@@@@@@@@Re: An Eddie Van Halen Appreciation: Quest for the Perfect Sound

@KingstonsMom just loved this.....so sad that the legends of Rock are taken at such a young age....though that is the way of Rock and Roll...if they live to 75 that is doing great!

@KingstonsMom so sad such young talent.....but that's the life of Rock and Roll....most pass away very young.  Luck if they live to their early 70's, but what a life on the way.  RIP all.  I read Van Halen went into the studio for "Beat It" and completed the guitar solo in 20 minutes.  He did it while his band members were not around.  He said somethng like I did it for Quincy Jones and I thought ok I'll do it for the kid.  Only take a few minutes of my time and who will now.  Did not take any pay for it.
