Wow! Another Sucker Punch to The Gut in 2020- EVH Dead @65


Two records that had more impact on me to memory than most - Diver Down from Van Halen and Nevermind from Nirvana

Listening to Diver Down on cassette as loud as the crappy stereo would go in my buddy Chris' 1973 Chevy Chevelle would go. We spent the summer in 1983 owning the streets of the small Colorado town we grew up in.

Eddie Van Halen blew my mind the first time I heard Eruption. Just completely blew my mind. I didn't have that reaction until Geffen records walked into the radio station and handed me a song called Smells Like Teen Spirit.

R.I.P Eddie.
