  1. RIP Eddie Van Halen. Thank you for:
    Beat it
    Jump
    Why can't this be love
    When it's love
    Right Now
    1984
     
  2. I expect a lot of people (or a certain age) will know the name, just because of Beat It. And *that* guitar sound.

    VH are one of the all-time great rock bands. The four album run from 1984 to 1991 is part of my growing up.

    RIP Ed.

  3. There's only a few who truly redefined what it meant to be a rock guitarist, and Eddie was one of them. All that needs to be said, really.

    On behalf of my 14-year-old self mangling "Eruption" on his Squier Budget Strat, RIP.
     
  4. I only had 1984 and a couple of CD singles, but Jump and Why Can't It Be Love would be in my mythical top 100 if I ever compiled it - and Beat It is one hell of a solo. Sad.
