The former frontman of Van Halen and the current vocalist of both The Circle and Chickenfoot, Sammy Hagar has posted a video of himself improving over his bandmate Joe Satriani’s solo in ‘Up In Flames’ and explained the complication of playing like him while putting Robert Plant and Axl Rose on the table.

One of the greatest voices in the metal community, Sammy Hagar has played the incredible guitar solo of his friend Joe Satriani in his song, ‘Up In Flames’ from his tenth studio album, ‘Is There Love in Space?’ to support Satriani’s latest project.

On his latest tweet, Hagar has shared a short video of himself putting an amazing performance. He said in the caption that Joe having him play guitar amongst some of the greatest guitarists is like him asking Joe to sing on one of his records with Robert Plant, Stephen Tyler, and Axl Rose.

Sammy Hagar has backed up his longtime bandmate’s brand new collection, ‘Stripped x Three‘ with the surprise performance on guitar. The project of Joe Satriani features full backing tracks from the complete ‘Shapeshifting,’ ‘Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards,’ and ‘Is There Love in Space?’ albums.

Included with the music is a special digital compilation booklet with original liner notes and credits and it is all packaged within a replica Joe Satriani Ibanez signature guitar USB stick and custom case. ‘Stripped x Three’ is available to pre-order now.

Here is what Sammy Hagar said in his latest tweet on Instagram:

“Joe having me play guitar amongst some of the greatest guitarists is like me asking Joe sing on one of my records with Robert Plant, Stephen Tyler, Axl Rose….

You get the picture. When in doubt of what to do, just f***ing do it!”
