A fan at a Tool gig got Eddie Van Halen to take his photo – and probably wishes he got a selfie

We’ve all done it...

A fan attending a Tool gig has sparked amusement online by asking Eddie Van Halen to take his photo – seemingly without realising that he’s one of the most famous guitarists on the planet.

The moment, which happened at Tools recent LA show in support of the long-awaited Fear Inoculum, was shared by Eddie Van Halen’s son, Wolfgang, on twitter:



This comes after the news that Eddie Van Halen underwent surgery for throat cancer, which reportedly has been successful in keeping “the disease in check.”

Rumours of a Van Halen reunion have also been recently put to rest by David Lee Roth, when he said the band was “finished”.
