“Guess who stopped in to rehearsal yesterday! Perfect way to start a tour. Eddie Van Halen just gave Pearl his blessing to go out and kick some fucking ass. And he signed my 5150III.”
Scott Ian of the band Anthrax is also in Pearl, a band with his wife, Pearl Aday, daughter of famed singer Meat Loaf.
Scott Ian gave the following contribution for Neil Zlozower’s coffee table photo book, Van Halen: A Visual History, 1978-1984:
“Junior High lunch room, 1978.

He had cued up “Eruption” and I sat there hypnotized by a sound I had never heard before. All I could muster after the track ended was a weak, “How did he do that?” I’m still wondering”
