just finished "Red"... seriously could not put it down. i have loved Sammy for decades, but was always a DLR fan when it came to VH. well, pigs are flyin and hell is freezin over cause i am now an official REDHEAD. the book made me want to go get some Sammy music, so i got "the essential red collection" and "best of van halen"... Sammy you are a wonderful man and I want to thank you for sharing your life's story. You had a very hard childhood, but look how you turned out man!! God has really blessed you and your family.
