 ^ The first album I ever heard by them is the one you posted. I was in a truck with my buddy Lance Ludwig in high school- we were smoking weed. He threw it in the 8-track and said- "Listen to this,Ronny!"
Blew my mind.

He's born in the Netherlands!

This is so incredibly sad. I loved his music for years as a teen and young adult.

It's difficult to imagine that his groundbreaking signature track Eruption was released in 1978! I once read that another famous guitarist heard Eruption and didn't know that the arpeggiated sequence was played with tapping. Apparently, he practiced playing the tapping section with one hand so much that he was able to play it with just hammer on and pull off. I have no idea how this is even possible.

I got into Van Halen when my longest standing friend loaned me a couple of tapes. We were into music in a way only young teens could be, playing it incessantly, over and over again until the tapes went fuzzy. It was this friend who messaged me with news of Eddie's passing, decades on. Eddie Van Halen has influenced so many with his tremendous talent and energy, and he will always be remembered.
