    Right now I'm listening to the screwed up version of Runnin' With The Devil from the Detroit Rock City soundtrack and thought of something as the song was starting. What if VH started the concerts with this song and had a huge video screen showing a car in the night, flying down the highway with its headlights on bright? You know, the horns at the beginning of the song sounding as the car comes flying at you. It should show some kid just about to get hit, and just as he is about to get hit, the screen should shut off and Mikey should start playing the bass intro to the song. Kinda like some mini-movie at the start of the show. How does that sound?

    I love the mini movie idea. Here's how I would do it in relation to your idea. Have the car screaming down the highway at a person wearing VH stripes. When the car hits the person, the car is smashed to pieces. The person, who is unhurt, looks at the camera and says "they never learn". At which point the entire arena goes black and Eddie starts wailing away until they do the "Mighty Van Halen" intro.

    That's genius Glenn! Of course only one guy should be the one in this video.......

    David Lee Roth!

    And maybe they could include the video clip on one of the CD's in that box set you keep waiting for?

    have that guy who does the the voice-overs for movie trailers while you hear the engine racing in the dark "THEY ONCE RULED THE EARTH, THERE WAS NO EQUAL, (insert a couple of quick live clips from 84') DURING THEIR ABSENCE THERE HAVE BEEN MANY WHO TRIED. NONE HAVE SUCCEEDED. (background horn gets louder)NOW THEIR BACK TO KICK THE WORLDS ASS ONCE AGAIN, THE MIGHTY VAN HALEN. (car hits Dave, explodes, he turns to the camera, close up, eyebrow shrug, grinning from ear to ear)

    Then Dave comes through the screen and they kick into Runnin' with the Devil. Sorry guys, i got carried away

    You folks have some pretty good ideas. I would love to see VH open up the show the way it should be. You want to be so pumped up that by the time the music plays, you are out of your mind!!!

    I think you guys should all be hired by VH to take care of all the graphics! Some pretty innovative ideas here...I especially like the idea of showcasing the Diamond!!
