It’s already been two years – 6 October 2020 – since EDDIE VAN HALEN (born Edward Lodewijk Van Halen in Amsterdam, The Netherlands) guitar expert and co-founder of mega rock band Van Halen passed away following a stroke. The band made/released 12 studio LPs between 1978 and 2012.
Their 1996 single JUMP was a giant hit, as we know it
(almost 640 million streams on Spotify).

Masterly drummer GINGER BAKER (born Peter Edward Baker in London) passed away
on 6 October 2019, at the age of 80, following heart surgery and a terrible fall. He’s best know as member of the three-star rock band Cream which only lasted for 2 years (1966-1968).
Baker melted jazz and African rhythms and pioneered both jazz fusion and world
music. He hated to be called ‘rock drummer’. Following the split of Cream he drummed
with supergroup Blind Faith, formed his own act called Ginger Baker’s Air Force, and collaborated with multiple artists.
