    Default EDDIE VH at Jimmy Page's Rock Walk Induction Video

    Nice backstage Video from that event

    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    Nice find, man.

    Schonicity meter through the ceiling, at about the 4 min mark!!

    I've never seen videos from this event before. Here's another that includes a really touching private conversation between Ed and Dweezil. I guess this was a couple days after Frank died. Dweezil looks like he'd rather be anywhere else and Ed puts his arm around him and talks to him for a bit, then hugs him. Then he gives a nice little speech about Page.

    I don't know why, but it annoys me that Ed fired up a cig. For some reason, I knew he would.

    I know it was still 1993 but his smoking stuck out like a sore thumb.

    IDK, I think it's rude.

    Because maybe I'm used to how it is now and if somebody is standing next me and lights up and ain't outside...I ain't gonna like it.

    It's just my hang up I guess and I think it's rude if one doesn't ask.

    He was posing for the cover of Guitar World smoking a cig. These were different times, people in the rock world still thought it was cool to smoke.

    It's because the lit cigarette draws the eye away from Page, who's the honoree, over to Ed.
    Like Eddie is trying to upstage Page, "outcool" him, in his own photo session.

    Watching this, I honestly get the vibe Eddie has some real jealousy of Page.

    Everyone else attempts to dress up for the event, in a rock way.
    Eddie's sweat shirt and jeans say, "Yeah, I can pop in if you want, but this ain't no big deal to me."

    Notice Ed makes the "whoops!" joke about putting his own hands in the cement on the way in, and when Page is making the impression, he says, "Can I get a finger in?"
    He wants it to be HIS hands going in the cement!
    (I know Eddie's already got his own spot on the Rock Walk, but still, I think he's annoyed to be at a guitar event that's not about him.)

    Frankly, Ed should be calling Page up for advice on how to meticulously edit a vocal for a great live album.
    Or how to produce a comprehensive video collection and studio rarities the fans want.

    Fair enough. But unless we're in a casino I don't think you have a problem.

    I'm polite, but if other people are doing it I'm not gonna ask for permission.

    You can't be serious with any of this.

    I should have taken bets on this reaction. I'd have some money. But yes, I believe it.

    You'd definitely collect some cash.
    First off, he's smoking cuz he wants to, and has to. Secondly, he's wearing what's comfortable for him. I really don't see any of them looking in a "rock way".
    Thirdly, jealous? Ed doesn't treat his predecessors like that. If it was that much of an issue for him he would've just stayed home.

    I try to limit my exposure to casinos because of it.

    5 minutes in one and you come out smelling like a cigarette butt.

    Page also smokes, and I'm sure several other guys in the room do, too. They managed to go without for five minutes to get the pictures made.

    As the other poster pointed out, everybody's got on a sport jacket but one guy. If it's an event in someone's honor, and you know everyone is going to make an effort to look a little dignified, and you show up looking like you're ready to mow the lawn, you send a signal.

    You're right. The guy who said Page "sounds like he has a broken hand and he's two years old" and Joe Perry "lacks feel" certainly has nothing but nice things to say about his predecessors. I'm way off.

    Some of the bigger casinos aint bad. You can breathe at least. But yeah, I've been to some places where even I need to go out and get some air.
