    Default Montreal 1984

    Watching the 1984 tour video from Montreal…and noticed something. At 1:19:40 (Pretty Woman) Edward gives a look offstage and then at 1:20:00 he leans over a speaker cab, to what appears, snort a line of “something”. The 80’s must have ruled!

    He could have been adjusting a knob on a piece of equipment...or he was doing very well what you said! Yeah good catch. Seen that video how many times but never noticed.

    Shamus, nice catch! I wouldn't doubt EVH was enjoying some of Colombia's finest and who could blame him?! But Montreal 1984 can't be mentioned without his famous guitar contraption. I only wish he could have been properly filmed using it!

    I'm sure it is, probably that Largo show in '84 that WB has and who knows who else.

    Looks like he is taking a swig of his drink to me... That's way to quick to be having a toot.
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Yeah, I just checked it out and slowed the video down to .25 speed and that's what it appears to be. He's taking a swig from a cup, not snorting a line.

    Not a huge fan of the Montreal 84 bootleg. I wonder if it's because of the show itself, or the fact that it's not professionally shot. I remember thinking, in the 80s, that Live Without A Net was ten times better. Not a fair comparison, I know.

    I wonder when bootlegs first started surfacing. I heard about them and started collecting in '93, but you said the '80s. Were they a big thing in the second half of the '80s? It makes sense that they would.

    Maybe for some bands with lots of official releases, bootlegs are less of a thing. Rush, for example, has quite a few well-filmed concerts out there. VH has precious little to show for, so bootlegs are crucial.

    i remember in the late 80s I would go with my dad to this annual record convention. I would always save my allowances for bootleg VH albums.
    I think it was the early 90s there was a booth with a guy selling VHS bootlegs and there was these VH shows. They were super expensive at the time, like $100+

    Montreal 84 was one of the easiest CVH video bootleg to find. Unfortunately, it didn't show the band in the best light, IMO. But I guess none of them wanted an official CVH video release. Even when Dave and the brothers were at odds, I never saw Dave say "I demand a live video of us be released." Seems he didn't care either. And we all know their "manager" Noel Monk was all about the merchandise and had zero vision about documenting the band live. Major lost opportunity for their legacy.
