    Default Sammy's Last Song...

    We all know that Sammy is getting older and eventually will stop doing tours and probably just play his birthday bash in Cabo once a year because his voice will be shot. If I could ever ask him one question it would be "When you know it is going to be your last performance what song will you close the show with?"

    Many probably think that it would be Eagles Fly, but, I think that the song that best sums it all up is Cabo Wabo...acoustic.

    What do you think?

    That's, uh, sorta morbid.

    Gee, I wonder what will be the last riff Ed ticks out on an axe before he keels over?

    Sammy can sing his ass off, especially for a guy in his late 50's. I think he will be around for years.

    VH fans have to be the most random people at times...come on VH give us something to talk about...My bet would be on Eagles Fly, an acoustic Cabo Wabo? Maybe as one of the last songs, but not the last one. Definately would be Eagles Fly.

    What do you think?
    Why do you assume that he'll ever hang it up? I've heard Sammy say many times that he wants to be like the old bluesmen who played till the day they died. I don't see Sam ever retiring. He may not go out on the road as much but I think he'll continue to make music no matter what. Take a look at guys like Jagger and Richards, Bob Dylan, etc. They're all well into their 60's and still doing it. Rock and Roll knows no age in my opinion. I'll be 75, if I make it that far, with Fair Warning blasting in the backyard at 3 am! By the way, if there ever was a "last song", it would definitely have to be Red. I don't know about you, but I hate Eagles Fly the way its done now. I haven't heard Sam, or VH, do that tune properly in years. It needs the full band, just Sammy solo on that one doesn't do much for me.

    How about a cover of "Goodbye to You" by Scandal?

    My guess would be "Red".

    Pretty stupid topic

    The guy is almost 60. I think he's in his prime. Sings better than Jagger, Dylan and the like. Van Morrison is the exception. Sam is no where near to retiring. Why don't you ask this about D.L. Roth,EMT? Drink a bottle of Cabo and enlighten yourself.

    I agree with all of you that it will be a while before he hangs it up. There will be a show whether he be, 75 or 85 like John Lee Hooker. I just think when that time comes he will "know" that it is probably his last show. And Yes, Dave's last show should have been a while ago. I saw him on New Years in Orlando, his band was unreal, close your eyes and its Van Halen. Dave spoke all of the high notes and most of the words.
