    Aren't there any 1970's interviews of Dave and Sammy mentioning each other. It seems to me that these guys were aware of each other in the 70's, and being in a very similar genre of music, they might have mentioned one another. Obviously Dave was aware of Sammy since VH did Make it Last early on.

    Tonight I heard some live bootleg Montrose from 1974 (thanks B.W. Loons) and Sammy had some real soul in his voice back then, more than he had with VH in my opinion. Wouldn't Dave have been a fan of that?

    And Sammy being a singer/guitarist, surely he was aware of VH from the get go. Wouldn't he have been a fan of Dave's bluesy vocals and party attitude?

    Anyway, not knowing what would happen in the mid 80's, couldn't these guys have been fans of each other at some point? Neither would ever admit it now of course, but I wonder.

    I've read things where Eddie said Dave used to talk a lot shit about Sammy. According to Ed, he ran into Sam at some kind of festival (Texas Jam maybe), Ed walked over & introduced himself & told him he dug his Montrose stuff & so on. According to Ed, Dave said something to the effect of 'Fuckin' Asshole, he ain't got shit on me.' Ed said it was probably 'cause of jealousy.

    I don't know, I wasn't there so I'm not sure how accurate that is.
    But I remember reading that a couple of times. Does anybody else remember reading anything like that?

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I do, except this is on cassette. I don't know how (and likely don't have the equipment) to mp3 something off a cassette. If you're interested in a copy, email me Goo.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Yeah, I remember reading that. That was probably at the Anaheim Stadium show that Sammy and VH both played in September of 1978.

    ...and there's that ATBL demo out there where Al and Mikey play a lil' o' Rock Candy before those gettin' all hectic ain't talkin' style...I dig that 'Trose live jive! It cracked me up during that How Many More Times blues jam where Sammy says somethin' like,"It's all new to me,"--remindin' me of the YRGM/Cabo jive. Did ya catch Ronnie's Stones references? Maybe a lil' Sing this song together?
