    Sam sounds good. Yes stuff is detuned a bit but that's fine. He isn't pulling a Don Dokken and singing an octave below the original recording. He also isn't trying to sing in the register of an Opera Soprano. At 73 nobody should complain.

    The Butcher? Ehhhhh. He is perfectly fine on Sammy stuff. Simply can't do Eddie justice for whatever reason. I know its not the end all be all but its like somebody playing Ozzy's songs and butchering Randy's solos. Sorry but a very good concert would be great if he simply had a guy who can deliver a very important era of Sammy's career.

    Sammy could easily get an Eddie clone but he doesn't. Vic no doubt is the weak link, but I think he does a fine job playing the setlist across the board.

    I wish he would get Jesse Harms back, I thought his background vocals improved the live shows.

    Sammy does one thing right that I agree with and itís loyalty. He keeps who he wants critics and fans be damned.

    I admire that.

    Sammy cracks me up when he yells out the year he thinks the song came out in. Confuses even him at times.

    Very hard to watch BOBW and not think of the cool rendition of it on LWAN.

I tend to agree that if they're going to play VH tunes they should have somebody playing it properly. But then I look at the crowd and think "none of these people have heard the Good Enough solo 436 times like I have" and realize it probably doesn't even matter to 95% of attendees. Then the other 5% of us can just complain about it on the Links.
    This, everyone looked like they were having a great time.

But they are not mistakes, as some assumed. They are changes he's making deliberately to the tune. It's his own version of the song. My guess is that he's not a huge fan of the tune, Sam asked him to play it, he does it but he prefers other songs.

    The cynic in me says he changes the songs to make them easier, but I'll go with your version.

    Just play it the way the GOAT did on record. Any player worth their salt can and do even on this site.

    Stop the butchery!

    Just watched them all... that was fun. The band puts on a party that gets the crowd pumped up and singing along.

    Thanks James.
