Eddie Van Halen passed away. https://nypost.com/2020/10/06/eddie-van-halen-dead-at-65/
Cancer is a bitch, especially when you dont quit smoking. He was having issues wayyyy before 2019. Fact. I also heard he wasnt very pleasant about some things in regards to van Halen and dave. I think the only thing that held van Halen back from continuing to be a staple...was his control issues.
Bet I hear a shit pile of VH on the way home.
Rest In Peace!
I just saw. I'm in Shock there goes a piece of my childhood. R.I.P, Eddie. Thanks for the Memories.
Another great gone too soon!
Keep "runnin' with the devil"!
I liked a lot of their music, but when you lay in that bed, well, "you lay in that bed"
Just when I thought 2020 can't get any worse!
I just heard about this about half an hour ago. It really took the wind out of my sails. Cigarettes and cancer killed my dad too.
Rest in Peace Eddie
RIP Eddie... One great guitarist.... I enjoyed all of the music over the years....
RIP, always been one of my guitar heroes.
I've read much the same. He was one hell of a showboat on the guitar, there's no contesting that. He said he always felt like how he held his steel and copper picks in his mouth contributed to his cancer. He got to bang Valerie. That had to be a high point. May he RIP.
I will always remember skipping school with my friends, boom box eating up eight D cells in the back seat of a hot rod 1970 Cutlass with the first VanHalen album on cassette playing over and over as we would speed down the highway into NYC! RIP Eddie.
"The best gymnast guitarist ever." Qouted by Eric clapton. Learned and played his solos exactly In my band n late 80s. No one plays rock guitar worth listening to Anymore. Lost art. R.I.P.
I heard the news this afternoon, from a post here in fact. Speechless, I never met the man, feel fortunate to have seen him play live once around 2003, had 5th row seats, he played a 25 minute solo, just jammin' and chatting with the crowd. I grew up listening to Van Halen, remember being blown away listening to VH1 start to finish on vinyl. It's still one of my favorite records. Been a fan ever since, will always be. Can't help feeling like I lost a friend I never knew. Rock on EVH, rock on! Condolences to his family.
Eddie Van Halen was one of those rare and few guitarists that actually "raised the bar" for guitarists. Not since Hendrix had the bar truly been raised. Sad sad day...... RIP EVH
Incredible to be able to play, even more incredible to compose that cutting edge music. RIP Eddie. Rock and roll heavens got to have one hell of a band!
Hot for Teacher through 100W amped 10's and soft dome tweeters in my 65 back in high school. Blew the passenger away how good it sounded. I just heard "you really got me" last night in the garage and had to turn it up, every time. My kid just told me, guess I was working hard today as I didn't hear anything about it. 2020 sucks.....
Always great times with Van Halen cranked. Diver Down was their 1st album that got me hooked. RIP Eddie.
