5150ってなに?

米国カリフォルニア州警察の無線コードのひとつで、精神的・感情的に問題のある人、精神錯乱とか精神衰弱の状態にある人、発狂している人など、つまりヤバイ人のことを指す。

読み方は、日本語では「ごー・いち・ごー・まる」と呼ぶのが一般的でしょう。英語では「フィフティーワン・フィフティー」ね。

エディ先生はこの数字をいたく気に入っているようで、7枚目のアルバムのタイトルは「5150」、シグネイチャーモデルのアンプは「5150」、自分のスタジオは「5150スタジオ」と、なんでもかんでも5150。

だから、私の好きな数字も5150です♪

VH公式サイトに掲載されている説明は、以下のとおりです。

5150 comes from the California Code of the same name. And was the source of the album’s title. Here’s the actual code taken verbatim from the law book:

5150. When any person, as a result of mental disorder, is a danger to others, or to himself or herself, or gravely disabled, a peace officer, member of the attending staff, as defined by regulation, of an evaluation facility designated by the county, designated members of a mobile crisis team provided by Section 5651.7, or other professional person designated by the county may, upon probable cause, take, or cause to be taken, the person into custody and place him or her in a facility designated by the county and approved by the State Department of Mental Health as a facility for 72-hour treatment and evaluation.

Such facility shall require an application in writing stating the circumstances under which the person’s condition was called to the attention of the officer, member of the attending staff, or professional person, and stating that the officer, member of the attending staff, or professional person has probable cause to believe that the person is, as a result of mental disorder, a danger to others, or to himself or herself, or gravely disabled. If the probable cause is based on the statement of a person other than the officer, member of the attending staff, or professional person, such person shall be liable in a civil action for intentionally giving a statement which he or she knows to be false.
