Janie Liszewski & Eddie Van Halen

Eddie Van Halen engaged to Janie Liszewski

News on the Edie Van Halen romance front, Eddie is reported to be engaged to his girlfriend/publicist:

Van Halen, 53, proposed to Liszewski, 38, on Aug. 4 while they were vacationing in Hawaii. The rock guitarist dropped to one knee and popped the question in a private room at Tiffany's, a source close to the couple tells People.

This is Eddie Van Halen's second go at marriage:

Van Halen was previously married to actress-turned-weightloss spokeswoman Valerie Bertinelli. Van Halen and Bertinelli have a son, Wolfgang, who has played with his father’s band in recent years.

Van Halen and Bertinelli’s divorce was finalized in 2007. Van Halen proposed to Liszweski in Hawaii in August, and the couple plans to wed in June, according to People.

and Janie Liszewski's first:

This will be the first matrimonial go for Liszewski, an actress and stuntwoman who became Van Halen's publicist in 2007, just in time to promote the hugely successful Van Halen reunion tour with David Lee Roth.

Eddie took an instant liking to Janie and asked her out during her job interview:

The musician told People magazine back in May that he fell in love with Liszewski the minute they met while she interviewed to be the band's manager in 2006. "A lot of people at the table were upset because I asked her out in the middle of a meeting." The couple stayed together and exchanged promise rings at Christmas last year." Speaking of their marriage plans at the time, the two said, "We'll do it when the time feels right."

Incidentally, there's an interesting comparison to be made between the photos news-sites are using to accompany this story.  There's 'Nice Eddie' and 'Scary Eddie'...

Nice Eddie Scary Eddie

I can't help but think that these days he looks like 'Nice Eddie', but the picture editors didn't feel it was "Rock n Roll" enough.
