Aw, man.  65 is no age.  Goodbye, Eddie.

Kudos for giving his son (also a Van Halen band member) the most hair-metal name imaginable - Wolfgang Van Halen.

Van Halen were both first album (5150) and first single (Why can't this be love) for this Squaxx.

Still have loads on my Ipod, too.

RIP Eddie.

My best mate at school was a brilliant guitarist who spent a year studying at the Guitar Institute in Los Angeles, where Eddie Van Halen would drop in to give guest classes, and he never had anything but praise for the guy, despite the fact we had always been dismissive of "hair metal" rockers.

Such sad news.

It speaks well of him that the majority of people the media have spoken to since is passing have struggled to hold their tears back, and been full of nothing but praise for a man who made such great noise!

As a punk kid in the '80s I never had much time for Van Halen as a band but I play guitar and recently looked into EVH as a guitarist and what he did.  He was every bit as visionary and talented as any other guitarist.  Probably as influential as Jimi Hendrix in his own way.  An absolute genius and virtuoso.  A really sad loss.

"The Amazing" James Randi, aged 92. He offered a million quid to anyone who could prove they had any real psychic/paranormal powers under laboratory conditions. No one ever claimed it.

He also made a tit out of Uri Geller.

I feel the need to ensure people that a certain story in the upcoming issue of Hallowscream was written by me a few months ago and that the bearded, bespectacled, celebrity sceptic named "James Rawkins" encountering something from 'the other side' in a haunted house is nothing more than an unfortunately timed coincidence. (Probably.)

RIP Mr. Randi.

Spencer Davis. I am in awe of that 60's British blues scene - a couple of dozen guys who changed the face of rock'n'roll, sadly disappearing one by one.

Aw, man. Sorry to hear that. I've seen him on YouTube exposing quite a few con artists who claim to be psychic, and also doing some fairly impressive tricks himself.
