Sammy Hagar once said there's only way to rock. According to a new interview, that includes rocking until you drop. Even if it means rocking until literally dropping dead from COVID-19.

"I’ll be comfortable playing a show before there’s a vaccine, if it’s declining and seems to be going away," Hagar told Rolling Stone in a story featuring longtime musicians talking about life without live concerts in face of the current pandemic. "I’m going to make a radical statement here. This is hard to say without stirring somebody up, but truthfully, I’d rather personally get sick and even die, if that’s what it takes," Hagar revealed.

"We have to save the world and this country from this economic thing that’s going to kill more people in the long run," Hagar added. "I would rather see everyone go back to work. If some of us have to sacrifice on that, OK. I will die for my children and my grandchildren to have a life anywhere close to the life that I had in this wonderful country. That’s just the way that I feel about it. I’m not going to go around spreading the disease. But there may be a time where we have to sacrifice. I mean, how many people die on the Earth every day? I have no idea. I’m sorry to say it, but we all gotta die, man."
