    Default Long Interview with Sam

    Hey All - I didn't see this posted...sorry if I missed it some place. This was put up at redrocker.com on 8/3/05****

    Sammy’s KNBR (San Francisco) interview will air this Friday, August 5th.
    likely during the 7am hour.
    *It's supposed to be a long interview...listen up!***

    *****

    Long interview? Could spell trouble...or maybe Sam's been feeling some heat for recent comments and will open the door for more work with VH?

    A tad harsh, but perhaps true. I'd like Sam to remove the "public Sam" persona for just one interview...and stop speaking in generalities...Tell us what the problem was with Ed and you...what specifically are you guys so pissed at each other for? Don't tell me Ed doesn't like having fun, or that he is bitter...that's too general..give me an example of something you guys have been disagreeing on.

    I have a feeling this will be a must listen, that Sam is going to tell it how it is from his point of view and what his long term plans are. We will probably get a good picture of whether Van Halen will continue with Sam as a viable rock band based upon this interview.

    Maybe he will just talk about his clubs, tequila, studios, and the Wabos, but an hour is a long time for an on air interview and I just don't see how he can get away from talking a lot about Van Halen. That is what most of the people care about, not the Wabos.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    who is conducting it?
    is it a publicity sitting or an informational interview?

    If Sam isnt candid about VH, Ed and their future together..specifically, "IT's about time..we're gonna make it up to you big time", then i will slowly have him fade from my daily consciousness into "past history"...

    I agree, who really cares about what Sam is up to unless it`s Van Halen related, same with Dave, they both have to bring up Van Halen in some way or another or people would chance the dial. I`m sure Sam will do the same old thing:

    -I am fun, Ed is not
    -I wanted lower ticket prices from the get go, Ed didn`t
    -I wanted to do a box set of ALL new material, Ed didn`t
    -I wanted to change the setlist each night, Ed didn`t
    -I wanted to keep the tour going for 10 years, Ed didn`t
    -Ed has a huge ego, I don`t
    ...etc,etc..

    If Sam was smart he'd just mention that he had some issues with Ed and that it wasn't that great on a personal level, but on stage, being with the VH fans again was awesome and a real pleasure to rock out it.

    As far as ticket prices go, I got my $175 worth for my 4-Star, no need to revisit that topic.
    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

    LOL, Pert, have you not been reading the interviews the last few weeks, he has been candid about Ed, VH and the tour and the future of VH if Ed sobers up.

    If Sam talks about Eddie again, then expect this thread to be 10 pages of people crying about Sam:

    "Sam needs to shut the fuck up"

    "Sam shouldn't talk about Eddie" (unless it's something positive that I want to hear)

    "Sam is just trying to come across as the good guy"

    "Sam should quit pimpin his tequila, how dare he promote his business"

    "Fuck Sammy for saying he wants give free shows, what an asshole"



    I'm not expecting any earth shattering VH news. Maybe he will surprise us but I doubt it.

    I'd actually rather hear that than an hour's summary of what we've been hearing from him over the past few weeks.

    I could give two shits if he pisses all over Ed. Damn, I'm sure Ed is a pain in the ass! What I really want him to say is that if they ever work together again he plans to put a great deal more time and effort into his contribution to the band, i.e the lyrics......He can bitch and moon all he wants. Just back up his claim of "Being Prepared" next time around.

    Yes, click the "Listen Now" link(s). Also, it appears that this interview has already happened, since they have a photo of Sam and Ronnie Montrose online already...

    yeah, i been reading the sammy Wabo commercials, i mean interviews!!
    It's all obvious and predictable what he says..maybe that's the true extent of it as well.
    But if he has already covered it all recently, then what the hell is he doing giving an hour long interview for? re-hash the same old? or is it to really pimp the Hagar Empire?
    Can we blame him for living the American Dream?
    hell no.
    But dont tell me you're making it up to me with 3 new songs and a one-off tour and then tell me Eddie sucks, etc! If Sam is so smart in business, then he is smart in relationships..
    if he's smart in relationships, then he's a good judge of people and/or character...it's a requirement, a pre-requisite if you will, to having that talent for business and people..
    ..and if Sammy has that, then he KNEW Ed and his conditions and vulnerabilities and buttons, etc, an hour after he got back with him.
    If he knew that then and he's saying all of this now, then i have no choice but to conclude that he did it all for publicity for his Empire..And that's just not good enough for the mighty VH
