Arts education is usually one of the first things to be cut from the budget of struggling schools . . . so EDDIE VAN HALEN is lending a helping hand.
He donated 75 guitars from his personal collection to the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation. It's a program that provides musical instruments to students in low-income schools. He says, quote, "My whole life has been music. I could not imagine anything else. It's a must. It has to be taught."
