    What will become of Ed's company?

    The website has this up:

    RIP EDDIE VAN HALEN
    Posted on October 6, 2020 by Chrissy Mauck

    Legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen passed away this morning at the age of 65, following a hard-fought battle with cancer.

    ďI canít believe Iím having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning,Ē wrote his son, Wolf Van Halen, in a social media post. ďHe was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment Iíve shared with him on and off stage was a gift. My heart is broken and I donít think Iíll ever fully recover from this loss. I love you so much, Pop.Ē

    The revolutionary and trailblazing guitarist was a longtime valued business partner, innovative collaborator and treasured friend to those of us at EVH and FMIC.

    ďWe are heartbroken by this devastating loss, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family,Ē said VP Jeff Cary. ďWe will miss his warm hugs, double-cheek kisses, his humor, the videos or photos he would proudly share of his son, Wolfie, and his tendency to call it like it was. Eddie, thank you for the otherworldly musical legacy you have left behind. We will cherish it, and our memories of you forever. RIP.Ē

    Fender Musical Instruments Corp. CEO Andy Mooney also shared his personal thoughts of the one-of-a-kind guitarist:

    ďThe news of Eddie Van Halenís passing today still seems unreal. Eddie was gracious enough to spend time with me at the studio in his home in L.A. in 2015, not long after I joined Fender. Eddie was prepping for Van Halenís tour that year. I was in awe. We talked for hours. I watched him play in Arizona on the 2015 tour. Eddie was at the top of his game.

    ďEddieís singularly inventive style inspired an entire generation of players. He innovated not only in how he played but what he played and what he played through. He created some of the greatest guitars and amps the world has seen and heard.

    ďEddie will be sorely missed by his legion of fans, as well as the many people at Fender and FMIC he worked with over the years and inspired in so many ways, myself included. Personally, Iíll miss his Christmas cards.

    ďOur thoughts and prayers go out to Eddieís family and friends at this time.Ē

    The company is its own profit generating entity under the Fender umbrella. It was never really ďEddieís companyĒ.

    Itís not going anywhere, nor should it.

    Ok. Then will they stay close to the current product line, or will we see doubleneck Wolfgangs, new pedals, etc.?

    Nothing will happen to the company. First of all, Iím pretty sure Wolf now controls it. And if he doesnít, Janie or Alex has a hand in it. Itís a pretty safe bet that there are contingencies in place for any eventuality.

    Matt Bruck was more or less Ed's partner when it came to EVH Gear. I imagine Matt would still be intimately involved.

    I would hope you are correct. I imagine that wolf and Janie now own the trademarks so I severely doubt that theyíd fold just to do so.

    Iím pretty sure that Wolf has a ton of control and influence now on what is done with his fatherís name.

    They’ll continue to innovate for as long as there is demand for EVH stuff, which will likely be for a long time to come. While I know the guitars are met with mixed reactions (I love mine) but the amps are universally acclaimed.

    As others have said, EVH most likely had plans in place for who would take over his aspects of the company whether it’s his business partners or Wolf/Al. They’ll do what they can to keep building Ed’s legacy for future generations who unfortunately never got to see him play, but discover him and get inspired to try out a guitar.

    I seem to recall a recent story where James Brown (from Peavey 5150 fame), had taken over as the amp guru at EVH. Maybe Ed was getting ready for after his passing?

    I wonder if they'll do a Wolfgang Bass, like they made for Wolf. I'd buy one...

    Wolfgang has said they were trying to market a bass but FMIC shut it down. Iím assuming market research undersold the demand for one.

    Iím glad Wolf and Matt will keep the brand alive. I know Matt was super involved anyway. And Edís standard specs have been settled for the better part of a decade at this point. Spice them up with some more options and they can keep the brand going.

    Back in January, I had bought a new guitar and was thinking of selling my USA Wolf to make some room for it. Had a pretty good deal too but for whatever reason didnít pull the trigger. Needless to say Iím really happy that I didnít do it. Looking forward to seeing how the EVH brand moves forward. Overall Iíve been a big fan of all their gear.

    Donít think you could ask for anything better than Matt Bruck continuing to stay on with EVH. Heís been Edís right hand man for what, almost 30 years now?
