    Default Has anyone seen the poster in this photo before

    I know there are plenty of WACF posters out there, but I love the look of this one and I don't ever recall seeing it before:

    yeah.......i'm still here.

    Yes I have actually. I forgot where though. And I know it was a long time ago. I've got a real rare poster of Dave and Ed live (Ed playing a Paul) I don't if ANYONE has ever seen. I've never seen it before, and I've looked online. I should take a pic and post.

    How did you even notice the poster in that pic?

    Certainly was Val at her best back then.

    I used to have that poster. Don't know wtf happened to it. Pisses me off.

    Ed's playing the white Les Paul, and Dave's kinda lookin back at Ed smiling and almost looks like Dave's holding a joint.
    Great f'n poster.

    Take a pic and post. I wanna see it, and cry about somehow losing it.

    Aha! That red poster is an INCREDIBLY rare 1980 French promotional poster.

    I have one of them. It's mounted, but not framed. Tucked away. And I also have that poster where Ed is playing a Les Paul. I think that's from '78. I also have pretty much all of those early record awards shown there.

    This really is a cool picture. I just noticed 2 little details:

    1) Framed "US" magazine cover of Val. Cute.

    2) Framed High School photo of Ed! on the table.

    This must have been taken at Valerie's house, or Ed's parent's house?

    What do ya think the chances are that Ed and the boys still have stuff like that?

    Hehe yes, he's holding a mic, but in his other hand I'd swear it looked almost like he's pinching a joint.


    I've been searching, can't find the poster, but this looks like the guitar, and if memory serves then I think that's even the same shirts that Dave and Ed are wearing in the poster. For all I know this could be the same gig.



    Or maybe my memory is shot, but I'd swear those are the same shirts they're wearing in that old-school poster we're talking about.


    Cool. Can't wait to see your pic. Been sooo long since I saw it. Coolest VH poster ever.

    Here's the pic...sorry it sucks there's a dumb ceiling fan in our bedroom and I couldn't get it to show up without the flash. But in any event, you can tell what it is.

    And I see what you're saying about the joint thing Wruff...his OTHER hand. HAHA! I looked ain't nothing there.

    AHHH THAT IS SO COOL!

    That thing was stapled to my wall for so many years growing up.

    Maybe I gave it to my friend Mike when I left for the Army, or maybe my brother took it to college and lost it. I'm gonna ask Mike if he's still got it, he never throws anything away. That's the coolest VH poster ever, and very rare. You're the only other person I've seen who had/has it.


    Does look like the same gig as that pic I posted above too.

    I found it in some Hollywood movie store on Hollywood Blvd. when I was in college, so probably 90 or 91. They had one left, I think I paid $2 for it. The bottom corner got torn off in college when I moved. I had it fixed a few years later and framed it. My wife has allowed it to be in our bedroom for years.

    Could be, but they probably wore those outfits a lot on that tour.

    The poster has a 1979 copyright on it, so it was obviously from the '78 tour. Which you can tell by the clothes anyway.

    Is Zlozower's name on the poster anywhere (look on the fine print at the bottom possibly)? That pic I posted is taken by Neil Zlozower, so if the poster is his photo too then I'd bet they're the same show.
    If so then the poster looks a few songs later in the show than the pic I posted 'cause Dave's hair is sweaty in the poster but poofy in the other pic.
