    Default An emotional tribute, Kiwi Style

    At the funeral for a New Zealand teacher Dawson Tamatea, who died in his sleep at age 55, students at Palmerston North Boys’ High School in Manawatu performed a haka, a traditional dance and war chant native to New Zealand’s Maori people. (The All Blacks rugby team can usually be seen doing the ancestral tribute before a match.)

    The “entire school” performed the emotional tribute as the hearse arrived, according to a description of the video on YouTube. School rector David Bovey described the performance as “spine-tingling” in an interview with ONE News.

    The ultimate send off. He must of been a pretty popular teacher.
    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
