While performing onstage with his namesake band, Eddie Van Halen was famous for flying through the air, legs splayed, slashing out stinging riffs on his customised Stratocaster.

The death of Eddie Van Halen from throat cancer, aged 65, brings to a close one of the most colourful and lucrative sagas in American rock music. If Aerosmith was the premier US hard rock band of the s, it was Van Halen who stepped into their shoes during the 80s. Formed around the Van Halen brothers, the guitarist Eddie and the drummer Alex, the band rode a tidal wave of multi-platinum albums over a year period. Few other acts have come close to matching their commercially combustible mixture of spectacular and addictive rock, flamboyant stage performances and outsized personal behaviour.
B efore Eddie Van Halen, if one word defined rock guitar aspiration it was this one: blues. Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin was a bluesman to his core, albeit one with a weakness for elfin mysticism. Rock went best with a frown or a scowl: serious business.
