I wasn’t into Van Halen as much as some of my friends but “1984” was extremely popular with my graduating class (‘84) and it’s undeniably an important part of my history. The passing of Eddie feels like that moment at the end of the concert when the lights get turned all the way up to tell everyone to go home. It’s over! Time to leave!
I’ve been listening to Spotify since I got out of class today. Van Halen was one of the first bands I put on my classic rock playlist. Thanks for helping this 20 years old discover how outstanding classic rock is! Rest In Peace Eddie.
