I have been a life-long fan of Van Halen. My dad raised me on all the greats, including Van Halen.
Fuck 2020. Another famous person's death that stings like a motherfucker. Jesus.
Sending my condolences to Eddie Van Halen's family, including he and ex wife Valerie Bertinelli's son Wolfgang. RIP Eddie! You will be missed, and you will never be forgotten.
I can't fucking deal, guys. 2020 is the shittiest year.
