I'm writing this from the U.K. A good friend of mine is a writer for the BBC and has just pitched an idea for a radio documentary about Van Halen. They're interested but want to hear more about why it would make a good show and being a fan he's contacted me for a few ideas. I don't just want to give him the usual 'Best Guitarist, Greatest Showman and Brown M&M's' routine and was just wondering if anybody could pass on a few of their own favorites stories about the band because there will be loads that I've forgotten or never heard. Hopefully we''ll have enough to convince the BBC to run the show.

I'd be very grateful for any contributions
Many thanks
