    Default Full story on destroyed 7th floor of the Sheraton Inn

    Hey everyone,

    40 years ago this week, Van Halen destroyed the 7th floor of the Madison's Sheraton Inn during the first week of their '78 world tour. (This is the hotel that that the band thanked inside the liner notes of the VH2 album).

    Susan Masino was the 22-year-old Midwestern journalist who had the unique opportunity to attend the third and fourth shows of Van Halenís first world tour, and hang out and party with Van Halen during their infamous three-night stay at the Sheraton Inn.

    In her own words, Susan gives the VHND the complete story of the fun and chaos that defined life on the road with the fledging rock band. This is a truly special article ó a rare glimpse of what it was like during the first week of Van Halenís inaugural world tour. It's one of my favorite articles on VHND. Hope you check it out... I think you'll love it. All photos are from that week. Enjoy!

    Would love to see present day VH replicate their visit to that hotel!

    Crazy these days for them would be eating something spicy past 7 pm, skipping the post show massage, and staying up past midight to watch a movie on tv.
