    Default How about an Eddie Van Halen "Living Tribute" show?

    I suggested this as part of a post in the RM.

    How do you think it would go down and who would want to be a part of a "Living Tribute to Eddie Van Halen" show much like they did for Les Paul almost 20 years ago?
    They could get VH1 to tape and air it either on VH1 or VH1 Classic.

    It would be a great way to honor the most influential guitar player in the last 30+ years and get to still do it when he is ALIVE.

    Who I think would want to be a part of it.
    Alex (of course)
    Sammy
    Mike
    Dave (I think he would want to do it and be able to not make it about him)
    Gary
    Nuno
    Ted Nugent
    Dweezil
    Steve Vai
    Steve Lukather
    Zakk Wylde
    Slash and many more

    They could end the show with a huge jam session and have Eddie close it out by kicking into "Eruption" and the Wolfie joining him on the second half of it.

    Now we just need someone to promote this thing.

    Gotta have Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and Billy Sheehan there.

    Wayne: ...and uh...VAN HALEN!!!
    Garth: Wow. Van Halen. Who else?

    Wayne: Uh, an old man fashioning a kayak out of a log?

    Thats an awesome idea. The sad part is is that Ed would probably never want to be a part of something like that. And from what I have heard from people on this site is that Clapton doesn't really care much for Eddie. I know Page would be there as well as Zakk, Dweezil and others but I still woudn't think that Ed would be hip to people focusing all their attention on him.

    I would love to go see that though.

    There's more chance of Dave and Sam duetting 'It Had To Be You' with Eddie playing xylophone accompaniment than this happening.
