I hope the Redhead Nation and Sammy himself just caught the performance of James Durbin on American Idol just now. The kid performed Heavy Metal and tore the house down with Zakk Wylde. OH MY GOODNESS!!! I am sure this performance will be posted up on YouTube shortly, so if you did not catch it live, look this thing up. I am hereby calling out each and every Redhead to petition the American Idol producers to bring Sammy on for their big finale show to perform this live with James.
Every once in a while I will check in on the History tab / I was there concert section to see if they have added in any new past performances for us to select. Unfortunately, the webmaster seems to be a little behind, so I figured I would go ahead and add my own list in here. Take a gander, maybe some of you were at these shows as well.
Chickenfoot - August 30th, 2009 - Atlanta, GA

Okay folks, I REALLY need to vent here for just a moment. I am in St. Louis on business and wanted to take my friend/boss over to Sammy's Beach Bar & Grill at Harrah's Casino. The dude was really excited and even bugged me about it for a couple of weeks leading up to the trip. However, there is only one major problem. Harrah's has decided in their infinite wisdom to close Sammy's on Mondays and Tuesdays. Really people??? Are they serious???
Anything Sammy (+) St. Louis (=) SUCCESS.
TGIF My Fellow RedHeads:
I was running some errands at lunch today, and was hit with an epiphany when the Thin Lizzy classic "The Boys Are Back In Town" came on the radio.
