This Tool Fan Unknowingly Asked Eddie Van Halen To Take A Picture For Him At Last Night’s Show


There’s been much speculation in the press about Van Halen‘s status and the current health of their guitarist Eddie Van Halen as of late. It seems that may have been news to the below Tool fan at last night’s (October 21st) Los Angeles, CA show though. Eddie and his son Wolfgang attended Tool‘s show at the Staples Center and were approached by a Tool fan, who asked Eddie to take a picture of the fan standing in front of the stage.

That is to say, it would appear that this fan was apparently completely oblivious to the fact that the man he just asked to take his picture is considered one of the greatest guitar gods alive. Such is the fervor around Van Halen as of late that TMZ even reported that Eddie was rumored to be attending the aforementioned concert beforehand.

Wolfgang amusingly captured the moment and commented of the interaction:

“A guy asked my dad if he could take a picture of him with the stage behind him, having no idea who he just asked, and that was my favorite moment from the #Tool show last night.”
