The tributes keep pouring in following the death of Eddie Van Halen.
Eddie Van Halen died on Tuesday after a long battle with cancer.
He founded Van Halen in 1972 with his brother Alex, David Lee Roth, and Michael Anthony.
AC/DC guitarist Angus Young says, "Eddie was a guitar wonder, his playing pure wizardry. To the world of music he was a special gift."
Metallica also released a statement saying they considered Eddie, "an inspiration, an idol, and after spending a summer together on the road in '88, a friend."
