In memoriam Eddie Van Halen

(Left to right) Albert Lee, Eddie Van Halen, and Steve

This was the last show that I played before my son, Kevin, was born.  Albert was always amazing, but the couple of shows that Eddie played with us really showed his raw talent and ability to adapt his style to the songs.

My heart goes out to his family, and especially his son, as I know that they were very close, like Kev and I.  Eddie, you made a huge musical impact worldwide.

Sorry you had to go so early. – Steve
