    Anyone know who the kid is (belongs to) on the cover of "Balance."? I remember when my brother saw the cover for the first time he said it looked like it could be a "Van Halen." Any ideas anyone?

    I know it's not a Van Halen cause it says the kid's name in the VHE. I don't have it with me right now though.

    Damn, I always thought it was Wolfie.

    I guess I have to buy the VHE.

    Actually the VHE says it is a digitally touched up picture of the same kid. It is not. It is a brother and sister, or two sisters. I can't recall. If you watch the Toronto vid, at the end it shows both of them. You can tell it is TWO different kids. I think I even read about that photo somewhere. Al talks about the kids and the photo. I am pretty sure about this one, but I have been wrong before. Out.

    OK, I went back and read the VHE. Where it lists all the shows for the Balance tour, it says, as a note, that the kid was brought out in the middle of the show and Sammy introduced him to the crowd as the kid on front of the Balance cover. Unfortunely, I was wrong, it didn't say the kid's name. But it did say that it was one kid and obviously not Wolfie.

    I have to say that the Balance cover is pretty damn cool. The little video with the kids at the end of the Toronto show was kind of wierd, did they shot that when they shot the cover photo? That was the only time I saw it.

    If you allready dontīt know, there was a different version for japanese market. It had only one kid, becouse siamise twins are somehow considered unproper for CD cover work. Itīs a cultural thing, I donīt know the details.

    You could have bought the cd single of CSLY. It's on there too. I "conviently" had a copy of that made.
