Rockstars seem to find ways to hit headlines in some of the wildest ways. The bands of the 80’s seemed to really take things to the next level, and one of the bands leading the way was Van Halen and their frontman, Eddie Van Halen.  Eddie’s incredible talent on the guitar made him a legend to anyone who was reading Guitar World in the 90’s, but as you could imagine there were wild times to go along.   Was the debauchery described in their tours as real as they say?  Was Eddie nightclub guy or more of a recluse?  Are we really sure that Eddie understood how reproduction worked?  We’ll dive into these questions and more in this episode of AHC Podcast.
