Eddie Van Halen To Talk Innovation At Smithsonian Event
01/28/2015

(HPM) Eddie Van Halen has announced that he will be speaking at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and Zócalo Public Square on February 12th and the event will be broadcast online.

Van Halen will be discussing innovation as part of the national “What It Means to Be American” program. His camp sent over these details about the event: The Dutch immigrant and naturalized U.S. citizen will discuss his American journey, his role in creating one of the biggest American rock bands of all time, how he has reinvented the way the guitar is played and designed, and he will answer the question, “Is rock ‘n’ roll about reinvention?” Entertainment journalist Denise Quan will moderate the sold-out event.

Best known as the lead guitarist and co-founder of Van Halen, Eddie Van Halen is recognized for his innovative performance and recording styles, two-hand tapping, scorching solos and energetic concerts. Van Halen has invented guitar technology, technique and instruments that have redefined how the guitar is played and heard.

For the event Van Halen and Fender will donate a master-built replica of Van Halen’s infamous white-with-black-stripe Stratocaster. This is the guitar that changed the guitar world in 1978 when Van Halen cross-pollinated Gibson electronics with Fender body and neck designs. To represent the path of progressions in his instrument designs, a Stealth finished EVH Brand Wolfgang will also be included to represent his modern-day workhorse.

In addition to the guitars, Van Halen and Fender Musical Instruments Corp. will also donate an EVH Brand 5150-III amplifier and speaker cabinet to embody the journey and progression of his amplifier designs from the early ’70s through the modern day.

The Feb. 12 event is sold-out, and no public tickets are available. The event video may be accessed Feb. 13 here.

I’m really curious how Eddie will come off in this thing. IMO he can sound awfully arrogant sometimes (probably not his intention, but still), so I’m wondering how his answer to “is rock-n-roll about reinvention” will come across. This should be very interesting – will he be nervous and get silly or swear a lot? Or will he be a consummate professional with clearly thought-out, detailed and informative reflections and answers? This kind of forum doesn’t seem “up his alley” by any means, but I’m really rooting for him to knock it out of the park.
