    My favorite part was WARF as Eddie walked to the stage right in front of him & for a moment they were fae to face. All WARF could say to Eddies face was....


    "This is fucking awesome!!!!!!!!!!!"


    Yes sir, it surely was.


    Makes me sad remembering when MTV was cool.

    It's hard to believe that MTV ever was cool but that is a fact.

    I remember sending in a huge stack of postcards (nearly 200 of them), writing until my hand ached, in hopes that this would be me.

    +1. Abso-fucking-lutely.

    That evening set in motion the standard for the pattern of drinking I have engaged in ever since.

    MTV was is it's best when the cable companies where just trying to find something to fill all those channels up. If you had a video MTV would probably put it on the air and new up coming bands and even some established ones made some videos. Once the big television people saw MTV was generating ratings they started to diddle with it until they turned it into one big reality soap opera and it became everything but music. Not only that, it became a political propaganda channel to influence the young and gullible. MTV went from stick it to the man to bend over.

    I remember. Remember I was in the on-deck circle in case one of you guys had to pull out. So awesome how Dave treated us here at the Army. But it was a little less climactic for us page refreshers since we had a bit of experience under our belts from Cafe Wha?. that night was just about the greatest thing ever.

    When WARF yelled out "She's The Woman" .0002 seconds into the song.......pure awesome!

    You guys think we will ever hear from or find the 4 kids who played the mini-band members in the HFT video? Mini Dave lol. Lucky little fuck. Playing mini Dave in 1984 in the HFT vid at age 14 or so....I bet he got laid like crazy in high school.

    It's a good thing I was sober that night I probably would have rushed the stage or started a "Roth Army" chant!

    The Wha? night was bad ass. Pages couldn't refresh fast enough. Tattoo blasting and staying up all night getting Chinese eyes. Great, great night. Such euphoria that VH was back and doing something for the fans. Damn... Let's do it again!

    I was looking for it - no luck.

    The best part is when Jeffries tries to run back to the front of the stage and the roadies pull him back. Man, that dude had more self restraint than I would have

    Van Halen ‘Lost Weekend’ Documentary Screening This Week

    A short documentary about a Van Halen fan who won the chance to party with the
    band for 48 hours will be screened this week.

    Titled Lost Weekend, the film tells the story of Kurt Jefferis, who won an MTV Lost
    Weekend contest in 1984. The 14-minute movie was made by Bradford Thomason
    and Brett Whitcomb, who previously made the documentaries GLOW: The Story of
    the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling and A Life in Waves.
