Eddie Van Halen Solo on the Thomas Dolby Song “Eastern Bloc”
Thomas Dolby: Flattered and and amazed that Spin Magazine listed Eddie Van Halen’s guest solo on my song ‘Eastern Bloc’ in their Top Ten Eddie solos ever.
RIP Eddie Van Halen, dead today from cancer at 65. He was hilarious, mercurial, brilliant, and had the most beautiful relaxed expression as his fingers flew over the fretboard. He rarely guested for others, so I am priviledged that he played on my album ‘Astronauts and Heretics.’
