Van Halen's guitars gift to schools

Rocker Eddie Van Halen has donated 75 electric guitars to Los Angeles-area high schools as a way to inspire music in children.

Tricia Steel, of the Mr Holland's Opus Foundation, said the Van Halen lead guitarist arrived with the brand-new guitars this week, saying he wanted them used in schools and not sold.

The non-profit-making Los Angeles foundation has distributed the guitars to seven schools serving mostly low-income students which needed them to replace broken instruments or build music enrolment.

Schools were not told where the guitars came from until they arrived, and then they were advised to keep them under tight lock and key.
