Default Eddie Van Halen Has Passed

https://www.tmz.com/2020/10/06/eddie...ies-cancer-65/

Throughout much of the mid - late 70's we partied like rock stars and much of it was to the riffs this guy kicked out.

R.I.P.

Eddie

Side note my wife and her sisters grew up with his ex Valerie out in Clarkston Michigan.

Can’t say that I didn’t see it coming. Alcoholic, cancer and general lifestyle.

RIP to the legend.

edit. Read the story, did not know the cancer had returned with a vengeance.

Saw them at the height of their fame and creativity. I could NOT believe Eddie sounded that great live.

He was an amazing all around talent, including how he built his guitar.

This one hurts.

Wow....65 years old. As soon as I heard of the news I looked to see how old he was as I thought he was still pretty young, 65 is pretty young to die.

So sad. I remember hearing their first LP, a radio promo on red vinyl. Just saw a video of him a couple of days ago, he said 'keep playing or I'm coming for you.'
