Sammy Hagar Says He Wrote Song With Eddie Van Halen In Dream

Sammy Hagar says he’s written a new song called “Thank You” using a guitar lick that Eddie Van Halen taught him in a dream.

Talking to Ultimate Classic Rock, Hagar said, “About two months ago, I had this dream and Eddie came.” After describing the scene, he says Eddie walked in and said “Man, let’s write some music!”

Hagar says that in the dream, “he did this harmonic thing and he slid it up to a chord, like a slide guitar.” When he got out of bed the next morning, Sammy says he wrote the song. He’s not trying to cash in on Van Halen’s memory; Hagar says he’s sharing co-writing credits on the song when it’s released, with the money possibly going to charity
