Video: Eddie Van Halen Guitar Solo at Rehearsal Gig in Los Angeles
Van Halen played a special "rehearsal" show last night at the Forum in Los Angeles to an invite-only crowd. Fan-filmed footage of Eddie Van Halen taking a guitar solo -- that features some big chunks of "Eruption" -- has made its way online, and we've got it below.
"Van Halen was killer tonight at the Forum," said Slash via his Twitter account. "Eddie was brilliant. So amazing to hear/watch."
The show comes less than two weeks from the start of Van Halen's North American tour in support of their new album, A Different Kind of Truth, which was released this past Tuesday.
We're still taking your reviews of Van Halen's new album. Head here to have your say!
The Eddie Van Halen Guitar World Box Set is a limited-edition package that includes all four Guitar World February 2009 issues, each of which has a unique cover photo featuring Eddie Van Halen with a different version of his new EVH Wolfgang guitar. It's available now at the Guitar World Online Store.
