Rock Legend Eddie Van Halen Passes Away At 65

Sad news awaits this morning as rock icon and Van Halen’s main songwriter, guitarist and co-founder, Eddie Van Halen has passed away from cancer at the age of 65.

His son, Wolfgang Van Halen, posted the heartbreaking message on his social media this morning:

“I can’t believe I’m having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning.

He was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment I’ve shared with him on and off stage was a gift.

My heart is broken and I don’t think I’ll ever fully recover from this loss.

I love you so much, Pop.”

Our deepest condolences are with Van Halen‘s family and dearest friends at this time.
