    RIP EDDIE VAN HALEN πŸ–€ We are going to miss you

    • Imagine being a child on Father and son day … one kid says … this is my father … he’s a doctor …another says his dad is a welder …

      Then Wolfgangs turn … “my dad is … Eddie Van Halen .. he revolutionalized the way EVERYBODY plays guitar”…

    • I heard Eddie was ashamed that Wolfgang was his son ,

      That’s why he thoughtlessly fired Mike Anthony so his fat assed kid could play.
