I was a member a few years back on the old site. I have been collecting bootleg videos since I got my first vcr in 1980.(it was a beta format!) So that should tell ya I’m probably one of the oldest guys in your forum. I browse alot of forums of my favorite groups but this forum seems to be the closest knit group of posters that really look to help each other out in their collecting efforts. For that I applaud all of you! I have no clue in how to download shows from torrent sites and really don’t care to do it. I am an old fashioned snail mail trader and I trade with collectors from all over the world. I also buy directly from a few filmers. I had to retire in 98 due to a massive heart attack at the ripe ole age of 47 so collecting and watching shows along with enjoying my 6 grand kids is now my way of life. I have over 2500 shows on dvd in my collection. Van Halen has always been one of my favorites NO MATTER IF ITS DAVE OR SAMMY IN THE BAND! I have 130 shows on dvd.
If you would like to see my list get in touch and send me yours I’m always in the mood for a trade. Also I would like to know who you guys recommend on this site to put a couple of shows I have the masters of onto dvd. I’m not computer savvy and I would like someone to put these two shows together the right way. I transferred them with a stand alone deck years ago for myself and a couple of guys who went to the shows with me. I have been sitting on them since the 2004 tour and after seeing how the members on this site are with each other I want to share them. Thanks for listening and letting me into the forum!

Welcome to the site. Even after being a member here for over a decade, the kindness of everyone (for the most part) still amazes me at times.

Question: Would those 2004 shows be the two Chicago shows by any chance? I know those were filmed, but could never seem to find that they were ever released into the general trading pool. Either way, looking forward to anything you would like to offer….and once again, welcome.

Welcome….I’m pretty old myself, but you’ve got a few more miles than I.

The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

Welcome aboard, you found a great group of people here for sure. Also, snail mail trading is always welcome.

Welcome. Offering to share unreleased VH shows is a great way to introduce yourself :)

Welcome, there are a few here that can “properly” put your shows to dvd for you. I’d be happy to further discuss with you about it anytime as I will have some time opening up after my next push of shows I’m doing.

Why settle for a can? When you can drink straight from the bottle….

Welcome, and thanks for offering up the 04 Chicago shows. I was at the first night with my then four year old son. I would love to see a copy once authored.

Wow! 47 and a heart attack, that’s not cool. I’m 44. Don’t worry about not doing torrents. If someone here needs a show, there are usually plenty of people willing to help! Welcome back!
