Tribute to Eddie Van Halen

A few days ago, one of my guitar idols passed away.
Mr. Eddie Van Halen.

This video is a little homage to his legacy.
In this video Smash Mouth is playing the Van Halen version of “You Really Got Me” (originally by The Kinks).
This song is ALWAYS a blast to play on stage as you will see in the video.

It was also a special night because we were playing the Austin City Limits venue in Texas on the Under The Sun Tour
AND as you’ll see, we had some special guests:

* Additional Guitars – Miles Zuniga (Singer & Guitarist for Fastball)
* Chimp Cheerleader in tutu – Robin Wilson (Singer for Gin Blossoms)
* Drag Super Woman – Gin Blossoms’ Tour manager who’s name I cannot remember right now 😛

RIP Eddie
