Preston & Steve®

Weekdays 5:30am - 10:30am

When I got the text from Markus that Eddie Van Halen had died. I blinked and read it again. My head swirled like someone smacked me. After a few minutes, I drifted back in time…

Y’see this is one of my guys who’s kinda my age. A guy who was always super cool no matter how many people the label set up for backstage. The epitome of cool. Cancer didn’t stand a chance!

This picture was the first time I met the band. 5150 was on fire, 3 nights at The Spectrum and of course ‘MMR had the backstage passes!

Other shows here, including the Monsters Of Rock, or elsewhere (I showed up at a Cali show once) they always greeted me warmly.

Ed’s quiet belied his true persona…
