totally inappropriate...mainstream or not, it's amazing what record companies will do to sell their mediocre product, makes you wonder who came up with it, the band or madison ave? ...this would have been burned in the porn wars of the '80s

I just want to draw you (or anyone else) out little for more specificity, slime.oofytv., on just what makes you and whoever else want to puke.

offended?
: no... not a lot of stuff that actually offends me these days unless it's directed to me personnaly, even then i wanna believe i gotta fairly thick skin...


Is it the fact of their being conjoined twins?: didn't notice that, so no...

Nudity?: only because of the context; hard rock band/sex/drugs/rock/roll & kids?...

Nudity and age?: especially the suggestive pose/facial expression of the one in front, legs spread, pouting, helpless, with a cylindrical object across thighs...

one appearing to be distressed while the other appears to be content? no, that didn't jump out at me either...

what pissed me off; you hit it on the head w/....Madison Ave." ...sole purpose of selling product consisted mainly of sex, suggestive sex, grossness...

....VH album cover is not so blatent as all that... maybe that's what it is, so after looking at the image again, maybe it's subliminal, like the white object on the right in the grass, a cross between an innocent rock, a frog maybe, or a limp dick rising? maybe their other shit going on in the background?.... madison ave at it's best; i dunno; never a big fan of van halen, the cover hasn't changed my 'umble opinion of the band or their music (mediocre commercial rock for the masses), or their fans...hey, it's only music, whatever floats yer ship arriving too late...if the same photo were hanging in a famous art/photography gallery, i probably wouldn't give it a 2nd thought

...Very typical '60s through '80s Madison Ave subliminal advertizing art is all there.
But this was put out in about 1980 when we hadn't been so effectively forced to become aware of "Kiddie Porn" just yet. That was just about to happen at that point. Today that would be illegal just as the law stands...

...but it's strange to see that within less than two decades everyone has become so sensitized to anything that even suggests "kiddie porn"...


it's true times have changed, but 20 yrs is a long time....maybe that's why frank wouldn't let an underage vai into the band when he first auditioned:

...Remember that FZ wouldn't let Steve Vai play with him at first, because he figured he was way too young, and I mean that boy can really play, so for OTIS to play with FZ at the age of 15 says something about his skills...

... Certainly Vai was old enough to play with Zappa by 19 or 20....

he wasn't underage, that's the only reason i could think of why zappa would turn him down
