He was indeed one of the greats.
I will always remember Eddie Van Halen as the guy who ALWAYS smiled when he played.
You could tell, back in the day, he was so happy when he played. Never saw him in later years, and sad to hear that he was mumbling about the shows in those later years were helping pay for rent. You would have thought with Van Halen being such a household name, he would have been able to live a good life in his later years, despite his health.
