    Anyone know the story behind the VH Memorial Day poster?(The poster where they are raising the American flag).

    Been awhile since I've seen it, but wasn't that poster a Van Halenised take-off of the Iwo Jima photo/memorial?

    Yes that is the poster. The only time I ever saw the poster was in a music mag on one of those pages where they sell posters and shirts, etc. So I never got to see a good picture of it. Thanks for posting the pic Dan.

    Did anyone see that special on Iwo Jima that was on A & E last night? I thought it was very well done.

    And it got me wondering if VH took any heat for doing a take off of that famous photograph. Does anyone know if they did?

    I've never heard of Van Halen taking any heat for this poster Glenn. It was done in good taste, and back in 83 before everyone is SO PC sensitive. So I'd imagine that nothing was ever said. I love that poster. Out.

    I think the poster was released at the same time as the US Festival appearance, could be wrong.

    I have it right here. It folds into a magazine sized tour book/program type thing. Has a bunch of cool pics from the Diver Down tour and some face shots of they guys. I bought back in roughly 7th grade out of a Circus or Hit Parader. I've kept all my old shit, still collecting more.

    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen
