    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

    I always have pursued the best possible sound, which drove me every single day, every single album, and every single tour to be on top of my game,” comments Alex. “I hope that passing on all these pieces will inspire current and next generations to be the best they can be. Now, let’s have some fun – Van Halen style!”

    "Saddle" his kids??!?

    These are the things that paid for the very affluent lifestyle they enjoy. I'm sure they could bear the huge "inconvenience" of having to keep those somewhere. Like next to their Porsches, for example.

    vintage early 1980s Wurlitzer console piano that was owned by the Van Halen family. It was mostly used by Eugenia Van Halen, the matriarch of the family. However, on occasion, Alex and Eddie Van Halen - gifted pianists in their own right - both would enjoy their time behind this instrument while visiting the family home.

    The piano is a model 2745 (serial number of 1804256) and has been outfitted with the Superscope Pianocorder reproducing system under the keyboard, effectively turning the console into a player piano through the use of special prerecorded cassettes. The Pianocorder system first came into use in 1978. The Wurlitzer itself measures approximately 57 inches by 24 inches by 43 inches tall and is in very good condition with common signs of wear, use, aging, and storage. The kickboard has a stain on it and there are slight scuffs to the key slip. The left knob on the fall board is broken. The piano also includes a storage bench measuring approximately 25 inches by 14 inches by 22 1/2 inches tall. This bench is in good condition and has scratches and marks throughout. The hinges to the lift up storage are bent and broken.

    Please note that the shipping of this piano will require the services of a specialty carrier. Buyers are welcome to arrange their own transportation or schedule a pick-up from our location in Houston, Texas.

    Obviously, they don't want this stuff, hence the auction

    An absolutely stunning black and copper drum kit that was exclusively designed to be the next kit for Alex Van Halen, to be used on the 2017 - 2018 Van Halen Tour. This kit was in the process of being ordered and built but was not completed.

    This is depressing. I guess that tour was a lot closer to happening then not. Don't want to derail this thread but I still don't think Dave would do a tour with Sam.

    If I recall correctly, the 2017-2018 tour would've been a CVH tour. The 2019-2020 tour would've been the kitchen sink tour, with both Sam and Dave, needing a miraculous recovery of Ed and no COVID outbreak.
