    Man, if 2020 didn't already suck enough. We lost a legend today. Eddie Van Halen, dead at 65, from cancer.

    Just saw that. :(:(:(:(:(:(:(

    Maybe not the greatest (although arguable), but certainly the first in many ways. My greatest guitar hero.

    I will argue he was/is until the day I die, even though he wasn’t my favorite.

    Look at me, I’m responding to a RIP thread and being serious about it.

    RIP
    I always enjoyed watching him play because he seemed to be having so much fun.

    I just got the news, I'm disheartened to see one of my biggest inspirations to have died. Truly a loss to the guitar community and to a generation. Thoughts and prayers going out to his family.

    Man...I don’t even know what to write. Nobody else captivated my 14 year old mind enough to play their first album dozens and dozens of times on a cassette player while driving half way across the country. Nothing has mesmerized me instantly as much as the first drop of the needle on VH1. Nothing. Man...
