He was a nice guy. Back in the 70s I once rode motorcycle escort for them and Black Sabbath coming from the airport to an in-store appearance.

Eddie and some of the other guys in the band were interested in motorcycles and kept talking to me out the window as I was driving. They gave me backstage passes and I sat up on top of one of the amps during the concert. All along the way there were fans lining the roadway waiting for the motorcade. I had not seen that before. Van Halen has some really loyal fans.

Yes it is always sad to see them go. Just feels like a part of your life goes with them. I went to a couple of Van Halen concerts as a teen. I went to the concerts when David Lee Roth was in the band.

My stepfather was really the only father figure I had. He was an engineer, he retired and was building a plane with a friend. He was coming home from the airport when a young girl ran a stop sign killing him instantly.He had a influence on my musical interest, based on the album collection he was kind enough to allow me to listen to.

@starrider I’m so sorry. 😔 What a painful thing to have to bear. You have great taste in music though. The things that influence us. Memories. Memories are why we may like one band over another even though nothing is wrong with either. We just may have the memories there with the song or band that we like more. Music is ...❤
