    What made Van Halen tick, more than anything else, was this primal approach to the social contract. I don't even know if social contract's an actual term. I use it.

    This is from page 122 of the paperback version of Crazy From the Heat. So I'm reading Fatal Vision by Joe McGinniss right now, it's about the Green Beret murders in 1970, and was published in 1983. And on page 308 it says;

    As far as I was concerned, that was the social contract. That was the duty of the people who held those positions.

    Now THAT is a useless tidbit.

    More perks than Elvis' night stand!!!

    When we interviewed Dave back in '98, he acted like he didn't even remember WHAT he put in his book! We asked a question to the listeners to win tix to see DLR...

    "What album did Dave say he bought 2 copies of to have on hand at all times? Answer correctly and you can win tix to see DLR!"

    Dave responds..."uhh fellas, looks like I might miss the show!"

    (laughter on all parts)

    BTW...the answer was Saturday Night Fever. It's in the book but Dave pretended to not remember what he even put in the book. Silly old beah...

    "Whenever we come to Milwaukee, we try and have a special surprise for you here and tonite we got a whole sh*tload of 'em for you and right now, we want to whip the first one at you here! Y'know, usually Ed doesn't sing this part of the song and when he does tonight for the first time, you'll find out why!"

I swear to God I had this one chick, this chick was poundin' on my door, she was kickin' and screamin' at my door 'til about 6.30 this morning.
