    Yep, I got this for Xmas. It's a good documentary although pretty old, about 10 years. Eddie is on it and so is Dave. There's a chapter on it called Guitar Heroes and it shows Eddie playing "Eruption" from LRHRN concert. He also talks about his liking for Clapton - "I tried so hard to sound like Eric Clapton. For some reason, Clapton was the only one who touched me the guy really made me wanna play" and how he used to sit on his bed practising the guitar and after he got real good - "I got all the pussy I wanted". Dave also talks about his fondness for the music that came out in the 70s. They also show for a few seconds one of the promo clips from The Whiskey in '78.

    Garth Algar: Ha ha ha ha ho!
    Bobby: Who else?
    Garth: Uh, me...and...and Wayne...
    Wayne: ...and uh...VAN HALEN!!!
    Garth: Wow. Van Halen. Who else?
    Bobby: Yeah, who else?
    Wayne: Uh, an old man fashioning a kayak out of a log?

    I just remembered there was also a few seconds worth of early footage of Eddie, looks like it's backstage, saying a few words to the camera then guzzles a bottle of whisky and finishes off by giving that boyish grin of his to the camera.

    Also Dave tells a story how he went to, I think Tibet, and noticed in one of the rooms of the places he visited had a poster of Duran Duran on the wall. To imply how the power of rock 'n' roll impacts even on the most unlikely of places over the world.
