This year’s ShipRocked cruise featured an all-star tribute to Eddie Van Halen. Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, singer Michael Star of Steel Panther (formerly of the VH tribute The Atomic Punks), Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss and former Five Finger Death Punch lead guitarist Jason Hook all joined the all-star band The Stowaways to perform nine VH classics.
The Van Halen songs performed during the 12-song set were “Jump”, “Hot For Teacher”, “You’re No Good”, “Poundcake”, “Ice Cream Man”, “Right Now”, “Why Can’t This Be Love?”, “Unchained” and “Panama”. The entire set was uploaded to YouTube by Justin West and can be viewed above.
The ShipRocked 2022 cruise set sail from Galveston, Texas on January 22th, made stops in Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico before returning on January 27th.
