Eddie Van Halen Honored At Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame


Saturday night's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame took time to pay tribute to Eddie Van Halen, who passed away last month from cancer.

Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave chimed in, saying, "The Mozart of our generation. He had the kind of talent that maybe comes around once a century."

Guns 'N Roses guitarist Slash reflected on Van Halen's influence, saying, "His style and his sound were completely unique to him. He had a massive impact on guitar playing."

Along with paying tribute to Van Halen, the (virtual) ceremony also saw bands Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, T-Rex, and more get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
