    Default Cool story about Alex

    My wife works at the check in counter at MGM where they are playing tomorrow and she noticed him in the lobby. She asked her manager if it was cool for her to go say hi and get an autograph...as a good wife of any devout Van Halen fan would do. She walks over and says hello and the guy is just as personable as can be. She was a bit starstruck, but he put her right at ease and just really bullshitted with her. She told him we were attending the show...my only tat is a VH tat, how much I love the band, etc. During their conversation he talked about the postponement of dates (they are tired), when Dave left the band (he wanted back in, but they were too far along with Sammy), and mentioned how much she liked Stay Frosty (he just laughed, like he knew they were sitting on a gold mine). He would have stayed longer, but his folks kind of got him back on whatever schedule they were on.

    What was so cool was that her cell phone was dead, but one of the people he was with took a pic and actually texted it to her later that night. How cool is that? He also signed an autograph for me that says "Jim, you kick ass...Alex Van Halen." That shit is getting framed above the mantle.

    Anyways...glad to see they are so cool, glad my lady took care of me, and so looking forward to the show tonight.

    Nah, that is for us. I can confirm he was wearing a Colorado Buffalos hat and had on a pretty bad shirt.

    I found it more interesting that Al just wanted to shoot the shit. He has always seemed accesible...and maybe he was making nice with the help, but that was a nice little tidbit.

    I would guess that Al is pretty friendly. He probably doesn't recognized as much. And when he does, he has to tell people he wasn't in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

    When my wife told the manager that was Al he did not think it was, so you are probably right.
