Watch Sammy Hagar & The Circle Perform Van Halen’s “Don’t Tell Me (What Love Can Do)” As Part Of Their “Lockdown Sessions”

Sammy Hagar & The Circle recently performed Van Halen’s “Don’t Tell Me (What Love Can Do)” as part of their “Lockdown Sessions.” You can see footage of that below. Hagar said the following:

“When I heard that Kurt Cobain had taken his own life, the first thing I thought of was I wish I were there and could have tried to save him. The original title for these lyrics were ‘I want to show you what love can do,’ but because it was such a dark horrible thing I just couldn’t shine a light on it. So I changed the final line to ‘Don’t tell me what love can do.’ P.S. It was also the time of the breaking up of Van Halen, our last album and tour so it added a lot of emotion, negativity and pain in the original vocal performance which surfaced the second I started singing this song for the first time since 1995.”
