In 1984, MTV gave contest winner Kurt Jefferis an opportunity to celebration all weekend together with his heroes: the notoriously wicked band Van Halen.
The then-fledgling music-video channel flew Jefferis and a friend from Phoenixville, Pa., to Detroit, the place they met up with the band at Cobo Corridor. First issues first, Jefferis informed The Put up, “a man passed me a bottle of Jack Daniels. I took a sip and requested for extra.” After being handed a joint, “I took a pair hits and a pair extra swigs of Jack Daniels.”
All over the display, Jefferis were given smashed within the face with cake and showered in champagne by way of the band participants, then he went behind the scenes the place there used to be a dinner party of lobster, filet mignon and cocaine.
“I did a pair traces. Then David [Lee Roth, the singer] stated, ‘I believe Kurt wishes Tammy,’ ” Jefferis recalled.
The groupie “took off her garments and began dancing bare. The 2 people wound up in combination within the bathe.”
After that, issues were given fuzzy. Unbeknownst to MTV, Jefferis had suffered mind trauma a few years previous, on account of falling 13 ft over a stairwell, and used to be no longer provided to care for Van Halen-level partying.
