And, quickly, tributes began pouring in.

And people all over the world have been left heartbroken.

He had been battling the disease for over a decade, and his journey finally came to an end at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica.

Eddie had been quite active on social media.

People have just noticed his “touching” final Instagram post.

Alongside the caption: “Happy Birthday Al!! Love Ya!!”

Saturday Night Live have paid a heartwarming tribute to the guitar great on last night’s episode.

And instead of using his own guitar, he used a cobalt blue model designed by Van Halen for White himself while performing his song, ‘Lazaretto’.

Host of the show, Bill Burr, also paid tribute to Van Halen, saying: “Rest in peace, Eddie Van Halen.”

There was yet another tribute to the man himself, a short clip of a young Van Halen shredding with the Robert Cray Band back in February 1987, back when Van Halen’s ex-wife Valerie Bertinelli hosted the sketch series.

It’s obvious just how much influence Van Halen had, not only on the music world, but on the world as a whole.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends during this terrible time. As this turbulent year rattles on, let’s take a second to look back at all the famous faces we have tragically lost this year.
