Van Halen Vs Zakk Wylde - A Top Story This Week
"The last of the four secret rehearsals by VAN HALEN took place last night [Sunday, September 16] in Los Angeles. Unlike the other shows where 40-50 people were there, this was a much bigger affair with about 500 friends of the crew and band. Some of the people in attendance were Tom Morello (RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE) METALLICA's Kirk Hammett and Zakk Wylde. About two songs into the show, Zakk — who was front row — tried to get onstage with Eddie [Van Halen].
The security were wrestling to pull him off and David Lee Roth came over and said, 'Nah, nah, nah. Are you in show biz? Then get off the stage. Get off the f***ing stage.' At that point Eddie came over and acknowledged Zakk, saying something to the effect of, 'Hey, man, I can't do this right now.' Throughout the show though Eddie was smiling at Zakk."- Some short comments on the performance and a video of the incident
