Van Halen II 1979 Platinum RIAA Award

On April 3, 1979, the Recording Industry of America issued the Platinum record award to Van Halen and Warner Bros. Records for selling 1,000,000 units of their Van Halen II record in the United States. This award is the actual award that given to Warner Bros. Records back in 1979, and was on display at their offices in Hollywood for several years. During this era, all of the Gold and Platinum Awards were made by the New York Frame & Picture Company exclusively for the RIAA. Obviously, Eddie Van Halen and the rest of the band have been a big musical influence on me, regarding their David Lee Roth era music. Here's a link to my Van Halen Music Influence page.
