Back then Eddie was stealing technique from Jerry Lee Lewis instead of Steve Hackett.

True as that may or may not be, Steve Hackett stole it from T-Bone Walker.

What's most surprising is that there is something called the "Van Halen News Desk".

As a drummer Alex Van Halen makes a damn good saxophonist.

Yup there is, it's a pretty comprehensive, non-biased, info site that has broken all the news about VH in recent years, and has a good relationship with the band.

Or maybe not.

The biggest mistake EVH ever made was being white and not dying in a pool of his vomit in 1984.

I'll bet it was before he started playing drums, though. The article implies their father played sax as well, and he also played clarinet on one of the songs from VH's Diver Down album. Must've been tons of musical instruments laying around in that household.

Funny that the two kids came up with a name like "Broken Combs" before they became a big hair band in the 70s.
