    Default Old Van Halen website goodies

    I've recently used the Internet Archive Way Back Machine to access the long gone versions of the VH website and found some awesome stuff. With the demise of adobe flash, much of it doesn't work as it should, but it is navigable. One of the cool things I found was two versions of the video to "Once" both with 1998 very low grade video and a watermark owned by David Bertinelli. It would be amazing to see the original higher grade videos. Also is a section called "The Unlist" that contained lists of things like album leftovers, unreleased live covers and demos, and alternate takes. I remember seeing this 20+ years ago and still the alternate takes just says "under construction". At one point I found many of the song titles and brief descriptions of the songs to the Cherone follow up album. If anyone has suggestions of getting this site to work better let me know. I did not try downloading and installing 25 year old versions of flash so that may be a solution. Here's the link to the Once videos https://web.archive.org/web/20010210...ideo/once.html

    The official V-H website was virtual treasure-trove of history and interesting band materials from 1998 - 2002.

    As far as band websites during that time period it was one of the best and most comprehensive. It's a shame none of that is easily available today. I'm sure all data and artifacts are stored away somewhere in backups in bobo's basement... but probably no way to get any of it resurrected.

    You were able to make cd's of those songs? Is there anything you have that's not available on youtube you'd be willing to share? Did you get any alternate takes or album leftovers, that's like the holy grail! I've heard just about every demo and live cover imaginable but the only alternate takes I have are runnin with the devil and dance the night away.

    I don't think the Un List had anything that special by today's bootleg standards. Meaning, they're all on YT.

    And this is the CD set he's referring to if you've haven't seen it: http://www.vhboots.com/unreleased.html

    Little off track, but man, that guy Cato at the DLR Army had a shitload of shit on there, stuff I'd never heard of before in the early 2000's.

    Those Once videos have been on YouTube for years. Albeit in the shitty quality that they were uploaded in originally.

    The only one I've found on youtube for years now is the shorter edit, and it's actually in a little worse quality than those in the link. Maybe the others were pulled down over the years? I had never seen the longer full length video before.

    Yeah I would have to dig them up but I do not recall anything different than what we have available now....back then it was super cool but now all of it has been out for awhile.
