"I'm just a guitarist in a kick-ass rock and roll band. What more could I ask for?" -- Eddie Van Halen
Ohio State Marching Band Performs Van Halen Halftime Show

To honor the late, great Eddie Van Halen, this is a video of the Buckeyes’ Spring Athletic Band performing a medley of Van Halen songs during a halftime show on April 16th. The medley includes “Runnin’ With the Devil,” “Dreams,” “Panama,” and “Jump,” all performed while the band forms synchronized shapes and words. Pretty cool. Still, I wouldn’t have complained if they incorporated a fireworks display into the act as well. You can never go wrong with fireworks — that’s my motto. “What’s up with the eyepatch?” Well mottos don’t have to be true, you know.
