Sammy's At It Again!


Recommended Posts

Sammy (unlike another VH vocalist) is one of the few vocalists that's been able to retain the majority of his vocal chops and signature style.  Liked his stuff with Chickenfoot and if this tune is any indication, looks to be dishing up some more straight ahead rockin'.

I urge everyone to go back and listen to those first three Post VH Sammy Solo Albums. The Songs, Lyrics were just on fire. Crazy Good.

You're of course joking.... Sammy is a lazy lyricist and even at his best he's not particularly good. The lyrics are the specific cringe on the Sammy era VH albums and the one flavour (Tropical fruit punch)vocal timber is the other.

This verse is always MAXIMUM CRINGE when I hear it. It doesn't take a genius to realize it's cliche and sounds horrible.

I tell myself
Hey, only fools rush in
And only time will tell
If we stand the test of time
All I know
You've got to run to win
And I'll be damned if I'll get
Hung up on the line

As for his vocal chops, he played it much more safe with his vocal lines, relying less on going to the limit of his range. This both makes it easier to sing now that he's older, and also probably didn't tear the hell out of his vocal cords during his prime.

lol.  We could easily have a whole thread dedicated to Sammy's crappy lyrics.  Another cringer:

Some kind of alien

Waits for an opening

Then simply pulls a string

Love comes walking in

It's not the lyrics themselves but how they're sung…

When you're seventeen
Reachin' for your dreams
But don't let no one reach 'em for you
Pull off your pants
Stretch out take a chance 
If it can be done, you can do it
'Cause you're rock candy baby
You're hard sweet an' sticky~ 🤘

I'll admit that I rarely pay close attention to lyrics, but Sammy with Ronnie Montrose was pure magic.  The soundtrack of my misspent youth.

Get on your bad motor scooter and ride!

The advantage and disadvantage of being a foreign language guy to English language lyrics in this case. You could listen if you wanted to. B)
