"Bond of Union" album which sees Berry joined by former Sammy Hagar and Boston guitarist Gary Phil, ex- Sammy Hagar, Montrose, and Night Ranger keyboard man Alan Fitzgerald, and another ex- Hagar band player, drummer David Lauser. Not too heavy, not too light – just perfect, middle of the road classic melodic rock, with keyboards mixing equally with guitars and smooth vocals gliding over everything.
"I Never Said Goodbye" is a Sammy Hagar solo album, his only solo album released while he was a member of Van Halen. It is his ninth solo studio album. The album was recorded in ten days as a contractual obligation to Geffen Records as a condition of his leaving the label to join Van Halen and their record label, Warner Bros. Records (Geffen's distributor at the time, and also Hagar's home when he was part of Montrose).
VOA was the last album Sammy Hagar recorded before he became the lead singer of Van Halen, and this effort shows why he was invited to join the band. With songs like "I Can't Drive 55," he adds a simple melody to the song which never distracts from the all-important, hard-driving riff. On "Two Sides of Love," he shows that he has the ability to pull off a power ballad, wrenching every bit of feeling out of the song. Like Hagar himself, VOA is never subtle, but in hard rock, that's a positive attribute.
Three Lock Box is Sammy Hagar's seventh solo album, with appearances by Loverboy's Mike Reno, Journey's Jonathan Cain and Mr. Mister's Richard Page. His only top 20 solo hit, "Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy", reached #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1983.
