Watch Sammy Hagar & The Circle Pay Tribute To The Late Taylor Hawkins With Live Cover Of Foo Fighters’ “My Hero”

During their April 29 set at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, TN, Sammy Hagar & The Circle paid tribute to the late Taylor Hawkins with a live cover of Foo Fighters’ “My Hero.” You can see footage of that below. Hagar said the following about the performance:

“When we were asked by the promoter to fill in for the Foo Fighters at the Beale Street Music Festival, my first reaction was ‘No fucking way!’ We discussed it as a band, and we came up with ‘Why not! Let’s just go play music and you’re at a big ass Circle party for those people, just do what we do!’ Then with Dave Grohl’s blessings we decided to do a broken down version of one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands. It felt appropriate. No rehearsal, After all this is rock ‘n’ roll and that’s what it’s all about. Enjoy.”
