On October 11th a plaque was unveiled to honor guitarist Eddie Van Halen in his hometown of Pasadena, CA. The plaque was placed on a wall outside of the Pasadena Civic Auditorium where Van Halen played many times during the early days before the band became a global force in music.

Council-member Felicia Williams said this to Pasadena Now,

“This event brings together history and community to celebrate a world-renowned artist. It’s not just the history of Eddie as a guitar legend, but also the challenges he faced growing up mixed race in Pasadena, which always spoke to me. And the community support and initiative to make this happen is inspiring. Thank you to everyone!”


The plaque was funded by Pasadena 4 Halen, a group led by Pasadena residents interested in continuing the memory of Van Halen.
