A long battle with throat cancer has ended. Like so many others of a certain age, Eddie's guitar was part of the soundtrack of my teenage years and beyond. I never managed to get to a VH show and that's one of the big open bucket list items that will never be checked off.

I wasn't at FarmAid in 85 either, but the fact that this went down on campus while I was there is still a neat piece of history.

I attended Farm Aid and and really enjoyed experiencing this. We jokingly called them Van Hagar as I believe it was the first performance of Sammy joining Van Halen on stage. RIP Eddie.
