Yesterday we lost two artists from different parts of the musical spectrum

Rocker and guitarist Eddie Van Halen aged 65 probably best known for "Jump"

Reggae singer Johnny Nash best know for "I can see clearly now"

The soundtrack of my youth gets ever quieter.

It's ironic that EVH might be best known for Jump but I never liked that song. I always thought it has the weediest, most feeble synthesiser sound ever put on record. The guitar break is good, but that's all.


He also did the guitar on Michael Jackson's Beat it. That definitely sounds good.
