    Here's a recently uploaded radio interview from Portland Oregan April 3 1980.

    Edward & Alex are speaking Dutch. Their native tounge from their home country Holland.

    VH 1980 at the Nassau Coliseum !! A whole bunch of us went to the show. We weren't old enough to drive yet so my friends dad dropped us off. One of my friends snuck a flask of Jack Daniels under his jacket. That coupled with a big bag of weed and what a night it was. The thing I remember most about that show was Loss of Control. VH had the smoke machine pumping during LOC and Eddie would duck under the smoke and pop up on different parts of the stage !! I also remember the opening band.... The Cats !!! Truly incredible memories.

    I was 19 and it was great! I got to see them in Hampton,VA in the summer (I was home from college working to make some money) and then caught them again in the fall in Knoxville, TN. Good times!

    Such a mysterious tour...only 2 video bootlegs and both are short (shit, one is only one song!). The only other thing we get are those Euro promo vids.

    Their outfits, the stage, Mike playing a keyboard designed like a bomb, Eddie starting to jump on stage....their playing(!)--such a cool tour. Please God let some pro-shot show up.

    Sept. 4, 1980. Reunion Arena, Dallas. I do remember prior to Jamie's Crying, Dave said, I wrote the song and I don't even know WTF it's about.
