[MarsNews] Rest Easy, Eddie Van Halen 1955-2020

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…
