Rock in peace, Eddie Van Halen

This is an opinion tribute.

With the electric jaw dropping instrumental “Eruption” on Van Halen’s debut album, Eddie Van Halen became an instant rock guitar god who inspired a generation of guitar slingers (and air guitarists.) The virtuoso with the infectious grin made rocking out look like so much fun, what young dude wouldn’t wanna be EVH?

Rock in peace, Eddie Van Halen.
