    Default If you could've asked Eddie ONE question...

    If you could've asked Eddie ONE single, straight question...no follow up to it, no 2nd question, just a one and only straight question, what would it have been?

    Mine would've been: "What did you do with your Frankenstein overalls?"
    June. 1984. Kemper Arena. Kansas City, Mo. My very first concert. The lights go out. The spotlights rotate over the crowd while a wailing guitar overtakes the screams and cheers. The opening riff of "Unchained" begins as a lone spotlight illuminates Eddie Van Halen. By himself. I was never the same after that.

    Same thing I asked David Lee Roth…”How does it feel to know you were the soundtrack to a generation?”

    Really though...

    Wolf can fucking sing... what are/were the chances of the 3 Van Halen's carrying on as a three piece playing all new originals and selected cuts from the catalog that were doable?

    When you came up with the Unchained riff, did you say "Holy Shit"?

    I would ask, “Which one of your songs are you most proud of from a guitar playing standpoint?”

    We spoke for about 30 mins at a hotel bar in NYC, he was not the frenetic Diamond Dave, he was very laid back, intelligent, and just cool.
