The world of rock today lost one of its true greats, as Eddie Van Halen finally lost his battle with throat cancer today aged 65.  A hero of almost every rock guitarist Eddie pioneered the “tapping” method as well as being behind many rock hits such as Jump and Hot For Teacher – with the album 1984 breaking the band into the mainstream and into every rock record collection on the planet.

RIP Eddie Van Halen, 1955 – 2020.
