This is not Eddies dad. Eddies dad was Jan Van Halen, not Roy Smeck.

Author Michael Morrison (2 months)
The Van Halen family didn't move to the states until 1962. This is
obviously much earlier than that. I'd say this video is from the late 20's
or early 30's. Jan Van Halen was born in 1920. It's not him.

Why does everybody insist on referencing Eddie fucking van halen with all
these Roy smeck videos .
It's fucking stupid .
No shit this is before EVH .
Does it need to be said over and over !?
Did you just copy some other idiots video title ?
This is Roy smeck .
That's what it should be called .
The fact that Eddie can halen is affiliated with this at all is beyond
ridiculous .

At the end of this vid he most certainly DOES tap on the fretboard with his
right hand fingers. You clearly didn't even watch the entire video. Oh, the
irony of correcting people yet being wrong. HAHAHHA
