Sammy and Eddie perform for the first time ever on this day 30 years ago

Man, do I remember this. I remember hearing the rumor that Sammy was going to be the new singer for Van Halen and when this little gig was announced I knew it had to be true. I recorded it on a VHS tape and wore the damn thing out. I also remember a big KSHE bus sticker being held up by someone in the pit which was the coolest thing ever. Watching this thing just now made me both happy and sad…maybe you'll feel the same way.
