I was looking at buying this promo vinyl from South Africa (if I can afford it) but I don’t know know of anytime that Van Halen toured near Africa, let alone South Africa. The certificate that comes with the “Warner Brothers” pressed record says that David Lee Roth and Alex Van Halen will meet the winner “Henry” at the disco club Plumb Crazy on July 2..no year. Mayby 1979 or 1984. Van Halen was in the middle of touring, with July 2 off both years, four days off in 79 between Seattle and Jacksonville Fl and only one day between Illinois and Wisconsin in 1984. I would think if this happened it would be 1979 as its a disco club. Has any one heard of this or seen pictures from this event???

Sorry was not sure how to add as a link. I added a link but did not work as I thought.

Yeah I had found that blog…..but man if David Lee and Alex Van Halen was making a pit stop at a local disco, that would be big news, especially in South Africa during that time period…
Yeah I think its shenanigans too. I’m thinking celebrity look-a-like for some promotion for the club.

Maybe the records were made & the Dave & Al appearance was cancelled ?


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

Or maybe the recordings weren’t for a local contest at all – the station just used them as promotional material. The promo may have been from Virginia but the SA station just used them to use the van Halen name and generate buzz for their station. Kind of like a syndicated talk show except it’s just a syndicated promo.

Mikey,

If this turns out to be a unique VH interview especially done for the South African market, would you be willing to share a copy of it?

Thx …

Did you get it Mikey?
The seller said he had no idea what was on it as he hasn’t got a turntable!
