voodoo: I totally agree. He made his objectives obvious with his comment, “somebody had to come along and say something stupid like this..you just fucked up royal” Not, “Send me your address and I’ll send you a copy” not, “If you want a copy, send me $50/$100/$1,000 and I’ll send you a master transfer.” His answer to me was basically, “Fuck you! You will not question me and you will pay what I say to get what you want.”


Rob has never suggested in any way, shape or fashion that his intent was to come here and try to make money. If that was his intent, don’t you think he would have said something along those lines months ago??

I have always liked you a lot Voodoo … and thought of you as one of the truly great VHT members. If someone had asked me yesterday, “Who do think is going to say something stupid and stir shit up in this thread?” I would have never guessed in a million years that it would be you.

I don’t know what got into you tonight – but please cut this shit out. It does nothing but create bad feelings at the site and piss people off.

at this point in time I have invested hundreds of hours of my time thousands of dollars on professional equipment and have made zero dollars..ZERO..,I have never sold any of my films ..excuse me Glenn’s Films..he spent over 3k on the original filming setup and the film cartridges cost over 10 dollars each back in 1977..and he has over 300 reels of film…other people have sold stuff but not us..I had remastered the films in full HD and wanted to share some of it which I did….then somebody complains about it..thanks for all your comments about how big of an asshole I am..

voodoo: We love seeing this footage and we’d all love to have it to trade openly, but it seems obvious that this footage isn’t going to be shared in it’s most pure form until some entity with unlimited funds purchases it and sells it to us.

single-8: somebody had to come along and say something stupid like this..you just fucked up royal S8S

voodoo: So, you were planning on sharing your footage for free?

I have no clout to comment here but I’ll just go ahead and speak my mind anyways.

We just received the utmost ultimate mindblowing gift of LIVE VH in their prime in pristine crystal clear vision and amazing editing of still shots showing EVH playing the Dragonsnake and white star before it was the white star. Eddie probably only played those guitars very few times for all we know only this one show in Fresno. There are no pictures that I know of anywhere of this unique occasion. The earlier versions of this footage was so blurry we couldn’t really even see.

So now we have knowledge that this footage excists in crystal clear vision. It is a godsend of the highest magnitude. S8S has just blessed us VH fans with the utmost important thing VH fans want its more than the band has ever put out.

Patience is a virtue. The S8S channel has been up less than a year. Just knowing it excists and eventually everyone will probably see it at some point is more than enough.

And you have the audacity to bitch about not having it all right now in full at once as though he owes it to you you ungrateful fuck after he just put up not one but two killer videos this week. The ignorance of those comments and tone of entitlement overwhelming. Totally rude belligerent disrespectful and completely uncalled for. Really low blow there. You should’ve been happy as a pig in shit just to get the clips that have already been put up so far. If Santa Clause gave you a Porshe for Christmas you’d probably bitch that it wasn’t a Lamborghini. Ignorant ballsack of fuck.

This S8S YouTube channel popped up less than a year ago I’ve subscribed and followed the threads regularly.

As I mentioned a few times in this thread. It is your footage; you can do with it what you like. Even if you want to sell the footage that is entirely up to you. No-one can tell you what you should be doing with the footage. if you do share more in the future great, if you get a big money deal from VH to sell the footage to them, great. if you release it all for free, great, etc etc etc. I am just thankful for the stuff you have shared with us.

I wouldn’t be too hard on voodoo. He’s probably just speaking from a pure trader/bootlegger perspective.

I grew up liking VH in the Sammy era around 5150 and then went back on all their stuff.
To see this awesome footage at their beginning was a great insight into how explosive and hungry they were as a band back then..Just to have this stuff around is very much appreciated as the band wont release anything like this..

Voodoo is just as keen as we all are to see more of your great footage….Lets not drag VHT down to the level of some other VH sites out there..This is the best place for anything VH or music in general…We are all VH brothers and love sharing or hearing anything related to VH..The quality and time & effort of the projects released here is Top Shelf and puts most official releases to shame..
I have made many great friends on this site from all over the World and look forward to meeting many more.

Lets all take a deep breath relax sit back and enjoy all the cool aspects of this place and the things people bring to VHT..

I don’t understand why 1 posters comments can ruin everything. It just makes no sense. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

I made the assumption that, since he isn’t sharing or trading the footage and he went through the effort and expense of transferring the footage, made samples of all of his footage, created an account on YouTube and then uploaded all of the teasers that he was looking to sell his collection to someone. He has a lot more than Van Halen and I never said he was selling it here, but that he is definitely looking to gain….something. When I asked if he was planning to share it for free, suddenly I “fucked up”.

I honestly don’t know what to think about this whole thing. As a fan and a collector, I would love to have all the footage, but that’s obviously not going to happen in a trade here. What got into me was curiosity. I made the observation that someone was going to have to buy the files in order for us to get a complete copy. That is usually what happens when someone who isn’t embedded in a trading community like this has something rare that no one else has. I wasn’t attacking him, personally. I made the obvious assumption that someone was going to have to buy the rights to this before we’ll get to see all of the footage in HD without watermarks and that got him so pissed that he deleted the video “teaser”. He can keep it. Sell it. Trade it. Do whatever the hell he wants to do with it.

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

I would have guessed it would have been ME!

I’ve really enjoyed the videos, thanks for sharing.
