Eddie Van Halen 1955 - 2020
Guitar icon and Van Halen co-founder Eddie Van Halen has died at the age of 65 after a long battle with throat cancer. He died yesterday, October 6, 2020, at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica.
Van Halen formed in 1972 and became one of the greatest hard rock bands of the '70s and '80s. With Eddie's signature guitar style -- equal parts skill, flash and muscle -- proving highly influential on the glam metal scene in particular, as well as the connective tissue between the David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar years. He was no slouch on keyboards, either. One of the greats.
Rest in peace, Eddie.
