Sammy Hagar Says “Record Business Is Kind Of Done” And Maybe Chickenfoot Too

In an exclusive interview with Nik Carter, singer Sammy Hagar talks about why the future of supergroup Chickenfoot may be in peril thanks to the changes in the music business. “When you spend a half million dollars on a record and it sells 125,000 records, I’m sorry, that’s pay to play.” said the Red Rocker, who also spoke candidly about how his age effects the commitments he is willing to make. “Everything I do now is…I’m looking at this could be my last year of this” he said, adding “I’m trying to pick and choose everything I do and make it more special. For me.”

Carter caught up with the former Van Halen and Montrose singer backstage at the Classic Rock Roll of Honour ceremony presented by Classic Rock magazine. You can watch video of the full video below and go to VH1 Classic On Tap for more exclusive interviews with the greatest names in classic rock.
