3.0 out of 5 stars Did you know?, 22 Aug 2011
By 
This review is from: Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock (Hardcover)
First off. Did you know that Sammy was very rich and everything he turns his hand to is mega-succesful?

Did you know that Sammy has his own plane? Personalised Ferrari? Expensive house? Beautiful wife?

Did you know that everyone Sammy has ever been involved with in a group scenario is a dick and Sammy is great?

If the answer to the above is NO and you still want to, then read on

Having followed Sammy's career from Montrose days I was really looking forward to reading this but have to say, the content was so shallow and boastful I barely got to the end.
If your looking for insight into the writing of the many rock anthems Sammy has been involved with then think again. Montrose's debut album is universally regarded as a classic. His involvement with Montrose takes up about a dozen (large font) pages.....considerably less than his ramblings about his (mega-succesful!) Cantina.
His involvement with Van Hagar amounts to little more than "We were the biggest band on the planet and I made millions but Eddie VH / Alex VH / the Manager were dicks" ......and so it goes on

The final page is Sammy telling you he doesnt see himself as anything special or better than you...... obviously, thats if you too, have got the planes and mansions and Ferraris and millions and beautiful wives he's spent most of the book 'impressing' you with...

If you dont mind any of the above then im sure you will enjoy Sammy's Twitterings but I would suggest spending yer hard-earned on 2 far far superior autobiogs - 'Life' By Keef and 'Does the noise...' by Steven Tyler. By the way - 2 rock stars far more famous and far more humble than Sammy

Now tell me again Sammy...how much money do you have????
