    Default EVH Event in DC on 2/12/15

    http://www.whatitmeanstobeamerican.o...t-reinvention/

    From the site:

    What makes rock ’n’ roll quintessentially American? The answer may lie in our talent for innovation and reinvention–two subjects no one knows better than Eddie Van Halen. A Dutch immigrant and naturalized U.S. citizen, Van Halen created an iconic American band–and kept it relevant for five decades by continually reinventing it. As a performer, songwriter, and inventor of instruments that allow musicians to make sound in new ways, he redefined how the guitar is played and designed. Is reinvention the definitive quality of the art of rock ‘n’ roll? Rock icon Van Halen discusses his American journey, and how he’s reinvented himself, his band, and the way the guitar is played.

    It's a pretty new setting for him to express himself, a serious, Charlie Rose-type of environment. Could be good.

    Should be interesting. I hope someone gets some video of the event and can post it afterwards.

    What's the Vegas line on whether Ed mentions he started on the drums?
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Guessing there will not be a Q&A or that questions will be restricted to the discussion or pre-screened but it would be cool if the floor is opened to questions from the fans as we all have many.

    Exactly. This has the potential to be really, really cool and insightful. We're joking here about the "started playing the drums" story, but it's true...how often have fans had the opportunity to hear Ed talk from the heart about his upbringing, his drive, his feelings and patriotism for his adopted country? Very rarely. Yeah, I still think we'll get a couple "I'm a tone chaser" blurbs, but it should bring more out from Ed than any other venue.

    This should be a treat since Ed hasn't done too many things like this lately.

    I can't even believe I'm typing this out, but I am registered, have my tickets printed, and will be there front and center.

    Even if he says the usual "started on drums", this is really cool when you think 55 years ago, he was an immigrant coming over on a ship. To be invited to something like this with everything he has been through is an accomplishment.

    Hopefully Dave doesn't show up to steal the spotlight a la MTV Awards
