    Default "Unchained"/"5150" combo on Europe 93 tour...

    Ive always loved how they brought back "Unchained" for this tour. At that point it was a treat for the fans, and I even thought Sammy did great on it. I was watching Frankfurt 93 yesterday and loved how "Unchained" segued into "5150". Its almost like its one big long song joined together. Once "Unchained" ends, Eddie just rips it up with the "5150" intro. .

    I know exactly what you mean ! I've watched and liked those vids on YT . They did really cool versions of those tunes . Eddie had the purple EBMM , right ? Sam did a fine job , yet it was (and usually is) Eddie who impressed me .

    I like hearing him in that era . And I like how he still coaxed a lot of the early tone/feel out of his new signature gear - at the time . It was slightly more refined , but still rude sounding . For the record ? I'm listening to WACF as I type this . Still adore the Dave era too

    yeah that was awesome. I also was watching that a while back. Watching them do Unchained back then was incredible!!!! 5150 was the icing on the cake for sure. 2 Kick ass songs from both eras.

    It really was , Rob !
    After hearing (or not hearing - Haha) Sam's reluctance to sing the back catalog ? This version of Unchained was a nice treat . Eddie still had a lot of brown in his tone . He sounded very fluent on those EBMM's .

    For them to go into 5150 was just incredible !!!
    Superior tune all around . Fantastic riff , great harmonies and a ballistic guitar solo . Mad props for that awesome tune

    It's a great combo of songs but I can't get past how bad Sam's voice sounds on classic VH songs. He's such a terrible fit for them. But then he busts into 5150 and his era of VH and it's killer.

    Yeah,Sam just couldn't deliver on the classics.No biggie,who could,really.He did a lot better than Gary...that's for sure.
    While it was nice to hear Unchained,at the time,it's unfortunate they couldn't mix up the classics back then.Instead of playing the same two or three Dave songs.

    Slight disagree here , DD . I've heard Sam sound fairly good on several VH tunes . BTW - lots of his are classic ones too .

    Sam and Dave are so different as singers. Dave wouldn't sound any better doing Sam's stuff. Is what it is.

    Really disagree with that. For as much as I hated VH3 I thought Gary did real well with Dave-era VH and IMO way better than Sam. That Australian Mean Street is pretty damn good.

    "Classic VH" is just a term for the Dave-era. Don't know if it's used on other sites but it's used all the time here. It's not a reference to classic VH songs in general.

    Mean Street has to be sung aggressively,with attitude.Gary,didn't approach it that way.He completely changed it.Listen to the chorus.He goes soft and pretty with it.He does this at the end every verse,as well.Terrible.He did this with pretty much all of them.The injection of "wuss" he gave them just completely ruined it for me.I would agree if he had stayed true to the songs they wouldn't of been that bad.But really,he was a bad fit all the way around.

    I feel Sam did those songs better back then than Dave does now.
