    Basically this…

    What is really weird is that Sammy said in an interview just after he joined the band that he would only last about 10 years with VH before trouble set in. Inspired insight or just sheer coincidence?

    As long as someone has the Delorean fired up, could you please drop me at the Worcester Centrum on March 16th 1984? I was only 13 but I should have been at that show. My first show was at the Centrum but it was Aug 12th 1986. Mind you it was an unbelievable show that I will never forget but I still can't believe that I was never able to see the OG VH back in the day. Was just a tad too young I guess. By 1984 though I was already a mega fan and having played drums for two years at that point, Alex was and still is my guy. His 1984 set up was probably my favorite.

    Speaking of Sammy, it's typical to see him mix the facts up, especially about the name as we know that Ted had absolutely nothing to do with naming VH. I am shocked however that he actually threw a nice compliment Dave's way at the end so there is that. I also recall reading that Alex got hurt tripping on a cable or something like that. Can't remember the details exactly.

    Every once in a while these little bits of info he lets out. He also said that he gets kicked out of every band that he’s been in because he gets restless or bored , and wants to be in charge.

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen
