Sad news for the rock world today. The death was announced of Legendary Rock Star and Guitar God.
Eddie Van Halen passed a way, after succumbing to throat cancer, it is believed he had the disease for some time and had a long running battle. He was widely regarded as one of the greatest guitarists who ever lived. One of the earliest to use the tapping technique during his solos, the man is also responsible for some of the most well known riffs of the 70s and 80s, from Ain’t Talking ‘Bout Love to Hot for Teacher. Tributes have already come pouring in from across the rock world on social media, everyone from Aerosmith to Pantera, having nothing but love and praise for the man. A devastating blow to the rock community and someone who will be ever so sorely missed. Music has lost one of the finest rock musicians of the time and we pay tribute.. RIP EVH
