EVH's frantic, hot-rodded guitar playing was the reason why I decided to take up guitar playing.

Ironic that Eddie has two cigarettes hanging off the headstock in the video above.

Funny. It was listening to the first Van Halen album in a record store that sent me off into synths and samplers for twenty years. Not that I didn't admire the guitar playing, just couldn't stand the vacuous lyrical content and pompous rawkness of the whole thing ( I was too old even back then ). Walked out with the first Dixie Dreggs album instead..

Sad though, great guitar innovator.

I'll never forget sliding that first album cassette into the car tape deck and what erupted from those Jensen speakers. Adios atomic punk.

Hang 'em High was the first VH I ever heard and I remember that moment like it was yesterday. Total fucking game-changer.

RIP Eddie.
