    Thinking out loud

    Dave claimed on his site he's pumped a mill of his own money into this upcoming DVD - now, even the most hardcore Roth nut would have to concede these funds would be difficult to recoup.

    However, what if he's intending to release his vid clip catalog on this disc? Everything from CFTH to present? and he's merely added up the production costs - there would be over 1 million bucks pretty easily I'd imagine.

    1 million, but maybe not 1 million 'new' money?

    I guess after paying people to be in it, audio and video editing costs, cocaine, booze, etc, it would add up to a million bucks.

    That'd be a pretty cool possibility. If that were the case, I'd buy it. If this DVD is just an expansion of sorts on the clip at dlr.com, than he's not getting my money.

    Mostly because I'd have to buy a DVD player to watch it, and I'm not exactly a movie buff.

    If it's a million of new money, than he's gotta sell 40,000 copies at $25 a pop just to cover that cost. Toss in the pressing, distribution, marketing, and retail cuts... He'd likely have to move around 100,000 DVDs to make a buck. That's not going to happen.

    Goo starting a topic!!!!!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I would love for this thing to be a video compilation. Dave's got a couple of videos I've never seen, and the rest I've got on old video tapes that are badly in need of updating.

    That would be cooler to me than 90 minutes of the world according to Dave. But I don't think that's what's going to happen.

    DLR iz no fool. 1 Million (new or old money) would be recoup'd rather quickly with all the VH starved fans out there. Don't know for sure BUT if he did include some DLR versions of classic VH that mill is as good as money in da bank! I&SS

    I doubt this assesment so far as to lay the official proclaimation of "Bullshit" upon it.

    Dave doesn't have enough of a hardcore fanbase left to recoup a million dollar investment unless he's using Sammy's album sales math or does something to make the general public even interested in it.

    </font>[/QUOTE]Stuff,

    Think about this. IF the dvd has the following

    1. Classic VH footage from 70's 80's (DLR private stuff)
    2. Steve Vai-Eat em and Smile Days
    3. Jason Becker/Steve Hunter in the Studio w/DLR footage
    4. Last years DLR doing VH classics footage
    5. Some misc odds and ends

    I think it would definetly make 1 million+.(no matter how much it REALLY cost)

    I agree DLR on his own does not have enuff fan base BUT add some of the stuff I listed above and the interest from the buying public increases ten-fold. JMHO I&SS
