    Sure is possible.
    That would sure as shit piss off many here. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
    Eddie & Sammy parted ways because, and (I'm only going by whats reported) Eddies frustration with Sammy not wanting to do a geatest hits album.
    It was Ray Daniels that got them into the sucky deal with WB. I bet Ray was trying to push Sammy out because he saw him as his only adversary in the group.
    Eddie should have just done a greatest hits album 1978-1984 with no new songs with Dave on it then. There must be a thousand unreleased songs that they could have put on it as something new to help sell an album with songs that most people already had on it.

    I can see why Sammy put out greatest hits (solo) albums. Its because most fans only heard the hits that got airplay. He didn't have anywhere near the sales VH did, so he packaged all those "hits" on one album for his fans to enjoy.

    There does seem to be too much un-repairable damage between Ed & Dave to last. They can try to reconcile all they want, but if all can't be happy why continue? They don't owe US anything. They have allready given us copious amount of great music. But what they do owe us in sort is just an explanation of what is going on.
    If its Dave great, If its Sammy great, if its singer #4 oh well, if its goodbye, then how about one last show for HBO.

    Sending this over to the Speculations forum. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Just my opinion but no, if Sammy wanted to be back he would be back. Sammy is happy where he is.

    No... Sammy did the greatest hits thing because he HAD TO. It was part of his Geffen deal, he owed them the album. Not that big of a deal for me and neither for Sammy back then I think, but obviously for Ed. Sam didn't even get any money from the album sales. All the money went to his greedy ex-wife.

    the razor article keeps ringing in my head... "If they come down here (Cabo) unannounced and we jam for a week just as friends......." and so on. He said if the magic was there he would consider it. I don't think he would commit to multiple albums or tours, but thats getting a bit ahead. And as far as the apology issue. We really have no idea whether or not it came already.... I wouldn't be surprised if Mike was scale tipper on this, but I don't think he is purposely going into this project just to pull Sammy back to the VH fold.

    Maybe, but mark my words, Eddie is too proud to give Sammy that apology he's looking for. Plus, Sammy's busy doing his own thing with the Waboritas. I don't think Sammy really has any interest in doing another album with VH. And I wouldn't either if I were screwed over the way he was.
