Sammy Hagar Happy 34th Anniversary to ‘I Never Said Goodbye’ – “Hands and Knees” + “Eagles Fly” – VIDEO
Sammy Hagar: Happy 34th anniversary to ‘I Never Said Goodbye’! Celebrate with the music video for “Hands and Knees”. The brain-machine was some wacky invention: you could actually lose track of time after a few minutes on this thing. Very psychedelic. I don’t know what happened to it nor that friggin telephone. This was the record I had to make in order for my record company to allow me to join Van Halen. Eddie played bass guitar & co-produced the record w/ me. It still to this day is one of my favorite solo records I ever made.
‘I Never Said Goodbye’ spent 23 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart and became his highest-charting solo album reaching #14 on the chart on August 15, 1987. The album was certified gold, selling over 500,000 copies in the US alone.
The album features Eddie Van Halen on bass guitar, he also plays during a brief section of the guitar solo on “Eagles Fly.”
The songs “Give to Live” and “Eagles Fly” were also performed live by Van Halen together with Hagar.
