In 2019 The Metropolitan Museum of Art had an exhibit called “Play It Loud”.
Eddie Van Halen lent his guitar “Frankenstein” to the exhibit.
Below you can watch conversations with the 2 curators of the exhibit, Jayson Kerr Dobney from The Met and Craig Inciardi from The Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame.
We discuss the guitar and Eddie’s influences and his influence on others.
In one video Jimmy Page is mentioned for his influence on Eddie’s tapping.
Below you can see the clip where Eddie discusses that himself at The Smithsonian.
Also included below is the full Smithsonian interview.
