    It's known as a quick getaway for southern Californian's and tourists alike. It's biggest claim to fame or infamy may be due to RJ & Chris Walken's drunken late night argument that may or may not have contributed to Natalie Wood's suicide (?).

    Anyway, you're probably thinking, what is this?? Well, I was on Catalina three weeks ago and noticed alot of activity in the main harbor, namely, the main decks of a large cruise tour ship were lit up like Christmas on the Sunday morning that I was taking my jog. Well, I thought it strange and also noticed several tell-tale airstreams and trailers parked near the docks that were definitely studio or film crew stuff. Yeah, big deal, they must be filming a movie I thought. Not so big a deal but why was VERY loud music coming from that cruise ship this early in the morning?

    OK, stick with me, I will try to let everyone in on what I think is what all of the fans have been waiting for. I went back to my hotel and went out on the patio with my binoculars. What I saw was enough to bring a big smile to my 34 year old face. I never thought it would happen, I had been a casual observer of this whole internet frenzy for the last few months but this seemed to be what everyone was hoping for.

    What I saw that morning for close to 45 minutes is what I believed to be the filming of a new Video for Van Halen. I could clearly make out David Lee Roth, Edward Van Halen and Michael Anthony from the distance as well as countless film camera's, high powered lights and what appeared to be a film set with several hilarious props. What happened later in the day confirmed my best hopes and suspicions. After losing my wife, I wandered back down to the harbor and saw the film trailer's being loaded up on a barge. Well, about 10 minutes later I saw two scruffy guys with red securtiy bands on their wrists. I could clearly make out the wording Van Halen on the security band.

    I believe what I saw is going to make alot of people out there happy.

    Hi there, what does a first post have to do with it? Feel free to laugh it off but I will chuckle when this video rolls on MTV and so will you. It was hilarious!!

    Ok...I'll bite first!

    What did the music sound like?
    Was it "hard" old VH-style?
    Was it more on the lines of the Best of stuff?
    Tell us more about the hilarious props.
    Could you make out any of the lyrics?
    Was Ed moving around ok?
    Did Al have a neck brace?
    Did Dave move around ok? (back surgery thing)
    Did Mikey still have his mullet?
    Were you there on vacation? your profile says your from NY.

    Thanks in advance for your response.

    ps. look at my "Maybe I'm crazy..." thread in this forum.

    Hi there Blue, well, the music sounded pretty hard and classic to me, although it was annoying because they stopped it and restarted it several times. I never heard a full listen but I definitely heard one signature Dave 'yelp' on it. Ed, Dave and Mike all seemed fine and in hilarious costumes. I never saw Al Van Halen at all that day.

    Edward appeared to be portraying the nerd guy with a white suit and hat on with dark hair. I believe he was Captain Stubing's right hand man. Roth must have been Stubing because he had on a different uniform with funny admiral stripes on the shoulders!!

    It made my year seeing this thing.

    Ah, man...

    I hope this is true.

    You gotta understand our questioning you Midnight Cruiser though....for someone who just comes in out of the blue with this. We've been burnt with stuff like this before....so don't take it personally.

    Can you give us anymore info? Like What were you doing there?

    My wife and I were in the LA area for a week and stayed on the Island for two days as guests of friends (He is GM of the hotel).

    It was a great trip to say the least.

    Damn, Midnight Cruiser, I would LOVE to believe this is true...I would love to....But you understand my doubts...Rumors have burned us so many times we should all be in the burn unit at a hospital...

    We'll see I guess....It sounds like a classic VH style video presentation, which I believe would be cool as shit. Either it's true what you saw or you're just bored and entertaining yourself...


    (I'm hoping you're straight with us on this)

    Midnight Cruiser...

    Can you clarify something for me?
    You said you needed your binoculars...and then saw Ed, Dave and Mike from the distance. But you also said you heard the music. How can you hear the music if you were a distance away that needed binoculars? It was that loud?

    Hate to rain on yer parade guys but not only is this a first post....


    but Midnight Cruiser is a song by Steely Dan. Meaning that this is the same rumourmonger that heard about the 'club dates' at that uptown cocktail party earlier in the week. Which wasn't in Catalina as I recall.

    BOGUS.

    NEXT!!!!!!!
