Sammy Hagar’s Biggest Inspiration | Paul Shaffer Plus One

This is why Sammy’s voice is as great as it is!

It’s clear that Sammy Hagar has his own special sound, but who inspired him to create it? When he was a kid he listened to some of the greatest soul singers including Sly and the Family Stone, Wilson Pickett, Tower of Power, and James Brown and his first thought was, “I want to sing like that”. The most important person on that list of influences was the Godfather of Soul himself, James Brown, and of course, his exceptional signature scream. Hear more about his inspirations, how he feels about the resurgence in rock music, and his experiences in Montrose. Tune in to Paul Shaffer Plus One this Sunday at 8/7c on AXS TV!
