heres an Interesting story about chris holmes and the king, not sure if some of the details are entirely true however, but a good read

"Chris has been a friend of Eddie Van Halen since their childhood in Pasadena. Chris used to play a cool Ibanez Destroyer back then and Eddie borrowed it for the Women and Children First album in 1980. Chris originally got one cause Eddie had one, but Eddie cut his guitar and the sound was gone. Later the modded shape would evolve into one of the coolest guitars - Charvel Star."

Didnt know chris holmes and eddie van halen were friends back in the day, thats pretty damn interesting
