    Here goes one. During the 1986 MTV Music Awards, Van Halen performed live from New Haven with "Best of Both Worlds." Being that the Van Halen segment still remains the longest live segment during an MTV Awards in their history, clocking in at 19 minutes, what additional cover song did they perform duing this segment?

    No. That is a good guess, Glenn because they did Wild Thing extensively on that tour . . .but that is not the answer.

    Georgie, the dates may be wrong, but the VH Encyclopedia shows the 1986 MTV awards as being on September 9, while VH played New Haven on August 26 and 27th, the latter of which was where LWAN was filmed.

    Anyway, my next guess is Rock and Roll.

    I am sorry. The city location was wrong. I should have just focused on the awards itself. When MTV swung coverage to the live Van Halen show in 1986, courtesy of Marth Quinn, what cover song did they perform in conjunction with Best of Both Worlds during that record breaking 19 minute segment?

    Wild Thing and Rock and Roll were not the songs during that segment. Other gueses?

    Another little tidbit for you guys. Aparently, VH used to play that tune every night in the tune up room before all the shows on the 5150 tour!

    Why the hell would they edit out a cool lil' jam like that? I wonder if they threw in some A Apolitical Blues,too. I think they edited out "Outside Woman Blues,"too.

    That whole version is floating around on bootlegs for those of you that haven't seen it. Very cool to compare the actual "live" version of BOBW and the one on "Live without a Net." Out.

    Is there an MP3 recording of VH playing Addicted to Love? I'd certainly love to hear it!

    I found an MP3 of it on Napster, but it "Timed Out" on me. At least that's proof that it's out there somewhere. I'm going to try to download it again later.
