    Kinda sounds like Michael Anthony. That would make sense too.

    I don't remember this guy at any of the Sammy shows. I've heard him on different boots, but don't remember him at the shows I seen. I might have been too jazzed to notice though...

    For some reason, Rudy Leiren comes to mind.

    I think Glenn may have hit the nail on the head with Guitar Tech Rudy Lieren.

    they definitely have to have that guy when they tour again.
    on a semi-related topic, one of the dj's on a radio station here always yells out,
    "VAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAN HAAAAAAALEN" whenever a he plays a vh tune, with a pretty long intro, usually panama.
    i always dig it when he does that.

    I did see on Brad's site earlier today that Rudy left in 1985 and came back - I forget when, but if it was Rudy Lieren doing the intro, that would explain why you didn't hear it during the Sammy years.
