Music RIP Eddie Van Halen

Recommended Posts

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you all that one of the all time great guitar players, if not the greatest guitar player of all time, Eddie Van Halen, has passed away, aged 65, from throat cancer.


What can I really say? He and his brother Alex changed the world of not just rock and metal, but music itself. Entire generations were inspired to pick up a guitar thanks to him. I'm listening to their debut vinyl as I type. Atomic Punk is currently on. 


Rest In Power, Eddie. May your legacy live on.

Maaaaan, this one hurts. I'm only 21, but VH was (by way of my dad, a big EVH fanboy) the reason why I became such a big fan of rock when I was still a kid. And if A Different Kind of Truth is anything to go by, they still had potential to make good shit, but I guess we'll never know unless they've been sitting on some unfinished next album material this whole time.
