    Default On This Day............

    On this day in 1978, after four years of playing virtually every club and backyard in Southern California, Van Halen signed their first recording contract. It was at that time that publicists subtracted a couple years from each member's age to make them seem even more astounding.

    I've never heard of this one.

    How many years are we missing here??

    For all of them???
    And is it dog years or human years??

    Two years for each but I believe they have adjusted back the time after Dave left. For sure, Edward turned 51 this year.

    I also heard that Warner Bros., finally signed the band after receiving a threat from Eddie that he would kick every record exec. in the cup if they didn't get a record deal.

    ...

    I thought they got signed with WB way back to May, 1977.
    Then they released "YRGT" as their 1st single in 1/28/1978 and "Van Halen" in 2/10/1978.
