    Dave and Al out together at lecture

    Found this on http://positiveapeindex.blogspot.com/ Dated July 17th

    So last night, The Missuz and I went out to see my pal Andy Cruz of House Industries give a lecture at the Eames Office in Santa Monica. When we walked in, Andy was holding court, talking to a small group of people, two of whom I immediately recognize as Alex Van Halen and David Lee Roth! DUDE!!!

    I waited a while, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to meet Diamond Dave & Alex. I had brought a set of my custom Hot Wheels as a gift for Andy, so I figured this was a perfect excuse to interrupt. As soon as Andy sees me, he cracks up, because he knows I'm gonna bust his balls for the inherent absurdity of his hanging with half of the legendary Van Halen, specifically their best ( and only, as far as I'm concerned) frontman. Little did I know I was about to get a surprise.

    Andy introduces me to the boys, and Roth, upon hearing my name, TAKES OFF HIS SUNGLASSES (I shouldn't have to tell you that this is a big deal in rock star body language) and says something to the effect of "The artist Coop?" than proceeds to tell me what a big fan he is of ME!!! Completely flustered by this exclamation, I stammered something about being familiar with his work as well. I talked to both he and Alex for a while, as well as I could, anyway. They were both there to meet Andy, as they were also big fans of the House aesthetic (and who could blame them!)

    All I could think about while talking to these two RAWK GAWDS is when I was in junior high, and a hessian pal brought his cassette of "Fair Warning" to play during a music class. I suddenly had a Proustian moment, remembering the tinny cassette player blasting "Mean Street", the sound reverberating off the walls of the cinderblock Brutalist classroom.

    Of course, as I was writing this, I realized I forgot to ask for a photo with the boys. Stupid.

    Here's some info on the event... http://www.aigalosangeles.org/events...ves/002223.php

    And here's the photo of Dave and Al at the event

    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman
