The post Alex Van Halen to His Late Brother Eddie: “See You on the Other Side” appeared first on Consequence of Sound.
Alex Van Halen has acknowledged the passing of his bandmate and brother, Eddie Van Halen, with a brief statement to media outlets. The drummer also shared a charming photo of the two of them as children.
In keeping with the short tributes that have already been posted by Eddie’s other Van Halen bandmates, Alex simply wrote, “Hey Ed. Love you. See you on the other side. Your brother, Al.” The heartwarming photo depicts Alex standing up in overalls while a toddler-aged Eddie sits on a rocking horse and plays a toy drum.
Thus far, there has not been an official band statement regarding Eddie’s death, but Alex’s message follows social media tributes from recent and former Van Halen members David Lee Roth, Michael Anthony, Sammy Hagar, Gary Cherone, and Wolfgang Van Halen.
Alex and Eddie were both born in Amsterdam before moving with their family to Pasadena, California, in 1962. The brothers formed their legendary band in 1972, first dubbing themselves Genesis, then Mammoth, before settling on Van Halen.
