    It's actually a great interview and if some people here didn't make everything out to be Dave vs. Sam, they'd get some interesting stuff from it, including Sam saying Mike isn't a songwriter, but a great bass player and singer. Gee and Sam doesn't have a grasp of reality? Whatever. People here need to just grow up.

    Since there is a ton of VH info in here, it's going in Main.

    Thanks Brett. I wasn't sure if I should put it in Main or not, given the tenor of the two open SH threads. I thought it might be putting gas on the fire. But it is a good interview.

    I love Sammy.

    Tell me that him and Mike arent the normal ones of this band, or ex band.

    Great read. Sam tells it like it is, VH needs him or Dave to be successful. Simple as that.

    One thing I questioned though, he said that his playing with Mike wasn't the cause of the problems with Ed as evidenced by the fact they wanted Mike out as far back as the 2004 tour. Obviously though, Mike played with Sam in 2002, so couldn't that still have been the root of the issue?

    It's called controversy-whoring.

    Ahhh, maybe because he begins a 60 city tour that started 9/15 but really kicks off 9/29 that was announced prior to the VH tour. Next week he begins his two week long birthday bash in Cabo. He has no control over the fact that VH is trying to piggy back on his tour ;o)

    To be fair: The interview was done a couple of weeks ago. KNAC sat on it until this week.

    I just like the fact Sammy sees it for what is and is not trying disillusion himself into believing this is 1985 again. It also good to see there is a real friendship between him and Mike.

    For the life me I just do not understand how anyone does not get along with someone like Mike. I really do believe Sam is sincere when he says Mike gives it 100% and brings that special vibe. But things change, people change, and for whatever reason Ed wants someone else. It is what it is.

    My suspicion is and always has been that Ed does not respect Mike because he just shows up and plays what Ed tells him to play, and doesn't contribute to the writing (with Sam confirming that for the first time I've ever seen). I'd love to blame it on Ray Daniels by speculating that Ray was whispering in his ear that Mike was getting paid too much for what he contributed, and that might be true, but Ed wanting to replace Mike goes back to what, 1982 or something according to Dave?

    I don't think it's anything more than Ed not having respect for Mike as a musician, which probably means he doesn't respect him as a person. Nothing else adds up to me. Ed's made comments about Mike riding coat tails, denigrating his playing by saying on the Two Dorks back in 03 that a 12 year old Wolf could play better bass, etc.

    I think you are right to a large extent. I agree whole heartedly that Ed does not now, nor has he ever really respected Mike as a musician. And whats strange is I read one of the early in EVH intervwiews on this site where he absolutely praises MA for his "playing bass" and not trying to be more than that. And he clearly does not respect him as a person, but then again Ed does not respect anyone it would seem who does not kiss his ass...
