    Default Sammy is happier doing the WABOS

    I think Sammy feels less pressure when he is playing with his band. Nobody expects them to set the world on fire...he gets to play a lot of his solo stuff, plus any VH he wants...he gets along real well with his band...

    He said it in the now infamous St Louis interview "I like my band better". I know he was obviously just venting, and was showing the signs of a long tour, but in my heart I really thinks he would prefer just being a solo guy...

    That doesn't mean he won't do anything with VH...he is a rock star, and craves the big crowds...bigger crowds than he gets at his solo shows...and I'm sure he will eventually accept the challenge of making a comercially viable CD and besting the #6 in tour ranking they did this year....and I think they are capable...

    But everyone talks about Ed...and I really think it has a lot to do with Sammy's timetable too...he probably went down to CABO and had no pressure, had a blast, had no bullshit to deal with...and thought "why go back to VH"...if we are lucky, his 57 yoa body still has a fire that burns...if we are unlucky, we are done with VH as we know it..

    If he was happy with the Wabo's why did he re-join Van Halen?? He didn't have too. I think Sammy is happier with the greatest band in the world VAN HALEN!!!!

    Okay.....let's take a gander at the factors here.

    Sammy: Owner of Cabo Wabo, a cash cow club in Cabo and now also owner of the Taho Wabo. Runs his own tequila empire, collects royalties from past VH songs, still touring clubs. Already vocalized his displeasure of the high tickets sales on the VH tour.

    I could research the exact figures of what he makes if you'll allow me the time, but it seems the man is RICH RICH RICH without having to tour with Halen.

    So perhaps, young man, you are the one fooling YOURself. Or maybe you just plain hate Sam and that is that. Facts are irrelevant, in that case.

    Of course he does. Sam really didn't want to play in front of those huge crowds once more (he dosen't draw the same amount solo) with some of the best musicians to ever play. He also wanted to charge more for tickets than they already were, remember?

    I heard Sam also HATES his fans with a passion and even entertained the thought of taking a bat to the skulls of all the 5-star ticket holders. He also peed on Wolfie's guitar and ordered his distillers to drop a healthy dose of monkey spunk into each bottle of Cabo from here on out.

    Some more sensitive fanboys, eh?

    I have no doubt that Sam cares about his fans. Nor do I have any doubt that he wanted to do at least one more tour with VH. Though, if you don't think Sam factored in all the extra money he'd make by touring with VH as opposed to the Wabo's, then you're as much as a fanboy as I had suspected. But hey, don't let me pop your quaint little bubbles. They fit you well.

    Though, none of this matters. I just hate Sammy and should go back to the Army, right?

    I guess you missed the part where 9 said Sammy is a millionaire many times over (which I'm sure we all coulda guessed). He couldn't have pocketed so much this tour to make that much of a difference in his bank account.

    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Let's just say that I've watched both singers very very closely. DLR was the singer of VH when I became a fan. I love the legacy he left behind. I've attended every VH show and listened to every interview I knew of. Sam's gone on record as saying that he's rich, he's glad he's rich, and he tours for fun. So, no...I don't believe money is his driving factor. As for popping anyone's 'bubble', well let's just say I think you overestimate your own prowess.

    Everyone's lifestyle is facilitated by the amount of money they make. Sam makes a ton of money, but he also leads an extravagant lifestyle. He enjoys a little extra cash just as much as you or I.

    Your assertions about Sam's intentions for touring with VH go a little beyond just having a little pocket change. Your position is that he wanted MONEY MONEY MONEY, or has that changed?

    Sam was (is) the same guy with the Wabos as he is with VH. I think people just need a different reason for him to tour with the guys other than they are the perfect rock and roll band together. I mean, there's no way they did it because they missed making the best music possible, right?

    Take a step back and gain some perspective. I'd be ashamed of making such a knee-jerk reaction like the one you made to my first post.


    Sam's gone on record as saying that he's rich, he's glad he's rich, and he tours for fun.
    Oh, he must be giving his share from the tour to charity. Right?

    As for popping anyone's 'bubble', well let's just say I think you overestimate your own prowess.
    They are quite comfortable, aren't they?

    I figured I'd ask you. You did apply the lable.
