Man, I still can't believe it's been almost a week since the book signing. I never thought I'd see Sammy in my own hometown! It was like winning the lottery. The last time I'd seen him perform was during the Van Halen OU812 tour. After that I was always stuck working or too broke for tickets. But from the Montrose days up till now I always listened to his music. It got me through my teens, my tour in the Navy and helped keep me sane while recovering from major spinal surgery. Whenever I plugged in it was like visiting with an old friend.
