Just heard.  :cry:

The man who changed the way a guitar could be played. He was a true legend.

He's the reason I got a guitar for Christmas back in 1981.  So happy that I finally got to see him on the reunion tour back in 2007.  Not only one of the greatest innovators ever but he pretty much wrote everything in their catalog.

One of the first guitarists that ever made me truly take notice. I’ll never forget my dad playing drums and air guitaring to 1984 in his car when we were kids. I was the same age as my oldest right now when that album came out.

Fuck this year!
Fuck cancer!

Completely opened my ears to the electric guitar. I was into music and all about songs before I heard EVH. After... Guitars suddenly mattered.

Never thought about it before, but I'd say that 1984 totally started my love of guitar as well.

Dude that sucks!

My cousin and I used to rollerskate to Jump and Panama back in the day. 

Good memories, RIP

Today when I got to work I opened my Amazon Music and started a Van Halen station. It started out with Jump and then the second song the station chose to play was Queen, Another One Bites The Dust. Oddly fitting.

I've always enjoyed this story.  Dude was not kind to his bandmates in terms of money, but didnt take a point on one of the biggest songs in the history of music.

Super bummed out after hearing the news.  Saw the 1984 tour at New Haven Coliseum and it was amazing.  We had great seats too.  I spent that whole summer trying to learn his licks, really helped me as a guitar player and taught me how to focus.
