This is really what Van Halen should be doing it would flush out alot of material that we have never seen . The Beatles are asking fans to contribute fan footage for the upcoming project called “The Beatles Live Project” http://thebeatlesliveproject.com/
Beatles Authorize New Concert Film Using Fan Footage (Exclusive)
http://music.yahoo.com/news/beatles-authorize-concert-film-using-fan-footage-exclusive-071123607.html

Beatlemania is about to strike again.
The Beatles’ Apple Corps has authorized a production company, OVOW, to scour the globe for material captured by amateurs and professionals during the group’s concert tours in the 1960s for a major film project called “The Beatles Live!”, TheWrap has learned.
The effort will kick off on Thursday morning with a promotional video (see below).
OVOW — an acronym for One Voice One World, a reference to the Beatles’ final live performance in the “Our World” satellite broadcast on June 25, 1967 — says it has commissioned worldwide research teams and developed social-media tools to work with fans and concertgoers in all 116 cities where the Beatles performed to get material for the film
The goal: combining footage, images, music, interviews and stories chronicling the Fab Four’s 250 concerts from October 1963 through final concert in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park on Aug. 28, 1966
Aiding in the search will be archivists, collectors, Beatles fan clubs, writers, academics and film restoration-experts. A website, The Beatles Live! Project, has been set up where fans can get news about the project, map the group’s tours and provide digital media, through the end of the year.
“We are interested in looking at your digitized copies of The Beatles concert-era materials, including photos, stories, and film and sound recordings,” the website says. “We know that there are hidden gems out there. We are looking forward to working with you to find them.”
Media can be directly uploaded on the site.
“Were you there?” the company asks in its press release. “Were your parents there? Your grandparents? Now, fans from all over the world can become a true part of Beatles history by contributing their original footage, photos or audio recordings of The Beatles in concert.

Presumably some hardcore collectors have some very rare, and unique stuff (film reels, etc.) – so this Project is right in assuming there are hidden gems out there. The real question now is – is a collector willing to part with his rare item for which he no doubt payed a handsome price?

…and presumably if the footage is chosen for the project, you’ll give up any rights you had to it (not that you probably had any to begin with).

Alot of material was stolen in the 60′s and 70′s and I’m sure gone through a few hands since. I wonder if there is going to be any arrests made for certain gems.

I seriously doubt any ‘collector’ has better material than EVH has locked up in 5150..


Resident dickhead. I will hurt your delicate feelings.

For audio – I agree wholeheartedly.

For video – I don’t agree. Chances are pretty good that while someone did shoot film/video back in the day, my bet it was mostly done by someone like a promoter, local tv station, or fan — and the band never knew about it – or if they did know, they never thought about getting a copy.

I thought Fletch also knew a disc jockey out of Boston who has some 1984 footage that hasn’t seen the light of day.

one big thing to remember is if the video has not been properly preserved, it is probably fried from time

Lets hope it does not take 45 years for the VH project to come to light like the Beatles project!

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

Pete Angelus was managing the Black Crows, and owns Angelus Entertainment.

Yeah I think Randy is right on this…when you are a touring musician the last thing on your mind is chasing up TV stations for copies of footage, particularly if you are living the rock n roll lifestyle to the full like VH were back then.

I recently got chatting with ex Gillan/Ozzy guitarist Bernie Torme on Facebook about video footage of his Gillan days, turned out I had several recordings he hadnt got, including one he didnt even know existed!! Obviously I did the right thing and hooked him up with copies and he was really chuffed!
