Never a Van Halen fan but certainly remember him from the 80s. RIP. Sorry to see them all pass on.

Saw them in 79 supporting Sabbath on the Sabs 10th anniversary tour, VH first time in the UK.

Eddie's approach to the guitar certainly made a few established guitar heroes have a rethink, in the same way when Hendrix hit the scene. 65 is far to young to pass nowadays.

Assuming you have some basic guitar knowledge and ability, hammer-ons and pull-offs on an electric guitar don't take that much talent and that was pretty much the bulk of his stuff that people that was "god-like" lol

He wasn't really much of a talent as much as he just knew the right people and was a profitable investment. Well that and suckin' off a few heebs will do it...usually.
Vaper buys pod system, asks for a 510 adapter. LOL for days
