Eddie Van Halen, guitarist for the band Van Halen, married his girlfriend, Jane Liszewski, reports Perez Hilton. The couple has been together for three years.
The Nuptuals took place Saturday night in the garden of Van Halen’s seven-acre California mansion. Ordained minister Alex Van Halen, Eddie’s brother and drummer for Van Halen, officiated the 20-minute, non-denominational ceremony. Van Halen’s son, Wolfgang, 18, was the best man.
Guests, including Van Halen’s first wife, Valerie Bertinelli, feasted on Arby’s appetizers such as mini hamburgers and corn dogs, and helped themselves to a non-alcoholic lemonade bar in honour of the guitarist’s year-and-a-half of sobriety. Approximately 100 people were in attendance, each of whom received ring pops, candy necklaces, pop rocks, wax lips and custom-printed M&Ms as they left.
For their first dance as a married couple, Van Halen chose Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful.” He and Liszewski then danced to her selection, “Time After Time,” by Cyndi Lauper.
A honeymoon in New York, Germany and the Netherlands - where Van Halen was born - is plannned.
