His son and band member posted this:
I can’t believe I’m having to write this, but my father,
Edward Lodewijk Van Halen,
has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer.
He was the best father I could ever ask for.
Every moment I’ve shared with him on and off stage was a gift.
My heart is broken and I don’t think I’ll ever fully recover from this loss.
I love you so much, Pop.
From Ozzy Osbourne
and we shared so many laughs together.
His influence on music and especially the guitar has been immeasurable.
He was an absolute legend. Eddie, I’ll see you on the other side, my friend.
Thanks for all the music, WARM 106.9
