    Wow...that was fast. I talked to the reporter in January. Pretty crazy! This is the first time Iíve seen it! She got a bunch of things that I said wrong and had a million grammar errors, but still kindíve cool!

    Thanks very much guys! Iím glad the reporter mentioned Matt who did the engraving and the heavy lifting of making sense of my TAB, but Iím not happy that she completely neglected to mention my friend Bill and Mark & Troy. These guys werenít contributors, they were collaborators who were at least as important as me to making the piece what it is. I kept repeating their names and I made it absolutely clear that they had to be mentioned, but for some reason that just didnít happen. They did a whole photo shoot with me and my black and white Frankenstein and my white Destroyer and they ended up not using any of the resulting pictures! What the hell?!

    Iíve read the piece over and Iím like ďWho did this chick talk to?!Ē...so much of it is jus stuff I never said! I guess real celebrities have had to deal with journalists screwing things up like this all the time...silly, but oh well. Still kindíve neat to see I suppose!

    Congratulations Allen. That's awesome

    You should be proud mate.
    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

    Thanks very much! If it werenít for all the people like you and others that Iíve met here who really give a damn about this kind of stuff I would still be fumbling in the dark.

    There are so many jerk-offs and trolls that come at me with knives out online, but those few people that are smart and really into the music have taught me so much that it vastly outweighs the morons and makes everything worthwhile!

    Thatís the crazy thing...I didnít! The reporter screwed all kinds of things up. I lived in Santa Monica for a little over 9 months from late 1982 through mid to late 1983. I told her all the many places I lived, where I was born, the whole thing. Somehow she (just for shorthand?) put down that I did all of my growing up ďnearĒ Santa Monica...in fact I lived IN Santa Monica for about 9 months. I told her this in the context of the rather odd coincidence that Ed passed away at St. Johnís Hospital which was literally three doors down from the house my Mom and I lived in during that brief period from 1982-1983. Just crazy!

    I was born in Lafayette, LA...my parents divorced when I was 4. My Mom and me moved to a small town called Ville Platte, LA, then to a tiny town on the California-Oregon border called French Gulch for about a year, then Ashland, OR for about 6 months, then Alamogordo, NM for about 3 years, then Santa Fe, NM for a little over a year, then Santa Monica for about 9 months, then Garland, TX (near D/FW) for a few months, then North Houston for about 3 months, then Irving, TX for about 6 months, then San Marcos, TX for about 3 years until my Mom and I settled in Houston in November of 1986 where I started my second semester of my Freshman year of high school from where I ultimately graduated.

    I told her all this but I guess for the sake of brevity, she made the outrageous claim that I ďgrew up NEAR Santa Monica, CAĒ...wow!

    This is cool, and well deserved.
    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!
