Boy, 2020 sure knows when and how to knock the piss right out of you. I know for most people Eddie Van Halen’s passing will be just another celebrity death. No biggie. That happens all of the time.
For me, the news took a chunk out of me. Van Halen is a top 10, if not top 5 band for me.
I can’t imagine a world without Eruption, the “Frankenstrat”, or Everybody Wants Some in Better Off Dead. I don’t know how many issues of Guitar World I bought because Eddie was on the cover, and giving delicious guitar tips and lead licks inside.
65 is way too young. Cancer can eat a dick.
Rest easy, Eddie. Light up that sky…
