    Default Cool Van Halen Display that I've never seen discussed here.

    Here's a pic I snapped with my son at the Hard Rock Vault in Orlando last year. Interesting mix of stuff including a pair of Dave's pants from an early tour, a pair of red gloves that Dave wore on the Diver Down tour and (I think)the axe that Eddie donated to the Hard Rock in New York back in '85. Hadn't seen in mentioned here so I thought I'd post the pic; not sure what happened to this stuff since the Vault has closed its doors...

    Nice memoribilia case. You'd think the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland would have something like this, at least a small display of =VH= memorabilia... but they don't. Not a pick, not a drumstick, not a lyric about/from VH. You don't have to be an inductee to have shit in there either, there's lots of obscure stuff in there from other bands who weren't inducted.

    Half of the shit in the RRHOF are "on loan" from the artists, too, meaning that the artists can take it back at any time. You know how much shit Edward could loan? The A-bomb rack, the original Marshall Plexi, the FrankenStrat, wardrobe etc etc.

    How cool would it be to see that shit?

    The stuff in the Hall doesn't have to come just from the artists, fans can donate items as well. I know that there's a movement underway (by a fan or two) to get a display of items for the band Boston in there...

    That stinks that the Vault closed! I was there a couple years ago (had my picture taken in front of that same case, but my friend STILL hasn't sent me her pictures!!!AAAAAAAAAAH!) and I thought the place was pretty cool.

    That's Ed's Kramer he used as a back up guitar to the 5150 on the 1984 tour, and if you pop in the Hot for teacher video thats the guitar he used!! Ed gave various kramer backup guitars to several Hard rocks!

    I've got an unedited video interview w/ Ed and Val at the Hard Rock in '85. I think the gal doing the interview was Martha Quinn.

    Martha asks if Ed would do a quick promo for MTV and he reluctantly agrees. You can tell by watching the video that Ed is really not interested in doing the promo and would rather be playing his guitar.

    I believe its the same guitar pictured above. Interesting to watch.

    Anyone else seen this?
