    I don't understand why you would call Sammy a fucking asshole. That's the way bands work my friend, everyone gets to give their own input. Now, if Sammy had no musical background, ie: did not play guitar, it would seem kind of bizzare that he would suggest to the guitar player what to play as a melody line. However, with that said, there are many singers out there that don't play guitar and that have very good ideas when it comes to melody lines and such, so I don't know why you're coming down on Sammy like that.

    Ask anyone on this board, that's in a band, how songwriting and recording happens and chances are they will tell you that everyone contributes ideas, even the singer, who sometimes doesn't play an instrument. If Sammy was such an asshole, Billy Duffy would not stick around for this project, it's not like he doesn't have any other projects to work on.

    I think he was joking about Sammy.

    However I do find it interesting to see Mike basically not giving any input. You would think after having the shackles of Eddie Van Halen around him for so many years he would be more vocal about ideas.

    Of course its just a 5 minute clip too.

    I am bad at working with individuals on musical ideas. I hear a lot in my head and want to get to that place without interference. Wish I could let that it go becuase it causes some problems and I know its on me.

    Mike looks like he's sitting around thinking, when the fuck is Eddie gonna show up? He really looks lost there. Seeing that, I really feel for the guy, he should be at 5150 working up some new VH tunes.

    Mike has probably been used to not giving his opinion for the last 20 years. When you're used to doing things one way for 20 years, it's hard to change.

    I really didn't see much work being accomplished. I guess that's why it's called playing instruments and not working instruments.....

    That looks like Sammy's home studio. I like seeing work-in-progress videos like this a lot.

    They're loose and having fun, I just hope they work at this seriously. This is very likely the greatest VH-related release we'll get from now on, so everyone keep your fingers crossed.

    Pardon my brain fart, but ...

    I guess I've been out of the loop or something, but what happened to the Sammy, Satriani thang?? Is that over ?
    BTW, I love the playing of B Duffy. A true meat & potatos guitar player.
    That tune had a Cult feel to it for sure.

    Sam just likes to play, I think he really enjoys it.

    If DLR showed up at Sam's gate and said "hey, let's go down to the local bar and do a surprise jam for people", Sam, as much as he despises DLR would say "sure, I'm in".

    But I too, like the last poster, am continually confused as to what Sam is up to. Did Satch and Chad Smith bow out due to commitments?

    Not saying that as a slam, I am just a casual observer and each week it seems he is playing with someone different on some video that is being posted.

    I always thought Chad Smith was the member who might leave the quickest. If the Chili Peppers called and said, hey, the hiatus is over, he would be gone.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    What you call being an asshole, most people who have been in working bands would call "creative interaction".

    Sam has been responsible for a large part of melody in probably every band he has been in, why should that change now? Especially since he is the big dog in that group.


    I am sure that if we could go back in time, DLR and Ed had the same kind of interaction, and probably no where near as polite.

    Just my opinion, but many seem to find fault with everything Sam does.

    Maybe you were joking, but if so, I missed it.

    I was joking. Hence the rolling of the eyes at the bottom of my post.

    I was just writing that before some asshole wrote it. Because with the people that are around here these days....you KNOW it would be written.
