No Al.
Did’nt Al throw enough TV out windows?
Going by Sammy’s book and interviews he thought Al was a crazy man back when he joined VH.
Sam said in his book when he joined VH Al & Ed were drinking all day at 5150 and Al’s trick was to hold his hands together and try and jump though his hands..He kept landing face first on the concert ,blood on his face.
I’m sure they all go upto some bad arse shit we will never hear about.


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”.

I don’t think I’ve ever heard one truly crazy Al story. Those other guys make him look like a banker or librarian or something.

Wasn’t there a story in the Van Halen Unleashed MTV show where Al describes himself setting a pile of tires on fire.

Al used to party with Dave back in the day. Ed and Mike were married, so they didn’t party as much (sic). But I remember reading interviews stating that Al was crazy (in a good way). I wish Neil Zlozower would write a book about those days. He has mentioned many times that Van Halen were the wildest bands of all of them back in the day…

I asked Al about this in 2008 and he looked around and said let’s not talk about that. Never got to hear any more about it.
