    Default Sam on Leno

    Kind of surprised I don't see a thread on this. Sammy is going to be on Leno talking about aliens in a few minutes it sounds like, in case anybody is interested.

    So he came on after Helen Hunt....who's getting old, but I still would like to poke. He talked about aliens, pleasure tents under the stage and how great the van halen days were, but how shitty the 04 tour was. Then he joined the band to sing WCTBL.

    Watched it last night. Pretty cool to see Sam acknowledge, in an indirect way, those here at the Links who have posted pictures of Charlie Sheen and Eddie as a comparison. He said him and Mike crack up, I believe, when he sees the pictures.

    Nothing really special in the segment though.

    It was a Twister reunion sort of... It would have been cool if the band played "Humans Being" when Sammy and Helen shook hands. The funny thing is that both of them probably never made the connection.

    I DVR'd it and just saw it. He really tore into that song.

    Yeah that was great- I was flipping around last night while jamming on the guitar and I don't know how I missed that. I tend to not watch Jay any longer, something just isn't the same with him since he returned to the show after the whole Conan thing (I do watch him on TBS though). Sammy was slightly off key at the beginning but it's almost to be expected the way he ran over there. You can tell the guy can clearly hit those notes yet from a song he helped create back in 1986! Even though Sam has a songwriting credit, no doubt Ed will now look into suing the Tonight Show Band for actually playing a Sammy-era song.

    I only wish Robert Plant's voice would have held up this well as I think they're around the same age. If that would have been the case we'd be seeing a Zep tour with the remaining members. I'm sure the main reason he didn't agree to a tour was that he knew his voice couldn't stand up to it even when playing everything down a full step. He couldn't really hit some of his high notes live as far back as '73.

    Ironic that Sam was sitting next to Helen Hunt for it was her movie (Twister) that broke up the band.

    Over in the Eddie Trunk rumor thread, the discussion devolved (surprise!) into Sammy being out of tune a lot and this performance being an example. He is a bit off in the beginning but this performance, especially given the circumstances, sounds great to me.

    Yeah, that was me, and he's out of tune. So what? He's a friggin rock star, LOL. Who cares? He got it together, for the most part. Was still good to see, and I'll be there if the Foot comes around...
