Re: Eddie Van Halen... RIP

Very sad news. I came of age during the Van Hagar era.

I used to listen to this song and then just go play on the swings with it playing in my head.

A true genius and icon; Van Halen is one of my favorite groups and Jump is regularly at the top of the list in Top 100 Songs of the 80's in the US

RIP, Eddie!

Re: Eddie Van Halen... RIP

VH connected me with my older brother who took up the electric guitar one summer. i have fond memories of us listening to their music together.my one regret never seeing VH live. must have been amazing experience and to watch Eddie's guitar skills. gone too soon...2020 sucks....
