Rarely Seen Childhood Photos of Eddie Van Halen

The creator of the tapping technique, Dutch guitar virtuoso Eddie Van Halen, or literally Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, opened his eyes to the world on January 26, 1955. There is not much about the childhood years of the famous guitarist. The only thing known; he started music with the piano, got bored at the piano and quit the piano and started playing drums.

In February 1962, his family moved to the United States and settled in Pasadena, California. Eddie Van Halen continued playing drums for a while. His older brother, Alex Van Halen, was interested in guitar during these years. After a short while, the two brothers changed their instrument. Eddie Van Halen picked up the guitar to do great work. His brother Alex also took over the drums. The adventure was starting.

Eddie, who started playing the guitar at the age of 12, practiced 8-9 hours a day. It was getting better with each passing day. By the age of 14, he was able to play every single detail of Eric Clapton’s solos in the Cream group.

In 1974, the two brothers laid the foundations of the Van Halen group with the group Mammoth. They started playing in Pasadena, where they met David Lee Roth. The group started calling themselves Van Halen after discovering there was another group called Mammoth. For the next three years, they played in both club and hotel bars, in Pasadena, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles.
