    [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img] Hey VANHALENHEADS, Since the main topic seems to be ROTH today I thought I'd chip in this story for what it's worth. During the 5150 Tour, I caught the show here in Indianapolis and I got inside INFO that VH were staying at the CANTURBURY Hotel here in town (it is one of the more plush and expensive in Indy), anyway, I had a friend who worked there and told me the exact time when they would be returning. I went there with the cover of the 5150 album and a big, thick black marker in the hopes of getting an autograph. I went to the rear entrance and waited and not a soul aside from myself was there. After a few moments a LIMO pulled up and I could see Sammy's wild lock's thru the window and Alex was with him. They got out and I approached them saying "Sammy, can I get an......., about that time I was shoved against the wall by a bodyguard or whoever who was saying, GET BACK...GET BACK. They went inside and needless to say I did not receive an autograph. Anyway when he pushed me I dropped my album cover and it got filthy and wet because it was just beginning to rain slightly. I don't know why they reacted that way, I was literally the only one there and obviously posed no threat. I had my album and marker out openly and I know they knew that was why I was there. I was a teenager back then and you can imagine how I felt. Anyway, years later when I lived in L.A. I was in the RAINBOW BAR & GRILL on Sunset Blvd. on a dreary afternoon having a beer. It was quiet really and only a handful of people were at the bar and the bartender kept talking to a man across from me by the name of DAVE. I did'nt recognize him immediately but when he spoke I knew instinctively and decided to go over and introduce myself. He was real laid back, asked me to sit down and we talked for some 20 or so minutes about music and Indiana because we are both from here. He autographed the orange T-Shirt I was wearing and even bought me a drink. I still have the T-Shirt now encased in my music room. So suffice it too say maybe I caught Sammy in a bad mood that day but from my experience DAVID LEE is definately a cool down to earth and good human being who's willing to make a little time for his fans. P.S. To you SAMMYHEADS out there I'm sorry, but this was just my personal experience and is not intended as a jab or punch at Mr. HAGAR. Sincerely, Apostle Paul, PEACE

    Very cool.

    Tell us more about your 20 min. with Dave. Was anyone else with him? What else did you talk about? Did anyone else recognize him?

    20 min. is some decent face time with Dave.

    What was he drinking?

    I'm sure Dave was happy someone knew who he was! Was this during the
    "Vegas Years"?

    I don't think you can judge Hagar's pesonality based on the fact
    that a bodygaurd pushed a pimpled face kid on the ground. If you had
    told me Sammy pushed you to the ground then you may have something
    that speaks to his behaviour.

    I hear that Sammy is usually the more laid back down to earth kind of guy. I know a guy who was down in Cabo just a couple months ago, and he was standing outside the Cabo Wabo. Sammy walked right up to him and asked him if he wanted to go inside and party, and he even bought his drinks for him. Anyway, the guy said Sammy was really nice and cool about everything, which I guess is opposite the story above.

    </font>[/QUOTE][img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img] Dear AVH: Guess I touched a nerve my fellow hoosier. I'm not judging HAGAR'S personality, perhars he was in a hurry or in a foul mood, and I dont have nothing against him, I enjoy his music, but the fact remains DAVID LEE was willing and at the time HAGAR was not, and besides like I said before, it was MY experience. PEACE OUT, Paul
