In 1984 we watched music videos of
Van Halen on MTV.
1984 was the year of
Michael Jackson, Ronald Reagan, Farrah Fawcett,
and Andre the Giant.
Eddie Van Halen died today.
Like the King of Pop, Reagan, Farrah, and Andre,
Eddie no longer walks the earth.
He was 65 years old
and a rock & roll giant.
1984 was only 36 years ago
(which is essentially a lifetime).
Jason Love still lives in New Jersey.
