All of us here at 94.1 KRNA would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to Eddie Van Halen! One of the GREATEST guitarists of all time turns 62 years old today. It's a big day here at the radio station, we all love Eddie!

According to The Record Industry of America via Wikipedia, "Van Halen is the 19th-best-selling band in United States history, selling 56 million albums the U.S. They were also revealed at number 4 on Billboard's top moneymakers list in 2013."

Eddie Van Halen has influenced an entire generation of guitarists. The man is listed on each and every list of top players of all time. If that's not enough, he's also a great songwriter and a fantastic keyboardist.

To honor Edward Van Halen's 62nd birthday, I'll leave you with one of my favorite Van Halen tunes. It's a live version of the song Summer Night's off of the album 5150. If you run into Ed later today at Hy-Vee, be sure to wish him a Happy Birthday!
