    Screw the box set. Who wants to pay $65 for an expanded BOV? Unless there's a generous supply of early demos and live stuff, I aint gonna bite.

    However, I'd sell my shins to get hold of a DVD of the unreleased film from the Fair Warning Tour.

    Does anyone know who owns the rights to that documentary? Better yet, does anyone know who I can kill to get my hands on it?

    Ever seen the live videos for Unchained or So This is Love? Apparently those videos were taken from live footage that was shot during the Fair Warning tour and was originally planned to be released as a tour documentary film.

    The documentary footage exists somewhere - presumably under the control of EVH or WB. Hardcore fans have long demanded the release of the footage. Why it has never been released is a mystery to me but a DVD would be much appreciated.

    Well when I saw VH back in '80 they brought a camera crew out on stage and said that they were filming. How do I remember this you ask...the question is how could I ever foreget it!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    The Oakland shows are supposed to be the only FAIR WARNING shows that were filmed. I'd love to see 'em released. The WACF tour, however, was probably filmed in more detail. Backstage footage, road footage and concert footage was apparently filmed. Now, whether or not concert footage was filmed with the same detail as the Oakland shows, we may never know.

    I say put out Oakland '81 first. Make it a full-concert DVD with picture remastered straight from the negatives, sound remixed in DTS and 5.1 Dolby Digital for us surround sound nuts, and bonus features of any extra 1981 footage out there.

    Yeah...like this'll happen. Well, I hope so.

    If any of you have this footage or saw them back then, I wonder if anyone else noticed something. Back then Edward used to improvise almost all the solos. I loved that! If you saw them more than one night it didn't get stale. (O.K. Roth's "I'll screw your girlfriend" and "I forgot the lyrics" schtick got a little old.) I saw them on the FUCK tour and I've seen the concert vids and Eddie started playing the solos note 4 note, I guess when Sammy joined.

    Kick ass. I knew their was plenty of footage, but I didn't know it was actually geared towards a "tour documentary" of some sort. That tour kicked much ass. I'd kill to see that.

    And speakin of Fair Warning and that tour, to this day, the coolest clothes musican's have ever worn on stage. Eddie and the white nickers with the candycane socks, Mike in a military flight suit and Dave in some indian/football pants, or whatever the fuck it was.....TO COOL!!!

    The candycane socks were da shit, wonder who told Ed to wear those with nickers? [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    Man, Van Halen has always been tough, but that era durning Fair Warning was the baddest of them all...........**Ahh, the memories** [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
