    Chalk this one up to having too much time on your hands.

    At the official Sammy site, they show the lyrics for Shag as Shimmy shimmy shake it shimmy shakin coco pop.

    And in Dave's book in the chapter called roadwork he says I'd then dance right back out on stage and do my shimmy-shimmy coco pop.

    Is that a California expression or something? I notice that Jesse Harms co-wrote Shag with Sammy and he also worked with Dave on the Eat Em and Smile album. Could Jesse have remembered that expression from Dave and thrown it into the mix later when writing with Sammy?

    Anybody????

    there is a DIGITAL UNDERGROUND song that also uses that line.
    and NELLY uses a similiar line in "COUNTRY GRAMMAR".

    i don't know if DAVE started it, but i don't think SAM ever heard DAVE say that.

    so i'd say it is a concidence.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I'd say the Yankee Rose one is cooler. I dig the bluesy stuff EVH is playing but I don't like it when Sammy screams like that.

    Pics? No I wanted you to contemplate the subtle differences between the two X's.
    I don't know what went wrong. I tried to fix it but nothing happens.

    Man, both are very cool in their own right. I love the way Ed and Sam work together on that version. By the same token, Yankee Rose is burly as hell. Which is cooler you ask? I can listen to both songs any day of the week, and get all pumped up and rockin' the house! Man, life is grand being a Van Halen freak. Out.

    I'm almost 100% positive that Sammy picture is from the MTV awards in 1992 when they won a bunch of awards for Right Now.
