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”.

This one looks just before Dave left VH sometime in 84?

I think this might be from the premiere of Pee Wee’s Big Adventure movie, in 1985.

Is there any audio or video of this EVH with Billy Idol?

Eddie Van Halen and Paul Stanley of Kiss

I’m perpetually amazed that Paul Stanley is straight. Doesn’t even seem possible when I see videos or photos of him.

Always loved this photo from the Video Hits Volume 1 back cover.
Anyone know of a bigger version of it and also who is it in the back ground door way at 5150? I remember reading it but have forgotten..A producer?

Correct Ron just checked the VH Encyclopedia.The albums art director Sttien Schyberg is standing near Al’s drum room in the photo.
Another intresting bit is “The band presented aproximately 20 songs to Dave to write lyrics to,of which two were chosen.”
Wonder if any of those songs made it to VH3 or ADKOT…?

Hi Jason, According to Wikipedia the Pee-Wee movie premiered on August 9, 1985, so I don’t think the photo could be from then.

Maybe the MTV video music awards?

This is a scan of the colour proof I got from the printer here in the UK. It’s got a screen dot in it so it doesn’t res up too far, it’s also had a lot of contrasting added in photoshop my guess is the original is much clearer tonally.

Hard to say, but it defintely doesn’t look like on of the VMAs from that time. Here’s a pic with Pee Wee, says July 1985:

EDIT: found it. It’s from JUNE 01: 6/15/89-6/18/86 CBS party at Bistro Gardens Toxic Waste party at Hard Rock Cafe Eurythmics party at Roxy NBC party at Cent. Dates are wrong, but appears to be the same event listed as 1985.

Totally agree. Rolling Stone printed a candid picture of Paul at the grocery store a few years back and he looked just like one of those Mob Wives, or whatever that TV show is called. I’ll try and find the picture – it’s hilarious.
