    Eddie Van Halen RIP

    Wolf tweeted the news...



    Eddie Van Halen -- the legendary guitarist and co-founder of Van Halen -- has died after a long battle with throat cancer ... TMZ has learned.

    Sources directly connected to the rock star tell us ... he died at St. Johns Hospital in Santa Monica Tuesday. His wife, Janie was by his side, along with his son Wolfgang and Alex, Eddie's brother and drummer.

    We're told in the last 72 hours Eddie's ongoing health battle went massively downhill -- doctors discovered his throat cancer had moved to his brain as well as other organs.

    As you know, Eddie has been battling cancer for well over a decade. Our sources say he's been in and out of the hospital over the past year -- including last November for intestinal issues -- and recently underwent a round of chemo.

    Last year we reported ... Eddie was flying between the U.S. and Germany for 5 years to get radiation treatment. Though he was a heavy smoker for years, he believes he developed the throat cancer from a metal guitar pick he used to frequently hold in his mouth more than 20 years ago. continues at TMZ.....

    Time to open the vaults...

                    From Wolfgang on Twitter...

                    "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," Wolfgang Van Halen wrote. "He was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment I've shared with him on and off stage was a gift."

                    "My heart is broken and I don't think I'll ever fully recover from this loss," he continued. "I love you so much, Pop."

                      "Edward...thank you."

                      Not surprised, but definitely sad. Thanks for all of the good times your music brought us.

                              Knew this day was coming. Just had a long conversation with a client on mine regarding Eddie. On a skype call I noticed his striped frankenstrat in the background of his office.
                              Obviously we bonded. that was just 45 minutes ago.
