Great to hear that about Eddie! It always made me sad that such a brilliant guitarist had so many problems.

It will be interesting to hear how the new cd sounds. I’m going to the Toronto show (and maybe others). Apparently the cd launch show in NYC was excellent. Here’s a quote from one of many positive reviews: "Eddie van Halen looked GREAT and sounded f************g brilliant. His guitar tone was amazing, and he smiling the whole night. Long gone was the miserable musician savaged by alcohol abuse. Here was a revitalized virtuoso, looking healthy... hitting each chord brilliantly. There was a fire in Eds’ eye not seen almost 30 years. Van Halen was back! Eddie was reborn!!!"
