Cool….did you take these photos….if so can you recall a story or two about taking these photos and what it was like to see VH before hitting the big time?

Marvin has great photos and is a nice guy. Here is some of the VH stories he told me.

“From the first time I saw VH I knew they had the “X Factor” star power. David Roth had the charisma, jokes and was brilliant. Eddie’s playing was like watching Hendrix. Eddie filled the void after Jimi died in 1970. It was $2 admission at the Rock Corp on a Friday or Saturday night, during the week it was free. It was there that I struck up conversations with VH if it was an empty club. There were lots of weeknights the club was empty except for me and my girlfriend and maybe 5 or 10 other people. I told them that I wanted to shoot them so whenever they would play the Hollywood clubs, I would call Eddie or David and they would put me on the guest list. Around mid 1975, 2 yrs before they got their record deal, I was calling my friends at some different record labels and hyping VH. The record companies weren’t interested. Music was becoming disco and hard rock was going out. I kept trying to get them a record deal. Then I saw Gene Simmons at the Starwood and I knew he would make it happen. The rest is history.”

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”.
