    Wow an Ed sighting.....he's come a long way since banging groupies two at a time.

    Very nice to see Edward getting all this mature recognition and accolades, lately!
    Way to go, Eddie.

    ‪#‎ICYMI‬ Not only did Eddie Van Halen donate 75 Peavey Wolfgang electric guitars from his personal collection four years ago that went to seven schools in the Los Angeles area, he and his brother Alex donated $100,000 this year to MHOF, which will keep instruments flowing to more kids and more schools for a long time!
    Thank you Eddie for being a true champion for music education!

    I always wondered about that. All those guitars were from his personal collection, right? Makes you try to imagine how many axes Eddie owns in total, both before that gesture and after?
