Eddie Van Halen shares his best advice with 'Esquire'

Listen to Van Halen on iHeartRadio

Van Halen's Eddie Van Halen says the best advice he's ever received came from his father. 

The rocker tells "Esquire" that as a young guitarist he wasn't sure of what to do when he didn't deliver a flawless performance, so he asked his dad how to handle such situations. 

He says his dad gave him two suggestions - "don't stop" and "don't let the audience know you made a mistake." 

Eddie is among the men contributing the most valuable words of wisdom they've received to "Esquire's" "Amazing Portrait of the American Man in 2013." 

The feature is part of a special issue commemorating the publication's 80th anniversary, which will arrive on newsstands September 17th.
