ALWAYS REMEMBER TO DRY YOUR HANDS BEFORE SHAKING HANDS WITH EDDIE VAN HALEN
Eddie Van Halen rage stories are pretty legendary, but I’d thought that Mr. EVH had calmed down in recent years. Not so according to Shinedown singer Brent Smith, who toured with Van Hagar in 2004 and became chummy with the OG shredder before a little backstage incident set him off and re-ignited the raging dickitude of old. Good to know that the old man’s still got some vinegar (and piss) in ‘im.
The clip comes from MTV’s new self-described “dude blog” called Clutch in which the goal I suppose is to be a modern-day online Maxim full of stories about hot chicks, sports, and other silly dudebro shit. Like Shinedown or hate ’em (I happen to love ’em!), Brent Smith does an excellent job telling the story. I won’t ruin it for you.
