Eddie Van Halen Gives Guitars To LA-Area Schools

09:01 AM Friday 1/13/12 | |

Rocker Eddie Van Halen has donated 75 electric guitars to Los Angeles-area high schools as a way to inspire music in kids.

Tricia Steel of the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation says the Van Halen lead-guitarist came with the brand-new guitars this week, saying he wanted them used in schools and not sold.

The non-profit Los Angeles foundation has distributed the guitars to seven schools serving mostly low-income students that needed them to replace broken instruments or build music enrollment.

Schools were not told where the guitars came from until they arrived, and then they were advised to keep them under tight lock and key.

    Classy move Eddie.  I'm looking forward to the tour and hearing some classic VH.  $100 a ticket is about the going rate for a good concert these days and no one gives a damn about the opening bands anyway.  I wish they still had Michael Anthony but they still will put on a solid show.

    EVH should be ashamed for this upcoming tour.   No Michael Anthony and Kool and the Gang as the opening band?    At $100 per ticket, I will pass.
