RIP Eddie Van Halen

The first VH album from 1978 still sounds fresh today. One of the great hard rock debut albums. Not a weak song on it. You Really Got Me Now was also a great cover. Their covers were generally very good. Hearing that stun guitar for the first time was exciting. So many great rock guitarists around back then including Eddie : Page, Lifeson, Gallagher, Blackmore, Beck and so on and like the best ones Eddie had a sound of his own. Instantly recognizable even though he later had many imitators.
