    This is inspired by a post I saw that was some of the dumbest VH related shit I've read on the internet.

    I want to express my appreciation for this place. A few days ago in some closed thread a few users where going at it. Being sick of all the arguments on here lately, I said one might be better off on Facebook then here. I take it all back.

    Yes, there's a wild cast of characters here, sometimes shit gets outta hand, people have a go at each other...but this is still the best place to talk VH on the net. I'm glad to have been a part of it for over 15 years.

    And hopefully we have a f'kn tour this year, cause that's when this place lights up and really shines.

    Within the past week or so there was a youtube video posted of a possibly restored '78 VH show. I believe it had still shots in some places where the video was damaged. I meant to watch it but never got back to it, and now I am unable to locate it. I tried searching via Google "site:" and also within vhlinks. Pretty sure it was somewhere in main- can anyone point me in the right direction? I found a '78 Fresno show on youtube but it didn't seem like the one posted here. Thanks...

    Thanks much! I knew there was a unique word/spelling in the thread title, but I did not think to search for "Ya". After giving up on the search I tried to find it the hard way and ended up rehashing dozens of pages of people slagging on one another- had to stop.

    While I was searching youtube I found their 1978 Tower Theater Philly show, which I had not heard before. It's audio-only, and whoever recorded it must have been in front of Ed's cabs. I was not even aware of this Tower Theater show, and I believe I only saw one show there for the Joe Perry Project around '81, if anyone remembers that period when Aerosmith took a break. The odd thing is that they list August 1978 for the date and that was VH opening for Sabbath at the Spectrum (the one I saw). Someone in the comments mentions it's the Tower Theater show, which was in March 1978. It's a great recording regardless:

    I just recently noticed this... the guitar riff from the Seventh Seal was used years before on Inside! Listen from 0:20 to 0:40:

    Oh, like they didn't copy off the VH3 stage for their '05-'06 tour...or The Best of Both Worlds/DLR Band packaging with Red, White & Crue...or Van Halen in general in the 1980s...or Kiss in general:

    Nich catch.
    I can hear a faint similarity in those chord stabs and intervals that Eddie plays.

    I saw the Plimsouls at the Whiskey a Go Go way back in either 1981 or 1982. Somebody had written the following in giant black ink on the ceiling in part of the venue:

    To Motley Crue: You are a bunch of pussy faggots and will never be another New York Dolls.

    I actually love The Crue, but still had to point that out. They've often followed VH's coattails, which is fine, but don't be calling out others for that shit. Especially your seniors who inspired you.

    Which reminds me of a great Dave quote:

    Interviewer: So what's the biggest misconception about you?
