Happy Birthday to Eddie Van Halen!

and to Jon Van B.


Guitar of Eddie Van HalenImage via Wikipedia1/26/55 is Ed's birthday!

Eddie Van Halen is one of my favorite guitarist of all time. I can't help but smile and feel good when I hear his distinctive sound. How do you describe his style? I am not good at describing it but I'd recognize it anywhere and am in awe of not only his talent but the joy he displays on stage when playing. How many lead guitarists SMILE throughout a show? Not many that I can think of. They are too busy looking cool :)

I wish Eddie a very happy 54th birthday.

ALSO....

I'd like to wish a happy birthday to my high school sweetheart who shares not only a birthday with Eddie, but also hails from The Netherlands.

Gelukkige Verjaardag, Jon, Ik houd van u nog!

Jess, he was until he was ravished by drugs. We dated for four years. He was a wonderful person.

Sad about the drugs...they seems to creep in everywhere. :(

I wish my hair was that long. :)

Answering your question over at my place, I do the Facebook thing, but it's only to keep up with the three girls.

I hope everything is OK. Hopefully, you'll be back to blogging on your other site when the time is right.

54, huh? Eddie looks older than that. I guess that's what such a lifestyle will do.

Eddie is the shiz =) Saw Van Halen in concert for the 1984 tour. That boy can play.
