    Default VH almost in Rock N Roll High School...

    I was watching the DVD last nite of the Ramones film Rock n Roll High School. I was listening to the director's commentary and he was speaking about the different bands/performers they tried to get before they decided on the Ramones. The first choice was Todd Rundgren, then it was almost Cheap Trick.... but they wanted a little more $$ than Roger Corman wanted to spend. They went to Warners looking for suggestions and Warners suggested Van Halen who had just released their first record. But the director said VH's management claimed they'd be too hard to control, too "wild", so they moved on and ultimately went with the Ramones (who I think were a great choice).....

    just thought you'd guys wanna hear that small tidbit....

    Can you imagine how different the music would've been if it had been VH? It would've turned into an entirely different film. I just can't see Dave singing "rock, rock, rock, rock, rock and roll high school"!

    That'd be pretty cool! I like The Ramones and VH (nah duh!), so that would be a big decision to make!
    So you broke down, trying to leave town, I broke down crying on your return. You left me feeling hopeful, I'll never see your face again. You made for a bad lover's liver. You stole all the covers and busted my head. You made me such an asshole, I wish we'd never met. I'm tired of being bored. I'm through with the headaches. Hiding my hands that tremble like earthquakes. Under the table, under the daytime sky, Good Fucking Bye- Good Fucking Bye, Alkaline Trio

    Besides VH, WB also suggested Devo. That would have been weird, too.

    Speaking of the Ramones, Monte Melnikc, their tour manager, recently released a book on the band called "On The Road With The Ramones."

    It mentions the VH - Rock and Roll High School connection, plus it includes a photo of Monte with Eddie, and a quote or two from Dave.

    If you are Ramones fan, it is a quick, fun read.
