Today's episode for me was a difficult one. On October 6th, we lost one of the greatest musicians to ever live, Eddie Van Halen. The amount of tributes that have been produced for this legend are numerous, so I knew that I needed to be patient with mine and not rush it. I'm thankful I did. What you're going to hear is my probably unlike many others since I don't focus on the Roth years. I wanted to be a little different. So I decided to dive deep into the post-Roth era and curate my ten favorite songs from this later era of the band that also highlight the greatness of EVH. All of these songs are special to me and I know that true Van Halen fans will appreciate hearing these deeper cuts from this era.
