 18 Redhead Comments

RIRedrocker's picture

So yesterday when I walked up to Sammy to have my book signed, I was very excited, smiled and said "HI SAMMY!" He looked at me, smiled that big smile, reached over the table, grabbed my forearm and said "I KNOW YOU!" I was floored...I said "you recognize me?", he said "of course I do". He went on to sign my book and I showed him my shirt (I had on a GTOBTT t-shirt on) and said "while your promoting your book, I'm promoting your movie". He said, "yes you are"! I went on to thank him for letting us Redheads in on his life with this book and told him his Redheads love him. He stopped signing, looked straight up at me, smiled that big smile, nodded his head and said "I know they do and I know who they are", I said "YES you DO"... he went on to say "Redheads are the best fans in the world", I said "YES they are!"
I'm still in complete awe =)
Sammy REALLY DOES love (and KNOWS) his Redheads!!! ♥

Also regarding the interview above....
Awesome interview from yesterdays book signing at Bookends. So cool that Chuck got his tat signed!! Saw a few of us Redheads on there 2:15 behind Chuck being interviewed you can see me, Heather and Barbara walking up to Sammy!! At 17 seconds there's Al at the end of the line!! NEAT!! =)

The signing at Ridgewood, NJ was from 1-3PM and Sammy was done by 1:30PM because they rushed us through so damn fast! I didn't even have time to take a picture!! What happened from 1:30-3:00PM as I drove home in disgust?

Been a Big fan since the 80's. Heard you on Howard in the AM saying you were gonna be in Jersey from 1-3. I was like cool I can get there a little before 2 and get a book and maybe a pic with ya. So I get there a little before 2 and walk in with a couple of fans talkin it up and looking foward to meeting the Red Rocker himself. Well we get in and the employees are looking like somethin just went down and we are like where do we go. They reply "He left like 15 minutes ago". Huh? Then guy at the cash registers says "We have signed copies and they are gonna be rare!" Huh? The little kid holding the pick guard was like were did he go. Well I hope you had to jet for a good cause IF NOT .... dam

Thanks to Bookends I was able to get a signed copy in the end. They told me they had 600 people show up and he was already done in like an hour and a half. He was in a rush I was told.

Sammy was gracious as always. He looked fan-freakin-tabulous! No glasses...WoooHooo! He was rushed, though. I suppose it is due to his signing this evening. It was great to see some of the same Redheads! Our 9 year old son get to meet a rock legend. How cool is that? See you guys at the next show! Redlove, Rod & Judy

Psyched to see you at Bookends!
It's my boyfriend's birthday that day and SO badly wish you could sign "Happy Birthday!" in his book - Hope you will be as cool as you seem and do that for us;)
Wish we could get a pic w/you too, however, prob not allowing that since I see you have to rush from NJ to NYC for a signing there that night, whew! You're a busy dude!
Peace and LOVE.

RedRocker2's picture and 2 of my Red Rocker kids will see you there!! Can't wait!!
