    Default U.S. Senate watches VH Video @ Censorship Hearing 1985

    Van Halen Rising

    I think the clock is slloooow! This is the funniest video you'll see today. An uptight US Senate watches Van Halen's 'Hot For Teacher' during the PMRC Hearings, 1985.

    I like how some in the chamber were clapping at the end of the video!
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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

    Two complaints:

    They cut it off in the middle of Eddie's solo? Did they hire the same guy who cuts away from Eddie to show Dave dancing around in most of the live videos?

    The most interesting part to me was coming up and they ended it. I was all set to laugh at the comments about the video from the politicians!

    That pisses me off to no end - the guitar solo/camera panning away stuff .
    The same cameraman surely filmed Eddie/Vai/Jake E. Lee/Sambora etc. back in the day

    Still can't believe the Toad from A Christmas Story played Mike.

    How did I miss that?

    Amazing to think today nobody would bat an eye to that video

    Frank Zappa is missed...

    Here is the entire crossfire segment...Possibly the greatest 21 minutes in TV history.

    Never saw that video of Crossfire before but its classic. I think all those guys are all dead now. This is what makes the USA number one. Wonder what Lofton would think of internet porn on demand? He probably would be jerking off like everyone else.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Zappa has been dead 20 years. Lofton is still with us. Life is so unfair.
