    Humans Being video

    I was watching my Van Halen videos DVD the other day. Is it my imagination or does Sammy look really pissed off in the Humans Being video? I know that was around the time when they weren't getting along and shortly before they broke up.

    yeah, I cant figure out if it was intentional because of the song being dark, or just the way he was feeling. Either way, I think you can see alot of tention from all the band members in that video

    I think it must have been about the last thing VH did before Sam left in 1996. I imagine they would have all been a bit pissed off. Shame really, because the song kicks arse.

    Yeah, I think the whole experience of writing and recording Humans Being pissed off Sammy. Then to top it off they had to make a video for it, which probably made him even happier. I heard somewhere that while filming it they weren't even on speaking terms.

    Well, good excuse as any for me to go check out the video to see if I see what you're seeing.

    Sammy & EVH were having issues at that point. Especially since EVH initally didn't care for Sammy's lyrics and even went so far as to add his own voice during the outo on to top of Sammy's.

    But with ed putting his voice on there definatley gave it a more "edgy" feel to it. Whenever I hear eds voice, sams voice and then the guitars, bass and drums on HB, I get chills cuz its just so dam heavy and awesome!

    I had to get my VH DVD out and watch it (never noticed it until now). Ed also breaks a string on LWAN halfway through " I Can't Drive 55". If you noticed he's playing a different guitar near the end.

    I might be goin crazy but I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this on the song humans being. If you listen to the lead parts vs. the rythm parts, you can notice a change in the tone of eds guitar. I know in the video hes playing a pretty normal wolfgang with the 2 stock pickups but on the CD, it sounds like for the leads, hes playing with a sustainer and switching back and forth between the sustainer and the normal pickup.

    Just wanted to see if anyone else has noticed this

    I'm 70% sure I've heard that Edward used a sustainer during Humans Being.

    The reason the tone sounds different is because he was using a neck pickup during the intro...

    ...and the way I heard it, Sam recorded his vocals seperately, sent them to Edward, who didn't like then. Sam said 'Fuck 'Em' and told them it was with those lyrics or with none. They eventually capitulated, but then they told Sam that he had to do the video, and he was already out of the band when they filmed it.

    And Ed breaks his B string twice during the video.

    I think the problems started before this though...I recently obtained the 95 PPV thing from Toronto...They show some brief footage of the boys right before they go on stage...no huddle, nothing...Alex extends a hand towards Sammy as if to shake it, and Sammy as if he knows cameras are rolling gives Al a hug...but it is so forced it is incredible....all the while, Ed is not doing anything....From what I've read of the chapters of Sam's book that didn't get published but somehow landed here....Sam and Ed were fighting that whole tour...but a lot of it had to do with Ed being in so much hip pain.

    They all don't look happy (ok, granted Al never smiles) but I think that had more to do with the darker edge to the song than anything else.

    True, there were problems at the time but even Sam admits he never thought the band would break up. That song and video is truly a statement of where the band was at that time. Ironic since many (including me) consider that to be the best Sam-era tune.

    Call me crazy but I happen to think that Sam really dug that song because in that music video he looks pretty into it whether he was pissed at Ed and Al or if it was just the anger in the song it fit. I can't tell that Ed and Sam look pissed at each other. If Sam really hated the song and the band then he wouldn't have done the video. I think he really liked the song but he hated Ed and Al at the time.

    That video is the best video VH has done ever. Maybe Hot For Teacher is close but not that cool.

    Come on your not gonna tell me that that is not so damn awesome.
