The Rise and Fall of SAM

by Rick Altizer

"A politically charged concept album with a more serious twist and even some Pink Floyd influence poking through the hooks. This is his most consistent and artistic yet featuring the best hooks and melodies of his career." Tony Shore – ObviousPop
Genre: Rock: Progressive Rock

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The life of a rock star as a metaphor for the decline of America and the dangers of the entitlement generation. $AM starts out life demand fed and pacified. He grows up with a sense of entitlement. He becomes a star and attracts the attention of a record company who seeks to gain power from him. $AM has not been taught delayed gratification so his character is self centered. He is pampered, gets everything he wants and soon becomes incapable of taking care of himself. His desire is for the record company to take care of him. This desire soon turns into a need. He becomes a non-functioning, incoherent addict in an assisted living facility. The person he once is now gone forever.
