Rock ‘n’ roll guitarist Eddie Van Halen, co-founder of the eponymous band Van Halen, is dead at 65.

Van Halen died after a decadelong battle with throat cancer at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica Tuesday with his wife, Janie, son, Wolfgang, and brother, Alex, at his side, reports TMZ.

Van Halen formed the band in 1972 with his brother, Alex, on drums and David Lee Roth as lead singer. Sammy Hagar joined the band in 1985 on lead vocals after Roth left.

Considered by many to be one of the best rock guitarists in the business, Eddie Van Halen’s guitar was the basis for the band’s many hits, among them “Runnin’ with the Devil,” “Unchained,” “Hot for Teacher,” “Panama” and “Jump.”

Van Halen was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.

“He was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment I’ve shared with him on stage and off stage was a gift,” his son, Wolf, wrote on social media Tuesday. “My heart is broken and I don’t think I’ll ever fully recover from this loss.”

“I love you so much, Pop,”

Vicksburg native Wesley Glass aka Wheezy has made a big name for himself in the music business these days as he has now been working with major rap artists and producing many hit records.

Wheezy was born and raised in Vicksburg but also has ties to Atlanta. He attended Vicksburg High School where he maintained a passion for music in his teenage years, which would soon lead him to finding a career in the music industry.

“I started working with Shad Da God from Hustle Gang,” Wheezy said to Complex.

Since working with Shad Da God, Wheezy has now worked with many other artists which has given him a big name in the industry.

In 2016, Wheezy began working on rap star Young Thug’s album Barter 6 which produced many hit records as his name continued to grow and all of his hard work was paying off. He still continues to work heavily with Young Thug and most recently on his 2019 “So Much Fun” album.

With all of the work Wheezy has been doing over the years with Young Thug, he still manages to work with plenty of other artists as he creates beats and produces hit records that many fans enjoy.

As of now, some of the big name artist that Wheezy has worked with are Young Thug, Future, Meek Mill, 21 Savage, Migos, Gunna, Drake, Lil Gotit, Drake, and many more which has helped him become a brand in the industry.

Wheezy also works on music with his older brother FlyGuy Tana who is also from Vicksburg and has records that Wheezy has produced. Shad Da God was also featured on one of FlyGuy Tana’s songs, “Spare None”, which Wheezy helped produce.

At the rate Wheezy is going in the music industry, he will become a legend in the game and he has already made a tremendous impact on music at the age of 27. The city of Vicksburg is more than happy to have a native doing so well in the music world and Wheezy will continue to have fans supporting him back home.
