I like things that make me smile. ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œÃƒâ€šÃ‚Âº I just got done watching the boys here play "Down the Drain" off of "Get Your Buzz On Live!" once again, and I forgot how much fun it is to watch these 4 guys jam together. It never ceases to amaze me how when people get together to do something that they not only love, but at which they are extremely talented, they just project that energy on to anyone who is watching. It doesn't matter if you were actually there, or watching it on a DVD some time later, it's infectious just the same.
Hell yes, I not only picked up 13 mini Blue Bottles today (some of the last to be had in this whole state!!), I also went to a super awesome place called Jerry's Records. Jerry's deals in NOTHING but vinyl, he doesn't even take credit cards!! I scored the 10 discs you see above plus one for a friend, and they are in SUCH good shape!! I didn't originally buy them to listen to, I want to display the covers here in my Sammy room, but I have not yet heard some of the live records. Guess it's time to blow the dust off of the ol' turntable and see if it still works!!
Not sure if this site is ever going to offer any sort of Sammy merchandise again, but if you do, may I make a suggestion? Old school. Reprint some cool vintage stuff (see example above!) if you can. I know things like licensing and what not can be tricky, but I think it would be so neat to not just be able to get our mits on current Sammy schwag, but sport some stuff from the early years as well. I enjoy the hell out of his whole career, from before I was even born up 'til now, as I know so many of us do. That t-shirt pic up there? OMG I would buy that in a second if it was available!!
...and you have Sammy blasting from the box, and you're singing along, if you are not TOTALLY exhausted and sweating when you're done....
You're doin' it wrong. ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œÃƒâ€šÃ‚Âº
Glad everyone got back from Cabo safely. Let's burn up this damn winter season and gear up for everything that's comin' at us in 2011.
Every time I add to my ever growing collection of Sammy's music, I like to post a little something when I am really impressed by my latest acquisition. I figured, what better time to do so than on the eve of 10/13. For anyone who is growing tired of my blogs or record reviews around here, feel free to move on, this one may be a tad lengthy. I'm sure this blog will fast get buried under all of the Cabo hoopla and that's cool, but I write these blogs for myself, and my close RedHead pals who I know appreciate what I put forth here for everyone.
I just wanted to say how much I freakin' love this album. Sorry it took me this long to get around to listening to it!
Hope all you hard-cores are having a blast south of the border, and hope the rest of you are having blast doing whatever it is you're doing in whatever part of the world you're in doing it in.
Just wanted to tell all my favorite RedHead pals how much I hate you for being able to go to Cabo without me. :-p HA!! You know I'm just teasin' all of you...ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¥ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œÃƒâ€šÃ‚ÂºÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¥ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œÃƒâ€šÃ‚Âº
Seriously, I wanted to say to EVERYONE who is making the trek to have a blast, but first and foremost have a safe trip, be smart, and get back in one piece to rub it in...er... I mean SHARE all your crazy pics and stories with the rest of us poor saps who wanna be there so bad we can taste it. *smack smack*...mmm, sorta tastes like salt and limes...
Okay I asked this over on FB too but figured I'd give the die hard RedHeads a chance too.
So Cabo Wabo Vegas was asking on FB, what's your favorite Sammy song? If YOU can pick just one, congrats, I sure cant'. But here's my version...
If Sammy showed up on your doorstep tonight with his guitar and said "You and I are gonna sing together. You get to pick JUST ONE song from my whole career, from Bad Motor Scooter to Poundcake to Bitten by the Wolf...just one..."
What would you choose?
Have fun with this one!!
...summer, that is. I went outside with my dog the other evening, it was very cool, I could hear the sounds of the local high school football game being played, and could smell someone's fireplace or firepit burning somehwere nearby, so I knew it wouldn't be long. Fall is just a few days away, and while it is normally my favorite season, I am kind of sad to see this summer come to an end. This summer, will always go down in my books, as the "Summer of Sammy", when Chickenfoot helped me discover the wonderful world of RedHeads.
Well RedHeads, I am back, and as you can see, a full fledged member of the RedHead family. What an amazing experience this was. Let me start by saying that everything everyone has always said was SO true, Sammy and his people are just awesome. So gracious, couldn't have asked for a better time. I met SO many RedHeads and loved them all!! Apologies to anyone I called by the wrong name, or just flat out forgot your name. I met, hugged, kisssed, and partied with so many of you, and it was the most fun I think I have ever had. you guys and gals all made me feel SO loved and welcome.
