Eddie Van Halen, the legendary guitarist for the band Van Halen, has died of cancer, his son announced Tuesday. He was 65.

"Every moment I've shared with him on and off stage was a gift," Wolf Van Halen wrote in a short statement posted on Twitter. "My heart is broken and I don't think I'll ever fully recover from this loss."

The musician was one of the founders of the California-born band, along with his brother Alex Van Halen, singer David Lee Roth, and bassist Michael Anthony.

8. RIP, So Sad


WHAT a talent. He was a revolutionary guitarist who changed rock music forever, he could play keyboards at an extremely high level (e.g., the solo on "Jump" to take just one instance), and he could sing as well.

From someone he influenced and to whom he brought comfort, rest in peace, Mr. Van Halen.
