    Yep... It was Anton Fig. Great, great drummer.

    I still remember watching it live. Cant believe it was so long ago...

    Sammy was jamming on the red EVH EBMM, right?

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    I remember watching that the night it aired and thought it was cool that he was playing a ebmm.
    He had a great tone then.
    But then again he was using a evh ebmm and a 5150 right?

    I saw Sammy play that song live with Mike at the 1994 bay area music awards.
    Also saw Sammy leaving the show very drunk with 2 guys holding him up and putting him into a limo.

    And Mike was fine.

    Have photo's and maybe i'll post em.

    I did Meet Sammy b4 the Calif music awards in 2000 or 2001 and told him about the last time i saw him and he said just wait till later!

    Anton Fig.

    If I remember correctly, he played with Ace Frehley back in the day.
