    Default Happy Edmas Eve. Letís share some fave EVH memories for this holiest of days

    This will be our first Edmas without EVH. Iím not doing well. But making playlists of Edmas carols and sharing memories has helped.

    What are some of your favorite EVH memories? My top has to be the last time I saw them live. It was my sons first time and we ended up in the front row against the barricade on Wolfís side. Watching my kid during Eruption brought tears to my eyes. I have a 1000 other memories but this one is close to my heart.

    Second time I saw VH
    had a sign that read "EDDIE I WANT YOUR PICK!!"
    I was around the third row Eddieīs side, he and Sammy read my sign and Ed proceded to throw me about 5-6 guitar picks, I managed to get one, still have it framed on my office.

    Gone but never forgotten!

    My son and I did the VIP Package back in 2012 at the Dallas, TX Show. Got to see soundcheck that included ďLight Up The SkyĒ (among others). So cool to see Eddie just being a regular guy and interacting with the fans before the show. What a Great show it was!





    Hard to believe that was almost 10 years ago.

    Here we are after the show

    I have so many great memories of Eddie Van Halen that it would be virtually impossible for me to pick a favorite. My life was changed forever the first time I heard his mind-boggling and other-worldy guitar playing over 42 years ago. His genius will live on forever through his amazing music.

    Not a memory, but it was Ed who taught me that it's okay to smile if you're having fun playing the guitar!

    Driving home yesterday from a stressful meeting. Dance the Night Away came on the radio. By the time it got to the chorus and I couldn't help it...a big smile came across my face, Ed your music has always been a balm to my soul. For all the music, I can never thank you enough .

    Happy Birthday

    I don't understand Sam.

    He didn't talk to Ed for 16 years, and now he acts like they were best buds. I know everything is airbrushed after death, but c'mon. If he meant that much to you and miss him that much, maybe reach out to him before he's on his deathbed.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Yeah It wasn't like Sam didn't think about Ed pretty much every day...you know he did. But I think we all are guilty of thinking there will always be time....until there is no time.
