    Check out most of his album Lemonade. Missin' My Baby. Philadelphonic's Dreamin'.

    He's a multi-talented guy. Harp, guitar, slide guitar, occasional steel pedal. His rhythm section in the Sauce are no slouches either. GREAT live show.

It sounds not done.

    Sam's most successful work has historically included being with another writer. The circle has no one else w a strong writing background. So what works as great cover band might be more challenged to create originals especially without any additional writing support. At 70 plus that is a lot of pressure writing wise w not a lot of support. Maybe other tunes are more complete I do not know but this is not as good as the original and needs work in my view. I'd say a good start if a demo but incomplete as a final song

    Notice none of that opinion in anyway connected w van halen or Dave. Not everything is related to that, sometimes a song just sucks to others ears. Enjoy the shows and have a blast but yes one can have an independent opinion.

    Yep but as many mentioned his bass sounds great. You have one of the greatest background voices in rock, bring it up in the mix

    I'm sorry but that is terrible. But like others have said at least you can hear Mike's bass.

    I love Sammy in Van Halen. I like a lot of Sam outside Van Halen. I think Sam is a better singer than Roth. I like VH4.

    But this song is shit, dude.

    You gotta compare this song with what is comparable. This is a Sammy solo song. And it is better than the material on Livin It Up and his recent solo releases. There is no EVH or Satch playing on it, so it's more of a riff based approach. Production is pretty good. A step in the right direction compared to his most recent solo records which I didn't like at all.

    Nobody said anything about "Roth" in this thread up until you did. Could have left it at VH4, but you didn't. Nobody said Tattoo was better. Not even sure why it's posted in Main since nobody in "The Circle" has been a member of VH for over a decade.

    Let the shitfest begin!!!!

    GIRL GET WHAT SHE WANTS!!!! TRUST FUND BABY!!! Yeah!!!!! Rock and Roll man...


    Peace

    ~E
    oh yeah, sooooooo much VH activity is going on and you're wondering why something is posted in main? Good grief
    A fart by anyone of these guys would make the news.

    I think thereís a reason the circle has released an album of new songs before, they arenít very good it
    The main riff is okay, the subject of trust fund baby is lame, it just isnít a song that resonates
    Iíll forget about it by tomorrow. Doesnít really have a hook and isnít catchy

    I actually like a lot of Sams solo stuff, up through Red Voodoo

    Sam is at his best when heís writing with s chip on his shoulder, he doesnít have that right now, and because of it the lyrics feel phoned in

    No way, man!

    If you don't like it you're part of the "Roth Brigade!"
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.
