From Wikipedia: “According to a January 4, 1977, L.A. Times article entitled HOMEGROWN PUNK by Robert Hilburn, Rodney Bingenheimer saw Van Halen at the Gazzarri club in the summer of 1976, so he took Gene Simmons of Kiss to see Van Halen. Gene Simmons then produced a Van Halen demo tape with recording beginning at the Village Recorder studios in Los Angeles and finished with overdubs at the Electric Lady Studios in New York. Simmons wanted to change the band’s name to “Daddy Longlegs”, but the band stuck with Van Halen. Simmons then opted out of further involvement after he took the demo to Kiss management and was told that “they had no chance of making it” and that they wouldn’t take them.”

The NYPD is pressuring Manhattan club owners to buy ID scanners that collect the personal information of every patron carded at the door, sources said.
The move is ostensibly part of police anti-terror efforts, according to one source said — but opponents are crying foul, saying it’s a civil-rights violation for patrons and could lead to identity theft.
“Any bar below 14th Street has been approached by . . . a police sergeant,” said one angry nightclub owner who asked to remain anonymous.
“They say you need to get these scanners. I have three places and it’s happened to two of them. Police are pressuring us,” the owner said.
Bars with the devices have bouncers swipe every patron’s ID card through the scanner. The patron’s name, date of birth and address is then downloaded and made available to the NYPD upon request.
