“As a mother and fellow member of this community, I wanted to do something to lift spirits and send a positive message of hope and humanity to all the healthcare workers and those on the front lines, as well as raise awareness and funds to support CORE and their relief efforts. When I first put the word out, many jumped on board to contribute; we had over 150 bands submit to play… We are extremely overwhelmed by the level of support we are getting from these rebel artists who are generously donating their time and so grateful for the backing from the biggest players in the media space. Can’t wait to get the word out and provide much-needed funding for CORE while entertaining and lifting the spirits of the nation.”

Sammy Hagar & The Circle Premiere New Video For Their Cover Of David Bowie’s “Heroes”

Sammy Hagar & The Circle have premiered a new video for their cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Lockdown 2020” and all proceeds from it will be donated to food banks nationwide. Hagar commented:

“David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ is one of my favorite songs ever, and a chance to tip our hat to all those frontline workers on every level from the grocery stores, to the policeman and firefighters, doctors etc. that put their own lives at risk & do their jobs to help others. For us it kind of sums up 2020, the whole year. And to release it so close to David Bowie’s birthday just makes it that more special.”

Sammy Hagar On The Possibility Of An Eddie Van Halen Tribute Show: “It’s Gotta Happen”

During a recent interview with New York’s Q104.3 radio station, former Van Halen members Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony were asked about the possibility of a tribute show for the band’s late guitarist Eddie Van Halen. Hagar responded with the following:

“It’s gotta happen. Of course it’s gonna happen. No one’s really connected all the dots with everyone involved, but I have been told, and I have read interviews with various people involved — with Wolfie [Eddie’s son Wolfgang Van Halen] and Valerie [Bertinelli, Eddie’s ex-wife] and Eddie’s wife [Janie] that he was married to at the time — they all said as soon as this is over, we’re gonna get everybody together and do a tribute or whatever; just a ‘thank you,’ a goodbye, a send-off. And that’s an absolute must. I don’t care if it takes 10 years — that will happen. And if we’re available to do it, we’ll do it.”

He also added the following about “Heroes,” which was the last track that the band recorded for the album:

“With the addition of ‘Heroes’, it made sense to help those who are struggling from the effects of COVID-19. It probably wouldn’t have happened without it.”
