    Did anyone watch that special today on VH-1 about 80's hard rock? They showed footage of Van Halen at the US Festival and it was crystal freakin' clear. Now how the hell does a guy get a hold of something like that? Ive had a hell of a time finding a good copy. Anyone know where to get perfect footage like this?

    Also, they played a clip of Van Halen playing And the Cradle Will Rock on some sort of TV show. Dave was wearing these crazy looking red and black pants. ANyone know what im talking about? What show was this filmed for? I would love to get footage of this stuff.

    The US Festival was filmed for an American cable company called (I think) Showtime. It most definitely exists in excellent visual form somewhere, though not in the bootleg world I don't think.

    And The Cradle Will Rock is from a German television taping I believe. I have it on video, and they also lip-synched to You Really Got Me on the same show.

    The "And The Cradle Will Rock" footage is from a European TV show. You can download the clip off of Morpheus usually.

    Showtime used to have an US Festival special they ran years ago that had all the bands. It would be great to release it as a 2 dvd set if they can't just release the VH one.

    There's also footage from one of those VH1 specials that shows VH throwing a huge cake in a guys face on the 1984 tour(I think it's that Lost Weekend footage). The clips are all shot from right there onstage, and it's in perfect condition.

    Goes to show that there must be a ton of professionally filmed material available from the DLR era. A live show from that era badly needs to be released.

    Sure would love to see the Us Festival on a crystal clear recording.

    I forgot about the footage of the 1984 show where they do the cake in the guys face. I'll bet MTV has this, they were the ones who played it and did the giveaway.

    Sometimes I'd really like to kick myself (hard) for not recording all that shit that was on MTV years ago like all the VH videos, interviews, all that shit.

    </font>[/QUOTE]MTV just recently showed the "Lost Weekend" footage, though I can't think of the name of the show, so it's in their archives somewhere. Are they owned by AOL Time Warner?

    You mean Curt Jeffries? I was wondering if people like that post here. Remember that troop of soldiers who fought in Desert Storm? They were invited backstage at some MTV thing (Spring Break?) They were all wearing red t shirts and one guy got on camera saying "I'm doing great I got all their signatures and Sammy's shirt." Where are these fans and do they ever post?

    Anyone ever see the introduction to Van Halen at the Us fest? It was a look at the party backstage and at one point the camera caught Dave pants down with a lady friend.
