    Default Sammy talks about being inspired by EVH

    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    Breaking news. Eddie writes inspiring song. Inspired Sam to write lame lyrics.

    "Most love and respect for each other as I've ever had with any other human being, whether male or female."

    Doesn't jive with Sam's other comments about Eddie being distant, in his own world and impossible to get to know. If Sam talked or shot-the-shit while on tour, it was with Al or Mike.

    Sam knows Van Halen history is about to be made in 2015. The Foo Fighter appearance was just the very beginning. Like Sam did before ADKOT release, he is trying to get in the media before the Van Halen explosion. Van Halen tsunami is coming in 2015 and Sam wants to get his name out there before his history in the band is swept away and largely forgotten in the Classic Van Halen flood.

    Really enjoyed that. I like it when artists talk about the creative process and how it comes about. Nice to hear sammy not sniping or taking shots at eddie too. I'll always prefer dave but I've always respected sammy's stuff as well.

    I agree, the timing is suspect.

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    Yeah, all of Sam's lyrics suck--NOT! Folks need to get a life on this worn out falsehood.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and speculate that ExpandedConsciousness and Redfoot are NOT the same person ...

    some of you guys are just too much.

    it's the 30 year anniversary of when Sam joined the band, I don't think Sam is doing this as a reaction to the whole "get ready" message.....lol, I'm sure no matter what Sammy says some of the insecure dave or the gravers will rag him.

    it's as predictable as the sun rising at this point.

    Definitely not Sammy's lyrical peak with Van Halen. Here are some of the songs where Sammy truly shined with his lyrics during his time in VH ...

    The best part of that interview was when Sam said "I should've put that in the book." Yes Sam. You should have taken out some of the garbage (especially the negative tell-alls...) that is in there and talked about things like where you drew inspirations for songs and the song writing process.
