Sammy Hagar And The Circle pay their tribute to the late Little Richard in their latest installment of the group’s “Lockdown Sessions” series.

Sammy Hagar And The Circle perform a version of Richard’s 1957 single, “Keep A-Knockin'” in honor of the legendary rock pioneer, who recently passed away due to bone cancer in Nashville, TN last May 9 at the age of 87.

“I had the hardest time with this one because every time I came in singing, I started singing Led Zeppelin ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’!,” says Hagar. “It took me three damn takes. My favorite drummer and my favorite singer of all time – love this one hope you do too. Long live the music of John Bonham and Little Richard!”

The group’s previous performance for their Lockdown Sessions featured an original jam, “Funky Feng Shui,” and classic hits by The Who, Van Halen, Bob Marley, AC/DC, and Buffalo Springfield.

Sammy Hagar And The Circle recently canceled their plans for a US summer tour due to the coronavirus pandemic; their three-month series will kick off on July 9 with guests Night Ranger in West Palm Beach, FL.
