Eddie Van Halen Honored At 2020 Billboard Music Awards

The late Eddie Van Halen was honored during last night’s (October 14) Billboard Music Awards in Los Angeles, California. Organizers of the ceremony played a clip of Van Halen performing “Panama” during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards and followed it with a shot of a Frankenstrat guitar under a spotlight. Kelly Clarkson hosted the show and she had the following to say about the legendary guitarist: “Just a few days ago, a true giant was taken from us: Eddie Van Halen. He was a legendary guitarist, an amazing musician and an incredible songwriter.” After the “Panama” clip, she added: “That moment is one that all who saw will always remember.”
