A Year Without Eddie

One year ago today on October 6, 2020, the strings of the mighty “Frankenstrat” went silent; it was the day that Eddie Van Halen died at 65 from complications of cancer he was fighting. A lot of things have happened in the year since we lost Eddie Van Halen; among them, his son Wolfgang Van Halen has launched a successful solo career, older brother Alex Van Halen broke his silence on May 8, 2021, to point out it was his first without Eddie, and original Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth has announced his upcoming retirement in early 2022.

Eddie Van Halen left us with almost 4 decades of music to treasure and pass on; it would be a great day to break out Diver Down and play Little Guitars.
