    Is there any left over Live Without A Net footage out there anywhere that has Jump?? I think it would have been cool to see Eddie playing Jump on the keyboards during the 5150 tour.

    I have no idea about that, but in a semi related point, I just got a bootleg the other day from the 5150 tour which has Sammy picking a drunk guy out of the crowd to sing Jump with him. All the way back to 1986 I had read about them doing that in the Circus and Hit Parader magazines, but never heard it for myself. The guy actually didn't do too bad, but it was disappointing to hear them do that frankly. I guess for them it was all in fun, but to me it was just disrespectful of the song.

    Which 5150 show are you referring to Glenn?? I have the one from Toronto, but haven't listened to it all because I heard it was supposed to be pretty good sounding but when I got it found out it wasn't as good as expected.

    It's from the Rosemont Horizon in Illinois from (I think) April of 1986.

    Blame Sambo for doing that. Yeah, it was disrespectful of the song and to DLR. Sam just had a thing up his ass for not wanting to sing "Jump".

    I mean, ya come into VH after they had their biggest hit and ya don't expect to sing the song? I'm not sure what Sam was thinking.

    He did, however, get more comfortable with singing "Jump" by the FUCK tour. Even then, Mike used to sing the second verse to the song with Sam because Sam still had problems singing it (as in he just didn't want to).

    Unfortunately, I think there's plenty of blame to go around for the Jump thing. I guess it just goes to show how much bitterness there was towards Dave after he left.

    You would think that Sammy would have wanted to distance himself from it; he didn't even know DLR, so why get into a pissing match with him. And VH themselves should have said, "if we can't be proud of Jump and do it well, let's not do it at all". I didn't see the 5150 tour, but I think I would have rather come home disappointed that they didn't do Jump than pissed off that they used it as a way to slam Dave.
