From The Salt Lake Tribune:
Esquire magazine has turned 80 and to celebrate the anniversary, the magazine set out to create a portfolio called “The Life of Man,” 80 original photographs of actors, sports icons, musicians, politicians, and presidents, ages 80 to one.
The list of musicians featured in the portrait include Eddie Van Halen (58), Willie Nelson (80), Tim McGraw (46), Blake Shelton (37), Dr. Dre (48), Jason Derulo (24), Greyson Chance (16) and Ethan Bortnick (13). Each were asked a question or two.
Eddie Van Halen’s best advice – “Was from my father at an early age when we were making music. I would make mistakes, and I would ask, ‘What do you do?’ And he’d say, in Dutch, ‘Gewoon door blijven gaan,’ which means ‘Don’t stop and don’t let the audience know you made a mistake.’ “
What Eddie Van Halen is most looking forward to: “Waking up every morning with my wife and our little dog and cat.”
Here’s a a Video of Eddie giving his best advice:
