    Stalking not recommended. Out of the blue call from a complete stranger to come sign up at a VH website?

    Nah.

    Besides, the Lost Weekend bootleg pretty much covers that guy's story.

    Well buddy I did not consider it stalking,I figured one fan from another to the inside on the experiance is all was seeking.I guess you are right though.

    Hell, what do you have to lose? More than likely he would be flattered that someone would want to talk to him about it and would probably be pretty excited to talk about it. Maybe if you called him and talked dirty to him or peeped in his windows then i could see him getting upset, but with the subject being his experience partying with van halen, i dont see any harm. I say go for it!

    Since the VH Bros are not commenting the RNRHOF nomination, it's that guy's DUTY to talk to you on the phone and give you his point of view.

    Roll of the dice. If he's cool, I'd like to hear his view. Some people (I admit, myself included) would think it's odd.

    If you decide to, then cool, but it's almost kinda like having a salesperson call. Maybe if you got his address, a letter might be better. (Or e-mail) Just my opinion my sunshine state brotha! GO BUCS!

    I know The Inside Magazine did a huge feature on this guy that I thought was very well written and informative. All kinds of stories about strippers and debauchery as to what happened to the winner and his buddy that weekend. The next issue of the Inside was filled with all kinds of retractions from the winner of the orignial story saying, I'm paraphrasing, "I never did this and I never did that". This has me thinking he may not really want to come out again to relive it (for whatever reason).

    Can anyone back me up on this? Or post the article from the Inside?

    If the Inside did an interview with him allready.

    Yeah, I always wondered why the writers made up all the extra stuff. It made me think twice about that magazine. Sort of like, "What else are they lying about?"

    Yeah, either that or it was all true and the winner caught all kinds of BS from his wife, girlfriend, boss or whatever. Maybe Jeff Hausmann (sp?), Brad or Brett would know. I'm going to try to dig that old issue out. I remember reading that interview at the time and wishing I had won that contest all over again. Then, next issue, all the X-Files-like retractions at the back of the magazine.

    If a present fan calls a past fan, will a future fan answer?

    wow, he's a helluva lot nicer than i am, i guess. if some guy called that didn't know me asking about something like that that, well, let's just say there wouldn't be a conversation.
    but that's cool, to each their own.
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red
