    Default Andy Johns Interview

    Sorry to re-open a closed topic, but Andy speaks of VH and Sammy in an interview I did with him a few years back:

    Thanks for posting this Andrew. Another producer who found Sammy difficult to get along with. Everyone seems to always want to blame Ed, but it seems DLR AND Sammy really are the problem.

    Yeah. And they've been trying to get rid of Michael on and off for a long time. And I said, you're out of your fucking mind!
    But Eddie thinks he's this sort of genius who really…We'll see. Poor old Ed's been going through a lot of shit lately. Can't say anymore…
    Yeah, that Sammy sure sounds like a real shit.

    Legally speaking, could Ed even fire Al? I just always assumed they controlled VH together, as equals.

    Does Ed really have sole control?

    Yeah, it's all the singers, they are the whole problem. Nobody but the singers.

    Interesting interview, it's very strange to read he fired Alex for a short time. They must have just had a big argument.

    Glad you enjoyed the read...Andy told me off the record (at that time) a little extra info about VH (again at that time...), so I got the impression he was still in occasional contact.

    No idea about now though.

    Maybe Andy nailed one of Sam's girlfiends.....sounds like there was a lotta sex going on after sessions. Place probably smelled nice and rank too.
