Wish he had been more productive in the last 20 years. Their quality level while active was remarkably high. Very high success to dud ratio despite the different directions he took.

 

I think he fought the cancer for a long time.

Obviously he can't play guitar like his father but he's an exceptionally gifted musician.

I didn't think that was obvious.  His son could be better than dad for all I know.

That would be a tall order. If he's 10% of his dad, he'd be very good.

Yes, but Eddie was pretty whacked out of his mind in the 2000s:

Clearly much of it was self-inflicted. Wasted time. I'm sure he had much more music to give.

I’ll never forget the 1984 concert. Great seats. I wish I had kept the t shirt.

I bet you could get $150+ for the shirt if you had it.

Around late September I was thinking of building an old Flying V kit I've had around since 2008.  I figured I'd design it be in the style of Eddie's original "Franken-Strat".  Never seen him play a V before, so I thought that it'd be an interesting build.  After a few weeks of painting, sanding, etc.  I've reached the point where I can start to put it together. Here's the back on front shots of it.  It's a bit rough looking, but I'm fine with that as it "gels" with the original designs' "finish".
