    A question to think of. Do you think that Sammy could and will be committing career suicide? I say this because you have alot of die hard "old" VH fans out there who are gonna go to the show and totally be there for Dave and this might go against Sammy? I hope this doesn't happen but it could. What do you all think?

    Personally, I don't see this happening. The whole show will be about a good time, party vibe. The crowd will be older per captia, me thinks, than your "1984" or "5150" crowd was. Anyone who heckles either singer will look foolish IMO. And both singer's careers can only be helped by this move, I think. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    The only people who even know that Dave is still alive are Dave fanatics. The rest of the world, however, knows about Sammy. Dave's fans will be like the losers in high school, the ones always holding up the walls while everyone else has a good time.

    I think this is an interesting theory. It seems like a lot of DLR fans feel like they HAVE to vocally dislike Sammy, whereas Sammy fans seem very willing to enjoy DLR's music for what it is. I can see a bunch of Roth fans trying to prove their loyalties by being jerks towards Sammy.

    Good topic for the Opinions/Speculation forum, so I'm going to send it over there now. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Oh, no possible "jerks" on the "Red" side of the fence, of course, Glenn?

    I rest my case.

    Roth fans are BY FAR the more sensitive group of fans. If you think Dave fans are, as a group, more open to change than Sammy fans, you badly need to get some more oxygen to the brain. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    FORD, are you paying attention at all? You and I are discussing the difference between Sammy fans and Dave fans, and you come out with the above comment? Try to focus, I didn't say jack shit about Eddie fans, that has nothing to do with what we're disagreeing about.

    Sammy's not committing career suicide, because a) no one cares about this tour other than us, and b) he's 54 and his career is winding down anyway.

    That remains to be seen - not saying you're wrong, but there seemed to be some heavyweight names interested in the tour. Azoff and Kalodner were supposedly at the press conference.

    I think there's enough interest (even if it's morbid curiosity) to make it pretty successful. Woke up this morning to a long segement on NYC radio about the tour - comments and soundbites from the PC.


    and b) he's 54 and his career is winding down anyway.

    Bottom line is this:

    Assuming the profits from the tour are split 50/50, even if 90% of every crowd is Dave fans that leave when Dave is done, Sammy still pockets a higher amount than if he played alone. Plus, some of the venues already announced are areas Sammy hasn't been playing in as a solo artist, which means the deal works him into areas he otherwise would ignore.

    Sammy profits from this, because all Sammy should care about (aside from the bottom line) is that Sammy fans get to see him.

    I would say that personally I'm a bit more of a Sammy fan than Dave overall, but VH with Dave was better. I'll agree with the fact that most people outside the VH community doesn't realize that Dave is still doing anything. Sam has had a lot better luck with his solo efforts than Dave has. I think that this tour will help both, it's all about the money and the fans to these guys, but there is nothing wrong with that IMO, I'm looking forward to it!!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
