Eddie Van Halen died Tuesday morning after a long battle with throat cancer. He was 65.

This according to a tweet from the guitarist's son Wolfgang Van Halen, who sent the following tweet this morning:

"I can't believe I'm having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning. He was the best father I could have ever asked for. Every moment I've shared with him on and off stage was a gift," Wolfgang Van Halen said on Twitter.

Edward Lodewijk Van Halen was a Dutch-American musician, songwriter, producer, and inventor. He was the main songwriter and founder-with brother and drummer Alex Van Halen, bassist Mark Stone, and singer David Lee Roth-of the American rock band Van Halen.


"I can't believe I'm having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning. He was the best father I could have ever asked for. Every moment I've shared with him on and off stage was a gift," Wolfgang Van Halen said on Twitter.
