Happy Anniversary 'Danger Zone'!
Happy Anniversary 'Danger Zone'!

1979 my solo career was just getting off the ground. we toured nonstop from 1976-1985. 'Danger Zone' was a pretty cool record. as a writer I was trying to stretch out, and coming from all over the place from a ripping "Love or Money" with Neal Schon on guitar, to the trippy, artsy-fartsy "Danger Zone" title track. I had Steve Perry and Neal Schon, who had just finished the Journey record, hanging around and singing and playing on this record. it was my last Capitol record before I signed with Geffen Records and had my first platinum solo record.

Filling in for the Foo Fighters @ Beale Street Music Fest
Filling in for the Foo Fighters @ Beale Street Music Fest

When we were asked by the promoter to fill in for the Foo Fighters at the Beale Street Music Festival, my first reaction was 'No fucking way!' We discussed it as a band, & we came up with 'Why not! Let's just go play music and you're at a big ass Circle party for those people, just do what we do!' Then with Dave Grohl's blessings we decided to do a broken down version of one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands. It felt appropriate. No rehearsal, After all this is rock 'n' roll and thats what it's all about. Enjoy. - Sammy

Strat Weekend #3
Strat Weekend #3

It doesn’t get much better than that to close out our 1st residency run! All the years playing with Mikey, Mona, Vic and Bro came out like a wave of synchronicity. No setlist needed as we rode the jam from "Turn up The Music, to AC/DC’s "Problem Child" (a highlight of the night for me and one I haven't played in at least 20 years) to Montrose "Make it Last"" (the second song I ever wrote in my life!) and “Be Still” a new song we performed live for the first time (minus Jason) but yes—new album coming soon!

First Weekend of the Strat Residency
First Weekend of the Strat Residency

The first weekend of the Vegas/Strat residency was as much fun as I've had anywhere in the world on stage. Cabo, Catalina, Vegas all on the same level of pure rockin spontaneous fun. Setlist Saturday night might've been my favorite of all time!

I can't believe how many redheads saw both shows! Which do you think was the best night!! Wabos got some work to do next weekend!!!

RIP Claudio Zampolli
RIP Claudio Zampolli

Claudio Zampolli was a genius mechanic. Especially Italian high-performance engines. He got me my 512 Boxer (the “I Can’t Drive 55” car), my first new Ferrari, and many more after that. He's the mechanic in the "I Can't Drive 55" video. He's the guy that gave Eddie Van Halen my phone number where Eddie called me from his shop - two days later I was in Van Halen. He was the whole band's mechanic and took care of all of our cars. He also made his own car the ultra exotic Cizeta.
