    What a great clip. It's not too often that I see something from VH past that's new to me. That should be an official video for Mean Street.

    I never understood the rationale why it's OK to do foreign TV, for a big band like VH, but not in America. It's so annoying, especially being a fan of this band, that we have nothing like that until years later when they did the Jon Stewart/Letterman shows. Both with Sam of course. It still baffles the mind that we don't have ANY proper mind boggling footage of CVH. Entires tours that were never properly recorded, that we know of. 1980 doesn't even seem to exist in the history of VH except in the memories of the people who attended the shows.

    Take a look at 3.36 onwards - I've seen this clip countless times but never noticed that Ed's playing Mike's bass for him before now...An ironic foreshadowing of the future, perhaps!?

    Nevertheless, it's great to see this in all its original technicolour glory...Now we can REALLY appreciate the outfits!

    That part in bold, right there! Why EVH doesn't see the value in releasing any of that old classic footage is beyond me. Fans would eat that stuff up. He keeps denying us that privilege though. A proper boxset would go far. All of VH's peers have surpassed them in this area too. Every single one of them. Supposedly, former manager Noel Monk (who is now deceased) had the Holy Grail footage from Oakland taken in 1981. No one seems to know where it went though. The VH camp keeps denying that it ever existed, but many who were there saw a recording crew rolling tape for those three nights. Pete Angelus, their former lighting manager, is also rumored to have some footage. Mike too I believe. It's just a damn shame we have nothing. That they don't deem it important enough to give it to us, their fans.

    I'll never understand why bands lip sync on live TV either. What was the point of that? Why even bother showing up?

    Hilarious. It's so "off" that you'd swear it was a spoof on 80's videos.

    Just a whole lot easier for the producers of the time to manage sound quality and the like - as well as ensure that those naughty rockers didn't alter the lyrics in a way that might offend the delicate sensibilities of young, innocent viewers!

    It's classic Dave. He even forgets the fucking words that he's not even attempting to lip-sync to.

    I didn't remember that part either - funny stuff. Ed's face when saying "Mean Street" in Mike's ear is hilarious. Dave looks way cool, but totally fucks up the synch, not that any of them cared, lol.
