We’ve lost one of the all time greats this morning. The Beethoven of the 6 string. Eddie Van Halan. I’ve always been thankful I got to see VH a few years ago. They have rarely played outside of North America the last 25 years. Seeing them now takes on even more significance. RIP.
It sucks even harder when you find out he was battling cancer and it wasn’t known. It’s like you have no time to prepare. You just wake up and he’s gone. I understand he’s entitled to privacy, but whenever something like this happens and you find out after th fact, it makes me wonder who else could be privately battling that we are about to lose.
