I don't really have much to add other than EVH was one of my heroes and I learned a ton of his songs on guitar. Some of those riffs are so badass to play.

Best ever distorted guitar tone.
Amazing creativity and technique with the tapping stuff.
He forever changed how the guitar is played and it can't be overstated what he did for the instrument.

As far as guitar legends go its Hendrix and EVH as the 1) and 1A) and then everyone else.

And I got to see the band at what ended up being their last ever show. It was the reunion tour with David Lee Roth back in 2015 at the Hollywood Bowl. David Lee Roth's singing was terrible but Eddie, Wolfgang, and Alex were locked in. Alex especially surprised me. He's a great drummer.

Damn, that's nuts. Not a huge VH fan either but he was always amazing on the guitar.

They just keep coming: Johnny Nash has passed, at 80 years of age.

I can't believe I'm the one posting this, but Izumi Matsumoto, creator the Kimagure Orange Road manga died 2 days ago at age 61. It was never one of my favorites back in the day (cute, but a very distant second to Maison Ikkoku) but it has been in my queue to give an other go since the BD was released.

Anthony Chisholm, 77. Broadway, TV and film actor of considerable acclaim, but I knew him from HBO's Oz as gang boss Burr Redding. Even if you don't remember his character's name (I didn't! blurs together a bit, does later Oz for me), you'll almost certainly remember this scene opposite poor Method Man. Blimey that was hardcore. :shock:

Actually, now I think about it, I wonder if Boardwalk Empire deliberately reprised it with Chalky White slapping on the Giallo gloves and choking the living dogshit outta that Italian thug. Hmm.
