    They did it on the 5150 tour. Not sure how often, but they played it on in the show that was filmed for Live Without A Net in New Haven.

    Interesting note, I saw an interview with actor Jon Voight once, and it was his brother who wrote Wild Thing.

    Thanks Glenn!

    Do you know why they didn't put it on the LWAN video? It seems odd they would play Wild Thing and Rock N Roll in the same show seeing how they are both covers!!

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I don't know why Wild Thing isn't on the video, but I'm not a big fan of that song so it doesn't bother me too much.

    I don't think it's that surprising about having two cover tunes in one show on the 5150 tour. Being the first tour with Sammy, they didn't want to rely on Dave era stuff, and they only had the 9 songs on 5150 available, so to make a 90 minute show, they had to get songs from somewhere.

    Yeah but they also played 2 songs from Sam's solo career, 2 from classic VH era, and 2 solos which are pretty long, plus the 9 songs on 5150!

    But did they do all 9 songs from 5150? I don't remember them doing INSIDE when I saw them in 86'. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't remember it.

    If they ever did Inside live, I would love to hear how they pulled that off. I'm pretty sure they didn't, but Glenn will know. Out

    If T5 says they never did Inside live, I'm putting my nickel on him being right.
