Legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen broke his social media silence today and posted a really rare story with his MTV Video Music Award from 1983-1984.

As Eddie Van Halen shares the story of how he got Best Stage Performance In A Video award, he used Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page’s iconic ‘On This Day’ ritual on social media.

Here is what Eddie Van Halen wrote:

“On this day in 1984, Van Halen won Best Stage Performance In A Video for “Jump” at the first ever MTV Video Music Awards held at Radio City Music Hall!
