Legendary rocker and guitarist Eddie Van Halen died on Tuesday after a 20-year-long battle with cancer. He was 65.

Halen’s wife, Valerie Bertinelli, son and bandmate, Wolfgang announce the news on social media.

"I can't believe I'm having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning," he shared. "He was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment I've shared with him on and off stage was a gift. My heart is broken and I don't think I'll ever fully recover from this loss. I love you so much, Pop.

Regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Halen was considered a “Superhero” according to Gene Simmons. "My heart is broken," KISS frontman Gene Simmons wrote on Twitter. "Eddie was not only a Guitar God but a genuinely beautiful soul. Rest in peace, Eddie!"

We are extremely saddened to hear of Eddie’s Death and our condolences go out to his family and friends. Rest in peace, Eddie. - Underground Press
