BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Following the death of Eddie Van Halen, a couple of our friends at 97 Rock joined us to share their memories of the guitar legend.
Van Halen was 65 when he lost his battle with cancer on Tuesday morning. His son, Wolfgang, announced his death on Twitter.
Van Halen also had ties to people here in Western New York. He and Bills Hall Of Fame Quarterback Jim Kelly were friends.
The video above is from Kelly’s golf tournament called StarGaze back in the early 90s.
Van Halen participated along with many other athletes and celebrities.
