On this week’s Jersey Rock Weekly Podcast we honor the life of Eddie Van Halen by rocking Van Halen-inspired music.

We kick things off with a Van Halen covers medley from young rockers! It includes:

Costa Maitoglou from So Far Under doing “You Really Got Me”




Nick Marrotta covering “Panama”




Pierce Akers of Slaves To Humanity rocking “Eruption”




Kodiak performing “Panama” live at the Chance Theater in NY!



Legendary Rock photographer Mark Weiss calls in to tell us about his first time photographing Eddie Van Halen at Convention Hall in Asbury Park back in 1979.  His book “The Decade That Rocked” includes pictures from that shoot along with a number of great Van Halen images.  “The Decade That Rocked” exhibit runs now through 11/1 at the Monmouth Museum at Brookdale Community College.  Mark Weiss will be there every Friday from 2pm to 5pm to sign copies of his book.
