    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    -Kahil Gibran

    Ed could play drunk because he was that good and it made Sam mad. They connected the last year of his life. The last couple minutes of the interview.

    You're welcome.

    When I see a headline "New Sammy interview," I can't help but think it's going to sound just like an old Sammy interview.

    Nothing new under the sun...

    Maybe better put, regarding VAN HALEN, there's nothing new outside of the son.

    Well, I didn't know that Sammy called Ed "Word Man."

    BLABBERMOUTH.NET transcribed some of it:

    The whole year, of 2020, in the early parts, around January, Eddie and I connected and we started talking again. We were talking about writing music again. We were talking about going out and touring with the whole gang one time for the big time in '22; that was the plan. Of course we wouldn't wanna announce anything like that. But I think Wolfie [Eddie's son Wolfgang Van Halen] said it in some interviews how everybody was planning on doing that, and it would have been the greatest thing that ever happened to VAN HALEN. Unfortunately, Eddie didn't make it.

    "I don't think anyone realized how sick he was," Sammy continued. "And then when I started talking to him [again], I would send him a call and he wouldn't answer. I would send him a text and say, 'Word man…' — I used to call him 'Word Man — 'Word man, where are you, man? I'm trying to get a hold of you. You're making me nervous.' And about a day later, he'd get back [to me] and say, 'Dude, I was in the hospital.' I'd say, 'Oh, god.' It was funny. 'Dude, I'm in the hospital. Give me some slack.'

    "But I'll tell you what: that guy was made out of something special, man. That Dutch blood or whatever it is, he hung in there a long time. He's had cancer and hip surgery and all these things for years; I guess he'd battled it almost 20 years."

    According to Sammy, Eddie never allowed his health or substance abuse issues to significantly affect his live performance. "Eddie always played great," he said. "That's the thing that used to make me mad, 'cause he could drink as much as he wanted, do anything he wanted and come out there and still play good. I'd be going, 'This guy is making me mad.' [Laughs]"

    It's play WELL, not play GOOD. Same as I feel WELL, not I feel GOOD. Unless, you're (not YOUR) James Brown.

    I wonder if Sammy had never joined VH. Would he be talking about Ronnie Montrose as his claim to relevancy?

    Sammy got very lucky in life. I wouldn't say he was the greatest talent on his own but he put in the work and made the most of what he had. He was smart.

    He made his money work for him when he finally got it. To me that's his real talent not music imo.

    Has the tequila knocked 2004 out of Sam's memory banks?

    Sammy keeps getting things wrong.
    2022 tour? What is he talking about? Never on the table.
    The whole kitchen sink idea was just that: an idea. It was not definitive.

    The tour or series of shows with Michael Anthony was definitely in the cards.
    The plan was to go out like they came in, with all guns blazing.
    We all know Ed's health took a bad turn and that was it.

    This is what really stings.

    It also kills me that EVH, coming off of the 2015 tour, was likely cleared by his Dr's, and the poor guy found out it went to stage four in 2017 after he had a nagging cough.

    It accelerated so quickly.

    And as per Wolf, the covid nonsense scuttled EVH's treatment options in Germany, which may've prolonged his life even further.

    Such a shame; such a tragedy.
