Hear Our New Podcast Tribute to Eddie Van Halen

The new episode of Rolling Stone Music Now pays tribute to the late Eddie Van Halen, with never-before-heard audio from a 2008 interview with the guitarist that traces his early years as a musician and beyond. Why did the electric guitar last so long as rock’s defining instrument? “You can’t bend the strings of a piano,” Van Halen says.

The episode also includes a discussion between host Brian Hiatt and Van Halen scholar Greg Renoff (author of the revelatory book Van Halen Rising, on the group’s origins, as well as co-author of longtime producer Ted Templeman’s autobiography). In addition, we play clips of Gene Simmons, Steve Vai, and Tom Morello’s recent thoughts on Van Halen’s passing, courtesy of Rolling Stone‘s David Browne and Patrick Doyle.
