Last week, Sammy Hagar launched a series of premieres for “Knockdown Dragout” — the anthemic lead track from his highly-anticipated upcoming rock collaborations album, “Sammy Hagar and Friends” — with a high-octane performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Following his debut TV performance of the track, fans can now watch the video for the new single on Sammy Hagar’s official YouTube Channel: http://youtu.be/LaPBNRHUnEI.
