As if 2020 couldn’t get any worse. Eddie died. Gutted. He played the guitar to my o level and a level revision, I think I was the only one in my school who thought van halen were a cool band. I was amazed when bbc breakfast did a thing on him and interviewed Gene Simmons who spoke so wonderfully of Eddie. Very touching it was. Obviously at 65 he was never going to be producing another “Eruption” or “Mean Streets” etc but his last tour he was absolutely nailing it. I don’t know about anybody else but the sound he made from his guitar was matched by very few in the rock world. Very sad. Only positive is his son might release a ton of music from his tons of studio recordings and maybe someone will release a digital remaster of their ‘83 tour. Rip Eddie >you_rock
Saw that interview. The Beeb gave a full 10 mins to Gene Simmons. Fine tribute to one of the genuinely nice guys.
