Sammy Hagar & The Circle covers Van Halen’s “Right Now”

Sammy Hagar & The Circle, band composed by the Red Rocker (Sammy), Michael Anthony (Bass), Vic Johnson (Guitar) and Jason Bonham (Drums) made another great cover in their special video series “Lockdown Sessions”. That is being shared weekly in their social networks. The band played Van Halen’s classic “Right Now” for the fans.


The band already played in the Lockdown Series their new song “Funky Feng Shui” and covered The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again”, Van Halen’s “Good Enough”, Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds”, AC/DC’s “Whole Lotta Rosie” and more.

In a recent interview, Sammy Hagar talked about the Covid-19 situation, saying:

“When it first came out and they said people over 60 are at risk of dying. It was that big of a deal. I got a little nervous. I thought, ‘Woah. Woah Woah.’ And then I thought about it, and after three weeks of lockdown, I was really getting bored, but I also started kind of liking it. My whole life I’ve worked every day of my life. Sunday, it may be the Lord’s day off, but it’s not Sammy Hagar’s day off.”

“I worked every freakin’ day of my life in some fashion on one of my projects. Either I’m recording or I’m writing, or whatever. So all of a sudden, I went, ‘Man, I don’t have anything to do.’ I go wake up in the morning, just put on my bathing suit like I always do, and not have to get dressed, not have to go anywhere. I started digging it a little bit, and then when I did, I slowed down enough to where I really thought about my age and about what could happen, when I was still worried about this possibly killing me.”

Sammy continued:

“And you know what I thought of? I thought, you know what? I’ve had the best life of any human being on this planet. If the damn thing wants to come and get me and kill me, let it be. Life isn’t gonna be any better from this day on for the rest of my life than it has been. And I swear to you — I came to grips with it. And I was not afraid.”

“I didn’t wanna get anyone else contagious if I had it, but I don’t have it — I’m healthy as a freakin’ tick. So all of sudden, I wasn’t afraid of it anymore. And then I got jumped up about it. I said, ‘This is bullcrap, people being afraid and staying away from their own children and their own parents.’ It just took the love out of families.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
