The Van Halens and their Asian side
I'm going to see Van Halen play here in DC on Wednesday. I'm not a huge fan, but it'll be interesting to see a guitar virtuoso in Eddie since I play guitar as well, although I'm more about songwriting than flashy technical abilities. A college buddy of mine, who is a big Van Halen fan, is coming in from the west coast so we can catch the show. Awhile back, he sent me this link to a VH fan site and I found an interview with the Van Halen brothers, done by David Lee Roth, that talked a little about their Asian side. This was the first time I have ever heard either one of them talk in depth about their mom, who I believe was half Indonesian, half Dutch.
