Dutchie: Also, nice to know that Sammy was better than both Al & Mike on the 2004 tour. LSD indeed

If sam said it, it must be true. He doesn’t lie, just ask him.

VAiN: Don’t get me wrong – I agree with what you’re saying. Eddie Van Halen owes me nothing. My point is to the sam crowd – I’m sick of reading BS about how VH is doing nothing with Dave like it’s somehow connected to Dave. That’s all on Ed.

Vain I’m a Sammy fan but I agree with you 100% it’s all on Eddie. Always has and always will be. It’s his band. Nobody knows how to sell Van Halen better than Dave. I just happen to like both the Dave and Sammy eras and I think it would be a fabulous show with both of them together. And not just hearing the great tunes of both eras but both guys are fantastic entertainers on a live stage. They are two of the best at playing to a crowd. I actually think Dave and Sammy would enjoy it more than they could even realize.

I hope you’re don’t think I’m in the Sam crowd from my bingo post. I like solo Sam but not Van Hagar so much. I was just agreeing with him that the current VH lineup isn’t very active. If at all…

Gilligan: I like solo Sam

so what era of solo Sammy is the best?..I saw him in 1976/77/78 and 1980 in fresno…I think the earlier the better..he was an opener for Trower(76)-Supertramp(77)-and Boston.(78).

Well, I listened to a lot of Sammy in the early 80s. Standing Hampton and Three Lock Box were the two albums I owned and played a lot. Later I got the CD of I Never Said Goodbye and liked it. He was never my favorite or anything, but he was right in there with Van Halen, Nugent, Fastway, Priest, Scorpions, Y&T and whatever else I listened to back then. Even Madonna and the Sugar Hill Gang!

the only album I bought of his solo was the nine on a ten scale debut,I bought that after I saw him with Savoy Brown and Robin Trower in 1976..

I’m with ya… it’s frustrating all around, no matter who you prefer as singer. If nothing else open the vaults..

Forgot to quote. This was in response to Sam securing his finances and being worth more than the rest of the band…
Sammy – $120 million dollars
Ed – $85 million
Al – $75 million
Mike – $60 million
Dave – $40 million
Wolf – $10 million

I don’t think these numbers are recent. Sammy earned a total of 94 million off of the sale of the Tequila company alone.

I just searched their net worth by their names and that’s what came up. I’m not their financial analysist or anything. ;)

I thought that initially too, but Mikey stayed in VH while Dale was doing his solo thing. More touring, more album releases, etc.

But from fairly early on, Mike was more or less a hired (salaried) musician in the band. Dave gets royalties from copyrights (song writing) – and that’s where the real $$$ are. In other words, when you hear a VH song in the background of a tv commercial or movie, the payment for the usage of that is mostly going to Dave/Sam and Ed. In more recent years, touring revenue has become a big revenue stream for arena acts. But the income from copyrights is still where the real, long lasting income is at.

You sure about that? The writing credits on the albums is always 4 guys. Did they modify the deal at some point? I know Mike signed rights away, but Al too?
