    When: April 17, 1984
    Where: Toronto, Canada
    Place: Maple Leaf Gardens

    I will never forget the experience, I was only 17! A friend of mine worked for the cleaning company that was contracted for Maple Leaf Gardens during concert season and for the Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Team.

    The staff was giving backstage passes during the sound check and My friend who was in charge of " Checkmate " cleaning for the Gardens was given
    4 after show passes!

    All I can say was, it felt like " New Years " backstage with all the drinks and food you could feed the National Guard with! The woman were obviously hand picked to be backstage and looked like run-way models!

    Dave,Eddie,Alex,Mike all conversed, drank, ate, with the guests, but mainly Dave hung around to
    toast more drinks then your average host! It truly was what everything has been written about a backstage party at a Van Halen concert, and more! Van Halen without doubt deserved the title
    of " Party Band " ! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    There were no cameras allowed backstage with the exception of media but a PARTY regardless!
    An experience I will treasure for the rest of my life! I did manage to get a drum stick a guitar pick from Eddie and Mike and a bandanna, of all things, from Dave!

    Will the Party continue in 2002 ? [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

    Someone should write a book about back stage parties following Van Halen concerts. That would be a book I would purchase!
