RIM Rocks featuring Van Halen
Air Canada, November 15, 2007
Got the feel for the wheel, keep the moving parts clean. " - Panama - Van Halen
It is normal for multi-millionaires to invite celebrities to their parties as part of the gift or the program. 50-Cent charges 250,000 pounds for a 30-minute show in a kid's Bar Mitzvah, while fellow Canadian Celine Dion asks for a rumored $1 Million. I guess she's worth it as long as she doesn't come in in this get-up.
That aside, for mere salt mine employees and middle -class Canucks, the thought of having a rock band invited to sing at your private party is an out-of-body experience.
Last time I checked, and last Thursday night, I wasn't experiencing an out-of-body experience, but I did see Eddie, Alex, Wolfgang Van Halen with David Lee Roth, sing, traipse, and rock with 20,000 or so employees for a private concert. In fact not until the day itself was it known that Van Halen was singing.
The concert was a gift of the best company to be in in Canada - RIM and everyone knows how they are very good employers with the best product that has come out Canada in recent years - the Blackberry.
Here's a sampler of the gift. You'd see David still doing his splits and high kicks and of course Eddie Van Halen being a true Guitar God and the real Guitar Hero.
1984 and 2007
Enjoy! because we did!
