GETTING TO KNOW VAN HALEN

GETTING TO KNOW VAN HALEN

The next clip was of Gary interviewing members of Van Halen before one of the band’s concerts in 1988. Gary added that, when he was taken to where the band was, it was just him, Alex Van Halen, Eddie Van Halen, Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, which he said made him even more nervous than he already was. Gary also noted Fred wrote the questions for him, and that he was kicked out of the room by Van Halen’s road manager because of his “retarded questions.”
In the clip, Gary first asked Van Halen to record “an i.d.” for KROCK, and the manager confronted him and informed him the band wouldn’t do such a thing. Gary next asked a series of questions – including if the band ever smeared dog excrement on any of its female fans, if any of them had hair-weaves, and if they were sexually attracted to each other – before the road manager made him leave.
