Eddie Van Halen and Musical Genius

Apparently, Eddie Van Halen was god-like in the guitar world. But why? Was Van Halen a fast guitar player? Yes. Very fast. But, was he a good guitar player? By many accounts, he was only so-so, talent-wise; his guitar solos were at times catchy, but not at all historic.

We live in a world today where being fast equals being brilliant. That’s just not true.
