A Tribute to Eddie Van Halen on the Friday LeBrain Train

The LeBrain Train – 2000 Words or More with Mike Ladano
Episode 31

Shitty week, huh?  That’s why I’m here — to help you deal with the bad stuff, and leave feeling better at the end.  This week we are here to grieve, to mourn, and also to pay tribute to the greatest guitar player who ever lived:  Edward Van Halen.

We’re forgoing the list format, and just talking about what Eddie and his music meant to us personally.  Expect the usual suspects on the panel, and please post your comments so we can see what you have to say about King Edward.  Together we’ll process this horrible loss, and by the end we’ll feel a little better.  Van Halen meant a lot to me.  They were one of the first bands I ever liked.  We’ll talk about that and lots more.

For best results, view on YouTube.  Facebook is notoriously stoppy-starty.  For those who tune in early (before the official 7:00 PM start), there will be three unboxings to enjoy.

      1. Agreed on that. I really live the live version. I have a 2 CD bootleg called In Concert with this version and a few others from Live Without a Net. Great stuff and Eddie is underrated as a keyboard player.

  1. I was talking about him with some colleagues this week, remarking on what a solid piano/keyboard player he was (in addition to his ridiculous guitar skills).
    And hope for the future — one student in the guitar class asked if we could play a VH song using the speakers as a tribute, and so we enjoyed listening in awe to the 1:42 of Eruption as a class!
