As a little boy, Eddie started classical piano lessons influenced by his father Jan Van Halen. In 1968, the Van Halen family relocated to California where Eddie had a job as a paperboy. He started playing the drums but when Eddie was out his brother Alex used the drum kit, and Eddie decided that Alex was better at drums than himself, so Eddie bought a guitar and started practicing with Eric Clapton music.
