    Not trying to stir up shit - just giving my perspective. In 10 years, I'll be in my early 60's ! I look at my sons, love those guys - I am happy doing for them (things that my parents couldn't do for me) - then extrapolating it to a millionaires view. I love my sons so much, and I do a lot for them - maybe too much - but I do make them do for themselves some too, so they have some skin in the game. I'd be doing them a disservice if I didn't.

    Perhaps so, but that was the same year Eddie striped Frankie! In fact I think it was the fall or winter of that year, after the record deal had been signed. So maybe he saw this Dils' guy's guitar earlier and thought, "Cool?" Greg Renoff tweeted part of Dave's radio show from 2006 where Dave took credit for the stripes even then, saying he got it from The Clash. Maybe Dave had his punk bands confused? Maybe him and Eddie were in a bar, saw the Dils guy's guitar and Dave says, "Look at that...cool idea," and counts that as thinking of the stripes.

    It's entirely possible...
    I remember a George Lynch comment about his old band 'The Boyz' being upstaged and outclassed by VH. He said something like "I stayed up all night trying to learn that (tapping?) technique and play those licks..."

    If Eddie got the idea from that other guitarist, I bet he attempted to copy it right away, or at least the next day (if he didn't have tape and spray paint on hand?).

    Julian was well on his way to a successful career until the record execs took over. It’s a shame too, he’s a talented fellow.

    Sean sounds a lot like his dad...and looks like he’s ready to don a white suit and walk across the street.




    Can’t tell from this video, but the dude has become a gym-rat...his pretty jacked

    Creepy how much John’s boys sound like him. Julian even has his mannerisms and sense of humor.

    Agreed. This song is amazing. Sits up there with just about anything his old man wrote.

    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

    I dunno, he seemed to really struggle to hold some of those notes. I mean...some he simply didnt hold. In parts it sorta reminded me of myself if I tried to sing.
