En fouinant sur le web à propos d’infos musicales et en visitant le site de Miss Kittin, je tombe sur une histoire assez rigolote. A rajouter au long recueil des bourdes volontaires ou non liées aux utilisateurs d’eBay…

he he he…
Another joke to add to our legend.
I am glad I made such a guy so angry, because he was stupid enough to
think we had time to lose in ripping people off using the name of
Van Halen on Ebay! If I was that naively useless, I would have chosen
a funnier band anyway! And our friends Tommie Lee and Marylin Manson
would be a better support than stupid FBI who are too busy chasing
serial killer rednecks.
Conclusion: we don´t need no USA market quest, we already won it!
And it shows how Ebay sucks sometimes.
So dudes, you know the score, nothing can beat your record store.
