Eddie Van Halen...Dutch born Eddie van Halen relocated with his brother Alex and family to the U.S. in 1962. The grew up in Pasedena, California and showed an early aptitude for musi (Alex as a drummer and Edward as a guitarist). While still at high school, he formed the band originally known as Mammoth but subsequently re-christened Van Halen with singer David Lee Roth and bassist Mike Anthony. The band became a popular local attraction through a combination of loud and energetic heavy metal and Roth’s very tight trousers! Due to the inability to attract a record deal, they began promoting own gigs; using every possible attention-grabbing trick like parachuting into stadiums to upstage the headlining band.
