    Very interesting video. This sheds light in why the no brown M&Ms clause was in the tour rider, especially when damage to facilities was involved ($470K to arena in New Mexico).

    Sorry Dave, not sure I buy this entirely...if every one knew about the brown M&M thing ( and it was famous back in the day) there would be no security in having that as your sign that the promoter had not read the contract thoroughy

    there would have to be a different "cue" in different contracts to assure that

    The safety side of the reason for the Brown MnMs has become more prevalent in the last couple years. The CBC (Canada's equivalent of the BBC), and considered the "educated" person's choice for radio, ran a story on this last year. The announcer simply said "Genius and Brilliant" when they explained Dave's reason for placing that clause in the contract.

    Anyway, great to hear it told from the originator's perspective.

    Man, we're getting so much! It's like they're trying to make up for the last fifteen years.

    Default Brown M&Ms in another video...

    In light of this, pay especially close attention to 3:17 - 3:28 of this video...

    They didn't have the internet and texting and Facebook, and all that, back then to share the message. And what promoter cared about the promoter in the next town, anyway?

    But maybe Dave told that story with a wink, that we didn't see behind his glasses...

    totally agree with this, he had to get his point across as far as people checking and making sure everything is safe
    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

    That was pretty cool!
