Remembering Eddie Van Halen

Legendary Guitar and Musical Innovator Eddie Van Halen 1955-2020

"It's always about the music, never about anything else." - Eddie Van Halen

The world has lost an icon, a virtuoso and master songwriter with the passing of Eddie Van Halen. Considered by many to be the Mozart of rock guitar, Eddie’s talent, drive and passion pushed both the instrument and music further. Eddie was the inspiration for many to take up guitar and responsible for millions of air guitar solos as we were in awe of his mastery.

“If you want to be a rock star or just be famous, then run down the street naked, you'll make the news or something. But if you want music to be your livelihood, then play, play, play and play! And eventually you'll get to where you want to be.”

He was all about the music and his pyrotechnic riffs and solos expanded the vocabulary of Rock music.
Not only was Eddie a phenomenal player but he was responsible for many iconic guitar designs and innovations.

We proudly represent EVH guitars/amps in NZ and all the fine instruments Eddie and his company have created.

We salute and remember the legendary Eddie Van Halen - Rest in Rock!
