    In the latest issue of Metal Edge (Korn on the cover), the last part of the feature on Sam & Dave which first appeared in the previous issue is printed.
    In that piece, 2 extraordinary claims are made by our heroes, champions of rock'n'roll, but definitely not masters of numbers.

    First, Dave claims that, combined, he and Sam have sold 200 million records!!
    I don't know how you do the math, even if you include bootlegs, I doubt very much that figure is correct.
    Second, not to be outdone in a mach which could be called "the champions of bad math exageration", Sammy claims that in 3 cities, Detroit, Chicago and St Louis, he can bring between 15000 and 20000 people alone, without the help of Dave.

    I am worried for the younge people cruising this site. Do not, I repeat, do not take these examples as accurate examples of good calculation!

    Dave was probably referring to worldwide sales of VH records - which, most likely, are around the 200 million mark.

    As for Sam - he's just plain delusional.

    I believe that the music stores sold the music, they just played on the records....LOL
    Van Halen without the original 4 is just not Van Halen.

    I have seen Sammy in concert in St. Louis at the UMB Bank Pavilion twice by himself, the place holds around 20,000 people and when Sammy plays there it is usually pretty full. In St. Louis he can draw 15,000 fans by himself.

    Well, let me see:

    Something like 15 million plus 50 million equals...200 million? I don't think so.
