Sammy Hagar Rocks Out To Honor Queen On "GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends"

Hagar pays tribute to fellow rockstar Freddy Mercury and his iconic band at the Recording Academy's 2018 Special Merit Awards recipient tribute concert that will air on PBS on Oct. 5.

Freddy Mercury, the late lead singer of Queen, was one of his generation's quintessential rockstars, with a larger-than-life persona and stage presence and an out-of-this-world vocal range to match. As the frontman of his equally legendary band Queen, he and his bandmates rocked stadiums globally throughout the '70s and '80s with hits long outlasting their reign, including "We Will Rock You," and GRAMMY-nominated classics "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Another One Bites the Dust."

On the upcoming broadcast of "GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends," Queen, a Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement recipient, will be honored by GRAMMY winner and former Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar, who will perform "We Will Rock You."
