Sammy Hagar streams video for cover of David Bowie classic Heroes

Sammy Hagar & The Circle are streaming a new video for a cover of the 1977 David Bowie classic, “Heroes”, as featured on their newly-released album, “Lockdown 2020.”

"David Bowie's 'Heroes' is one of my favorite songs ever,” says Hagar, “and a chance to tip our hat to all those frontline workers on every level from the grocery stores, to the policeman and firefighters, doctors etc. that put their own lives at risk & do their jobs to help others. For us it kind of sums up 2020, the whole year. And to release it so close to his birthday and passing just makes it that more special."

The project presents songs featured in the group’s “Lockdown Sessions” series, which saw Hagar, guitarist Vic Johnson, bassist Michael Anthony and drummer Jason Bonham record virtual video performances of classic tracks in isolation from their own homes.

The series featured 2020 versions of tunes originally done by The Who, Van Halen, Bob Marley, AC/DC and others.

All proceeds from the band’s version of "Heroes" will be donated to food banks across America.
