Sammy Hagar & The Circle Cover Foo Fighters In Honor Of Taylor Hawkins

The Foo Fighters were scheduled to headline two music festivals this weekend but canceled all remaining tour dates when their drummer Taylor Hawkins unexpectedly passed away in March.

Sammy Hagar & The Circle took the Foos' place at Beale Street, and paid tribute to Hawkins with a cover of "My Hero."

"When we were asked by the promoter to fill in for the Foo Fighters at the Beale Street Music Festival, my first reaction was 'No f**king way!'" Hagar confessed on Instagram. "We discussed it as a band, & we came up with 'Why not! Let's just go play music and you're at a big a** Circle party for those people, just do what we do!' Then with Dave Grohl's blessings we decided to do a broken down version of one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands. It felt appropriate. No rehearsal, After all this is rock 'n' roll and thats what it's all about."
