Videos of Summer: Give to Live (1987)

After joining Van Halen, Sammy Hagar released a solo CD in 1987, which produced the single, "Give to Live". Hagar had been regarded as the total antithesis of David Lee Roth. While Roth was a ham on stage, given to camp comedy, Hagar, a veteran of nearly 20 years at this point, was far more serious.

Original MTV VJ Mark Goodman, nearing the end of his run with the channel at the time, makes a cameo to introduce the song as a young couple is watching the channel.
