1 GRAND PRIZE WINNER:
Grand Prize entry (John Tindall – Tempe, AZ):
I first heard Sammy back in Montrose and loved the sound. When Standing Hampton came out, the tape never left my player. I lived in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and we saw all our concerts in Spokane, WA. Sammy was coming in concert on my birthday and I had to go. I didn’t have a car yet as my mom, then a single parent, was teaching us kids the value of a dollar. I’d been working and saved up some money, so I went and bought tickets for me and my girlfriend and went to rent a car…but I was stopped dead in my tracks: you had to be at least 25 years old to rent one. The only ‘cool’ person I knew was my girlfriend’s next door neighbor, Bret. When I called him and started to sell my story it didn’t sound like it would fly as he was hung over from the night before…not a good time to drag a person out of home to fill out a bunch of paperwork, not a good time for a car renter to rent to someone red-eyed and reeking of booze.
When I told him of my love of Sammy and it was my birthday, things took a turn that I never could have hoped for. He said it was his birthday too, and they started celebrating early the night before and he would be heading into ‘re-over’ (cure for hang over by getting drunk again), would not be driving, and that instead of renting a car I could just borrow his Porsche! WOW! Um, well…YES! What a great ride to a great show! SAMMY totally kicked ASS all show long.
One footnote: when driving a high performance car and you want to pull over to open some Cold Duck (can’t believe I drank that), do not take an exit that is part of clover leaf as the contents will become shaken, not stirred, and blast out upon opening. Not to fear though, the all-leather interior clean up was a snap. Bret got his car detailed and returned without a scratch and I got to see Sammy on my birthday, one I will never forget. I believe the year was 1983. I also followed Sammy through the VH years…I think that band — notice I didn’t say the name — was at their best when Sammy was at the helm. I saw Sammy rockin’ off on the 5150 tour at Compton Terrace in Phoenix, Arizona, too…another awesome show Sammy put on! Keep rockin’, Red!!!!

Note from Sammy:
December 17, 2008
Thinking back about the events in 2008, all I can say is what a GREAT year it has been!! So many Wabo shows with my bud Kenny Chesney, what a Blast we all had!! This years 2008 Birthday Bash had to be one of my all time favorites!!! The new start of Club 1013, the St. Louis “Blessings in a Backpack” and our NEW album were three of our biggest highlights!! The first Sammy’s Beach Bar and Grill opened it’s doors and has been a huge success!!!
Ya know what? I can’t wait for 2009!!! Are you ready for Chickenfoot?!
