Sammy Hagar Vows to Play Concerts Regardless of Coronavirus:


Red Rocker also says 'I'd rather personally get sick and even die' to help the economy

There's been a variety of responses to the ongoing coronavirus in how it's impacted the world at large and concert business as a whole. But Sammy Hagar has taken it to another level.

In an interview with Rolling Stone as part of a piece where they spoke to 14 artists about how they're dealing with the pandemic, and the former Van Halen singer didn't hold back.

"I'll be comfortable playing a show before there's a vaccine, if it's declining and seems to be going away. I'm going to make a radical statement here. This is hard to say without stirring somebody up, but truthfully, I'd rather personally get sick and even die, if that's what it takes," Hagar said.

He went on to say that he's willing to pay the ultimate price in order to help save the economy if that's what it takes.

"I would rather see everyone go back to work. If some of us have to sacrifice on that, OK. I will die for my children and my grandchildren to have a life anywhere close to the life that I had in this wonderful country. That's just the way that I feel about it."
