Sammy Hagar Likens His Son Andrew’s Songwriting Skills To Bob Dylan

In a recent interview with Fox News Digital, Sammy Hagar expressed his admiration for his son Andrew’s songwriting abilities and compared his style to that of Bob Dylan.

The Red Rocker said:

“Being a lyricist, the first thing I’m going to do is listen to his lyrics and say, ‘What the hell is my son — what’s he complaining about? Or what’s he trying to say here?’ You know? So a couple of songs really got my attention right away. Acoustic songs. When he first started, he was doing this acoustic thing. You know, he’s like Bob Dylan.”

Hagar then remembered one particular song called ‘The Lucky One’ from his son’s catalog:

“He had a song called ‘The Lucky One,’ and he had a lyric about something about…”

Andrew, who was also a part of the interview, stepped in:

“The angel that fell through the power lines?”

Sammy continued:

“Yeah, the angel that fell through the power lines. And I just went, ‘Whoa!’ Look, I got goosebumps just talking about it. I just went, ‘That’s so cool, you know?’ And it was a real negative meaning, ‘the lucky one.’

Like, ‘you’re going to be the lucky one to go home with me? So you’re the angel that fell through the power lines?’ But anyway, his lyrics have really, really been impressive to me.”

After being busy with a few different jobs, Andrew decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and started to work on his own music. The singer’s latest single, ‘Systematic Minds,’ arrived on May 5. A few months ago, he also released two songs to draw attention to mental health issues.
