    Yeah. I'm surprised about some of the comments and articles I've read about how Ed wasn't familiar with the music world around him.

    I recall reading an article that he had an interaction with Paul Simon and had never heard "The Sounds of Silence" before. That's odd. Ed was well into the music scene (as a listener/budding performer) when it came out.

I remember an older interview with Sammy when he was in the band, where he was surprised by the fact that Eddie knew none of the new hotshot guitar players of the 80s. I mean he knew Vai, who was a friend, and Satch. And maybe Yngwie. But that's it.
    Not really sure how anybody here can say who and what Eddie was into musically... No one here knew him personally...

    Who would of though Ed like Peter Gabriel... I cant see why he wouldn't of liked SRV
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    Yes he knew Yngwie because in one interview Sammy said he played him some to Eddie and I think Eddie said "that guy is fast"

    He did like the guy from Bryan Adams.

    I would love it if Wolfgang would or could reveal what Eddie said about any newer guitarists or bands. I know his last album was Thomas Dolby or Peter Gabriel but I am sure Eddie at least commented to him about Wolfgangs favorite bands. Like what did Eddie think of the Tool show? I am sure he at least listened to some of it before hand or could offer an opinion of what he liked. Same with Tremonti. Wolfgang played for them live and he went to a show. I am sure he checked them out. He may have listened to Smashing Pumpkins after meeting Billy Corgan for that great interview.

    I can't imagine that when Wolfgang was excited by some music or a band, Eddie simply said "you know me if its after the So album, I can't comment on it"

    Obviously don't want to reveal if his dad said "man I know you like Marc Tremonti but I don't hear it and Jack White? What is with him and using all those effects?"

    Just would be cool to hear a bit more insight than what we got from Eddie

    I remember reading somewhere that after the Tool show, Ed specifically was impressed with Justin Chancellor's bass playing.

    Eddie seemed to really open up to a lot of rock music and musicians in the mid-90's onwards. I knew he was aware of and been possibly influenced at least in regards to "tone-chasing" with guitarist Geordie from Killing Joke (who Eddie saw with Tool in 2019). I saw Eddie at what was then Nine Inch Nails final show at the Wiltern in 2009 and I believe he saw other shows there around that time including The Strokes and Metallica.

    Never understood the people who revere him as a player. All sounds the same to me. Agree it’s a distinct sound but it literally sounds like he’s playing a variation of same thing on every song. Not a virtuoso hate his technique and if he’s influencing anyone, I don’t know who. (Thank God) He’s nothing like Vai, Johnson, Page, Hendrix and of course Ed. You know it’s them 2 seconds into a song but only because of their unique tone, phrasing, technique etc... They DO NOT sound like they are playing literally the same thing with subtle or nuanced changes.

    Rick Baeto seems to like him and I’m not a player. So maybe there’s something there beyond my ear or knowledge. What can’t be disputed is my subjective dislike for his playing! HA!

    The Edge is a painter like the rest of emí.

    He just has a different technique.

    The thing about The Edge to me is if there was an acoustic guitar and he was playing it, you never would know who it was. Eddie picks up an acoustic and you know within about 15 seconds along with any other great guitarist.

    Their personality comes through the strings. Not the effects

    The Edge is a composer more than a player in my opinion.

    The Edge is not a player like others, but man, some great tunes in their catalog...

    New Years Day
    Pride (In the Name of Love)
    With or Without You
    Where the Streets Have No Name
    One

    That’s just a few...

    I know not everyone likes them, but I think he was incredibly creative with his use of rhythm, effects, tone and dynamics.
