Shocking Revelations

With the ongoing pandemic putting a halt on all entertainment for the time being, with health experts predicting large gatherings like concerts wouldn't return until fall 2021, this is obviously leaving some artists a little antsy. One such artist is Sammy Hagar, who is willing to risk it all to get things going again, for the good of the country.

Sammy Hagar is 72 years of age, which decidedly puts him in the high-risk group for getting COVID-19 and not being able to recover from it. But in a recent statement to Rolling Stone, in a feature about how artists are dealing with their new reality, Sammy is willing to sacrifice his life so that everybody can go back to work.

"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. We have to save the world and this country from this economic thing that’s going to kill more people in the long run. 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. I’m not going to go around spreading the disease. But there may be a time where we have to sacrifice. I mean, how many people die on the Earth every day? I have no idea. I’m sorry to say it, but we all gotta die, man."

Do you agree with Sammy's take? Are you in a high-risk group willing to risk it to see the Red Rocker play live?
