Wow! Shock after shock. In the Rock-and-Roll world, you can't have a higher technical achievement than creating a new style of playing. EVH certainly did that. R.I.P.

So sad to see him go at so young an age.
I wish my memory were better as I used to live half a block from the Rock (had to edit that, confusing it with the cafe up in the hills), which was a biker bar in Van Nuys. Wet T-shirt nights, bar fights and all the beer I could drink. Hell’s Angels, Satan’s Slaves and others kind of had a truce at that place. My sister dated the asst. manager. And the band that sometimes played there before they were signed was Van Halen. Like I said, I wish my memory was better.
All the best,
