Default Eddie Van Halen

RIP Eddie!
Loved Van Halen- I remember seeing them open for Black Sabbath in 78 or 79 at the Spectrum in Philadelphia
Good times!- blasting Van Halen in my 69 Pace car with the top down just out of High School

RIP Eddie, the original Van Halen was my favorite band in the prime of my life, Many good memories in my life because of the great Music that came from this Guitarist and his band members, I thank him for it!!

My Memorabilia on the band when I went to the concert, April 1984 with Original Ticket/Program/Michael Anthony Guitar Pick and later in 2007 when they reunited with David again.

Such a loss, he will be missed
If you are an “XM “ subscriber channel 27 Deep Track
is currently devoting itself to Van Halen.

Eddie and Alex carved their name in wet cement outside of a liquor store near their house in Pasadena in 1976 and it's still there.
