    I have been reading that Sammy and Dave referred to Ed and Al as the "Howdy Doody Brothers" during their Press Conference, but all I have read is them (Mainly Dave) saying "Howdy Doody Mountain", which I am assuming is referring to Ed's 5150 Studio, which in fact is up on a Mountain off Cold Water Canyon in Los Angeles.

    I think they were referring the The Howdy Doody TV Show as a whole(from the 1950's)as symbolic of what it's been like at the 5150 Studios.

    I don't believe Dave and Sammy would call Ed and AL Howdy Doody Brothers anyway. Any thoughts?

    The "Howdy Doody" mountain references were something Dave first used in 1996-97 after the reunion debacle. I had interpreted it at the time to being a reference to them being puppets of Danniels.

    ...It's the BAND and Dave is really the cat that can front VH. He sang his ASS off and was really cool. No cheese here guys, this is filet Mignon! - Steve Lukather's comment after witnessing a Van HALEN 2007 rehearsal
