    Sammy is Hurtin', Guys

    I've noticed this since the NASCAR I Can't Drive 55 performance. Sammy's voice is shot lately. He was ill for the Tahoe show over Cinco de Mayo as we all know...listen to recording of him over the last few appearances, such as his accoustic show...

    I wonder just how sick he was? To me it sounds like it could have been serious, because he's been having trouble.

    Before Roth guys get on me about me not getting on Sam for his shitty singing lately...the man has a track record for singing very well.

    I'm concerned, to be honest.

    Be careful not to sound alarms too soon. Sam's probably still recovering from whatever it was that made him sick several weeks back, yeah; but if it's something more serious I'm sure he'll take care of it before the big tour this fall. And unlike almost all others who've ever been associated with VH, we can trust Sammy to come out and tell his fans what's up--if something is indeed up, that is.

    I had damage to my vocal chords ten years ago and had to have the same laser surgery that a lot of famous vocalists have had. If there's any chance Sam is dealing with something similar (doubtful, but if that's the case), it is something that one can recover from in relative short time.

    I'm sure if something major is up, Sam will let us know.

    Often when one gets sick, the voice is the last thing to come back. I notice it takes me a couple weeks after just a cold to be able to sing again. The fact that he did most a very long concert without issues is a good sign.

    the thing is sammy's voice gets better as he goes so if he has one off shows like he has chances are his voice isn't in shape yet. Listen to the secret gigs from the begining of the balance tour and then the toronto PPV and you'll see what I'm talking about. Sammy once said he basically has to go out blow out his voice a couple of times and then it starts to get into shape. If he's doing one off's he's probably not working to hard to get "in shape" for the shows....he'll be fine, he might not be able to hit the notes in Dreams anymore but he'll be fine.
