The Red Rocker takes the stage for a worthy cause as Sammy Hagar rolls into Los Angeles to deliver an unforgettable performance at America Salutes You: Guitar Legends II—a special benefit concert dedicated to the mental health and wellness of America’s veterans and first-responders—in an all-new episode of Rock & Roll Road Trip airing this Sunday, July 14 at 8pE.
In this exclusive first look, Sammy puts his trademark spin on The Doors’ classic “Roadhouse Blues,” joined by Doors icon Robby Krieger and Blues standout Joe Bonamassa. Sitting down with Krieger, Sammy discusses The Doors’ politically charged music that forever shaped the ‘60s. Shedding insight into the band’s songwriting and how they tackled the topics of the day, Krieger explains, “Jim used to say… to be a mirror of society. Don’t try to preach what you think it should be, but just be a mirror.” Then, Six Degrees Of Separation comes full circle when Sammy meets Joe Bonamassa for the first time, after the six-string mastermind played in a band with Sammy’s son when they were teenagers. Check it out here.
Rock & Roll Road Trip With Sammy Hagar airs every Sunday at 8pE/5pP, only on AXS TV.
