    Default 1980s VH Fan Club - Hausman, check this out!

    I was just going through some old stuff from my college days and I found a newsletter from the VH Fan Club from March 1984. What a walk down memory lane - it talks about the US Festival, Ed playing on "Beat It," Dave and his Amazon trek, Al's arrests (which I had forgotten about), and Mike racing in a power boat race in Martinique.

    The best part is the merchandise order form. The VH necklaces were $12 for the silver and $25 for the gold. Hey Hausman, how about a throwback sale on those? jk

    The 1982 tour jacket (which I still have) is $59 though - I remember just about going broke buying that thing.

    And of course you can buy all of VH's albums and cassettes. Too funny.

    Anyhoo, it was a cool find and I immediately thought of the Links and VanHalenStore.com when I saw it!

    I don't know about multiple arrests, but I remember one story where a hotel manager pressed charges for vandalism. The way I understand it the road manager had to make restitution. Weren't there notes about this in the recent book?

    Actually Van Halen thanked the Wisconsin area hotel on the back album cover of VH2.

    I did a bunch of digging online and couldn't find any more info about the arrests. Probably because it happened long before the internet. So honestly, I don't remember and can't seem to find anywhere what it was all about!

    Yeah,the Sheraton Hotel,which is right across from the Dane County Coliseum. Haven't been able to come to Madison since...........which pisses me off since it guarantees a drive to Milwaukee or Chicago whenever they tour. Ok,so they don't tour often,but that's not the point.
    Good thing to know:
    Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    And we all probably thought this was the coolest thing in the world.

    Publicists know exactly how to press all the right buttons.
