Band Mates:
Alex Van Halen,Michael Anthony

The Music:
Some say that David Lee Roth was center stage, but MANY argue that the spotlight belonged to Eddie Van Halen. With his charming looks and out-of-this world guitar licks, who cared if he didn't lick the microphone and had golden locks. Eddie was one fellow that was hard to ignore.
Little brother to Alex Van Halen, Eddie and their friend Michael Anthony began as The Broken Combs. They soon persuade Mr. Roth to join and they also soon change their name to Mammoth, then after considering the name Rat Salade, David Lee Roth suggested a simple: Van Halen. They all agreed. They first got their big break when Gene Simmons from KISS saw them in one of their club performances. He was astounded by the talent and their energy. Van Halen entered the studio and recorded their self-titled debut in 1978, and the rest as they say... is history.
