    Default MTV 1996 Music Awards train wreck

    On YouTube there is an interview (below) with Alex and Eddie where they both try to clarify what happened and a reference is made to a press conference backstage where Ed referred to Dave not answering any questions and he stepped in. They briefly show it on the interview but I cannot find it anywhere.

    Does someone have the press conference or provide me where I can locate it?

    It's not that I don't believe they didn't have "baby steps" conversations with Dave, it's that they, WALKED OUT ON STAGE WITH THE ORIGINAL LEAD SINGER AFTER A DECADE!!

    What did they think people were going to think??

    That's where they fucked up.

    I thought the whole thing was bizzare..even that long ago I seem to recall thinking it would not work out.

    While their body language is telling now(to me)...I don't believe I noticed it when I watched it right after it happened. I saw Dave back after a decade.

    Btw, that videos is like 8mm 70's porn grainy.

    Just thought I'd add that.

    I had people calling me next day saying Roths back etc 98rock in Baltimore was saying that too. MWM was good. Then we got Gary and empty arenas. :
    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.

    It was like having a really good dream about Rachel McAdams and waking up next to Rachel Maddow.
