Eddie Van Halen, Slash – Let The Law Decide
The debate over who plays guitar best will never end, but for a couple in Ohio, it ended temporarily when they wound up in jail.
The boyfriend and girlfriend were staying in a Motel 6 in Brook Park, Ohio when they got into a heated debate over who is a better player, Eddie Van Halen or Slash. The argument escalated to the point where the front office called the cops, who then hauled the couple in — not for arguing, but because officers discovered they had outstanding warrants in other cities. By the way, the girl said Eddie was better, and the guy was in favor of Slash.
Van Halen have just been announced as one of the headliners of the Stone Music Festival in Sydney, Australia in April. They were supposed to play Australia last year, but that show was canceled. This will be their first-ever show Down Under with David Lee Roth.
