Happy Anniversary 'Danger Zone'!
Happy Anniversary 'Danger Zone'!

1979 my solo career was just getting off the ground. we toured nonstop from 1976-1985. 'Danger Zone' was a pretty cool record. as a writer I was trying to stretch out, and coming from all over the place from a ripping "Love or Money" with Neal Schon on guitar, to the trippy, artsy-fartsy "Danger Zone" title track. I had Steve Perry and Neal Schon, who had just finished the Journey record, hanging around and singing and playing on this record. it was my last Capitol record before I signed with Geffen Records and had my first platinum solo record.

Filling in for the Foo Fighters @ Beale Street Music Fest
Filling in for the Foo Fighters @ Beale Street Music Fest

When we were asked by the promoter to fill in for the Foo Fighters at the Beale Street Music Festival, my first reaction was 'No fucking way!' We discussed it as a band, & we came up with 'Why not! Let's just go play music and you're at a big ass Circle party for those people, just do what we do!' Then with Dave Grohl's blessings we decided to do a broken down version of one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands. It felt appropriate. No rehearsal, After all this is rock 'n' roll and thats what it's all about. Enjoy. - Sammy

Strat Weekend #3
Strat Weekend #3

It doesn’t get much better than that to close out our 1st residency run! All the years playing with Mikey, Mona, Vic and Bro came out like a wave of synchronicity. No setlist needed as we rode the jam from "Turn up The Music, to AC/DC’s "Problem Child" (a highlight of the night for me and one I haven't played in at least 20 years) to Montrose "Make it Last"" (the second song I ever wrote in my life!) and “Be Still” a new song we performed live for the first time (minus Jason) but yes—new album coming soon!
