    Default The set of Van Halens Pretty Woman video ..new story.

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion...6fB6BqZQCFhN/0

    I Want My MTV

    The Uncensored Story of

    the Music Video Revolution

    by Craig Marks and Rob Tannenbaum Dutton

    Director Pete Angelus was looking for his midgets.


    The set of Van Halens Pretty Woman video was a bacchanal filled with Jack Daniels, cocaine, midgets, transvestites, hunchbacks and hot video vixens in bikinis.

    But at one point, the midgets went missing.

    After 20 minutes of searching, Angelus found them when he opened the door to a transvestites dressing room.

    One little guy was wearing a black cape, said Angelus. He was holding the transvestites [private area] and pretending it was a microphone. He was singing Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones while doing a Mick Jagger impression. I thought, this is not going well.

    I know it is silly, but that is the crap that makes (made) this band fun.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    No question that when Pete Angelus was onboard, VH's visuals were top notch. The band (particularly Ed) never gave him credit, saying he was a Roth man. VH's album cover art went from bad to worse after 1986.

    That's assuming it even happened at all. The best rock stories are always the ones with absolutely no evidence to back them up.

    That's because if there was any evidence, people would be in prison.

    Prodigious amounts of cocaine and midgets blowing transvestites might not be looked upon kindly by local law enforcement.

    Lol. Classic stuff. Whether any of that stuff ever happened (along with a bunch of the other crazy stories) is probably open to debate. However, I'm pretty sure stuff just as wild happened and has never been discussed with the public. That was Van Halen. Van Halen wasn't excess drugs and hairspray like the pussies that followed them, it was just the right amount of drugs and excess fun.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I wouldn't even say it is the worst Van Halen video.

    Two bad videos. One bad song.

    On the other hand, I am SOOOOOOOOO thankful for the "Pretty Woman" video because if it weren't for the video -- we would've never had "Intruder" -- one of the single greatest tracks in the history of classic VH (with Dave on synthesizers).

    My least favorite is Feels So Good.

    The pictures of them floating and bee bopping around always bugged me. The fact I never really liked the song never really helped it either.
