Sammy Hagar And The Circle have premiered a new video for their song “No Worries.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Space Between.”
Hagar told Forbes the following about “No Worries”:
“It’s like a metaphor. In the album ‘Space Between’, I wrote a concept record about money, greed, enlightenment and truth. What happens is, in the songs, the guy lost everything. He was on top of the world, kicking ass, but he was an asshole and greedy and it went to his head. Then he got bumped out of everything and it took that to have the enlightenment moment cause the enlightenment moment is when you are sitting there with nothing and you realize it’s not so bad. ‘This is better than when I was rich and powerful and all the hassles I had and fucking people and getting fucked and all that stuff.’ When you got nothing, you’re just sitting there going, ‘Wow, I don’t have any worries.’ I came from that place so I know that it does exist. It’s not where I am today, but it was important in my story. And the video cracks me up because we took a businessman and took his tie and put it around his head, he starts doing cartwheels down the street. I love it, I love enlightenment, that song to me is about that. You can really live that way if you can figure it out, but otherwise you gotta go through some shit to get there. Most people start there, but they don’t realize it was a pretty good place to be, ‘No Worries.’ It’s kind of my lifestyle now, but I didn’t have to go through all that to get it.”
During Sammy Hagar & The Circle’s May 19 show at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, Missouri, the band were joined onstage by Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil for a cover of Montrose’s “Rock Candy.” You can see fan-filmed footage of that below:
