    Default My VIDEO Vault is open - Going Back to David Lee Roth Weekend 1985!!

    This is CLASSIC!!

    Any of you remember Memorial Day Weekend 1985 when MTV declared it David Lee Roth Weekend?? Well if you do this will take you back!! If this doesn't make you feel 17 again nothing will.

    I dug out an old video tape that I literally have not looked at in 20 years. On it were clips I recorded of DLR Weekend. I remember that weekend like it was yesterday. I sat in front of the tube all weekend with the VCR remote in my hand waiting to record anything and everything Dave. There is so much funny shit on here I don't know where to start. This thing is a true time capsule of MTV circa 1985.

    There are two 6-minute parts so be sure to watch them both. Everyone should enjoy the hell out of this.....classic Diamond Dave. The fucking guy was great.

    yeah, and rock ruled the land... we tried really hard to nip "yo! mtv raps" in the bud real early, but it somehow perservered like the cockroach, which has been around for millions of years...

    Shit, it looks like there was a technical glitch. These clips were 6 minutes each but apparently they're pausing after two minutes. Damn, sorry about that!! I'll check it out and fix it.

    PROBLEM SOLVED. Both clips should play in their entirety now....sorry for not having it right the first time.

    Do you guys remember this? Do you already have this on tape yourself? Just curious to see how 'rare' this shit is. I can't say I've ever seen any of it until I broke out my tape yesterday. Let me know if there are any problems viewing it.

    Thanks for the video clips, Double Down. Reminds me of the times when my brother and I would skip school to watch MTV, kick back and drink some brewskies. (while the "MOMster" was at work, of course. LOL)

    Both clips played pretty smooth without any real glitches...so you're good to go!
