Eddie Van Halen Famous band guitarist Eddie Van Halen is up in the news these days for multiple reasons. He is marrying again, wants to revive her guitar skills and most importantly is taking the shoe company Nike to the court. He has filed a case against Nike, who he alleges has stolen the design of his famous Frankestein guiter in their NYX Dunk Low Premium athletic sneakers. Nike however has denied Halen’s claim.

Halen has had quite an eventful life from the time he had emerged as a popular guitarist of rock bands Hogar, Roth and later his own band named Van Halen. His popularity soared in the 1970s, but other major events like his struggle with throat and mouth cancer, his stay and consequent return from a rehabilitation centre due to heavy boozing, and his divorce from wife Valerie Bertinelli, has taken a toll on his popularity as a guitarist in the recent years. It reduced him to the status of a tabloid news fodder.

Recently, he is in news once more,but for good reasons. He wants to get back to his old glorious days and is working hard to re-learn guitar. He adds, “sobriety makes it tougher to master guitar.” He is also thinking to start a new life with Janie Liszewski who is his band’s publicist. His present preoccupations includes designing his guitars. Since he is believed to be the best guitarist in the 21st century, he wants to reach up to the expectation of his fans and deliver something more than his evergreen classics like “Jump” and “Aint talking ‘Bout Love”
