    That jam was even better than the original version. And holy shit, Joe!

    Such a fun song, and as cool as the title is, I always thought "Get Your Buzz On" would've been way better and more memorable. Probably would've been more popular with that, too.

    well, if Chad Smith's busy and/or has better things to do, perhaps Sam, Joe and Mike could convince Alex to join the Chickenfoot thing?

    That thing would immediately morph into Van Halen "three-quarters-but-missing-the-most-important-quarter."

    I dig Montrose and some stuff from the HSAS record. Hagar' solo album were never big here in Brazil.

    I also remember There's Only One Way to Rock and Your Love is Driving me Crazy playing on the radio.

    And there was that show from Hagar with some cars chassis on stage and the band would walk over them while they would be playng TOOWTR.

    1986 came in and then, all of a sudden, the man was jumping into a pot of gold joining forces with EVH.

    I remember the first video I saw of Sam was 3 Lock Box. Was ok but kind of generic. Then 55 was out and it was better because it was more of an anthem. However I wasn't driving so I wasn't capable of driving 35 let alone 55.

    Didn't like 3 Lock Box being played over and over on MTV, still don't care for that song.

    Yikes. If he had been successful in that era he probably would have recorded "Lonely Boy" or the song for "The Greatest American Hero". Or been in a never ending pissing contest with Air Supply's original singer.

    Luckily, Van Halen I was released less than a month later, and so began the end of the Disco and Yacht Rock bullshit....



    Thank you Eddie, Alex, Dave, Mike, and Ted. Seriously, Thank you.

    can't say for certain that was what i saw, but IMDB doesn't list any other appearances between 1978 and 1984 and I'm certain there were, but if that was the one, yeah, that wouldn't have sold me in '78!

    Ted Templeman wanted to make a whole record like this with Sammy around 1985. Sammy had other plans.
