I am amazed to be the first to post this in the coffee shop. I am very, very moved by the passing of Eddie Van Halen.
Eddie took guitar playing somewhere no one had before, and he appeared by all accounts to be a decent guy as well. I regret very much that I never met him, even to say thanks to him for the gift we all now have in his recordings.
Very, very sad. I cannot write any more than this.
Yes, very sad. I remember buying that first VH album, having only heard the cover of "You Really Got Me". Put it on the turntable and heard "Eruption" and was immediately blown away by Eddie's playing.
Saw them in the mid-'80s with Sammy Hagar on the 5150 tour. Great live show.
