Eddie Van Halen Gone at 65

The guitar god had been suffering from cancer for a decade.

I expect you'll be hearing a lot of his music on Q107 in the next 24 hours.

Rock 95's been doing an excellent job with this, musically speaking, this afternoon

Newstalk 1010 had Our Lady Peace drummer Jeremy Taggert on the afternoon show just after 6:30pm the day the news broke about Eddie, because OLP toured with Van Hager in the 90's, and J.T. referred to VH as a "glam metal" band which I found odd, I always thought and still think of them as just a kick ass take no prisoners rock band.

Van Halen was one of the few bands I never got sick of playing or hearing during my radio days, and will still crank up the volume when they come on Q or Boom.
