    I love the "Runaround" video. EVH looks so happy. Does anyone know where that vid was filmed?

    I don't know where the video was shot, but I dig the song. One of the best Hagar-era tunes.

    Have you ever noticed towards the end of the video where Mike looks like he's about to take a dive? He's leaning back trying to catch his balance, and has this "oh shit!" look on his face.

    My brother and I were in a bar in Marquette, Michigan and the video for Runaround came on. We were just jamming when all of a sudden the sound goes off, and some guy starts doing karaoke. We were PISSED! I wanted to kill that MF.

    Hmm, I like a fair amount of the Sammy stuff and I've always thought Runaround was closer to the bottom of the list.

    Great tune that shows off Ed's rhythm playing as much as his lead playing. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] One of the harder =VH= tunes ot play on guitar and get the timing right, IMO. Even harder if you are singing backup on the chorus.

    I do really dig Runaround. I dig Eddie's guitar sound, the music, the vocals, the lyrics, the solo, the breakdown, I dig the whole song.
