Screamin’ Scott

7:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m.

Each week a story behind the pic. How it came to be? Who gave it to me, when and what concert and venue. You can also join in the fun by sending me a picture of a guitar pic and the story behind how YOU got one.

VAN HALEN April 27th, 1980: The 2nd night of two shows at Cobo Hall in Detroit. Can you believe a $10 ticket and it was the Women & Children first tour the World Invasion “Party ’til You Die Tour.” We managed to sneak onto main floor. I was pretty skinny back then and was able to squeeze close to the front. Eddie started into the song “Lose Control,” and the crowd went nuts. Then all of a sudden everyone was pushing and shoving me around and I fell forward. Only to see the Holy Grail inches from my hands. Reached out and got the pic! My hand even got stepped on, but I was not letting go of that pic! Highlight of the show was the encore with the song “Ain’t Talking About Love” with a crowd chorus of “Hey Hey Hey!” That show and the pic made for the Best Van Halen Show ever.

Send your story and a photo of your concert guitar pic to screamin@wrif.com   and maybe you will be a feature on my “PIC OF THE WEEK!”
