Ok, I admit that this is not directly guitar related, but it is tangentially related. After I purchased our Van Halen tickets earlier this month, my wife bought me the greatest pair of shoes I’ve ever owned for my birthday. She also bought herself a pair of flip flops to wear at the concert (it’s at an outdoor venue and will be in late summer).
They’re the official EVH shoes from the Van Halen Store. I wore them while playing live a couple of weeks ago. They’re not the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever had (although they aren’t uncomfortable), but hey, they’re Van Halen shoes so I’m not complaining. So now I guess I can “hit the ground runnin’.”
