    He does that helicopter sound in his solo on Live Without a Net. The one on Right Here Right Now isn't as good, well I should say, isn't as clear.

    I guess this is the perfect time for me to ask what does "bochephus" mean?

    Yeah I remember that and that's just so cool in my opinion. Kidd Rock (who I also think is incredibly cool) is good friends with Hank Jr. also. And if I'm correct, Kidd is a friend of Sammy as well. I'm a big fan of Ted Nugent and he's a pretty good friend of Sammy from what I've read and he adores Kidd Rock. Maybe because Ted and Kidd are both from Detroit! Anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say is that Sammy, Kidd Rock, Nuge, and Hank Jr. are all super cool imo! Sorry guys, I know that I really ramble!

    I'm gonna try and get the one from the Balance tour up on YouTube again. For some reason it wouldn't let me do it the first time. That's my favorite of all Alex's solos. It's got the samba beat at the end which is bad ass all the way.

    In adding to the Bocephus talk, Sammy also played lead guitar on "Almost Persuaded" - a track on Hank Williams Jr. Lone Wolf album, which came out around 1991....

    -- the "My Name is Bocephus" video which was mentioned in an earlier post is great -- the band all look to be having a great time...(doing the "5150 walk")...
