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 .
