Wow.

We knew he was sick....months ago Roth let it slip that he wasnt doing well at all and VH was basically over. It's when Eddie was on death watch by fans. It's actually surprising he lasted this long.

It's still a huge blow. There will never be another Eddie Van Halen.

The 2020s are going to be a terrible decade when it comes to the loss of the surviving icons from the 60s-80s.

Stones
Fleetwood Mac
Aerosmith
Zeppelin

Female icons like Blondie, Madonna, Gloria Estefan, etc

List goes on and on and on....


Gonna listen to Van Halen today in tribute.

It's time for Roth to reunite the Eat Em And Smile lineup for a show or two. It almost happened in 2015. No reason not to do it now.

I know the global consensus is that the downward spiral started with Van Hagar...and there is a drop in quality no doubt...but 5150 has some damn good songs.

Best of Both Worlds
Dreams
Love Walks In

OU812 has a legacy of crap production but Finish What  Ya Started IMO is one of the best songs in the discography. It's the most Roth like song from Van Hagar.

After those two albums, other than a couple songs, they lost me.


I loved Diver Down. Brings back memories of 4th grade. I got into it after 1984 blew up. It's a really fun album. Gonna download it. I only have the hits albums on my computer now.

I should give Balance a listen. I hated it back then and never bothered with it again.

Fair Warning is underrated. Great Eddie record.

ADKOT is underrated.

Balance is better than FUCK.

Sammy got Robin Finck'd by the band. He shouldn't have to put up with that.

But lets keep it positive.
