Eddie Van Halen has been struggling with alcohol for a very long time. Since the days of Van Halen.

Which means a very verrrry long time.

He claims he developed "the whole alcoholism thing" when he asked his dad what he can do to fight off nerves when playing guitar up on stage in front of people.

His father gave him a shot of vodka and a cigarette to ease his nerves.

Great parenting. (Sarcasm.)

This was the first step down the road of lifelong alcoholism.

There are better ways to overcome nerves.

Meditation, yoga, deep breathing exercises and avoiding caffeine at all costs.

Caffeine is basically nervousness in a can.

The smart person learns from their own mistakes; the wise person learns from the mistakes of others.

Learn from Eddie's mistakes.
