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.

'Marching to Mars' Turns 25

At the time I was making this record after 10 years in Van Halen not writing solo material, instead co-writing with Eddie. I was like a volcano erupting with creativity once I decided there were no rules for the type of songs I was going to write for my first complete solo album in nearly a decade.

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
