Finally unleashed by Van Halen Italia! The infamous club show in Italy where Dave jumps and breaks his nose (seen a few days later at Pinkpop with taped nose). This was for Italian TV.

And they play FOOLS!!!!!!!!!
And Eddie is playing the Dragon/Snake guitar!!!!!
And (in true VH fashion) bad lip syncing

I’ve read they also played “You Really Got Me” and that’s when DLR hits the mirrorball.

what a shame they just show Roth dancing around like an idiot and don’t even get Ed when he is soloing…..

No one cares about seeing Roth we WANT TO SEE EDDIE and the Dragon Snake guitar….

cool video but what a shame so little footage of Ed and so much of guy who looks like “the royal fool at the circus at the Kings castle.”

vhrob: the royal fool at the circus at the Kings castle

Italian video editors are clueless I guess. Show the guitar player during the guitar solo should be taught first day in Videography 101

Yeah it’s a shame there’s not more focus on Ed but it’s cool seeing something unseen before.
Looking forward to more VH – EVH gems.

EDDIE’S fingers aren’t fingers they are muscle-powered pistons that hammer guitar strings to the fretboard with the force of a rivet gun”.
