View Full Version : Funky ass outfits!

Dave's 1984 red jock strap?
Eddie's signature leather patchquilt jeans?
Michaels cheese medallions?
Alex's zipper vests?

Eddie's FW era stripped socks take the cake for best ever rock outfits.

Were the chaps during the VH days, or solo. Something tells me they were from his Eat Em and Smile period.

Nah, I think they were retired by then. He wears 'em for the encore at the '83 US Festival.

I think Eddie's striped socks were a reaction to Dave telling him "Wear this, wear that, dance like this, play like that" and he just finally said "Fuck you, Dave, I'll wear striped socks and hike my pants up to the knee if I want!" And Dave said "You fuckin' better not." And Eddie did, and the rest is history!

Also, I love how in the Jump video, Dave changes clothes like three times and no one else does!

Yeah, I seen pics from the '83 US Fest in which Dave is decked out in the assless chaps. http://www.vhlinks.com/vhlforum/smilies/biggrin.gif Mmmmmrrrrrrrrowww!

Lead Synth is correct..DLR ass is showing for all the females who care. Eddie jams all concert long except for the wireless guitar problem during Eruption....I could care less about what they wore back then

Let us not forget about the WACF tour. Dave with his spandex on WITH big furry white leg wormers on as well. You just don't see that every day. Out.

I love the caption underneath one of the photos in Dave's book. "Do I look flammable or what?"

Mike always had cool t shirts. My fav was the one with the pic of Marlo Thomas on it and it said That Slut instead of That Girl.

Didn't Mike have a Frankenstein T also?

I dig Eddie's jump suits, like the one on the cover of Inside featuring his axes. Or the one where he's sitting on his silver jeep. If you tried to pull those out today, (unless you fly an F-16) you'd get some attention pronto!

How bou't Dave's big "D" medallion? HA!

Daves oversized leg warmers must be one of the funniest things in the history of the world. Too wild!

Might buy some. "Hey babe, you might laugh at the car.. but my leg warmers are PLUSH!"

A little zen... Headed your way...

Eat Us and Smile ;>~

feelin' it down to my knucklebonez

Hey Hain, I think that was me that had the chaps mixed up. Now dude, you know that I know Van Halen was around back then. I just happened to be mixed up because I'm positive that Dave wore chaps in the Yankee Rose video. I am aware of the bands' history.http://www.vhlinks.com/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif
