This could be the greatest photo ever taken
Every once in a while a piece of Apple history emerges that is so utterly amazing that I can’t imagine how I somehow never knew about it. Case in point, this picture of a genuinely in-shape Steve Wozniak and a totally wasted(-looking) David Lee Roth.
The story goes that Steve Wozniak sponsored two Multi-Day rock concerts back in ’82 and ’83 called the US Festivals. Big name acts included such legends as The Police, Motley Crue, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, the Kinks, B-52’s, Ozzy Osbourne, U2, David Bowie and many others. Oh, and of course Van Halen who apparently netted a cool $1.5 million to play the gig.
Legend has it that VH was originally supposed to get $1 million to play the gig, but had a clause in their contract saying they would be paid more than any other group playing the festival, and David Bowie also landed a $1million pay check. So, that certainly explains Diamond Dave’s wasted grin.
Less happy, perhaps, should be Woz, who It is rumored personally lost $20 million between the two festivals. But ultimately, the revenge was Woz’s as he totally nailed Dave with the “Bunny Ears”.
Speaking of Bunny ears, Happy Easter!
