    Default The Origin Of Those Insipid "Cup" Jokes - The Brothers on MTV 1996

    Be aware that this is quite uncomfortable to watch. The bitterness and rancor held by the Van Halens is remarkably self-evident. Taken in tandem with the excerpts from Sam Hagar's Unpublished Bio ( http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/sam-...4.html?t=44704 ), you'll gain a fairly representative grasp of how hostile things were in VH Land in 1996, as well as a somewhat ominous forecast of where it would all lead a few years down the road.

    Ed & Al Van Halen, Post - Award Show Appearance, MTV 1996 (3:43)
    "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man."
    George Bernard Shaw

    *Whew* - it's been awhile since I've watched that. It's amazing how happy the VH's were in, say, 1993... and then three years later, it spiraled out of control and the band never recovered.

    No wonder these guys dont do many interviews. They come off as such whiney little bitches. They should be embarrassed of themselves. I dont think Dave or Hagar was as much a problem as these guys led people to believe. Look at poor Michael Anthony, he was next. The bros. have just fucked everything up royally.

    I've got a whole recording rig hooked up to my computer, so powering up my speakers (which are actually studio monitors) is not something I usually do unless I'm working on audio in some form. I usually surf the web without sound. That being said, I couldn't bring myself to turn them on to watch this YouTube clip; I can't handle watching that anger-driven tripe right now. Bad memories...

    "if and when we ever do a tour with roth, in the future, we'll have to write and record a new album first."
    Right.

    Has Dave ever given his side of the hip thing?

    Well said.

    Just a few weeks ago someone posted an interview with Sam and Ed being interviewed by Bob Costas (early 90's) and things were great. Then the self imposed destruction began. Oh what could of been.

    I don't buy for ONE SECOND...that Ed and Al said to Dave before the MTV thing that he WAS NOT back in the band. Either way I don't know why Dave would think that he was BACK in the band. But I don't believe that Ed and Al said anything to that effect to him before.

    I don't buy that.

    Whether or not they told him I agree but I do buy what they accused Dave of saying. Seems like thats something he would say.

    Indeed, he has. The entire twisted episode, from getting together with the Van Halens to record the tracks for the best of album (a curious insight into what constituted the VH brain trust at the time) to the night of the MTV fiasco, as well as it's aftermath. It's all here, yet is only part of a truly engaging story...

    Oh I believe that as well. Ed seemed pretty upset in that interview...you can't fake that.

    it was all RAY DANIELS fault, he had to much influence on the brothers,
    we all know that.
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.
