Eddie Van Halen Gives Back To The Kids 

By Aaron

Arts education is usually one of the first things to be cut from the budget of struggling schools, so classic rock icon Eddie Van Halen has decided to lend a helping hand.

The guitar god donated 75 guitars from his personal collection to the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation. That’s the program that provides musical instruments to students in low-income schools.

Eddie says learning music has had a huge impact on him,

“My whole life has been music.  I could not imagine anything else.  It’s a must.  It has to be taught.”
