National Guitar Museum Honors Eddie Van Halen With “Lifetime Achievement Award”

The National Guitar Museum has honored the late great Eddie Van Halen with their “Lifetime Achievement Award.” This is the first time that the award was presented in memoriam. The museum issued the following statement:

“It is perhaps fitting that we don’t need to explain why Eddie is deserving of such an honor everyone who has ever heard his guitar playing knows. Eddie certainly would have received this award at some point in the future, as it seemed that he still had a lifetime of guitar greatness to give. Several of the people we’ve honored over the past decade have left us in the years since we presented them with the award. In this case, however, the sadness of Eddie Van Halen’s passing is somehow harder to accept. Thanks, Eddie. We only wish we could deliver this in person.”
