Rock In Peace EVH.
In addition to all the comments here I'll add that you always made playing guitar look like a really fun thing to do. You were always smiling and having a good time and there are MANY musicians that seemed to be more into making rock and roll and playing live music dour and depressing. Your charisma and showmanship combined with your ridiculous guitar skills truly set you apart.
edit-I posted this from Better Off Dead because it is so absolutely part of my childhood. I love this song, and the fact that it was used in such a great scene from that movie makes it even better. VH is an iconic band that has influenced SO MUCH of American life. Eddie, himself and his vision, permeated through every aspect of modern guitar playing and guitar/amp manufacturing. His influence is so wide that it’s truly unbelievable. He was every bit as important to rock music as any of the founding fathers of rock-little Richard, Chuck Berry etc, and possibly more important in American culture. He will be missed.
Thank you Ed.
I don't know why my music thread was merged into this one.
R I P Eddie you gave me the inspiration to build my own 'Frankenstrat'.
I had soooo much fun building this!
Nice tribute. VH II was something...
Yes, thanks Ed! And Al... you guys were a team.
I’m sorry for his suffering. I’ve lost two good friends to cancer, both of them excellent visual artists. It’s not the last days, it’s all the crap leading up to them, the two or three years before it metastasizes and kills you that’s really tough for friends and family.
It's a punch in the stomach...it seems like a part of youth or memories from youth have been erased or are dead.
VH and rr is the only 80s metal I listen to 40 yrs later.Eddie was a kid when I listened to him yrs ago and I was a younger kid.Vh was the soundtrack of my life of my younger years-but maybe my older years too.Ive never stopped listening to vh.Partly because the spirit of vh music was fun,uplifting,edgy all at once.Today, he is no more ,going forward.My mortality, today, got a lot more real.Its depressing,sad, scary.
There's a vigil at the whisky tonight but idk if that's mentally wise for me...too depressing.
Thanks Eddie for all the great memories.
Fantastic tribute. It’s my favorite piece you’ve shared yet.
EVH will be missed. I’m young enough to have literally been aware of him my whole life. This one leaves a hole.
RIP Eddie; thanks for all you gave us.
ROCK STAR among rock stars. See you EVH, I hope not too soon.
RIP Eddie..More than deserves his place on the Mount Rushmore of guitar heroes. Cranked my amp up to 10 tonight in his honour. Jump was my first memory of enjoying rock music, would have been like 5 jumping on my parents bed.
Ed made timeless music. Even his lousy stuff rocked.
Wonderful tribute. Today sucks.
