I wish only good for him.
He’s the King. He’s been down before, hope he gets better.
From the good old days, this song always made me happy:
I really did not relish the direction he would be taking guitar playing.
But I sure saw talent there; a whopping ton of it. You've simply got to stop and show respect when a guy comes at you, this powerful.
I send him all the best wishes there are - strength and grace. They don't come along this big, very often.
Coolest rhythm player ever! Just funks! I hated Van Halen in the day because I was a fusion snob. Really like some of their stuff now.
Get well Eddie!!!
in Holland, we had a radio program with Alfred Lagarde, Betonuur. translated : concrete hour
Running with the Devil came out from the speakers there and blew me away.
if there are hard times, i wish the brothers well and the family a lot of love
Yeah, and after he left the Vara he went to DJ for Veronica radio (Yup THAT Veronica radio) where he hosted "Countdown cafe" which again became a showcase on exciting new bands, among others, he introduced Mother's finest, Foreigner and Toto to European audiences.
When Alfred Lagarde died, there was a big tribute concert in Amsterdam's Paradiso.
This compilation has Mother's finest play and features interviews with amongst others Steve Lukather, EVH and Alex (who are speaking Dutch)
i remember hearing his program with a cassettedeck standing by to record the things i liked.
Best wishes to Eddie, I was lucky to see VH with Sammy around 12 years ago. Get well soon.
His rhythm playing ! Which come on - was 80% of his playing - was brilliant . He was the whole band.
All those riffs, all those cool little parts. Perfect example :
My favorite Van Halen song! I cut my teeth on the guitar playing this album and will always consider Eddie one of my guitar mentors! Him and Satch kept me really busy in the early '90s trying to figure out how they did it all.
Whatever ends up with EVH, he will always be remembered as one of those benchmarks. Much like Jimi Hendrix was. An innovator that affected millions.
In the 80s I was in school and not playing out. My buddies and I would go out for a beer and MTV would be on. I heard Ed's tapping and thought, well I'll never play out again................wrong.
Probably my favorite tune from the Van Hagar era. Came out when I was in high school, we thought it was alright. Fond memories of this, and many albums from the 80s. Dave went solo, so what are you gonna do..go get Sammy Hagar? Ok, we'll bite Thanks for the reminder, I need to learn this tune
On a lighter side, who ever thought Eddie would end up looking like John Prine.
In 1978 I was 14 and the first person to play “Eruption” (the record - I still can’t play it on guitar) for my guitar teacher. His response to the tapping section was “guitars can’t do that, it might be a keyboard”. His final verdict was “it’s a trick - they recorded him playing slow and speeded it up for the record”. Eddie blew all our minds, and wrote some really great tunes. Hope he pulls through and gets back to the stage soon.

Eddie was a large part of why I even had an interest in guitar as a young to be rocker back in the 80's.
I hope he is well.
He was pretty good at guitar...
Hmm. I was just listening to Zenyatta Mondatta last night thinking how revolutionary Andy Summers was. Guess it's all relative.
EDIT: Allan Holdsworth was making his mark around the same time. Now there's a revolutionary.
How in the name of glob do you keep a cigarette attached to the end of a Steinberger?
