    Default Sammy's best vocal performance

    From solo or VH, what do you consider as Sammy's best work on the mic?

    I was listening to Ten 13 the other night (very loudly, I add) and Sammy's vox on Serious JuJu absolutely blew me away. If you haven't heard the song lately, play it (loudly) and enjoy what I think is one of Sammy's best vocals.

    OK, your turn.

    I didn't necessarily like the way he was mixed on Ten 13. I thought 5150 (the song) was great, I liked the give and take with Ed's keyboard in Why Can't This Be Love, Swept Away from VOA is a fave and I thought he was solid on Poundcake.

    5150 is a personal favorite, and I think it is some of his best lyrical work as well. Good job Sammy!
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    He sounds incredible on his new album. If people can get over the chill out vibe, it's great. I listen to it and can't believe he's almost 60.

    God, It's not obvious what my favorite time for Van Halen was, is it?
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    Not enough, for sure.

    I know a lot of people don't like the song, but he's great on Can't Stop Lovin You.

    He sounds great on the new one - Sailing.
