    Default Dick Dale

    I don't think Sammy has ever played with Dick Dale, but I'd really like to see it happen. I think they'd be a great combination.

    For those unfamiliar with Dale, he's the original California surf guitar King. He did the intro to Third Rock From The Sun and a good bit of stuff for Pulp Fiction. He was popular in the 60's.

    Good choice although I think there's a snowballs chance in hell of such a pairing. That's been my biggest complaint about Sammy the last decade - he sticks with generic hard rock formula/players. And Dale still has it as seen in this NAMM clip with GE Smith from a few years ago.

    Wow, he's covering the Black Eyed Peas!

    Always loved his stuff, maybe he isn't as unique as I think he is, but in my listening circle, he is the only guy that sounds the way he does.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

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

    in his book Sammy talks about a guy who he played with early on that was kind of a Dick dale clone (don't remember his name at all). I honestly thought he was dead, no disrespect meant, I was sure I remembered him passing away a few years ago. The only thing I have with him is when he and Stevie Ray Vaughn did Pipeline on the movie Back to the Beach (which VH actually covered at the last show on the 5150 tour and it's pretty neat).

    If you want to hear Sammy sing non-"generic hard rock" stuff, I suggest you pick up a copy of CFIII, the new Chickenfoot record.

    On this record you'll find some R&B-ish stuff like "Come Closer," folk influenced stuff like "Something Gone Wrong" or pop with some country influence like "Different Devil."

    Or "Livin' it Up" (aka Jimmy Buffet tribute album).
