    Default Wow, Sammy's new single is #1?

    I haven't even heard it.
    #1 on the Mediabase Classic Rock charts.
    I'm not giving a link to the news, but it's on the Redrocker.com front page. I know most everyone has it bookmarked.

    Wow. If this turns out to be an actual big hit eventually, The Halens are crazy if they don't call Sammy and kiss a little ass to get him back in the studio to follow up on that success.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    What or who is the "Mediabase Classic Charts"? Is that like those ads for movies where they mention critics no one has ever heard of. "Chuck Webster of the Akron Bugle says it's a must see!"

    If Chuck Webster says it's good, I'll definitely go see the movie.

    Mediabase is one of the three main charts radio stations use to adjust their playlists by. If Mediabase puts it at #1, then you can be rest assured that stations are playing it.

    Can't say I've ever heard of Mediabase, but it looks like 1500 stations around the US, send it their playlists to these cats. Certain stations fit into certain catergories and certain tunes fit into those catergories.

    Looks like Sams's tune is doing well on the "Classic Rock" stations, but it ends there.

    Are stations playing the new? Sure, a few classic rock stations that feature new tunes from classic artists. It's safe to say you have a better chance at hearing UFB than Sam's new tune.

    Charts can be deceiving. If the song doesn't fit into the active rock catergory, tunes can find another chart that will make their impact on radio airplay much more impressive to the general public.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Just went to the website, didn't see Sammy's song listed but it was a pretty cool site. They have a list of the top 1000 songs played on classic rock radio last week and VH and Sammy are all over it:

    54 You Really Got Me
    59 Runnin With the Devil
    107 Panama
    173 Jump
    192 Dance the Night Away
    199 Jamie's Cryin
    218 Pretty Woman
    287 I Can't Drive 55
    323 Dancing in the Streets
    337 Aint Talkin Bout Love
    341 And the Cradle Will Rock
    370 Hot For Teacher
    387 I'll Wait
    409 Beautiful Girls
    430 Finish What Ya Started
    437 Unchained
    506 Why Can't This Be Love
    507 Eruption
    599 There's Only One Way to Rock
    640 Dreams
    647 Ice Cream Man
    663 Right Now
    673 Everybody Wants Some
    676 Heavy Metal
    731 When It's Love
    736 Drop Dead Legs
    755 Best of Both Worlds
    790 Feel Your Love Tonight
    819 Intruder
    962 Mas Tequila
    963 Your Love is Driving Me Crazy

    26 VH tracks and 5 Sammy solo,(sorry no Dave) out of the top 1000.
    Pretty cool, just wished my local stations played even half those songs.

    Well, I'm sure Intruder is on there simply because it's the intro to Pretty Woman. I don't think stations are playing it as a stand alone track.

    Can't Stop Loving You?????

    The last time I heard that played on a station was back in '95.

    It isn't even in the top half of Hagar's best material with the band.
