The world is still dealing with the loss of one of its greatest guitar players ever. Eddie Van Halen leaves behind a hell of a legacy. We found out a couple of cool things in the last couple of days.
For starters, Dimebag is buried with Eddie’s legendary black and yellow bumblebee guitar….
One of the biggest surprises was the fact that old friends settled their beef.
SAMMY HAGAR’s last tour of duty with VAN HALEN didn’t end on a happy note . . . but Sammy says he and EDDIE patched things up before he died.
On the “Howard Stern Show”, he said, quote, “Eddie and I had been texting, and it’s been a love fest since we started communicating earlier this year.
“We both agreed not to tell anyone, because of all the rumors it would stir up about a reunion, et cetera, and we both knew that wasn’t gonna happen. But he also didn’t want anyone to know about his health.”
He added, quote, “He stopped responding to me a month ago, and I figured it wasn’t good. I reached out one more time last week, and when he didn’t respond, I figured it was a matter of time. But it came way too soon.”
On a related note, after Eddie died on Tuesday, Van Halen’s catalog sales jumped more than 6,100%.
