“Right Now” is one of the most iconic songs of the ‘Van Hagar’ era.

But Sammy Hagar says it took more than half a year for the song to finally come together.

Hagar recounted the story in a radio interview, saying Eddie Van Halen had written the piano part, but he and Hagar couldn’t agree on a vocal melody.

He says it was “four months, five months, six months later” when he finally came up with a melody that works. He called the song “one of our most adventurous pieces”.
