    Sam knows his way around the guitar . I love the twin outro on One Way To Rock from LWAN show .

    Yeah, Sam's very blues-based, but he does what he does well.

    He gave props to Ed several years ago--probably just a couple years out from the breakup in '96--for being influencial in his own guitar playing. He said just being around Eddie made him a better player.

    No doubt about being around Eddie making him better . I like the Montose album with Bad Motor Scooter and Make It Last etc . did Sam play guitar on that record ? some good stuff with Ronnie Montrose .

    I don't believe he did; I think that was part of the reason he left Montrose (frustration and not being able to have a creative guitar playing outlet)

    "Finish What Ya Started" (the acoustic on the right side) and electric on "A Apolitical Blues." That's it outside of the live stuff. The OU812 albums didn't give specific instrument credits--just "All Songs Written & Performed by Eddie, Alex, Sammy, Mike"--probably because they didn't want to confuse people and/or piss off some who might think it absurd that Sammy play guitar on a VH album.

    I think Sam is an above average guitar player, but mine is an untrained ear.

    What do the guitar players on this board say? I am truly curious...I work with a pretty good guitar player, and he doesn't even want to have that conversation, but I have to believe the guy has never seen Sammy do his thing live.

    I would never qualify him as a "shredder" and I do believe it's obvious that Ed is better, but Sam is still a very good player. He can do some great lead licks and he is a very, very good rythm player. I'd say he's better than most of today's guitar players for sure.
