Wolfgang Van Halen has shared a tribute to his dad on what would be Eddie’s 69th birthday.
I wish you were here so I could give you a big hug, go to dinner, celebrate it with you and make a dumb joke about it being your 69th birthday. Just regular shit. I miss hearing you laugh. I miss laughing with you. It’s the little things.
I’ll do my best to keep a smile on my face and think of you today. But then again, that’s not very different than any other day so far without you. I love and miss you more than you could ever possibly know.
Happy birthday, pop.
