    Question about 1996

    Back in '96 when the band appeared together at the VMAs, was the Best of Volume 1 out yet, or was it released afterwards?

    Yup, beat me to it.

    Wow, kind of surprised that they released it with the two news songs even after Eddie and Dave had their falling out and the infamous "cup" statement was born.

    They'd also already asked Mitch Malloy to be the new singer at that point, and he'd accepted. Mitch only backed down after he saw the VMAs and told Eddie there was no way VH with a third singer could be successful after that. Shortly thereafter they auditioned and hired Gary. In Dave's press letter following the debacle he mentioned that the new singer "had been hired before the VMAs" (I'm paraphrasing). Most assumed it was Gary. But it wasn't; it was Mitch Malloy. So when VH responded to Dave's letter with their own statement that said they hadn't even met Gary until after the VMAs, it was true. But they were only telling a half truth based on a technicality.

    As one kid I knew in high school used to always say: Dude, that's some fucked up shit.
