    OK, I don't want to call Dave a liar, but it's a pretty fair bet that he's got the gift of exaggeration by times. And while I love the story in the first few pages of his book about breaking his nose filming a television spot in Europe, I frankly wondered about the validity of the story. But there's a couple pics on the official site that are from Germany 1980 that seem to confirm it.





    As Dave tells the story, after he's suitably recovered they rush back to play the Pink Pop Festival. According to notes, they played one show in Germany immediately prior to the Pink Pop show, and then played several dates in Germany right after the Pink Pop show.

    Whichever Germany show these photos are from, they seem to confirm the story. I wonder if the film of Dave breaking his beak exists anywhere? Now that would be some cool footage. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    They just confirm that he broke it, not that he broke it on a disco ball while flying through the air. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Maybe he DIDN'T break it. He could have just been trying out a prototype Breathe-Right nasal strip YEARS before they caught on with the NFL.

    Looks like the trend lasted about the same length of time for Dave as it did for the football players.

    these pictures are pretty cool, thanx

    everything that reminds me of the videoclip Pretty Woman is more than welcomed

    to me, that was hardcore Van Halen, wild and wonderful

    with 1984, they became another band, and i blame it on the success of that album, that they broke up.

    as long as they didn't really make "it", they just had to stick together ...

    anyway, what a great band

    cheers,

    dave, we'd like to go upstairs, the two of us, with you ...

    Hey!

    Has anyone noticed the shoes Dave is wearing, in the second picture, appear to be red, white and black striped Converse!!! I thought Eddie was the only band member who wore those shoes on stage.
