    Default MA Interview and Pro-Shot Reference

    Not sure if this was already brought up, but I figured I would throw it out there. In the recent Michael Anthony interview (super class act, by the way), Mike makes the statement that he doesn't believe there is any full length show out there with Dave before they broke up. What about the last show of the 1984 tour in Montreal? Doesn't that count?

    The Montreal show wasn't pro-shot. It was one camera from the center of the arena. Great show, though. Unchained still gives me chills on YouTube.

    I'm sure there must be another pair of words to describe Mike other than "class act". Surely.

    Lol....I was about to post the same exact thing. I don't know why everyone feels the need to throw in the 'class act' disclaimer every time Mike's name is mentioned. It's almost like "class act" and "Mike" must go hand in hand the way "shocked" and "chagrined" does.

    Well, we all know the complete US Festival show exists. I just wish they would release an official mint quality DVD of this like Triumph did.

    Who friggin' knows what decent live footage of the band exists from the 70s on...

    I just sincerely hope VH and their management do indeed someday see the value in embracing their legacy and assembling one all-encompassing package or several smaller packages of unreleased live and studio material from ALL the eras of VH (not just the one in favor at the time). The "Van Halen is about moving forward" excuse no longer applies. Give the fans what they want; be proud and own your legacy.

    But, as I always say with regard to VH... Expect nothing, and should something actually happen you can then be surprised.

    I really think there's enough evidence to point to the existence of old (70's and 80's) live video material. I think Mikey's reference only means that he doesn't know if the Oakland '81 show exists or not. Many here that were at the show insist it was all filmed. The odds make it an almost certainty that a complete show was pro filmed between '78 and '84. As to whether or not any of that will see the light of day is anyone's guess.

    Lots of major bands have made official releases of old video from their past, but even more haven't. I think it's usually for a paycheck. That doesn't seem to be a motivating factor for VH, so the "expect nothing and be pleasantly surprised if you do get something" philosophy definitely applies.
    DEAD OR ALIVE!!!
