Ask Katy

Hi Katy. I have seen pictures of Eddie Van Halen and Andy Taylor and was wondering if they were pals in the 80s. Thanks , Andrew K

"No,I am not a friend of Eddie's, however when I was a younger man he was without a doubt the most influential young guitar player-across the board, not necessarily my favourite, but undoubtedly the most gifted. So it was a massive high to meet him & the rest of VanHalen about 20 years ago, in my opinion a proper rock and roll band...As for David Lee Roth, who could top that dude? Andy T."
