Tool Fan Asks Eddie Van Halen To Take His Photo


A Tool fan is getting called out on social media after he asked Eddie Van Halen to take his picture.

The 64-year-old rock guitarist and son Wolfgang, 28, were at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday night to catch a show on Tool’s tour in support of Fear Inoculum.

“A guy asked my dad if he could take a picture of him with the stage behind him, having no idea who he just asked,” Wolfgang shared on Instagram, along with a pic showing Eddie dutifully snapping the photo.

"And that was my favourite moment from the #Tool show last night.”

Fans are loving that the Tool fan didn’t seem to realize who was holding his phone.

“To be fair the guy looks f**king stoned outta his mind!,” commented one. Another wrote: “It’s like asking Oprah to watch your bike while you run into the store to buy a Red Bull.”

One fan opined: "Your father was probably waiting for this day since 1978... to go unrecognized in public again."

Of course, many fans simply expressed happiness at seeing that Eddie was out and about. According to reports, the musician has been battling cancer that spread from his tongue to his esophagus.
