Eddie Van Halen is a rock God for those whocan’t help but hum to a guitar strum. The legend passed away after a prolonged illness.  His son, Wolf Van Halen, made this announcement via his Twitter account. He said, “I can’t believe I’m having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning.  Ed was 65.

Eddie Van Halen is no more

Ed and Alex were the fore-runners of the rock scene in the 70s.  Shows that talks about the seventies have some kind of reference to the Halens, including characters wearing t-shirts that might look cheesy in 2020.
