Eddie Van Halen

Eddie Van Halen

Eddie Van Halen, the rock god. The beautiful thing about Eddie is the glowing smile that comes across his face when he plays, like he's having the best time of his life in that very moment.
What I saw of the show I loved, though frankly when you are working, which I was, it's hard to enjoy because you are stressfully working the camera, the variables, lighting, who's doing what and shooting like mad to make sure you get something good since you have hardly any time at all. It didn't help that the third song featured Eddie on a solo at the start with a very dim blue light on him and all I could do was groan and hope they kicked in quick. With a photo pass and the rules are strict. three songs and in this case-- from the soundboard-- substantial distance from the stage. So, we got escorted to our spots (me standing on a chair to see above the crowd) and then promptly at the end of the third song we were escorted back out to the backstage area. No ticket, no stay for show. Worth it all anyway to see living legends in action.
