Sammy Hagar reminisces back to time when Van Halen appeared in Hank Williams Jr. video in 1986
Former Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar shared an interesting tidbit with respect to Van Halen‘s history as the line-up of Hagar, guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alex Van Halen and bassist Michael Anthony all appeared in Hank Williams Jr.‘s video for the song “My Name Is Bocephus” back in 1986.
Wikipedia states the following in part about Hank Williams Jr. (with slight edits): “Randall Hank Williams (born May 26, 1949), known professionally as Hank Williams Jr., or alternatively as “Bocephus”, is an American country music & southern rock singer-songwriter and musician. His musical style is often considered a blend of Southern rock, blues, and country. He is the son of country music singer Hank Williams, the half-brother of Jett Williams, and the father of Hank Williams III, Holly Williams, Hilary Williams, Sam Williams and Katie Williams.”
The following message was posted on Hagar‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“Not a lot of people know that in 1986 Van Halen were part of a Hank Williams Jr music video. It was a cool tune and a crazy scene. Alex had just shaved his head, me and Mikey were shooting it like a cue ball – we all had a blast! #TBT
