Go Fly a Kite
Weiss had an agreement with Van Halen saying he would take photos "at their discretion." The afternoon of the Chicago show in 1982, Roth phoned his hotel room. "He said, 'I want to go outside and fly a kite. Bring your camera.' I took photos for an hour. At one point the kite got stuck in a tree and he had to climb it. If you look in the background, you can see one of the trucks from the tour."
