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!
