    Wasn't saying it as a slight to Sam, but he's mentioned it before, and I remember him saying how he wished he had gotten a chance at Me Wise Magic.

    It's possible to be a fan and yet not know every single tune off every single album... Look at many of the kids at the last few Roth tours, for example. Do you think some of those girls knew what the "Growth" jam was? Or at what point it occurred on what album for that matter?

    Not being a dick, I'm just saying. Sam was obviously a fan, albeit probably a casual one.

    I didn't take it as a slight at all... And I didn't know he said that about MWM - but that's a jam I'd like to have heard a version of!

    Oh, I hear ya'. Truth be told, we hardcore fans seem to know a lot more about this band than the actual members, past and present.

    It wasn't Sam, it was Ed pretending he didn't know what In a Simple Rhyme was. Part of his "if you aren't in the current version of VH you were never in it" routine.

    Especially since Ed, in another interview I read, said IASR was one of his favorite VH songs.

    Yeah, it seems like we take VH more seriously than they do!

    Gotcha. I read it wrong at first. Sorry.

    So, Edward considered those Roth songs as "off to trade school" at the time, eh? LOL.

    I have to say I'm glad Dave is on MWM. Just an incredible VH song.

    Next favorite unreleased tune would be GTSOTR, followed by I Want Some Action.

    Cool that the intro for this was later used on a Sammy era song - Take Me Back (Deja Vu). I wonder if Sammy recognized any riffs from his era's jamming with Edward that ended up on ADKoT?
    I think Gary pointed out that the intro to Chinatown is from You Wear It Well off his demos in '99
