DYLAN’S ‘BLONDE ON BLONDE’ COVER WAS AN ACCIDENT

According to the music publication, Dylan paused when an eager viewer broke his no-nonsense no photos rule. In video footage captured by Stereogum on Instagram, a fed-up Dylan mumbled something about “pictures” into the mic. He then walked backward and tripped over a guitar monitor, stumbling and nearly hitting the floor.

“Take pictures or don’t take pictures,” Dylan barked on the mic. “We can either play or we can pose, OK?”

The music news site shared Dylan left the stage after that and the band closed the show with an instrumental version of “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues.” The 1965 track has been the finale throughout his tour.

Rolling Stone noted Dylan has had a strict no photos policy in his concerts for years, but that hasn’t stopped fans from whipping out their cellphones and attempting to snap a few images or record videos before security swarms with flashlights. Audiences are also informed before Dylan’s performances that photographs are forbidden.

The incident also marked the first time Dylan had spoken to the crowd in some time. Audiences used to only hear his speaking voice when he introduced the band, but he has stopped doing that about two years ago.

The music magazine reported Dylan’s ongoing European tour wraps May 7 in Valencia, Spain. After a six-week break, he heads back to Europe for another run of dates that features two co-headlining shows with Neil Young in London and Kilkenny, Ireland.

Photographer Jerry Schatzberg previously worked with the star during one of the singer’s most pivotal moments of his life, when he had shocked his fans by going electric. In October 2018, Schatzberg, 91, told Fox News about his dear friend that “what Dylan wants, Dylan gets.” He also shared Dylan is famously wary of the press and notoriously private.

“I fell in love with his music, as everybody else did,” Schatzberg explained at the time. “And it just evolved. And we got along personally… He’s not very open and cordial to the press. He doesn’t like being asked questions and they’re always asking the same ones. It’s just not him. But he knew he had to put up with it for a while. I’m sure he still does.”

“In my way of thinking, and maybe I met too many people in my life, I don’t find him so inaccessible,” added Schatzberg. “He wasn’t inaccessible to me. Sure, I was intimidated at first… But he’s just a real person with an extraordinary talent.”

3-year-old born with ‘backward’ legs takes first steps after pioneering surgery

A “one-in-a-million” 3-year-old born with both legs bent backward has walked for the first time after the public helped raise $234G for “miracle” surgery.

Victoria Komada has bilateral tibial hemimelia – a congenital deformity which causes babies to be born with deformed legs and missing bones. Victoria had faced losing both her legs after doctors said two years ago that the only solution was a double amputation.

MOM SAYS TODDLER NEARLY DIED AFTER ACCIDENTALLY EATING LAUNDRY POD: ‘WE GOT VERY LUCKY’

But the family then found an American surgeon in Florida who performed two miracle surgeries to save one of her legs, and give her the ability to walk for the first time.

Victoria’s parents managed to raise $234,000 for her treatment with the generosity of communities in Norwich and Szczecin, where the family is from in Poland.

“She was in a lot of pain all day and all night,” Marzena Drusewicz, Victoria’s mother said, of her recovery. “We had all had enough. It was really horrible. Of course, I was so scared and didn’t know what was going to happen. She would cry and scream so much after the operation.”

Victoria and her parents returned to their home on Monday after spending the last nine months in Florida.

“Every week she got better and better and now she is not in any pain at all and can walk normally and we can all start our life again now we are home,” she said. “We were so happy when she took her first steps we started crying. We were on the way to the car and she said Mummy, can I show you something.”

Last July the family flew out to the Paley Institute in West Palm Beach where Dr. Dror Paley told them that the left leg could be fixed perfectly but he would have to amputate her right leg and fit a prosthetic if she wanted to walk.

Victoria had her first nine-hour operation on July 24, when her right leg was amputated above her knee and pins were put into her left leg before a fixator was attached.

Over the following months, screws were twisted into Victoria’s legs every day to move the bones into the right position.

Her second operation was on November 13, where the bones in Victoria’s left leg were fused together to strengthen the leg, and two days later she could walk again.

Two stolen Vincent van Gogh paintings are back on display, 16 years after being swiped from museum

Two paintings by Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh stolen more than 16 years ago are finally back on public display after the pieces were recovered in 2016.

The paintings — “View of the Sea at Scheveningen” and “Congregation Leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen” — were stolen from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in December 2002, The Guardian reported. The works of arts were completed between 1882 and 1885.

VINCENT VAN GOGH DISCOVERY: PREVIOUSLY UNKNOWN DRAWINGS BY DUTCH MASTER IDENTIFIED

Octave Durham and Henk Bieslijn stole the works of art after breaking into the museum. The “View of the Sea at Scheveningen” was damaged during the robbery and a corner was torn off. Durham was convicted after his DNA matched strands of hair in a hat he dropped at the scene.

Raffaele Imperiale, a mafia boss, purchased the ill-gotten paintings in 2003 for around $393,527. Durham used the money to splurge on motorbikes, vacations and a Mercedes E320. He was arrested in December 2003.

Imperiale admitted to prosecutors in Naples, Italy, that he had the paintings, which were discovered in his mother’s home.

It took two years to restore the paintings. Unlike “View of the Sea at Scheveningen,” the “Congregation Leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen” did not sustain much damage. Both were fitted in new frames.

The two paintings can be seen at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

The left mourns the loss of a magazine like the loss of a friend: “We had so much quality time together!” “You understood me!” The motivation to save these outlets is both political and cultural — if one is allowed to die off, the rest will follow, along with their influence.

Enter, TIME magazine. Bleeding circulation for years, unable to translate its print appeal to an Internet age, TIME has gone from a circulation of nearly 20 million worldwide to a few million, primarily web-based. The only thing really keeping it going is its two flagships: the “Person of the Year” issue and its “100 Most Influential” issue. The latter was released with P.R. worthy of a queen’s state visit on Wednesday.

Aside from the obvious “influential” folks (Bill Barr, Bob Mueller, and President Trump), TIME included a few other curious choices, like Justice Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford. About her, guest profiler Kamala Harris wrote, “Her story, spoken while holding back tears, shook Washington and the country … Through her courage, she forced the country to reckon with an issue that has too often been ignored and kept in the dark.”

Totally political. What Blasey Ford did and said last October was accuse a man of sexual misconduct 30 years prior with zero corroboration. And remember, she initially sent an anonymous note accusing Kavanaugh, which was then leaked to the Washington Post. Most importantly, this “icon” (at least according to TIME) failed to derail the nomination. How is that so “influential”?

And then you have another TIME influencer, Taylor Swift. She continues to be an entertainment juggernaut, but her big move this past year was to throw in with the Democrats and endorse Marsha Blackburn’s Senate opponent in Tennessee. Blackburn decided to “shake it off” and won. Not so swift, perhaps, to think your pop music translates to any great political appeal.

Again, rather than be introspective about its loss of appeal in middle America and beyond, TIME just keeps clinging to the old liberal model of journalism and political correctness. “We have 48 women on the list this year, up from 45 a year before,” said TIME editor Ed Felsenthal of the “Influential” issue. “When we started the list in 2004, there were only 24, so we have a ways to go. But it shows we are like society.”

No, you’re not. The rest of society doesn’t throw itself a glamorous party when its business model is losing money.

Speaking of glamorous, model and wife of John Legend, Chrissy Teigen was also chosen as one of the 100 “Most Influential.” Known for her vicious attacks on President Trump, she was chosen because “all her life, Chrissy Teigen has liked to eat. She’s not shy about that — or anything else, really.”

That’s nice and innovative, but did most Americans like her take on female empowerment during last week’s Democrat retreat? When asked whether there was one word, she would like to help women use more frequently, she answered, “F–k you!”

Oh, and big shock: joining the Trump-hating model on the list is a Trump-hating comedian, Trump-hating filmmaker, and a Trump-hating TV producer. And for good measure, they threw in Michelle Obama.

TIME magazine is sort of the last gasp almanac of the elite. But the elites don’t admit defeat easily. There is perhaps no better example than how they’ve dealt with Mueller’s “no collusion” and “no obstruction” findings. With Thursday’s release of the Mueller report, minus redactions, we are bound to see more gyrations from the same suspects and from activists who raised millions off the defamation that Trump was a traitor. They have moved from “he conspired with the Russians” to “Barr is just redacting stuff to help Trump!”

The hard-core socialists and their media co-conspirators will cling to the Russian delusion for as long as they can, or simply shift to new targets within Trump World … They can’t see their ongoing self-sabotage.

And now, they are grasping at something new — the timing of Bill Barr’s press conference. We’ve gone from Trump’s guilty of sedition to the attorney general is guilty of aggressive scheduling. Why don’t they wait for the report to come out, read it, then gripe?  Decide if you have issues with it.

In the end, the Mueller team spun its wheels and in the process threw a lot of mud at good people. Sure, there were indictments and guilty pleas, but between Attorney General Barr and the Inspector General Michael Horowitz, we may just find out that the supposed guilty ones were just Deep State pawns.

The Mueller probe should have never been started in the first place. We told you that they’d find nothing on the president, that its origins were politically tainted. We were right, and the left was wrong.  Even an Op-Ed in the Washington Post admitting this: “Fox News was right and the others were wrong. … even regular viewers of CNN and MSNBC must certainly recognize the straws being grasped to justify sticking with a conspiracy theory that has been largely debunked.”

Of course the hard-core Socialists and their media co-conspirators will cling to the Russian delusion for as long as they can, or simply shift to new targets within Trump World. They are such anti-Trump fanatics that they can’t see their ongoing self-sabotage.

Like their creaky “best of” lists, their TIME is (FINALLY?) long since up.

New 40mm cannon on Marine Corp amphibious combat vehicle destroys drones, pickup trucks

Westlake Legal Group new-40mm-cannon-on-marine-corp-amphibious-combat-vehicle-destroys-drones-pickup-trucks New 40mm cannon on Marine Corp amphibious combat vehicle destroys drones, pickup trucks Warrior Maven Kris Osborn fox-news/tech/topics/us-marines fnc/tech fnc article 62aa12ff-cfb5-5b17-81ae-2bc8d05586ae

Navy and Marine Corps interest in up-gunning its new Amphibious Combat Vehicle with a stronger, longer-range 40mm cannon may have taken a step forward following a live-fire demonstration which blasted off the cannon — destroying enemy pick-up trucks, aerial drones, groups of fighters and other metal targets.

Integrating the new cannon brings a new level of firepower to the Corps’ emerging new high-tech ACV, which is currently armed with a 30mm Bushmaster Northrop Chain Gun – Cannon. The live-fire demo, taking place at a recent Northrop Grumman Bushmaster User Conference in the Arizona desert, showed the 40mm armed cannon’s ability to explode, burn and shatter larger, more fortified targets at longer ranges — compared to the ACVs 30mm cannon.

A 40mm diameter brings a larger attack explosion, significantly longer range and — in a newer cutting edge development — and ability to target and hit air-flying enemy drones.

“We invest every year in upgrading our current systems to make them more lethal and reliable. Gun system upgrades leverage new innovations, advanced ammunition,” Dan Olson, Vice President of Northrop Grumman Armament Systems, told Warrior Maven in an interview.

MARINE CORPS FIRES WEAPONS AT ITS NEW AMPHIBIOUS COMBAT VEHICLE

Potential 40mm cannon counter-air drone attacks represents a significant step forward for vehicle-mounted cannons. It brings an ability to ID and destroy closer-in air targets such as approaching small drones or even low flying enemy helicopters; it can add an additional layer of combat tactics able to reinforce the existing Short Range Air Defense (SHORAD) program designed to fire Hellfire missiles and other weapons to hit higher-flying air-threats. Integrated sensor technology could, in some instances, share and pass off targets, enabling a vehicle-mounted cannon to expand its envelope beyond land-targets.

The new 40mm weapons configuration is aligned with an emerging Navy-Marine Corps amphibious assault strategy which, among other things, sees a possible need for extended penetration into land defenses after an initial beachhead is taken.

As a way to demonstrate and further explore the ACV Bushmaster Cannon’s attack flexibility, Northrop Grumman and BAE Systems demonstrated the 40mm gun firing on the move, hitting and exploding white pick-up truck targets, drones and fixed structures on the other side of an Arizona desert valley.

This desired flexibility, fortified by added land attack firepower, also complements other elements of the Corps’ newer, more “dispersed” amphibious assault strategy; if amphibious incursions occur in narrow, more spread-apart scenarios, landing forces will potentially need to engage in more land-fighting without large numbers of forces nearby. They will likely rely more upon air support, long-range fires and “networked” intelligence from other ISR nodes, command and control ships or elements of the force — to find and exploit landing areas most advantageous to the attacking force.

The new ACV uses ocean water to cool the engine so as to enable it to carry up to 200 gallons of fuel – enough for a longer 365-mile mission. While the new ACV can travel roughly 13 miles through the water, at about six knots, from ship to shore, it can hit speeds of 60mph on land for hundreds of miles inland. Northrop’s development of the 40mm cannon is, to a large extent, intended to support this strategy, as its longer range and ammunition are designed to support deeper land-attack penetration possibilities.

The Northrop-BAE teaming arrangement is now finalizing gun-turret integration to further prepare the weapon for combat in the next several years. Corps developers cite sensor-weapons-gun alignment as a key emphasis in their development of the ACV; its increased landward speed maneuverability compared with the current AAV are enhanced by “a precision weapons station for enhanced lethality, and a robust swim capability to operate within the littorals,” Col. Kirk Mullins, ACV 1.1 Program Manager, Advanced Amphibious Assault, Program Executive Officer Land Systems.

“The vehicle is designed to have a turret superstructure that is reinforced in the base design. This is the culmination of turret-integration analysis,” John Swift, Director of Amphibious Warfare, told Warrior Maven in an interview.

Northrop weapons developers explain that the 40mm cannon can, due to the vehicle’s turret and fire control configuration, easily swap out the 30mm cannon barrel for a 40mm barrel without any technical difficulty or significant alterations.

“The ACV is not maintenance intensive because of its increased reliability, and it also provides greater protection against threats we encounter on the battlefield,” Mullins added.

Some of the 40mm demonstration firing, Swift said, included “networked” attacks upon groups of enemy fighters using nearby RPGs. The RPG fire, he explained, was connected to the base vehicle to reinforce destructive power by hitting the target from horizontal and vertical angles. Targets were passed off, in some cases, by using a laser rangefinder. This technology fires a laser beam at a target, traveling at the speed of light. Given that the speed of light is a known entity, it can mathematically be combined with the length of time it takes to travel to the target. Given these two established variables, algorithms can then calculate the exact distance, placing the round on a target.

Along with a larger, larger-range gun, Northrop is also working intensely on ammunition preparation – to include advanced airburst rounds, high-explosive rounds an emerging “proximity” rounds. Each of these rounds brings a new sphere of attack options for offensive operations, as they can detonate near or above a specific target. By exploding in a certain area, a proximity fuse can use a smart, pre-programmed fuse to destroy groups of enemy fighters or other “area” targets more difficult to hit with standard “point-detonate” rounds. Airburst rounds already exist, and Olson said Northrop is fast-tracking the development of proximity rounds

“We have been investing pretty heavily in our ammunition to further enhance the lethality of our systems. This includes the area of proximity fusing and the creation of on-board power and computing power to ID targets,” Olson said.

Along with efforts to upgrade its offensive fire-power, the Marine Corps has also been preparing to assess the vehicle’s ability to withstand attacks, by firing live weapons at its new Amphibious Combat Vehicle — until the attacks achieve “total destruction.” This is designed to prepare the vehicle for long-range, high-intensity land-attack missions emerging from an amphibious assault.

Senior Corps and Navy leaders have long expressed concern that the current amphibious assault force is far too small to meet current threats and Combatant Commander requests. A new up-gunned water-land strike vehicle, therefore, clearly seems intended to help bridge the gap.

“We have an ongoing challenge in readiness, given the threats to amphibious forces,” Maj. Gen. David Coffman, Director of Naval Expeditionary Warfare, said in January at the Surface Naval Association Symposium.

Unlike existing tracked AAVs, the new ACVs are 8X8 wheeled vehicles engineered for greater speed, maneuverability and survivability on land. By removing the need for torsion bars, a wheeled-vehicle such as the ACV can build a V-shaped hull for additional protection, speed and combat durability, BAE Systems developers say.

“The Marine Corps went from tracked to wheeled because of advances in automotive technology,” Swift said.

HYPERSONIC NUKES AND LASERS THAT MAKE YOU VOMIT — TERRIFYING WEAPONS THAT COULD BE UNLEASHED IN WORLD WAR 3

The new vehicle weighs 30-tons and has a digitized driver’s instrument panel. The existing new ACVs are armed with .50-Cal Machine Guns and engineered with an unmanned turret that can integrate the 40mm gun. The new ACV also makes use of a stronger 700hp engine, compared to the AAVs 400hp engine.

A more dispersed amphibious attack force not only reduces vulnerability to enemy fire but can also use advanced C4ISR and networking to better identify key points of attack across a wider area.

The new vehicle, currently under a Navy Low-Rate Initial Production deal with BAE Systems to deliver 30 vehicles. The Corps is preparing to deploy new BAE-built Amphibious Combat Vehicles by 2021.

After having already collaborated with Smash Mouth’s 2013 “Recipes on the Road” cookbook (for real), rock icon Sammy Hagar and celebrity chef Guy Fieri are teaming up to gift the masses with yet another culinary offering — in the form of Sammy Hagar’s next tequila.

“There are a few things I know: Great food, killer drinks and wild times,” Fieri said in a press release for Santo Fino Blanco, the second spirit in Hagar’s Los Santos line of liquors. “And Sammy and I are makin’ it all happen with Los Santo.”

Hagar, who famously sold a majority stake in his first tequila brand, Cabo Wabo, to the Campari group for $80 million, claims it was Fieri who approached him about crafting a new tequila just has Hagar was considering adding a blanco to his Los Santo line.

“Guy and I shook hands and a few months later we were sipping the most amazing blanco tequila we’d ever tasted.”

The new tequila’s recipe is being helmed by master distiller Juan Eduardo Nuñez, who worked with Hagar on his Cabo Wabo Tequila and his subsequent tequila-mezcal hybrid for Los Santo.

Santo Fino Blanco will be available starting sometime in May, according to the press release. Hagar’s last Los Santo offering, a tequila-mezcal blend called Santo Puro Mezquila, was introduced in 2017, and said to be a concept developed by Hagar and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.
