Singer Sammy Hagar told The San Diego Union-Tribune that he can still sing every song he has ever written and he has no plans to retire.
“I can still sing every song I ever wrote. I put them in a lower key now, and tune down a whole step, not a half step, which is my advice to anybody with semi-perfect pitch… I have good pitch and I know when I’m off. I told somebody recently: ‘I don’t know how much longer I can do this and still be good.’
”Because I don’t need money … it’s not my motivation anymore. It was when I was young. But now, I’m just motivated by doing cool things that excite me, and music still does that … If I couldn’t sing well, I would not do that my fans. Ticket prices are so high that, if I wasn’t good, I wouldn’t do that to people. I will not embarrass myself, or my fans, or my family. But, right now, I’m as strong as a horse, man!”
