The Eddie Van Halen tributes continue and it’s not just from musicians. Diego Marinho – a freelance freehand and realism drawing artist from Brazil – has released a video featuring his recreation of a classic Eddie photo taken by Neil Zlozower.
Here’s what Diego posted (translated from Portugues to English) along with the video, which you can watch above:
01/26/1955 – 10/06/2020 † Eddie Van Halen, one of the greatest guitarists in rock history, died on October 6, 2020 at age 65 after spending 5 years battling throat cancer. He was elected the best guitarist of all time, by a poll promoted by Guitar World magazine, which had almost 500 thousand votes. He was voted the 8th best guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. It also helped popularize the guitar solo technique known as tapping, allowing fast arpeggios to be played with both hands on the fretboard. Rest in peace, a simple tribute from the channel to the myth.
