    1. Sammy doing this HAS NOTHING to do with an upcoming VH tour. I am sure this UTAH station or whatever it was has nothing to do with the VH PR machine.

    2. Yes stories like this should have been in the book. Great story and one of the few I have never heard.

    3. Funny thing noticed on the video of LWAN. After the quite bridge when those guys jump up from the stage, you can see Eddie doing his fast running in place move looking at Sammy as a dance partner but Sammy wasn't paying attention. Maybe it was planned and Sammy missed it? Just kind of funny to see Eddie wanting to do something and then going "oops better not"

    4. I am in amazement of how these guys can play and move on stage.

    5. No issues with anything Sam said here and think I am going to jam 5150 today

    Agreed. I was just having a little fun, as some folks here take this stuff SO seriously. I do like Sammy, and own lots of his stuff with VH, Chickenfoot, solo & even HSAS. I thought that was just a bit of harmless fun.... I do feel that the real lyrical genius from VH was Gary: "Pizzaman, just wanna slice........." C'mon, reads like Walt Whitman

    Also, correct me if I'm wrong. I'm pretty sure this story WAS in the book. Sams memory is terrible.

    Lyrics....non-issue.

    We're talking about a music genre where the most significant artists in its history have lyrics like:

    Little Richard:
    Bop bopa-a-lu a whop bam boo
    Tutti frutti, au- rutti
    Tutti frutti, au-rutti
    Tutti frutti, au-rutti
    Tutti frutti, au-rutti
    Tutti frutti, au-rutti
    A whop bop-a-lu a whop bam boom


    Beatles:
    Girl (this one word is the entire chorus of the song)

    Elvis:
    You ain't nothin' but a hound dog
    cryin' all the time.


    Fats Domino:
    I found my thrill on blueberry hill

    Rolling Stones:
    I can't get no satisfaction
    I can't get no satisfaction
    'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
    I can't get no, I can't get no


    The Who:
    People try to put us d-down (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
    Just because we get around (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
    Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
    I hope I die before I get old (Talkin' 'bout my generation)


    Led Zep:
    You need coolin', baby, I'm not foolin',
    I'm gonna send you back to schoolin',
    Way down inside honey, you need it,
    I'm gonna give you my love,
    I'm gonna give you my love.


    Lyrics have never mattered in popular music.

    Dear God, another Sam v DLR thread? How original.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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

    A man's rights rests in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box

    EXACTLY what I thought as soon as he said that.

    good point.

    Saying "I only listen to VH for the lyrics" is not that different from saying, "I only read Playboy for the articles."
    I'm not conceited. Conceit is a fault and I have no faults.
