    Default Van Halen in the Tunnel of Time

    Have you ever heard about a website called Web Archive? It's possible to use it to visit any homepage as if you were "traveling back in time" (up to 1996), this is, access any homepage as it was in the past, like a wayback machine.
    Maybe some of you already knew about this, but I find it pretty cool to share it here so everybody can see. You can waste your whole day navigating into the past, it's addicting
    And since most of us, Van Halen fans, love to talk about the past...

    Probably everybody remembers how great Van Halen's website was some years ago... so I will start with these two links:

    (when you click, it looks like it's not working, but just wait until it loads)

    http://web.archive.org/web/199904232....com/main.html
    1998 - There were so many details about the band on the website!!! Photos, news and information. Something unimaginable today There is even some live audio and videos of Eddie showing how to play some licks, and they still work, holy shit!!!

    http://web.archive.org/web/200012041...te/index2.html
    2000 - This one is nostalgic. The band was already without a vocalist, but the website kept being updated to keep the fans on track. Ohhh the irony!

    http://www.archive.org/web/web.php
    And have fun traveling back in time on any website!!!

    Fun to see the old pages. I remember the "did you know" from the 2000 VH page like it was yesterday. Seems like there were only about 5 factoids that never changed.

    I would visit the Links to get updates on new music back in '01... Would it be Dave or Sam? The sad part is that we are STILL waiting for the next album.

    Oh man!! It's like something etched in my memory. Visiting that fucking page 10 times a day. Oh look, they're planning an online tour of the 5150 Studio. "Stay tuned for the Full Mugambi coming soon" it says.
    Anyone email Starks lately?

    Got bored waiting so I clicked on the "Impatient?" link and then it just brought up a bit of crappy text with lots of red crosses for pics.

    Can you see all of the insanity written in the Pleasure Dome?

    Who was that guy that always wrote "si senor" to almost every post?

    It only took about a minute for me to download but it appears only the home pages are archived. I am unable to pull up anything other beyond the home.

    I was finally able to get into the Dome, after installing Java plug ins, but then none of the threads I tried to enter were archived.

    Waste of time. Is this what the future holds for us after they shut down all the news papers and level the libraries?

    That's the website I remember.


    Your post reminded me that I actually used to check VH's home page nearly every day. If I only knew what a waste of time that was going to be!

    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.
