You’ve probably, by now, seen or heard the new that guitar legend Eddie Van Halen has died. Here’s a piece about him in the LA Times that’s worth reading.
And here’s a bonus earworm for you, too: one of his more iconic pieces, “Eruption,” followed by the excellent “You Really Got Me.” Rumor has it that “Eruption” was just a warm-up that got recorded and included on the album. I don’t know if that’s true, but I love the idea that it might be. They’re played together regularly.
