I did not know Sammy personally how ever one of his famous songs Chevy Van played a roll in my life as well as so many others lives during that time. so often we hear a song we like, respect the creator, but fail to explore the other many songs written by the artist. I had no idea how much music he had written for other artist until now. Rest in Peace Sammy your legacy and musical talent will live forever in many of our hearts and lives. we thank you for so many years of giving through your music. you will be missed and never forgotten.
