    How old was Mrs. VH when she had her children? I've seen a few pics of her with her kids when they were young and she always looks like an old woman. Btw, Eddie was a cute kid!

    Eugenia van Beers was born in 1914. Which would have made her app. 39 when she had Alex May 8th, 1953 and app. 41 when she had Ed January 26th, 1955.

    Jan Van Halen was born in 1920.

    The band originally lied about their age as they were starting out by one year. I guess to make everyone think they were younger than they really were?

    The band used to lie actually TWO years about their ages, as Ed is often reported to have been born in 1957, not '55.

    It's hard to believe that Edward got his first guitar in 1967 and in 10 short years we had Van Halen 1, with Ed being considered on of the best guitarist ever.

    Simply amazing!

    I think whats even sicker than that is that this little dude, by the time he got out of high school, had pretty much reinvented the instrument!
    I hear the stories about Eddie and Alex doing perfect note-for-note versions of Cream, The Who and others and I just shake my head in disbelief.
    They where little high school scrubs who had just been playing guitar & drums for like 2 or 3 years!! How in the hell man? unreal...

    You hear VH bootlegs from 75' & 76' and you can tell Ed was already sounded like a seasoned vet by then...

    Thanks for the pics. I wonder if anyone has a picture of their father. Since Al looks so much like his mom, it wouldn't be a stretch to think that Ed looks like dear old dad.

    Yes, I believe that was her maiden name. van Beers.

    The family actually changed their name from van Halen to Van Halen shortly after they arrived in America.
