Yes - this was quite a shock to read:

I was always a bigger fan of VH when Sammy Hagar was with them, rather than the original 4; however, in either incarnation, he clearly reinvented hard rock guitar playing.

R.I.P., Eddie...

 

...and MTV Classic has been honoring him all day yesterday and is continuing to do so today by playing nothing but VH videos. A very nice tribute. 🎸

Oh no, RIP Eddie van Halen 

39 poor souls in a shipping container hoping for a new life in the UK. Too awful a fate to be imagined

And John Lennon too!

Now Bill and Ted will never get Eddie Van Halen on guitar :( (Is it bad that that scene from Excellent Adventure is one of the first things I associate with him?) 

 I was up late last night watching Rafa Nadal's French Open match and the commentator broke the news during the match. Which was a bit weird and I couldn't believe it then. Still struggling to compute it now. He inspired so many people to pick up a guitar and learn to play.

If cancer was a visible, physical being, I'd want to punch it in the face right now. And not just over EVH.

We lost a member of our family to cancer over the weekend too. Our cousin Paul had already beaten pancreatic cancer once and lived a lot longer than doctors expected, but the cancer returned a few months ago.

Rest in Peace to both of them.

R.I.P. to my mom - 4 years ago she went to join all of her friends and relatives who went to heaven first.

I know she is helping us from beyond to make sure we have a new president in January 2021. Thank you, mom, for everything you did for me and all of our family while you were here. R.I.P.

Amen, and if your mom is a fan of Rush and Van Halen, hopefully Neil and Eddie are entertaining her. 😊

R.I.P, atu2.com

This was one of the best (and, in many U2 fans’ opinions, the best) fan-run U2 site. Back in the early days of the Internet, this was one of a handful of “go-to” sites for band info. A sad day...

RIP ATU2.COM :then_now:

Aww, this one hurts a lot :( We've lost an iconic actor, Sir Sean Connery. He was 90. Possibly the best Bond there's ever been and so many other iconic roles.

It probably won't mean much to those of you outside the UK, but it was also announced yesterday that Nobby Stiles has died, aged 78. He helped England to win the World Cup in 1966 and was also very successful at club level with Manchester United.
