David Crosby of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young shared a brutally honest opinion on the late Eddie Van Halen, saying that the music of the late guitarist simply wasn’t for him.
When asked by a fan on social media, “What’s your opinion on Eddie Van Halen,” Crosby simply responded: “Meh…”
Crosby later added: “Hendrix changed the world of guitar. Nobody else really… look I get it… many of you loved Van Halen… and the one time I met he was nice… and he was talented…
L.A. Guns guitarist Tracii Guns slammed Crosby, writing: “Wrong answer as f*ck and rude as f*ck!!! There are better ways to say you don’t care for someone’s music. That was very disrespectful. And yes straight out f*ck you and your smug answer.”
Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick added: “I appreciate @thedavidcrosby too much for this to get in the way, but a much better answer would have been: ‘I know he meant a lot to so many but his sound & style just weren’t my thing.’”
