    Just a fuck around topic while we wait to hear anything.

    What's up with this? When Sam joined VH he was a rail. When "Balance" rolled around he blew up like a balloon. When he left VH he slimmed down again. Then "Vodoo" came and he piled all back on then some. I remember when Sam went on that god-awful abortion "Whoopie". He should have gone on "Oprah" so they could have discussed their inflation/deflation habbits.

    Sam looks great for 53, and I hope I look that good when I'm that old. But, he seems to have always contradicted himself on this fitness thing.

    When he joined VH, people coined him as a health nut, and Ed hired a personnal trainer and rode bikes with Sam. We all know about the boxing stuff too. I think for the most part Sam was pretty clean-cut in VH. He did always talk about smoking dope and getting fucked up, but I alawys thought that was more to whip up a crowd than a reflection of how he really was.

    Then comes this Tequila-sucking monster. It's like he goes back and forth from one character to the next. Cool. The dude can do whatever the hell he wants. He's filthy rich, got a hot wife and a kick-ass club. This was just food (hee-hee) for thought.

    P.S. - When Sam's second daughter turns 20, he'll be 73.

    Sammy's just having fun. I'll admit he's put on some weight since the early days, but he's been up and down a lot.

    For starters, he's getting older, and you usually put on weight with age. But if you go back to even Unboxed he was still pretty trim.

    Unfortunately that wasn't a trainer but rather Ed not hitting the bottle. He looked like he aged 20 years in the Guitar World photo shoots.

    I had the opportunity to meet him backstage on the VHIII tour later that summer and he looked much better -- best shape in a long while.

    Your answer lies within your question, Sammy's 53 years old, it get's increasing more difficult to keep weight off at that age. You don't even have to eat that much and you can pack the weight on at 53. Guys like Jagger are very rare, I swear Jagger can wear the same outfits he did on the Ed Sullivan show. He's got to be getting Lypo or something. Never seen a guy weigh in his 50's what he weighted in his 20's. Jimmy Page who was whip thin his whole life is a little "Pork Chop" at 55.The metabolism just doesn't function the way it use to.

    I thought I heard that ed's slimmed way down because he was postponing the hip surgery. The doctors told him that the less he weighed the longer he could postpone it and he could get better replacement parts for his hip after waitng a few years. Am right here? As for Sammy if I am 53 and can still be as active as him I will thank the lord above.

    It was kind of depressing to see Ed in the kind of shape he was during III. He looked like he had ten T-cells left.

    Maybe VH was never labeled a "sex appeal" (although the chicks dug Roth and Ed used to be a heart-throb. Remember 'Saved By the Bell?' That chick Jessee had Ed's picture in her locker. Before she strated doing soft-porn in awful movies.)

    I actual thought Ed looking so good and GQ on the balance tour was a big help to VH's cause. They hadn't put out any new material in four years, and I think the visual medium of M-TV gave the boys a big boost. Shit, in that CSLY video Ed looks like he could be a BackStreet Boy.

    In "Without You" he REALLY looks bad. I remember in college I wore on of those VH work shirts to school. You know, the one's that mechanics wear. It had Ed's name on it. My teacher looked at me and said, "Gee Eddie's not looking to great these days."

    Some dude next to me said "Yeah and neither is the band. They're fucking worthless!" (Cherone had just joined)

    Man, I thought Ed looked great on the III tour. And Sammy, well, living the rock and roll lifestyle, the weight is going to fluctuate now and then, no harm there.
