Van Halen Says It Took Six Months to Write 'Right Now'

June 4, 2019

During a recent interview with Ultimate Classic Rock Nights radio show, Sammy Hagar intimated why it took Van Halen six months to create their iconic song 'Right Now.'

“I was writing those lyrics at the starting of the recording process. “Every day I’d walk in the studio and Eddie would be playing this piano part, and he'd be saying, ‘Hey, this is a cool part,’ and I’m going, ‘Ah, I ain’t hearin’ it.’ So we’d move on and start writing all the other songs. I’d be singing to him, ‘I got this idea, “Right now!” … a melody like that,’ and he’s going, ‘Yeah, I’ll think, I’ll think of something.’
