    Sammy's new record has just passed the 15,000 mark, according to Metal Sludge.

    I know Sam fans, his audience is becoming more selective.

    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    Tito and DLR. Then again outselling zero isn't that hard.

    Of course outselling ZERO isn't that hard....it's a killer boot that FREE for everybody to get their mitts on.

    And I'll bet you a million bucks more folks have Zero than Not 4 Sale.....

    </font>[/QUOTE]I think it has more to do with not having a major label for distribution. As far as I know it wasn't even released here in Canada. 10/13 was distributed by BMG so it was everywhere. In Canada it was done by EMI and it's also easy to find. It's pretty hard to sell a record when it's barely even available.(big surprise there, eh)
    Not 4 Sale indeed.

    I can't beleive that DLR fans would pick on Sammy about his record sales. This is one area where DLR sucks as well.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    15,000 !

    BWHAHHAHAHHAHHAHAHHA

    Is that like .000000000000000001 % of Americans actually purchased it ???

    Sorry Samsters, actually 15,000 is a lot more than I thought he was going to sell. I thought
    a figure of 10,000 would have been about right.
