Singer Sammy Hagar posted a video on his official YouTube channel where he recalled an embarrassing moment from the stage, when he tried to do the David Lee Roth jump.
Here’s what Hagar said in the video:
“Have I had any embarrassing moments on stage… me? Someone that’s been in the business for almost 50 years? Yes, sir, ma’am, I have. In Montrose, I was so green, and Edgar Winter, big superstar, dressed all in satin, got diamond and jewelry all over him, he was really into the glitter rock thing.
”He comes to the show. I meet him before the show, and I’m going, ‘Whoo,’ I’m taking a picture with Edgar Winter, I’m starstruck. In the opening song, I come out running, [imitates the melody], I go the big scream, and there was an eagle ramp that went into the audience. We were opening for somebody; it was a big show.
”I come flying on my knees into the audience, and it wasn’t like in the days when I was a superstar, and fans started grabbing me; people moved back. People weren’t even helping me to get back on stage; they were like, ‘What an idiot.’ I jumped and split my legs in the air, splits jump, my cr*tch came out of my pants, as I was not wearing underwear…”
