Jack White Pays Tribute To Eddie Van Halen On “Saturday Night Live”

During his performance on “Saturday Night Live” last night (October 10), Jack White paid tribute to the late Eddie Van Halen by playing “Lazaretto” with a cobalt blue model guitar that was designed by the legendary guitarist. White said the following about that:

“I thought it could be a nice gesture for me to use this blue Eddie Van Halen model guitar for one of the songs tonight on SNL. The guitar was designed by Eddie (with a few customizations I had added). Eddie was very kind to me and saw to it that this guitar was made for me to my specs. I wont even insult the man’s talent by trying to play one of his songs tonight. Thanks again Eddie for this guitar and rest in peace sir.”
