    Wow!
    I've ALWAYS wanted this DVD. ALWAYS. Been looking for some two years for it now, and if I set up a trade, seemingly everyone who's had it also has everything I got.

    If ANYONE has this show, please contact me, I'd like to work something out.

    As for the performance itself, I think it explains why I want the DVD so badly Thanks for the post, LD!

    Cool find!!

    Sammy sounds great, but that synthesizer sucks! Perhaps Sammy should look into resurrecting it....

    Incredible. Thanks for posting- I have always been disappointed in the VH version on the Live album. The Who and VH/Hagar are my faviorite bands and it was a real disappointment to hear VH destroy Baba on Live. This makes up for it and I would love for Sam to add that for the anthology tour this spring/summer.

    Actually, VH never covered "Baba O'Riley". You're thinking of "Won't Get Fooled Again".

    Sam threw in a line from "Baba..." on "WGFA".

    This video is from the old MTV Saturday Night Concerts. I have this on DVD and/or VHS somewhere. I'm certain it was filmed in St. Louis circa '82 or '83.

I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    WGFA live was also great, the way Ed transformed the keyboard part into a guitar part rocked.

    Goes to show, the theory that Sam made VH pop is pure hogwash. If anything it's EVH who decided on the poppier direction all by himself. Sam's a rocker at heart.

    You are correct... I was caught up in the moment and maybe to many CSI episodes... I should say VH (and Alex in particular) destroyed WGFA on Live.

    This looks and sounds very much like Live W/O...
