    Van Halen Behind the Music

    Just thought how awesome and fascinating it would be for Van Halen to appear on Behind the Music. With all the turmoil over the years it surely would be one of the most interesting yet. Way more interesting then TLC, or Ashanti, or who ever else has been on there. What do you guys think? Is it possible that they would ever allow it to be done?

    With these guys it would have to be a 10 part mini-series.

    A VH-1 "Behind The Music" has been done with Van Halen. I've seen it - although my tape of it got destroyed.

    It was filmed in about 1992 & really didn't go into too much detail about the split with DLR. Still, it was entertaining & had some new interview footage with the band.

    I'm fairly certain we've never seen a VH BTM come outta VH-1 yet, but considering how tight-lipped the brothers can be, it's not surprising.

    I think they produced it, but when VH declined, they just plugged Def
    Leppard into the gaps.

    Uh, the first two Behind the Musics were aired in August of 1997 on MC Hammer and Milli Vanilli. Van Halen has never done a BTM, they would be great candidates but I'm sure they wouldn't participate. Also, I read somewhere that the only BTM ever made but not aired was on Chaka Kahn, at her request. I don't know what you had on tape but it wasn't a BTM.

    Didn't BTM start around 98-99?

    It would be interesting to see, that's for sure. Too bad it will never happen.

    Is VH1 even making new episodes of Behind the Music?

    I am pretty sure that there hasn't been one. I just remember how entertaining the Motley Crue one was. All of the drama they have had, it probably would have to be at least 2 hours. It would have been great to do it right before the last tour for publicity, I am not sure if the boys have anyone in charge anymore of publicity but I would volunteer.

    I don't think VH1 is making new ones anymore. The last new one had to be a couple years ago. They rarely show any episodes of BTM.

    I think he's talking about the 1986 MTV Rockumentary Van Halen Unleashed!

    Here is a BTM parody I posted in Jan. 2001 for anyone mildly interested and easily amused (also, another allegedly humorous item that I posted about a year later is pasted below the BTM parody).

    *****************

    The following excerpts from "Van Halen: Behind the Music" was sent to me in confidence, but I cannot hide this info. The following quotes and items from the original interview were edited out of the broadcast that will happen several months down the road. [winking]

    On the early years of VH:

    EVH: "The tour we [Van Halen] did with Black Sabbath was wildly intense, but a lot of fun, too. On the one hand, we were trying to expand our fan base outside of Southern California. On the other hand, the parties were incredible. AND THE WOMEN!! We were doing so much blow, so much marijuana, so much alcohol...at one point, Al, Mike, Dave and myself cross referenced all the chicks we had nailed, and we discovered that me and Dave had actually slept together eight times! Which is creepy."

    On the split with Roth in '85:

    EVH: "I was so depressed. I was writing this screenplay called I'm Crazy Because It's Hot and writing the soundtrack as well. Van Halen was going to do the music. It was going to be picked up by CBS productions."
    BTM Director: "Uh, Ed...I hate to interrupt, but Dave was the one writing the screenplay. I think it was called Crazy From the Heat."
    EVH: "That's what Dave wants you to think!!"
    BTM Director: "Uh...Okay, Ed."

    On landing Hagar to Replace Roth:

    EVH: "I had asked Sam to come down to see what might come out of a collaboration together. Sam comes in, listens to my music, and says 'no wonder Roth quit...this music sucks.' I said 'F#ck You, Curly!! I brought you up here as a courtesy to Ted [Templeman]. If you say my music sucks again, you better be wearin' a hat, cause I'm gonna kick you in the nuts!!'"
    Mike Anthony: "Um..Ed...don't you mean "you better be wearin' a cup?"
    EVH: "Uh...YEAH! Whatever!! Shut up, dumbass! I need a cigarette. Mikey - get my lighter!"
    "Anyway, Sam chuckled at the thought of me kicking his balls in, and we both had a good laugh at his expense."
    MA: "Here's your lighter, Ed. Hey, I think Sam was laughing b/c he was a boxer and would have beaten your drunken ass."
    EVH: "Shut up, Mike!! Where's Alex?"

    MA: - to the BTM Director, whispering "Alex has developed some strange habits. He has been sleeping in a coffin in Ed's basement for nearly five years. He has the lid closed and locked until morning. I jokingly refered to Alex as 'Alex Vlad Halen - but he and Ed threatened to kick me in the ball - I had a testicle removed some years ago. Of course, with Ed hobbling around w/ a walker, and Alex locked away in his coffin, I felt confident my ball was safe."

    EVH: "HEY!! I thought you mother f#ckers were here to interview me? Get the hell over here or get the hell out!!"
    BTM Director: "Sorry Ed. Mike was asking if he was needed for any more interviews."
    EVH: "Why? He's a god damned bass player!! He has nothing interesting to say!! Hey Mike...go get Wolfied from school, and then get my dry cleaning. Here's a few bucks and the keys to the mini-van."
    MA: "Sorry Ed. Alex needs his back pills from the pharmacy...see you later."

    On the split w/ Hagar in '96:

    EVH: "Sam's lazy. That is why he was kicked out."
    BTM Director: "In Sammy's defense, he has released three cd's to Van Halen's one. How can you say Sammy is lazy?"
    EVH: "Those were all greatest hits cds, though."
    BTM Director: "No they weren't."
    EVH: "You sure?"
    BTM Director: "Yes."
    EVH: "Hmm...maybe Alex was wrong. WHERE'S ALEX?!?"

    Ed and the BTM Director go to Ed's basement, where Alex is still in his coffin.

    EVH: "You said Sammy was lazy, Alex!!"
    AVH: "mumble, mumble, mumble..."
    EVH: "What?!?"

    Ed unlocks Alex's coffin, and Alex sets upright, but does not remove his Rayban sunglasses.

    AVH: "I said 'Sam was having a baby!' You never f#ckin' listen, Ed!
    EVH: "F#ck You, VLAD!!"
    AVH: "The coffin helps my back, jackass!!"

    The brothers begin to scuffle, but the fracas ends quickly as Alex's back locks up, and EVH is unable to kick Alex in the balls b/c of his plastic hip.

    On EVH's Hip Problem:

    EVH: "Because of my drinking, my weight ballooned to 235 lbs. I'm only 5'10", so that was quite a bit of weight to put on."
    AVH: "You're 5'3", Nut Knocker."
    EVH: "WHATEVER!! Anyway - I got up to 235 lbs and it was putting a lot of stress on my joints. So, before I could get a new hip, my aroma therapist suggested I lose some weight."
    BTM Director: "Aroma Therapist? You didn't have an orthopedist do the hip replacement?"
    EVH: "A what? Ortho-what? What are you talkin' about?"

    On AVH's Neck Problem:

    EVH: "The aroma therapist..."
    BTM Director: "ED!!!! Have you guys seen DOCTORS?"
    EVH: "No - why??"
    AVH: "Buddy, you better shut the f#ck up or we are going to beat your f#ckin' ass. We know what's best for us. OH...MY BACK!!"
    EVH: "Lay down, Vlad."
    AVH: "F#ck You, Nut Kicker!!"
    ***********************************

    Note: This is simply my attempt to lighten the mood here, a little, by poking fun at our favorite band. Please do not take this as criticism of the band. I had some time on my hands and decided to poke some fun at Halen.

    To Van Halen: TELL US SOMETHING, PLEASE!!

    **************************************************

    In addition, here is another original take-off I posted in Feb. 2002:

    AP News Service
    Los Angeles, CA
    20:33 February 28, 2002

    LOS ANGELES - In the wake of Warner Bros. and Van Halen parting company, and several members of the Van Halen organization leaving, two more members of the highly successful southern California band have decided to part company with the band.

    In separate press releases, Alex Van Halen's "Black Sunglasses" and "The Neck Brace" stated that they have decided to leave the Van Halen fold.

    Black Shades, as it prefers to be called, stated that it was time to pursue other work, noting that "those bastards from Ray-Ban and Oakley have been hassling me and have been courting Alex for sometime now, and I have simply had enough. Alex was always talking about 'loyalty', but he never once publicly proclaimed that Black Shades was his one and only choice of sunglasses. I became irritated with always looking over my shoulder at the others."

    Blade Shades went on to note that while it is over for its association with Alex Van Halen, it was uncertain as to the future of Van Halen.

    Neck Brace, a few hours later, stated that Alex was simply becoming a pain in the brace, and the unfavorable treatment that Alex Van Halen subjected Black Shades to was simply too much at this time.

    Neck Brace concluded the press conference by noting that "while I can say with no certainty that Van Halen, the band, is over, you will know it is over WHEN the hair lard (aka "Pig Fat") decides to call it quits." Neck Brace intimated that Pig Fat nearly joined the departing duo, but opted to stick it out a bit longer in the hopes that there would once again be peace in the Van Halen camp.

    When contacted, Alex Van Halen simply stated that he was sad to see his longtime friends go, but he still has their phone numbers, and "maybe, just maybe, we will get this circus back together for a kickass tour."

    David Lee Roth, when asked about the situation, stated "Bulzy-bulzy-bop-zity-bop!!"
