EP1 Building 5150 Studio
EP2 The Road to the US Festival
It’s an unofficial, 5-Part Fan-Made Miniseries.
The year 1984 was, arguably, Van Halen at its peak. The band’s creativity and tensions reached an optimum balance — enough to keep the passion in the music but not enough yet to destroy the band. This 5-part fan-made miniseries results from seven months of research, interviews, and video editing.
The unofficial rockumentary was made by a lifelong VH fan at The Tapes Archive, who tells VHND, “After seven months of work, my new Van Halen 5-part series is about to be released. (Over 2.5 hours) Lots of newly uncovered information and media never seen by the public.”
There are 5 episodes in total. All will be released to YouTube for free viewing.
EP1: Building 5150 Studios
EP2: The Road to the US Festival
EP3: The Making of the 1984 Album
Ep4: The 1984 Tour
EP5: Van Halen Breaks Up
