Over at Blabbermouth, Sammy Hagar gives some background into his live shows and how they’re akin to the Dead and Phish shows of years past…

Q: In recent years, your live shows have taken on a life of their own and become events ala shows by the GRATEFUL DEAD and PHISH.

Sammy Hagar: I think I’ve grown into that and I don’t know how or why. I’ve never been influenced by THE DEAD or PHISH or JIMMY BUFFETT or those people that do the same thing. But I just fell into it myself. I’ve been friends with the guys in THE DEAD and have jammed with them two or three times.

Dude, who’s got my B&P of the famous Hagar/Dead jam sessions? Is this for real?
