    Default Viva Van Halen Weekend

    I was going through some old video tapes last night and came across something called "viva Van Halen Weekend" I didn't really remember it so I popped it in...

    This could have been one of the coolest things I've seen in years. The band is opening the Cabo Wabo and it's awsome. They're going around cabo messing with the locals, they stop at a taco shop and Sam and Mike are making taco's for Ed and Al, they drive around in this cool "cabo Wabo dune bugy" They do an acoustic version of Cabo Wabo where they are laughing so hard they can't even get through the first 1/4 of the song. Mike puts a big sumbraro on ed and then they rip it out, really cool stuff. They show footage of the soundcheck they did and they play BOBW and Dazed and Confused. Then later they show the actual show the band did, not all of it but bits and pieces, you see them doing summer nights, 5150, FWYS and Rock n Roll with some other guys...really cool stuff. Ed also plays a cabo wabo guitar during an interview....anyone else eveer see this...it's awsome. Hard to believe this is the same band that went out 2 years ago...the vibe was great on this whole thing who would have ever thought it would have turned out the way it did.

    I remember bits and pieces of that. I might have some on tape somewhere.
    I remember them hanging out, Ed playing "Cabo Wabo" on the guitar while Sammy tried singing while everyone was laughing.
    And I thought they were all on quads at one point running around through town.
    Good stuff!

    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    TOOW, that was one sick-ass pic.

    Please don't post it ever again.

    I remember this one but took it for granted that we'd always have 'em around and figured I'd watch it more during reruns. Live and learn I guess.
