A national title would really help Van Halen make a name for himself. Although, he’s done a pretty good job of that already.

Van Halen comes from a famous family in music. His father, Alex, and uncle, Eddie, started the rock ‘n’ roll band Van Halen in the early 1970s. Alex is well known for his skill on the drums and Eddie is considered by some to be the best guitarist of all time. Aric’s cousin, Wolfgang, joined the band as its bassist in 2006.

Aric, who graduated last week with a degree in film studies, admits his father’s band is one of his favorites, but said, “I don’t really publicize it. I wouldn’t wear a shirt with my own name on it.”

Despite the musical roots in the family, Aric has always done his own thing. He tried playing the violin, saxophone and piano as a youth, but said, “Nothing really stuck.”

Instead, Aric spent his childhood playing sports. He was a baseball player for years before realizing he had a better future in track and field. At Oakwood (Calif.) High School, he won a state title in cross country and set four school records in track and field.

I’ve always wondered if Aric had any musical interests


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

A degree in film studies…. Maybe Aric will be the one who does a documentary of the mighty VH. Kind of like what Jack Osbourne has done…

He would definitely have access to the vault.

You come from a famous family. Can you tell us about it? Does having a famous name affect your life much?

My dad is the drummer of the rock ’n’ roll band Van Halen. The music gene skipped me. My teammates like to laugh at me when I’m asked about it at the airport. Someone will look at my ticket and say, ‘Oh, Van Halen, that’s really neat.’ I always get it at the airport, and everyone on the team laughs.

I don’t know if he still lives there. I think he does, but Alex lives about 10 minutes from me. My girlfriends mom used to live just down the street from him. A couple of times, I’ve seen Alex cruising around town in his Porsche. Now…………I think he drives a sporty Oudi. Don’t know the exact model of the car, but I’ve seen it. He lives in the same development Ozzy used to live in, as well as Nikki Sixx and unfortunately the Kardashians. God I hate that family. A bunch of actors and actresses live there as well. For those of you who read Nikki Sixx’ book “The Heroin Diaries,” u know which development I’m referring to.

That Audi sports car is a bad-ass machine.
