    I know Ed commented on making videos for their two songs w. Dave in '96. Because of the tension at the MTV award show, the idea was dropped. Anyone hear about what these videos would have looked like, concept, etc...?

    Dave commented in his book that the treatment that was sent to him for the Me Wise Magic video had Dave in the background while the band played in the foreground. Dave felt it was Alex's way of insulting him.

    I think the video would have looked awesome if it inserted clips of old "Harry Houdini" films... Maybe have Dave and the boys dress up in black tuxedos and have dave standing in the front with 3 midgets...

    Pulling Rabbits out of a hat...

    Then during Ed's solo towards the end of the song... show clips of the original Van Halen live... maybe stuff from oakland 1981...

    Then when Dave starts singing again at the end... have the band come out live on stage... like the aerosmith video "dude looks like a lady".

    Anyone like the idea?

    With Dave at the creative controls, a video for either song would've ranked up there with "Hot For Teacher" "Jump" or "Panama". Unfortunately, since Dave's departure the band has lost much of the humor that had been a part of their earlier stuff.
