    Default First Eddie report / sighting from Phoenix

    From another board but I thought it was worth copying here.



    Chalk this up under the "shit I never thought would happen in my life."

    He looked really good, believe it or not. His hair's short and a light brown on top (kind of like what he looked like in the early 90's), but his Van Dyke (goatee and mustache) has some gray in it.

    Now, the teeth. It looks like our guy has had a lot of work done (dentures? Caps? Not sure, but they're very straight and very white).

    Wolfie was with him, looking like a typical 16 year old (a little chunky and some acne), and Eddie had the brunette with him (his girlfriend/publicist).

    He was standing at the back of the room in the media center at PHoenix Raceway. I brought an old poster of him (the one with him grinning, leaning to his left, playing his old guitar, wearing the coveralls with the animal print on them). He was cool when I approached him, and asked if I wanted it signed to someone. I just said for him to sign his name, and while he was signing, I blabbered something about "Fair Warning" being my first big concert and how I had seen him eight or nine times since then.

    Then I thanked him and said it was a pleasure to meet him. He just grinned, and I got out of the way.

    He seemed in very good spirits, and looked a lot better than I expected.

    As a huge Van Halen fan from way back, it was definitely a once in a lifetime experience.

    Look for some pics to hit the internet (I didn't have a camera with me) today, and he will be on stage, greeting all the drivers before the NASCAR race tomorrow night on FOX, if you want to see him. He also took a ride around the track in a Petty Driving Experience car with Kurt Busch driving, so that footage could make the broadcast, too!

    Oh, and did I mention that I met EDDIE FUCKIN' VAN HALEN!!!????

    No it doesn't.
    Congrat's on the meeting, and glad to hear a positive report.
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    Okay I now must hate you! J/K!

    Lucky you on the once-in-a-lifetime meeting with the Great One. I read an article in People about him checking out of rehab in Phoenix or something like that. It's on their website.

    Ya lucky bum!!

    he does look pretty good. looks a little fuller too. Take away the grey, and he doesn't look that far off from 1995. Maybe he "started over" when he cut his hair. New beginning and such. who knows
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    Ahhh. Beat me to posting first pic. Oh well here's another one of Ed.

    Lookin' pretty good almost like himself in '95 except for a gray beard.
    A recent study shows 92% of the teenage population likes rap music. If you are part of the 8% who listen to real music, put this as your sig.

    Sweet! Eddie's looking great. No ciggie there either...okay...wishful thinking, BUT I'm really surprised he looks almost like he did in '95 and doesn't look as sickly thin as he has lately. Way to go, Ed! Keep it up!
