I saw that, what a loss that is. The guy changed a lot especially when he first came out, unbelievable sound.
He change music, that's for sure. RIP

I remember vividly the first time I ever heard 'Eruption' because from that moment on, everything changed - it was like nothing else I had ever heard before.

Gutted by this news, I'm going to get drunk.

He created some great music.
Hopefully he made amends with his former band members.

It bears mentioning here, as well, that VH's original bassist, Mark Stone also died less than two weeks ago.

Heartbreaking in both cases.

RIP Eddie and Mark.

Also 2020 can go straight to Hell.

RIP Eddie

One of my favorite versions of Eruption:



Always Van Halen..Never Van Hagar...

I watched this vid two nights ago, just because a VH song popped in my head out of the blue.
That was a good one to post.

I am pretty gutted as well.
Another one of my heroes is gone.



RIP Eddie Van Halen.

Really glad I was able to see them in 2008 on their reunion tour. Not just that but I had one of the best seats in the house...literally in the truss over the stage as a spot light operator. My target for the night was David Lee Roth. Apparently the light bothers him so much that I had to run at like 15% and basically that meant you couldn't even tell it was on among the other lights so I just turned it off and watched the show. So I got paid to watch the show in the best seat in the house!

Ah man, this sucks!!

And is us on the outside. His family is pretty tight. We feel and share the grief.

What a musician! Great, classic guitar riffs and an instantly recognizable guitar sound.

Finally lost to the big C. He had fought it so long.

RIP

Wow crazy.
I was out riding my motorcycle and I could hear the news alerts blowing up on my phone through my Bluetooth speakers.
So I pulled over to check and saw it.

Eddie was an innovator; that tapping style was unforgettable.
1984 is easily one of the seminal albums of the 80's--perhaps one of the best hard rock albums of all time.
R.I.P. Eddie.

Truly sad news. His guitar playing literally changed the musical landscape. R.I.P. Eddie!



It's starting to sink in that sooner or later all of the greats will be gone.
Except Keith, or course.

The F.U.C.K album was one of the first CDs I ever bought. I wore that one out in my 87 Chevy S-10. Thanks for the memories, truly one of the GOATs.

I saw them in 84 at Donington Park Monsters of Rock , this is my overriding memory of the day ...


Awesome set from an awesome band.

Eddie was a guitar god. I read the rumors that he wasn't doing well but hoped he would pull thru.

Rest in peace Eddie.

R.I.P. Edward Lodewijk Van Halen. My biggest inspiration for the love of playing guitar. Vai, Satriani, Eric Johnson, Goerge Lynch... just to name a few great ones. But EVH was my first introduction back in the 70's. I could sit here and post my favorite VH tunes... but I'd be posting every damn note Eddie ever made. God speed Eddie, faster than Eruption! Thank you and F@#k Cancer!











Last one I promise.
