    Default Worthless VH tidbit from Melbourne's Herald Sun newspaper

    I work for the Herald Sun. There's usually very little of interest to me in the newpaper.

    However, a little story on page 97 of today's edition caught my eye:

    Alongside a 1998 head shot of EVH, it read:

    "Rocker Eddie Van Halen and his drummer brother, Alex, have sold a house in a gated Beverly Hills neighbourhood for about $2.5 million. They bought the property for their mother, who died in 2005 aged 89. It features three bedrooms and four bathrooms."

    FYI, 2.5 million of our Aussie dollars equals roughly 2.2 million US dollars.

    Think about it, though: at least the Australian press have their priorities in order, as the story landed on page 97. In the states, a tale combining both rock stars and real estate not only would have been front page news, it would be the lead item on most "entertainment" television shows, along with making it to "Headline News" every twenty-three minutes.
