    There IS more than one way to rock - seems kind of commie for Sammy to state otherwise! (well, he IS the "Red Rocker"). Hell, they proved it later in the show. It's not "crank up the drums, crank up the bass, crank up "Love Walks In" in your face", after all.

    Sammy has always been a legend in this city I live in because of that moment. lol

    Oddly in 1985, Sammy pronounced Illinois with the S.

    Still the best thing that's happened in that stadium since then. Cause the football team stinks

    It was on in Ohio. We were at Tonys house with a pool... bunch of friends gathering and watched FA all day. We were in the basement doing bongs when Ed and Sam came on. It was a bad pleather couch I was sitting on. It was on TV in Ohio, Sam.

    I was watching in Canada, and it was on TV here as well. I remember vividly hearing him say he was joining VH, and the version of RnR.

    It would've had to been during Ed's solo he launched into right after RAR, but every video version of that I've seen it cuts off right after Sam says "The king...the king..." at the very beginning. Because he didn't say it before that per the video (including TOOWTR, TLB, and 55 before Ed joined).

    And where was Tony at when people were doing bongs in his basement?

    It could have been. I remember my parents were watching Farm Aid, and my dad called me to watch because SH was on. Then EVH appeared.

    The solo Ed did in RnR is the single best off the cuff solo of all-time in my book. Still gives me chills every time I hear it. I spent HOURS learning to play that solo after hearing it. I had it on VHS tape and wore it out.
