Man thats pretty young. Guy was a legend and made it big with Van Halen and Van Hagar. Van Hagar was UndeadSnoopy's favorite band

RIP EVH. I saw them in Dallas in '92. I think one of them, either Eddie or Alex, lit something on fire on stage at the end. It was pretty cool.

It was the mid-80's, probably 85, maybe 86. My aunt and uncle had a suite at the Dome. I went with my cousin to a Saints game, and we're sitting down pregame eating some food, when he was looking at me, well looking past me. He nudged me and said, "uh, I think that's Eddie Van Halen in the suite right next to us." I turned to look and I swear about 15' away was Eddie and Valeri. I was in shock and I'm sure I stared too long. I knew I stared too long when he caught me staring and said, "hey man, what's up". I don't remember what I said back but I'm sure it wasn't English or anything resembling any other language.

Oh and Valeri was, too use an 80's term, fine.

Van Halen was my very first concert ever at the Baltimore Civic Center a LONG time ago (Rush was my second). I can't remember which album the tour was for but WAY before OU812.
I saw them twice at the dump Capitol Center down in Largo, MD. I wasn’t real impressed, but apparently there was a lot of tension in the band which may have contributed to a less-than-exemplary show. coincidentally the opening act at the first show in 1980 was....Sammy Hagar. The second time I saw them a year or so later there must have still been tension—very so-so.

Van Halen’s first album is one of the best rock albums of all time.

EVH could be a real pill, but he was an undeniable talent

RIP
