    If you haven't seen it the Sam Bush Documentary on amazon is fantastic.
    I always liked the clips of Sam and Tony from this festival:

    Finally got to see it today - finally for sale in Australia: thanks to the distributors and Vimeo. You're right, it is fantastic.

    Happy Birthday Sam.

    Happy (one day late) Birthday to one of my personal heros, not just on the mandolin, but in life. Cheers and many more. 👍

    Silly question....if you purchase Revival off amazon, is it just a file that you download?

    That Eight More Miles video is one of my favorites. That's one smooth rendition there. Carl's harmony is awesome too.

    wow,never seen hoss with the fla. still attached like in the one tin soldier video. maybe i'm wrong but i bet
    getting rid of that fretboard extension helped sam be able to develop his rather unique right hand style.

    back then he was still picking like a normal human being,er more conservatively. and not getting as much out of hoss as we have come to
    appreciate and expect.

    thanks for the videos,gentlemen.

    Happy Birthday to Sam.

    There is so much great playing he has done......will do....for a man that plays just about any style in a very convincing manner I was still somewhat surprised when I heard him sit in with Jorma at a festival and nail Jorma's stuff like he has been playing it his whole life. Who knew.

    I think his right hand style at least partially developed out of getting his hand smashed in a car door way back when.

    An inspirational artist.

    Thank you Sam!

    I saw Sam at an outdoor street festival several years ago. My wife and I arrived about two or three hours early to set up our chairs then go find dinner. When we got there a few guys were messing around on stage sound checking and tuning. I looked closer and realized it was Sam and the band. They started playing a little. They ended up doing about a five song mini set for the eight or nine of us hanging around. They played just as hard and with as much energy as when I saw them at Merlefest playing for 50,000. A fine musician and human being.
