My first time seeing Sammy live was sometime in the early eighties. It was on the VOA tour at the Richfield Coliseum (no longer there) in Richfield, Ohio. Krokus opened. When I first heard of Sammy Hagar, I was on a bus going to school. A friend of mine was returning the Three Lock Box cassette he borrowed from another friend. When I asked who it was the other friend replied "he's good, but not too recognized here in NE Ohio". Naturally I borrowed the cassette, and BOOM!!! I was hooked on this mans music. When VOA came out, I got the album and cassette.
