Roth said earlier this year he highly doubted that Eddie would hit the road again. He said “if you want to hear the Van Halen classics, you’re looking at the person to bring them.”
EVH passed away earlier today (Tuesday, October 6) at the age of 65. He had been battling throat cancer and died surrounded by friends and family at a Santa Monica, California hospital, according to TMZ. He is survived by his second wife Janie, brother Alex and son Wolfgang.
We send prayers to the Van Halen family during this tragic time.
