What did Henry learn from Eddie:

It’s always amazing to research the personality of someone you admire. It turns out he’s very complex and very simple at the same time, which I found to be unique.


Who is Eddie Van Halen:

Besides being a brilliant rock guitar player and founder of Van Halen, he was my high school crush.

Special Notes

This was the first time I have met Henry Phillips. My boyfriend and I were in a theatre company over 20 years with his mother Linda. One night there was a weird blip in the universe and my boyfriend sort of saved his life. So, I told him my boyfriend saved his life and he should do the Woo Woo. He agreed and we have Eddie Van Halen.
