    MTV stopped being cool in about '85...that's when popular music in general started to suck the most and it hasn't gotten better, with a few notable exceptions...

    Pissmonkey do you remember on Friday Night Video Fights with the huge main event when VH's Jump went up against Def Leppard's Photograph. Well, I called in several times but Van Halen still lossed. Oh well can't win em' all.


    ------------------
    Al and I are the real Van Halen. There could always be Van Halen as long as it's me and Al. But if there was no Dave, this place would be pretty empty tonight. - EVH during a 1984 pre-concert interview before that night's sold out show

    And there's only one David Lee. I'm the fun in Van Halen, always will be. - David Lee Roth

    When classic Van Halen is together it's like one person. When I say 'I' in this respect, I mean my whole cadre that I am part of. I'm the tear boss, and I'm a fuckin' lifer. - David Lee Roth

    "In America, we believe big time in publicizing the shit out of 'we ain't talkin'.' First we make goddamn sure that everybody knows we ain't saying anything..." - David Lee Roth

    hey photograph is a great song. i don't mind it losing to a song like that. i'd rage if it lost to a song like limb bizkit or something, though.

    I don't think it was Photograph that VH lost to on Friday Night Videos. That was released the year before. Vh lost to ZZtop's Sharp Dressed Man. I believe I have that on an old video tape around here somewhere. I used to tape those every Friday when I was in jr. high. Def Leppard's Foolin' also lost to ZZ. That was a cool video, hot rods and women, all a 13 year old boy needed.

    It started with "Remote Control" and slowly drifted away from music thereafter.

    I do wonder, though - HOW is it still on the air at all? Are there people who watch their programming?

    I'm not sure how radio can "Play more Roth".....?

    Wow!
    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    -Kahil Gibran

    Probably just means that Roth era songs get more "listeners" than Sammy stuff... Or, Roth era albums are selling more OR maybe they need a bump in sales. Could be a million things.
