Many of us who attended AHS will remember Van Halen in the 70's, playing at back yard parties while the helicopters shined their lights upon us. Like so many other kids with drums and guitars, Van Halen was working the weekend party circuit to make a name for themselves. They were one of a dozen local bands we listened to, and one in a million who made the meteoric rise to the top of the Rock and Roll world. We pay tribute to the good times and the groups' success that is forever a part of Arcadia High School history. The Beatles, Hendrix, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, and so many other bands shaped our youth. Our Van Halen memories are unique ones, and a reminder of what life was like in the 70's and how it shaped our future.
