Sammy Hagar Says He "Inherited" His Van Halen Era Songs

Sammy Hagar said he and his band the Circle “inherited” the songs that appeared on5150, his first album with Van Halen, which was released 33 years ago.

The singer, whose current group includes fellow Van Halen ex Michael Anthony, continue to perform a number of those songs at their live shows.

In a video released yesterday marking the anniversary of5150, Hagar said, “Playing the Van Hagar era now with another band like the Circle, it seems like, no matter what song we play, it’s a hit as soon as you kick it off. … ‘Best of Both Worlds’ was never a single, [but] the audience is singing it like it was a No. 1 hit. They don’t sing any more with the No. 1 hit ‘Why Can’t This Be Love’ – it’s like they’re all hits. It’s awesome.”
