Very sad news.   RIP Eddie Van Halen.  He was a huge hero of mine when i was growing up and started playing.  Eddie changed the face of guitar playing forever.   Also saw him and VH at the coliseum many, many times.  Every hammer-on you have ever heard was influenced by him.  May his guitar playing live forever.
