    Living a HARD life when young! Leads to an even harder life when old. IMO.

    That's too bad, didn't know that. I'll say a prayer for Eddie and Valerie. Thanks for letting us know.

    The first time I saw Van Halen they were opening for Black Sabbath. It was around August '78. I even wrote a review for my high school newspaper. They rocked.

    Yep it is. Some cool recent pics & a video on the Van Halen page on Facebook. Eddies had a tough year but looks to be ok. David Lee Roth anounced he’s going on the road in 2020 with KISS. He said the band was done.

    One of my all time favorite bands, even during the VanHagar days. Saw them in '79 then again 10 years ago when my daughter surprised me with tickets to them for my 50th birthday.

    I saw them Labor Day, 1978. Same tour. Hampton Roads Colosseum, VA. Van Halen led off, but was every bit as good as Sabbath.
