Van Halen is one of the greatest rock bands of all time. If you don’t know who they are: Search their videos, watch them, listen, and be amused.
This band redefined the term of shredding and awesome rock and roll. Many other modern rock bands today should bow down to Eddie Van Halen because of his awesome guitar solos and compositions, they really made rock n roll rise up to the stars.
However, did you know that Eddie Van Halen (one of the most amazing guitar players ever) initially bought a drum set instead of a guitar?
Eddie Van Halen actually started out playing the drums! He bought a drum set and his brother bought a guitar. When his brother got better at the drum than him Eddie just said “OK, **** you, I’ll play you guitar”.
He later realized that he was born for making guitars talk and express themselves through beautiful melodies!And that’s just how he became one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Long live rock n roll!
