After the legendary guitarist of Van Halen, Eddie Van Halen passed away, a memorial honoring him will be considered by the hometown of Eddie Van Halen, the City Council in Pasadena, California, where the band also was formed nearly five decades ago.

As you may remember, Wolfgang Van Halen announced the devastating news on his official Twitter account and stated that his father, Eddie Van Halen, unfortunately, passed away after a long battle with throat cancer two weeks ago.

While this heartbreaking news shocked his fans and everyone from the music industry, farewell messages to the legendary musician were all over every social media platforms. Eddie Van Halen‘s family, friends, fans, and other musicians that appreciated his music throughout the years shared their emotions and remembered Van Halen once again through social media.

While social media was full of messages for Eddie Van Halen after he passed away, the hometown of him and the place where the iconic Van Halen was founded approximately 50 years ago, was also filled with memorials.

His fans left flowers at his childhood home on Las Lunas Street in Pasadena. Additional flowers, candles, and fan mementos were placed on Allen Avenue where Eddie and his brother Alex scratched their band’s name into the wet cement of a sidewalk when they were teenagers.

While Eddie Van Halen‘s fans remember him in every way that they can, the City Council has also revealed that they have been considering creating a memorial to honor Van Halen such as getting a street or alley named in honor of the iconic musician yet they did not give any further or specific details about a date or memorial.

Here is what Randa Schmalfeld said about the City Council’s moves:

“We are delighted that the City Council is moving so quickly to consider a dedicated public space here in Van Halen‘s hometown. We envision a place where fans can forever honor and celebrate the brilliance of Eddie Van Halen and the phenomenal success of Pasadena’s hometown band.

The overwhelmingly positive response to our campaign demonstrates the desire of our community to honor Eddie and his bandmates. We are hopeful that the council will decide in our favor and we are looking forward to the next steps in forever honoring Pasadena’s favorite rock stars!”
