    Major sadness.

    I was just watching The Shadow the other night and was surprised to see him in the movie. It got me to thinking that I should check out his filmography to see if he had done anything a bit more substantial that I may have missed.

    Growing up in the early 70's he was always a favorite on all the variety shows of the time and of course The Tonight Show. He even made Mork and Mindy kind of bearable for the short time he was there.

    One of the greats that we never really got enough from. I don't know any facts, but it seemed to me that he went into seclusion for many years, or maybe he just wasn't very public outside his profession.

    RIP Mr. Winters. You made me laugh and inspired me... a lot.

    haven't seen Mr. Winters in a long time, but I remember him as being very funny. Rest in peace, Jonathan.

    Tremendous talent and a great man.

    I've been trying to find the one where he's the football player being interviewed by Dean Martin. Slays me! I haven't been able to find it.

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney
