Ritchie Blackmore Pays Tribute to Eddie Van Halen: “His Brilliant Legacy Will Always Be Remembered”

Candice Night: My husband, Ritchie Blackmore said it best. “Eddie Van Halen was a brilliant guitarist who started a technique of guitar playing which was emulated by a whole generation of guitarists. He was one of the nicest musicians I ever met in the music business. Very shy and not at all conceited about his ability as a guitar player. Frank Zappa said he reinvented the guitar. I agree. He will be sadly missed but his brilliant legacy will always be remembered. The ultimate guitar hero.” #ripeddievanhalen #ripeddie #gonetoosoon #EddieVanHalen
