    Default Jonas : Eddie *Our Big Brother*

    Here's a link to a French(Montreal) interview of Jonas, who was the Van Halen 2004 tour opening act(last leg tour).

    In the first part of the interview Jonas was asked about is VH opening act experience and says that Eddie was like a big brother with his band..., as he was spending some time with them every night before the shows.

    Note that Jonas comes from Montreal just like me, but, he is an anglophone just like you people(I'm a francophone)..., he's working hard on his French speaking in this interview.

    I bet there'll be some Jonas/VH backstage footage on his DVD.

    *Note that for those who never heard Jonas, you can hear his version of Stevie Nicks *Edge Of Seventeen* on the first link.

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    okay...

    I just saw the clip of the interview.
    It's a little over two minutes of his experience with Van Halen.
    And i thought i'd share it for us English speaking linkers.

    Jonas was asked how it felt being the opening act for one of the biggest bands in history, his answers were really no different than any other band that has had the honour of opening for them.

    He said...

    " It was really stressful, and a lot of pressure in the sense that i grew up idolizing these guys, and here we are opening for them... but Eddie was great,first time we met he came in our dressing room and we talked for about an hour...later on he would come and hang out with us every single night in our dressing room, and just talk about stuff, not necessarily about jamming backstage or showing guitar tricks, but in general about what to do... and what not to do at shows, and make fun of things that go on at shows that they laugh about. (either themselves or other bands) and we would watch their performances, after every show to learn a few tricks and see the way they played and pick up a few things"

    He went on saying that they were all really cool guys, and dubbed Eddie as a "Crazy Big Brother" which i thought was cool, He thought Sam was cool as well (there was no mention of al or Mike by the way)

    He was also asked if his time with Van Halen influenced him to head for a different vibe on his next album and Jonas said no not really. ( i guess he has his own style and knows not to mess with it)

    So there it is folks in a nutshell.

    Most bands that open for VH always comment how well the boys treat them.
