RIP EDDIE VAN HALEN.
A huge loss. I grew up with Van Halen and have many memories friends, boyfriends, cruisin’ the parking lots with the speakers thumpin’ … good memories. Awesome guitarist. Nice interview with him about his signature guitar.
I say suddenly because I had no knowledge of his cancer which started 5 years ago.
Two other greats are gone with little said about their health , Neil Pieart of RUSH, and before him, The Lord of the Keyboard, Jon Lord of Deep Purple. And May of 2010, Mr Ronnie James DIO.
I could have found a better video. I didn’t watch it all before I posted.
Another great one is gone
And now I’ll mention the passing of ALEX TREBEK. Enough shows were prerecorded to continue JEPORDY through December.
Worked up until a few days before he died. Seems incredible because pancreatic cancer is so painful.
I don’t really pay much attention to Royal stories, but some of the archive footage of his early achievements and falling in love with Elizabeth made me think of him quite differently. There was much I didn’t know about him. Something to be admired is his Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme which is a legacy to be proud of. After such a long marriage it is sad for any woman to lose someone they clearly loved.
