Eddie Van Halen Mural Unveiled On His Birthday

A large Eddie Van Halen mural on the side of Hollywood’s Guitar Center on Sunset Strip was unveiled on what would have been his 66th Birthday.

The artwork was done by local muralist Robert Vargas & takes up the entire outer back wall of the backside entrance of Guitar Center in Hollywood. The mural is 17 feet tall by 105 feet wide and features Eddie with his famous Frankenstrat guitar.

Vargas is a huge fan of Eddie since he was a kid and said as soon as he heard of Eddie’s passing he knew he wanted to commemorate & memorialize him. Guitar Center was gracious enough to allow Vargas to use the wall for the mural. Vargas said that Hollywood Sunset Strip was an obvious location as that’s where the band got their start.
