A highly revered member of the King blues guitar triumvirate (B.B., Freddie, and
Albert), Albert King differed significantly from his musical brethren. Though he named his
guitar Lucy (after Lucille Ball, not B.B.'s Lucille), that was where any similarities to B.B.
ended. In contrast with B.B. and Freddie, who preferred the more traditional look, feel, and
sound of semi-hollow Gibson ES-355s and ES-345s, Albert favored a modernistic solidbody
Flying V-which eminently suited his unconventional style. Where B.B. and Freddie
played right-handed in standard tuning, Albert was a southpaw who played his Flying V
upside-down without reversing the strings. Unlike his blues brothers-in-arms, he employed
an unusual open E minor tuning, usually dropped down three half steps, sometimes with
the low E (sixth) string dropped down to a low C note.
Albert's most famous Lucy was a 1958 Gibson Flying V. This is the instrument
heard on his classic Stax recordings. Announced in 1957 and phased out by 1959, the
original Flying V is one of the rarest and most collectable guitars in history. It features a
two-piece solid Korina hardwood body in a natural finish, gold-plated hardware, and a
twenty-two-fret unbound rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays and a 24 3/4-inch scale.
The unique visual aspects of the Flying V include its symmetrical V body shape, arrowlike
headstock with a raised gold-painted Gibson logo, four-ply angular pickguard and
round jack plate, and a V-shaped tailpiece with through-the-body stringing. The guitar was
equipped with two humbucking pickups, two individual volume controls, a master tone
control, and a three-way pickup selector switch. Albert acquired other Lucys, based on his
Gibson Flying V, including a custom-made 1974 model by Dan Erlewine and a 1980
model by Radley Prokopow.
Albert usually played Lucy with both pickups engaged. He generally turned the
bridge pickup volume all the way up and adjusted the neck pickup volume during his performance
for tonal variations. (He set the tone control on full.) Albert used a mixed set of
Black Diamond strings: light-gauge (with a wound G) on the first three strings, and medium-
gauge on the lower three strings.
Albert cultivated a unique blues guitar sound based almost exclusively on a
streamlined, largely pentatonic single-note conception and distinguished by his sharp,
percussive attack and bright, twangy tone. He plucked and pulled the strings with his bare
fingers, usually his thumb, and employed a strikingly economic approach emphasizing
vocalesque string bends, dramatic use of space, and short rhythmic phrases with few
notes. In Albert's hands, these ingredients produced an immediately recognizable and
highly influential style.

Worshipped by his legions of fans and despised by ex-band members, David Lee
Roth embodies everything that defines the rock star. Sure, he can sing; that's a given.
What makes him "Diamond Dave," however, is that he's incredibly charismatic, vainglorious
beyond belief, has tremendous stage presence, and is a self-promoting, marketing
genius. These are the magic ingredients that separate the extraordinary from the merely
pedestrian. Guitarist Steve Vai characterized Dave as "hysteria personified." Dave craves
the spotlight and, over the course of his career, has created a larger-than-life public persona.
For instance, as Dave was very "giving" of himself, he attempted to get paternity
insurance should he get hit up for child-support payments down the line. Dave can't seem
to separate his public image from his personal life. He's Diamond Dave 24/7, and this
intensity is what makes him the incredible entertainer that he is.
David Lee Roth was born on October 10, 1954, in Bloomington, Indiana, into an
upper-middle-class family (Dave's father was an ophthalmologist). As a child, he was
extremely hyperactive, and by age six he started seeing a shrink regularly. At around the
same time, the Roths moved east to Massachusetts, and Dave, being both a Jew and the
new kid on the block, was quickly ostracized. This alienation led to an inner-rage that still
drives Roth to this day. In his autobiography, Crazy From the Heat, he recalled, "Every
step I took on that stage was smashing some Jew-hating, lousy punk ever deeper into the
deck. Every step." As a loner, he found solace in reading and was particularly affected by
two magazines: Mad and Playboy. These magazines shaped the course of his development.
Another pivotal element in Roth's development was his uncle Manny's club, Cafe
Wha?, in New York City's Greenwich Village. As a kid, Roth hung out there fairly often and
was exposed to every facet of society. This eye-opening experience led to an appreciation
of cultural differences and played a strong part in cultivating Roth's flamboyant persona.
Eventually, the Roths settled in Pasadena, California. As a teen, Dave sang in the
Red Ball Jets (named after a sneaker), an R&B-influenced outfit that played the backyardparty
circuit. It was at a party that Dave first heard Eddie Van Halen, who was then guitarist
and singer for Mammoth, wailin' away on some Black Sabbath covers. Dave was
blown away-"What he does with his hands I wanna do with my feet, with my voice." Roth
would later join Mammoth, and after a simple yet brilliant renaming, Van Halen was born.
Van Halen developed a huge following and conquered the local scene by packing
every gig. It was soon time for greener pastures, and in 1974 Van Halen headed to
Hollywood. It was in Tinseltown that things started to happen. The band secured a residency
at Gazarri's and made its presence known. The next turning point was playing the
Golden West Ballroom with UFO. Prior to this gig, Van Halen's set contained a mixture of
covers and originals; this was the band's first all-original set. The band wowed the audience,
and the generated buzz paved the way for gigs at the Whisky-a-Go-Go and the
Starwood-two essential places for aspiring rock bands to play. It was at the Starwood
that KISS bass player and entrepreneur Gene Simmons heard Van Halen. He immediately
saw the potential and proposed a deal whereby he would produce the band's demo and
shop it to the major labels. If no one bit, the band was free to walk. Van Halen jumped at
the offer, and Simmons flew the band to New York to record. Shockingly, not a single
record label expressed any interest. In hindsight, David Lee Roth suspected that
Simmons was surreptitiously trying to poach Eddie Van Halen.
It was later, in the hands of their first manager, Marshall Berle (actor Vincent
Berle's nephew), that the pieces would come together. He managed to get Warner
Brothers president Mo Ostin and producer Ted Templeman to a Van Halen show at the
Starwood. The band was signed immediately, and on February 10, 1978, Van Halen was

Eddie Van Halen is the king of modern rock guitar, considered by many to be the
greatest rock guitarist ever. He was born Edward Loedwijk Van Halen on January 26,
1957, in Nijmegen, just outside of Amsterdam, Holland, to a Dutch father, Jan, and an
Indonesian mother, Eugenia. In the early '60s, the Van Halens immigrated to sunny
Pasadena, California, with only $25 and a piano (Alex Van Halen claims that both he and
Eddie played piano on the boat to pay for their passage). It was in their early childhood
that the seeds for Van Halen, the band, were planted. Their father was a professional
musician and made both of the boys take piano lessons (later on down the line, Jan would
play clarinet on "Big Bad Bill (Is Sweet William Now)" from Van Halen's fifth album, Diver
Down). Eddie, in particular, was highly accomplished at the piano and placed first several
times at annual piano tournaments.
During their first few school years, Eddie and Alex, because of their language barrier,
kept mainly to themselves and developed a life-long, impenetrable bond. While still in
grade school, they formed their first band called the Broken Combs; Eddie played piano,
Alex played sax, and they wrote well-titled pieces such as "Boogie Booger" and "Rumpus."
At around age twelve, Eddie heard "Wipe Out" and bought a $125 St. George drum set,
while Alex picked up a flamenco guitar. To pay for the drum set, Eddie took on a paper
route. As Eddie rode around the neighborhood delivering newspapers, Alex banged away
on Eddie's set. Alex got pretty good at the drums so they decided to swap instruments.
Eddie subsequently bought a cheapo four-pickup Teisco Del Ray guitar from Sears. The
high school years saw the Van Halen brothers in various bands. First came The Trojan
Rubber Company and then Genesis, which was renamed Mammoth after the guys found
out about the pre-existence of English prog-rockers, Genesis. In Mammoth, Eddie handled
not only the guitar duties but the lead vocals as well.
The Van Halen brothers first met David Lee Roth when Mammoth went up against
Roth's band at the time, the Red Ball Jets, in a battle of the bands at Hamilton Park in
Pasadena. Mammoth would later wind up renting Roth's PA for gigs because they didn't
own one. Eventually, Eddie stepped down from the lead vocal role and, in a sheer bit of
brilliant opportunism, offered Roth the gig. Roth accepted, and the band gained a charismatic
lead singer, plus free use of his PA.The band was then renamed Van Halen.
Michael Sobolewski (a.k.a. Michael Anthony) lucked his way into the Van Halen
gig. At a Pasadena High School concert, both Van Halen and Snake, Anthony's band at
the time, were on the bill. The PA broke down, and Van Halen was out of luck. Anthony
stepped in and offered the use of his PA.Van Halen used it and was not only won over by
Anthony's generosity but also impressed by his bass playing. Shortly thereafter, original
bassist Mark Stone got the boot, and Michael Anthony became a core member.
In late 1983, everything came together for Eddie and the band. At the request of
music impresario Quincy Jones, Eddie played a killer guitar solo (for free) on Michael
Jackson's pop mega-hit "Beat It" from Jackson's album Thriller. This album was #1 on the
Billboard charts for 37 weeks and, ultimately, became the best-selling album of all time.
At around the same time, Van Halen's 1984 album, an absolute masterpiece with three
heavily rotated MTV videos, went from Gold to Platinum to Multi-platinum to, ultimately,
Diamond status (ten million copies sold). The band was on top of the world. Then, suddenly,
on April 1, 1985 (April Fool's Day), Roth pulled the plug and walked away from Van
Halen to pursue a solo career. Van Halen had recorded six albums with David Lee Roth
and become the most important rock band of the '80s, achieving legendary status; however,
at the height of their career, the party was over.
David Lee Roth pursued a solo career and Van Halen enlisted Sammy "Red
Rocker" Hagar-who Eddie got in touch with through a mutual acquaintance, their
mechanic, Claudio-to continue the Van Halen legacy. After five albums, including a live
album, Live: Right Here, Right Now, Hagar and Van Halen parted ways; their split was...
