    Default Ed and Al Indonesian?

    Is it true that the brothers are actually 1/2 Indonesian?

    If you look at Al you can kinda see it.

    Yep, on their mom's side of the family.

    I think most of Indonesia had been colonized by the Dutch. This probably isn't that uncommon in Dutch families.

    As far as I know, it hasn't been established for a fact if their mom is full-blooded Indonesian or just half.
    There's only one interview that I know of out of the hundreds of interviews they've done where Alex mentions the Indonesian thing, in an indirect way.

    During the senior year of high school (1982) there was a chick in my art class who constantly talked about Van Halen. She drew a giant size picture of Eddie which to me (not yet knowing who it was) was somebody with asian features. I later saw pictures of them in Circus and Cream magazines and it was always apparent to me that they had some asian in their background. Years' later I happen to come across a few photos of their mom and it was obvious it was she was asian women.

    There's a couple of shots in the booklet for Live: Right Here, Right Now. where Ed's asian features are quite clear IMHO.
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    OMG are things so boring that threads are now dedicated to the nationality of the Halen bros????

    I think we can do better than that.
