Recently talking with Forbes, Sammy Hagar said that he wasn’t that prolific during the pandemic.
“I have a million ideas. But I’m having a hard time with lyrics because I’m not a negative person and there’s so many negative things. It seems like a negative time and I don’t like to write about that. I really don’t like writing about being locked down. So with my band we did the ‘Lockdown Sessions’ of cover songs, one new song. And that’s about as creative as I’ve been on that level.
“What I’ve done is I’ve turned this time off into being able to deal with all of my different business ventures that sometimes get neglected. Other people have to do the work. They call me up and say, ‘What do you want to do about this?’ I say, ‘I don’t know. I don’t have time for that.’ ‘Then why’d you start the damn business?’
‘Cause I’m an idiot.’ [Laughs] You give me five minutes off and I start a new business. So I really have been massaging all those things and being able to do stuff like this for Beach Bar Rum and for my Santo Tequila and for my Cabo Wabo Cantina. All these places needed attention. I really focused and have got so much done. [But] I’m so happy to start touring again and tell all these people, ‘I don’t have time for that today. I got a show tonight.'”
