    Here is a message from Sammy from www.redrocker.com:

    MESSAGE FROM SAMMY
    First of all, it was a crazy few months leading up to the B-Day bash/Melt Down.

    Well, first of all, the Melt Down was a marketing plan for the tequila which I though was a great idea, but rolling it into the B-Day Bash I had my reservations, (we certainly do not need more people trying to get into the Wabo that week of the year.) But, I rolled over. (I was stressed for weeks),then came hurricane Julia. Damn. So I was the first to say cancel everything. Once I was finally in contact with Marco & Jorge they said no water, electricity etc. It looks real bad. I was concerned for the fans health & good time. So, we canceled. (not to mention the NY disaster). But I started feeling guilty. So after Marco & Jorge told me, (around the 1st week of October) things were being cleaned up fast but the locals who lost everything needed help. So I decided to come with the Wabo?s & go ahead with the bash. Boy, I am glad I did. First of all it was like the old days, (6-7years ago) nearly everyone got in. The shows were low pressure, lots of fun and for the locals very important to their lives. The whole spontaneous thing for me, (and I hope the Red Heads) was one of my best experience in Cabo in years. The heads brought clothes from heaven. They also donated personally over $7K to Amigo De Los Ninos, which is the only organization in Cabo that did anything to help besides the Wabo. Can you Believe it? The door money bought food, diapers, milk, etc. and supplied 1500 families of 4 for 2 days. The staff of the Cabo Wabo every morning loaded the bags with food and loaded their own little trucks and cars and we all went to neighborhoods that were hit hard and handed out the supplies directly to the families. It was beautiful. (The charity organizations in the U.S. might consider our technique, It works). All in all, it took a little more effort because the town was a bit tattered and dirty but all in all top 3 for me.

    I truly thank the fans that made it. I still love & worship those that didn?t. Please don?t feel guilty. The Melt down will be rescheduled around spring break and God willing 2002 is another year. *55* Wow! That should be interesting!
    I love you all.
    Sammy

    That Sammy... sure is great that he sticks his head out of the ground and comments on things from time to time.

    Pretty cool that the bash served to help the victims down there too.

    It's a pretty rustic place to begin with as well!

    Cabo San Lucas is literaley right at the tip of the Baja penisula (ie. Lands End!)and is exposed to the Pacific, and right behind the town proper is a little mountain range so I'm sure it got boot fucked pretty bad! At least the CW isn't right on the water, and I'm sure some of the resorts on the water got it worse!

    Good on Sammy! He keeps doing stuff like this that makes him look pretty good, what's VH doing?
