Whoa. Where am I? Better yet, who am I?
Oh yeah. I'm guitar god, Eddie Van Halen.

Who do I have to give an autograph to for a bottle of Jack over here?
Cool. I'm in a hotel. I'll call room service.

Wednesday June 23rd 10:43 AM

Called room service. My bottle of Jack is on the way. I hope the bell boy doesn't mind bringing it to my bed. After all, guitar gods do not get out of bed for s***.

Wednesday June 23rd 10:46 AM

That was the best bottle of Jack I have ever had a bell boy pour into my mouth for me. Well, there was that time in Las Vegas...but that doesn't count because that was a long time ago and I was just a guitar demigod then. Now I am a full-on guitar god.

I had breakfast and played some guitar...uh, excuse me--I shredded. I just realized that sometimes I can't even see my own fingers cuz they move so quickly. Which comes incredibly handy when I need to pick my nose in public. I haven't been caught yet! I watched some MTV while I had my breakfast and I saw this video for this guy named Usher. I tell ya, this s*** looks mighty silly with the "oh yeahs" and "what's"--just plain stoopid. I remember playing that guitar solo for Michael Jackson during "Thriller." Now, that was the real s***. And that was back when I was just a guitar son-of-god. Geez, why's he gotta play with the children? I keep tellin' him, Mike, I said, you're like the richest guy in the world who is not a guitar god. Why not just pay really hot chicks to hang with you? That's what Sammy Hagar does. HA HA! I just zinged Sammy! I sure hope they don't publish this after I die and Sammy reads it and says, man, Eddie, that is so uncool.

Maybe it wasn't so nice to name my son "Wolfgang..."

People ask me all the time, Eddie, how does it feel to be a guitar god? And I finally have an answer; it feels like being god but just a god of the guitar. Ya' know what I mean? I can't like change the weather but I can reign--that, my friend, was good one.

We go on stage in just a few hours. It's so amazing to be back on the road playing arenas. I just got a call from Dave and he wished me luck which was really nice. At least, I think he wished me luck. I couldn't really understand what he was saying. It took me like five minutes to even realize it was Roth. Do I miss touring with him? Well, does Milli miss touring with Vanilli? I'm thinking he does. But maybe that's not such a good example because Milli was and will never be a guitar god. I, on the other hand, am. But back to Dave: sounding more like Cubic Zirconium nowadays. Not the Diamond of the yesteryear. So sad how that happens. If it wasn't like gay, I would offer him a hug. He sounds like he could use one. A hug from a guitar god is a gift from the rock star heavens. Like a Dido song if Dido songs were cool

I had no idea that watching the pimping of a ride could be so fun. Idea for next MTV show: Pimp My Guitar with host guitar god, Edward Van Halen. Which reminds me, I've been meaning to get a Playstation 2 console built into my guitar. Because that seems like the most practical thing to do right now. Oh, and I must have something to check my email. People always busting my f***in' chops because I'm not writing back. Now, I'll just email 'em while I'm soloing during "When It's Love."

Wednesday June 23rd 5:31 PM

Just hung out with Alex for a pre-show dinner. How cool is that--that I get to tour with my brother, the best drummer in the world? Dare I say that he is a drum god? Possibly. Have to check with Neil Peart first to see if the title is still available. I've been thinking that I would love to meet Steve Guttenberg. I'm not sure why. Just feel like I need to.

Sound check went well. Now, I'm watching a repeat of "One Day At A Time." Schneider is a total character. I miss Valerie. I wonder if she misses being Mrs. Guitar God. This may be the last post I write before I go on stage tonight. Which is cool because being on stage absolutely rocks hard.

Wednesday June 23rd 7:22 PM

Note to self: You are a guitar god. You are a guitar god. You are a guitar god. You are a guitar god. You are a guitar god. You are a guitar god. You are a guitar god. You are a guitar god.

Wednesday June 23rd 7:53 PM

Pssst. Eddie, you are a guitar god. RAWK!
