    Default Van Halen “Unchained” 1982 Lip-Sync

    from vhnd
    Here’s a rare treat. A little-known clip of Van Halen lip-syncing “Unchained” for Spanish TV which aired in 1982.
    Keep in mind that seeing Van Halen on TV was something that almost never happened back then. And when you did actually get to see a great rock band on TV, it was often a lip-sync performance, which was standard practice, since the TV studios usually didn’t have the facilities to have a band perform live. Getting to see a wild and cutting edge rock band like this on your 13? color TV was really something!

    Always brings a smile to my face seeing old eighties' TV footage like that...Just one problem with this clip though - not enough close-ups of Ed. Tssk!

    It's official

    Dave did not even know the words then
    It is what it is

    Sometimes it seems like they say "How can we save some money" and they decide not take any drums to these shoots to save travel expense and when they get there they send alex out with $50 and he goes to Sears and buy two kits.

    There's another video of Dave with the guitar on one of these shows, right? (that has been around for a while).

    Thanks for that, Voivod!

    It always intrigues me that whilst the others were able to change their clothes, Ed would wear the exact same outfit ad infinitum, presumably until it literally fell apart - or could stand up and walk away on its own!

    I'm amazed at how many directors had no clue about what to do when the guitar player takes a solo. Is it really that complicated? I've lost count of the number of times I've seen a video like that which shows more shots of the lead singer during the solo. Sheesh....really? I would think it would be obvious....even if you are shooting an orchestra and the violinist takes a solo....focus on him/her!

    Poor Dave...must have been painful to actually try to sing the words. He's not made for lip-syncing.

    I don't think it's that they have no clue, it's more that they (probably correctly) assume that the vast majority of the audience would care more about watching the frontman pose/dance/whatever instead of focusing on the actual playing which most people couldn't care less about and can't even relate to. They could show Eddie just slowly strumming chords during a blazing solo and people wouldn't know the difference anyway. Any general music audience only cares about 2 things; watching the frontman, and being able to hum the chorus. Everything else is meaningless to them.
