I got off the VH train a long long time ago, but I probably never would have picked a guitar if not for Eddie Van Halen.  RIP.

I didn't realize that he had cancer. That sucks. He may not have invented two handed tapping but he sure as shit popularized it.

Had it for a while. It ended up in remission, but came back hard it sounds like. Throat cancer is not something I would wish him to have to suffer any longer with, having seen it in action in my own extended family. Same thing; too much smoking and alcohol.

 

RIP to a legend.

I'm imagining Ellis writing the script to this at a computer, and every time he gets to the end of a line about religion being bad he smacks his fedora to tip it, making the sounds of a typewriter being reset.

a lotta ppl dont realize how much of an incredible songwriter evh was on the keys too. he did this with an ehx microsynth, they cost about 50 bucks back in the day and had a weird paper insert under the keys that made them a bit finicky. now they go for about a grand. stuff like this, evh's noodly stuff was what laid the groundwork for 1984 and the synths coming into their sound.

the way i understood it was that his cancer was in remission. he had a sizable portion of his tongue taken off. dlr said van halen was done and im thinking maybe him and eddie got real with each other and he told him 'this is it' after the last tour. the cancer spread to his brain and other organs. fuck that fucking disease.

Dave definitely knew from the way he'd been talking in the press, but no details were officially confirmed that I ever saw. I think everyone had a good idea after his prior issues though.

He may not have invented two handed tapping but he sure as shit popularized it.


And almost definitely named it, according to Steve Hackett. The man left his mark on rock and metal forever. R.I.P.

His son Wolfgang also claims that they had a great familial relationship, so it really sounds like he was a great dude. And the dude who made the iconic X-Men animated series theme song met EVH, who apparently loved the theme song so much he tried to learn it.

You don't see me going to ice cream socials and not eating ice cream and socializing.
