    A question from a new member, maybe someone can help them out:

    Hello James,

    I joined this forum to get some information about a Van Halen album i want to buy. The album is called by the seller Valerie's Delight. it has a provocative cover and center picture. I have looked in eBay and on the internet but have not been able to find out any information about the album. I see that you are a system monitor person so i am assuming you are very knowledgeable on the topic of VH!!!!. Sorry i started with you but could not figure out how to get this question posted to the larger group. If all else fails - I might as well JUMP.......

    Any help/information is greatly appreciated.

    Jim

    Itís just a bootleg and hopefully he didnít buy it.

    Just another crappy low generation version of the US Festival, which can be found all over YouTube for free.

    I canít believe people are still getting suckered into buying this crap. You donít need to buy these things. Theyíre all available for free online. The days of needing to buy bootlegs are long over with. Plus for a show that has been around forever.

    This article is a few years old, but whatever. I remember this happening in the 90s when I was in high school. Grunge was becoming popular, and very few of these bands at the time wanted to admit that they were influenced by Van Halen. I can only think of Jerry Cantrell who often mentioned Eddie as an influence. Now, I guess its "cool" for a lot of 90s bands say VH was an influence.

    https://www.loudersound.com/features...it-was-awesome

    Here's the VH mention:

    Given your background and the musical climate in Seattle, did you have to consciously hold back your shredder tendencies?

    Mike McCready--The truth is it just felt like that stuff didn’t work. And honestly, we were so sarcastic and mocking of a lot of that stuff back then, for better or for worse. But I loved Randy Rhoads. I totally loved Eddie Van Halen. I saw Eddie four times with David Lee Roth back in the day. Stone did too, we went together. But it just didn’t seem like that stuff worked. And at that time, I had kind of gotten away from it anyway.

    So it wasn’t like you had some inner dialogue going where you had to tell yourself: “If I start tapping they’re gonna throw me out of Seattle.”

    Mike McCready--[Laughs] I didn’t think about it that way. But yeah, you’re probably right. It wouldn’t have been something that would have been accepted. Which is so pretentious when I think about it, this punk-rock ethic where we were not supposed to like certain things and whatever. That’s really stupid. But when you’re in your twenties you’re just trying to make it happen. It’s a weird thing to look back on.

    Default VAN HALEN WAS CONSIDERED FOR ROCK ĎNí ROLL HIGH SCHOOL

    Did anyone else know this? This would have been something else.


    Originally, Todd Rundgren was to star as the musical act, but both sides could not come to an agreement. Next, Cheap Trick was contacted, but a similar situation happened. After that, talks were conducted with Warner Bros. Records, where Allan Arkush had a connection, to decide on which band they should use in the film. The first suggestion was Devo, but Arkush decided that they had too much of their own concept. Another band considered for the movie was Van Halen, but Warner execs warned Arkush that they were raucous and would be difficult to handle. Finally, an exec name-dropped the Ramones, who recorded for Sire Records, a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Records. Arkush, being a huge fan of the band, agreed. To this day, Rundgren regrets passing up the role he was offered.

    Man, I don't think I'll ever get sick of listening to Ed's isolated guitar tracks.

    I have a playlist of them, and it's one of my favorite things to listen to.
