    Does anybody know, if Numb To The Touch from OU812 exist as a bootleg or something ?

    Quote from wikipedia:
    "Numb To The Touch was written and supposed to be on the album, but it wasn't finished in time, so it wasn't released. According to Sammy Hagar, it was supposed to be a traditional heavy metal song, similar to Whitesnake."

    Would love to hear that piece....but maybe it belongs to the tons of material, worth for ten albums.....

    Not aware of it if it has. Probably much like Between Us Two, it was ditched then recycled into other songs for later albums.

    What's funny about that quote is that the latter part of that album has a very Whitesnake feel to it--very traditional Hard Rock (with the VH bent of course)

    Then again, when the hell did Whitesnake become the standard bearer of Hard Rock? Is that a backhanded compliment saying the song was pussified?
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Cheddar, Muenster, Provolone, or Monterey Jack?

    Whitesnake jokes aside, since this was 1988, people usually would associate "Still of the Night" with their heavier stuff. I would bet that Sammy was thinking the same when he said that.

    Those guys were cheesey in many ways but I still feel that song is badass today.
