Sammy Hagar Wants You To Care 'Right Now'

While artists from both the blue and red side of the political spectrum line up to support their candidate of choice, SAMMY HAGAR tries to be diplomatic in the MCCAIN cappaign's use of "Right Now."
HAGAR released this statement: "When I wrote the lyrics to 'Right Now' I intended them to inspire people to not sit around and wait for something they believed in but to go out and get it -- to make a change however they needed to. Whether it was MCCAIN who used the song or if OBAMA had chosen to use the song, with the current political climate, the lyrics still have the same meaning, and we all need to do something to make a difference, every action counts. In fact, I still feel so strongly about this that I wrote a new song 'Cosmic Universal Fashion' with a young IRAQI musician in an attempt to motivate a new generation to the same affect. I am pleased to be associated with the lyrics to my original song and the new one in hopes that both will make people move to make a difference."
