Jimmy Page Pays Tribute to Eddie Van Halen: “He Was The Real Deal”

Jimmy Page: It is with great sadness that I heard the passing of Eddie Van Halen. ⁣

He was the real deal: he pioneered a dazzling technique on guitar with taste and panache that I felt always placed him above his imitators. ⁣

It was good to see him featured at the Met’s Play It Loud Exhibition.⁣

R. I. P. Eddie⁣
