    How Sammy Hagar Inspired the Clash’s ‘Safe European Home’

    Sammy Hagar is a California guy whose music generally exemplifies good-time rock ‘n’ roll, and the Clash made a name for themselves with raw, eclectic recordings often informed by weightier topics. You wouldn’t necessarily think the two acts shared a lot of creative DNA, in other words, but as it turns out, one of the Clash’s earliest songs was heavily inspired by a Hagar hit.

    Dangerous Minds reminds us that in his book In the Fascist Bathroom: Punk in Pop Music, 1977-1992, rock writer Greil Marcus recalled hearing the Clash’s Give ‘Em Enough Rope LP as a work in progress — and shared his disdain for what he viewed as the sanitizing influence of producer Sandy Pearlman, who edited out the main riff at the center of their song “Safe European Home.”

    Pearlman didn’t deduct the riff for no reason. As Marcus noted, the band had been recording in the Bay Area at a time when the live version of Hagar’s “I’ve Done Everything for You” was all over the radio; after marinating in the song for weeks, guitarist Mick Jones was moved to repurpose it for his own devices. “Pearlman erased the riff from the final master, fearing it would sound like a cheap cop,” wrote Marcus, “and thus erased the voice of the tune.”

    While its regional hit status had an impact on the recording of Give ‘Em Enough Rope, Hagar’s version of the song failed to gain much traction outside the Bay Area. It wasn’t until 1981 that a mainstream audience would hear that distinctive riff — courtesy of Rick Springfield, who scored a hit single with the cover he recorded for his Working Class Dog LP.

    Sammy Hagar: Van Halen Reunion ‘Not On His Bucket List’

    Despite going out of his way this past year to push the subject of a Van Halen reunion tour featuring Michael Anthony along with sets by both him and David Lee Roth — Sammy Hagar is putting the idea to rest. Hagar is currently on the road with the Circle, which consists of Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham, and guitarist Vic Johnson. The group plays songs from all eras of its members’ lives, including tracks from Van Halen and Led Zeppelin.

    Hagar spoke about his regrets regarding Van Halen, telling Newsday, “The last thing I want to do is have one of us, that are still alive and able to do something, die and then go, ‘I wish we would have got together one more time.’ The Van Halen thing I think is a dead horse. Honestly, I’m so busy and occupied with everything else in my life that it’s not on my front burner where every day I’m checking my email. It’s not on my bucket list.”
