Died due to heavy smoking and drinking.

Quote:
Eddie Van Halen was dogged by personal and health issues that would intermittently interfere with his work in music over the course of the next decade. A chronic joint problem, exacerbated by his reckless onstage style, forced him to undergo hip replacement surgery in 1999. The onset of cancer — likely the result of heavy smoking — led to the surgical removal of part of his tongue in 2000.
Quote:
Eddie Van Halen’s escalating drug abuse and alcoholism hastened his 2007 divorce from TV actress Valerie Bertinelli, his wife of 16 years, after a protracted separation. He entered rehab in 2007, and was reportedly sober from 2008.

“I was an alcoholic, and I needed alcohol to function,” he said in a 2015 interview with Chuck Klosterman. “I didn’t drink to party. Alcohol and cocaine were private things to me. I would use them for work. The blow keeps you awake and the alcohol lowers your inhibitions. I’m sure there were musical things I would not have attempted were I not in that mental state.”

List of 2020's rock in roll deaths - EVH will be added at the end of this list. The year 2020 is going down as the shittiest year that I can think of at the moment and during my lifetime on earth:

I was never a big Van Halen fan but Eddie was a hell of a guitarist. May he rest in peace and be blessed by God.

Man, I am crushed. I saw VH twice in their heyday. Absolutely amazing. The world has lost one of the greatest guitarists that has ever been...
