First time I saw Sammy was with Van Halen, November 1988, at Arco Arena in Sacramento, California. When they hit that stage, I riased my fist in the air and screamed as loud as I could. It was one of the BEST shows I ever saw!!
The show started with a bang and ended with a fire during Led Zeppelin's " Rock And Roll. " Eddie just poured himself into his playing. Sammy inspired everyone with " Eagles Fly. " The whole damn show just FLEW.
