RIP Eddie Van Halen

A Different Kind of Truth :( 

....Eddie, who made 1st history with Eruption and then Jamie's Crying, Atomic Punk, Ain't Talking bout Love, Running with the Devil, I'm the One (all on VH's 1st album in 1978)...and then Beat It, Jump, Panama, Hot for Teacher, Dreams, Why Can't This Be Love ?, When It's Love, Right Here Right Now came later...

...well, Edward Lodewjick Van Halen is gone...looong fight with the throat cancer, cancer finally won.  A real GIANT of Rock'n roll, one of  the top musicians of all time, absolutely my FAVED Guitar HERO a true GENIUS and one of the most virtuoso guitarists, hugely influential to say the least, but I never got to see him. Saw the rest of the band, minus Alex, with Chickenfoot in Paris at Olympia. But I still hoped I will see Eddie doing his bit of Eruption or Little Dreamer or Man on Mission on stage...Cathedral...

Hit hard the hurt chord...Goodbye Eddie ! A whole era is gone...RIP...at only 65...
