    I have never been fortunate enough to meet the man himself. But I have heard that he is a real nice, quiet, down to earth kind of guy in person. Which is always refreshing to hear, what with so many rock stars with the huge ego thing going on.

    Until Brett shows up..
    I was fortunate to shake Eddie's hand as he walked from the bus to the hotel on the Fair Warning tour. He was sleepy but cordial.
    A year later we met up again on the Diver Down tour at the same hotel. I got a few picks and he even let me take a swig of his Blue Nun wine. He was buzzing, not out of it and was just a regular guy. A more detailed posting of my good fortune may still be on the forums somewhere. Take care
    Peace

    I have been lucky enough to hang out with the band, and Sammy when they come to Detroit since the F.U.C.K tour! It's like hangin hith a bunch of your good friend's!
    Everyone is laid back, and havin a good time, it's not an ego trip. I grew up thinkin
    the guys were bigger than life it self, then I met them, and we were on the same level! It was like they were just look alikes! You just cant belive it's the same guys!

    You guys want to hear the story again!!?? Ok.

    First of course I did meet Ed, backstage at the Great Western Forum in '95 on the Balance. A "Meet And Greet" thing where you meet the band, take a picture, etc. So I did that.

    Now for the story you want to hear. About 10 months ago, I was driving home from work and had to stop at the pet store. So I pull up to the light at Ventura Blvd. and Coldwater Canyon, and my windows are open and I'm listening to "Somebody Get Me A Doctor" fairly loudly, doing the air guitar thing on the steering that I always do. Just minding my own business, casually looking around. So I happen to glance to my right and there's a guy smiling at me in the car next to me. I look away, and then think "Holy shit, that's Eddie Van Halen!" So I look back, and it is indeed Ed, he's still smiling and he gives me a "thumbs up." Before I can really comprehend what's going on, the light changes and off he goes up Coldwater in his big black S-Class Mercedes. So there ya go, that's the story.

    Great fucking story Brett. I would give my left nut to have that happen to me. But, I live in Wisconsin so it is highly unlikely it will happen to me. But, someday I am gonna take a vacation out to California and am gonna do my best to find Ed. With help of my friends on the internet anything is fucking possible. And then I will have a little story to tell too bro.Peace out.
