Van Halen Reality Show was a top story in September. Here it is again as we recap 2010: Van Halen News Desk has a very special treat for Van Halen fans. They have posted a 1984 MTV special, "Lost Weekend With Van Halen," that includes everything that aired on the network as well as previously unaired footage.

VHND dubs the special MTV's first reality show and had this background info: When MTV announced it's Lost Weekend With Van Halen contest, the network received over a million postcard entries for a chance to spend three days with the band during their 1984 tour. The lottery couldn't have found a more perfect average Joe than twenty-year-old Kurt Jefferis, a department store loading dock employee from Phoenixville, Pennsyvania.

Kurt's catch was the American boyhood dream, 1984-style. A couple days spent tasting the life of Van Halen! Kurt's hometown newspaper ran the headline, "Would You Let Your Son Spend A Weekend With These Guys?" His mother quipped she wished her son had won a lost weekend with Perry Como instead. - watch it here
