Eddie Van Halen, arguably the greatest guitar player in the history of rock ‘n roll, passed away on October 6, 2020. In honor of this legendary musician, Fire and Water Records presents a massive tribute to Van Halen. The brothers Neil and Ryan Daly welcome a panel of returning guests and friends of the Fire and Water Network, including Tom Panarese, Omar Uddin, and Chris Zegunis, to celebrate the monstrous, game-changing talent that was Van Halen, from its jaw-dropping debut in 1978 to its chart-topping peaks in 1984 and 1986; from the original lineup with circus ringmaster David Lee Roth, to his more pop-sensitive replacement Sammy Hagar, to… the third lead singer, Gary something. What has Van Halen meant to rock ‘n roll, and where does Eddie belong in the pantheon of rock legends? Tune in to find out on this special episode!
