The influence and importance of the late Eddie Van Halen will be acknowledged during a US TV special honouring the 2020 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees on Saturday, November 7.
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Rage Against The Machine man Tom Morello will pay tribute to Eddie Van Halen’s legacy during the show. Van Halen passed away, aged 65, on October 6, due to complications from a two decade battle with cancer.
It was announced in March that the 2020 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony, due to be held on May 2, would be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The TV special being staged in its place will be broadcast on HBO at 8 pm ET.
Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode are among the artists being inducted into the Hall Of Fame this year. Trent Reznor admitted earlier this year that he always considered the whole concept “absurd”, but was now “quite honoured” that his group were being included.
“It is just nice to see a bunch of people celebrating music as the primary thing,” he told Rolling Stone. “It felt legit.”
