So bummed. This guy's work was the soundtrack of my youth, and he brought an amazing sense of fun, play, and experimentation to heavy rock. A master of the instrument. RIP Eddie, and thanks for the good times and great sounds.
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.
