    Dave speaks Spanish. Do Eddie, Alex or Mike speak another language, too? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Alex and Eddie speak the language of their birthplace, which is (I think) Dutch.

    Correct, Glenn. The Official site used to have an audio clip of Ed being interviewed by a Dutch radio station. I think it took place in the early- to mid-'90s. Ed was still pretty fluent in Dutch but had to pause a few times to recollect ceratin words. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Yeah, Eddie said in an interview, three years ago, that her therapist or singing teacher, I don't remember exactly, had found something wrong with his voice and then that she had overheard him speaking Dutch over the phone with his mom.
    She told him to stop talking in his native language, but he answered that he spoke Dutch everyday!
    I also suppose that Ed and Alex sometimes talk each other in Dutch.

    ed and alex must have spoken a lot of dutch in DLR's presence, just to make him feel left out, u know [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    anyway, a lot of dutch people also speak some german, coz there is some parenty between these two.

    does anybody of u know how big the van halen's are in the Netherlands?

    i mean, these two have to be some of the biggest musicians ever to be born over there?

    i'd like to hear EVH speak some dutch, must be funny [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    cheers,

    SToRM
    dave, we'd like to go upstairs, the two of us, with you ...

    *ahem....*

    Allow me to clarify something here if I may -

    Dave is trilingual - meaning he tries to say whatever he wants to, whenever he wants to. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]
