If you missed Adam 12’s marathon, four-hour-plus broadcast tribute to Eddie Van Halen, here are two moments you need to hear.


First up, ROCK 92.9 Program Director Ken West joined Adam 12 live in studio to talk about seeing Van Halen in 1982 for his second-ever live concert, back when he was only 13 years old. The two went on to discuss Eddie’s indelible mark on generations of rock guitar players.


Then, 12 took a call from his friend Bill Bracken, who is a killer guitarist in his own right and an Eddie Van Halen disciple through and through. Bill shared his feelings on the news from the heart.
