BREAKING NEWS
Eddie Van Halen is dead at 65. He was one of his generation’s most influential guitarists, and his band was one of the most popular rock acts ever.
Tuesday, October 6, 2020 3:58 PM EST
Mr. Van Halen’s son, Wolfgang, said in a statement that his father had “lost his long and arduous battle with cancer.”

Mr. Van Halen structured his guitar solos in roughly the same way Macy’s choreographs its Independence Day fireworks shows, shooting rockets of sound into the air that seemed to explode in a shower of light and color. His outpouring of riffs, runs and solos was hyperactive and athletic, joyous and wry, making deeper or darker emotions feel irrelevant.

Been listening all-day. Qobuz has a bunch of albums. The guy could play, just wish the spent some effort on the recording chain. Pretty flat and grainy
