Though Eddie and Alex Van Halen are very, very generous autograph signers
(most of the time, Eddie), it seems that every time there was a Van Halen media style event,
it took place during the early part of the day when I could not attend. Thus, I missed
so many gravy opportunities to increase their signatures in my museum. That said, I am
so happy to have seen them in so many concerts since the 1980’s, in all incarnations
of this crazy band, and the signatures obtained that you see below.
I thank Eddie, Alex, Mike, Sammy, David and Gary.
Unless otherwise specifically stated, it would be almost impossible for me to go back and research when and where every signature by
these 6 members of the band were signed.
Van Halen is some of the first, and earliest signatures
I every started collecting and obtained.
From about 1986 – 1990, Van Halen members appeared as much as anyone at Rockline and at KLOS radio. During that time it was a gravy train of both opportunity and signatures. Each member was signing everything and (almost) anything that was handed to them.
The May 11, 1998 visit to Rockline was the only time (to the best of my memory) that Gary Cherone while being part of the band and was with them. Thus, I obtained the B&W 8X10 you see on this page.
