    Yes, he's said it on the VHND Napster is hurting my record sales.

    What do you folks think can Napster hurt Sammy???

    In my opinion Napster isn't hurting anybody, and is Sammy's record just a poor piece of shit, of course no one would buy it.

    I think the percentage of people downloading the CD off Napster arnt even a blip on the record sales radar screen.

    If Sammy thinks hundreds of thousands of fans are downloading his new album well.... enough to hurt his sales he is dreaming.

    Sammy isn't dreaming but he's paranoid.
    The guy should be locked up in a mental institution.

    Let me say a few things in Sammy's defense:

    He isn't a 21 year-old object of teenage girls' affection and isn't getting any publicity from MTV and hardly any young people even know that he exists. About the Napster thing: by not knowing how many people have downloaded his new album, saying it's not Napster's fault is just as valid of an explanation as saying that the music was just shitty.

    I downloaded all 11 songs weeks before it's release and I got rid of them right when I bought one of the 25,061 copies that were sold. And I also can't wait to see Sammy later this month during the Ten 13 tour.

    I agree with the last post. With all the horseshit they're calling music getting all the attention, how can a great musician like Sammy get any PR for his new releases or any other good rock band before the 90's turned everything into crap. And for those that said Sammy was a piece of shit. Go Fuck yourselves!!!

    Sammy is doing fine, his albums are selling out where I live.

    I even heard him say on a radio interview that stores were asking for re-orders after the first day.


    I beleive Napster hurt his sales a bit, but nothing major.

    Sammy's new album is one of the greatest albums I have ever bought!!!

    It's better than VH 3 and DLR Band!

    I think for Sam to say napsters costing him major sales is drawing a pretty long bow - Sams probably more napsterproof than most artists, given his fan base is pretty hardcore - also theres no real figures available to suggest napsters actually cost record copanies money (yet), sales of cds keep climbing. Ultimately most of my mp3s are simply things i wouldnt have paid for anyway, napster or no napster. I would just go without!

    Unfortunately Sam hasnt had a solo hit for several years, and that means his record sales will probably keep dwindling. Not terribly fair given the 'talent' of those scoring big hits these days, but it's the way it works it IMHO

    Yoh, Mister bigdogdo, i don't call anybody a shithead on VH forumsmembers, i mean if someone replies I respect the meaning of the one who write, but my personal opinion of Sammy is that he is full of shit, we all are here on this forum because of the mighty Van Halen, we are fans to the bone, Van Halen for all, and the rest we just put them into a dumbster.

    Waiting for the return of the Mighty Van Halen with DLR.

    If you're on this forum because you're waiting for the reuturn of VH, why put down Sammy? At least he's making music. Have you ever heard of "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all"?

    I believe Sammy's album is distributed by BMG. If that's the case he should be getting a payoff from Napster soon enough.

    To mister CyrBuzz, hey don't blame the 90's, good old rock 'n roll never dies, and the true Sammy fans will buy the album, don't blame the media for bad selling.

    And dude i'll not fuck myself and I still believe that Sammy is full off shit, you wanna know why??. Because he let the media believe that without Mr.(Red Sucker)Hagar VH is nothing, that's why I call Mr. Hagar a piece off shit.

    To Mister Goo, yeah man you hit the bull by the balls.
