Jack White Plays Rockin' 'SNL' Homage To Eddie Van Halen
Jack White, front man of White Stripes, dedicated his Saturday Night Live appearance to rock legend Eddie Van Halen, who died of cancer on Tuesday at the age of 65.
White used a cobalt blue model that Van Halen had designed for him when he was playing "Lazaretto".
"Eddie was very nice to me and made sure that this guitar was made for me according to my specifications," White previously wrote on Instagram. "I'm not even going to offend the man's talent by trying to play one of his songs tonight. Thanks again, Eddie, for that guitar and rest in peace, sir."
When "Saturday Night Live" ended, the program showed a clip in which Van Halen tore his guitar to pieces while he was on the show in 1987 with the Robert Cray Band. Van Halen's then wife Valerie Bertinelli hosted and introduced the musicians at the time.
"Rest in peace, Eddie Van Halen," said host Bill Burr on Saturday.
