“Big Bad Bill” was made popular when Van Halen included their version of it on the Diver Down album. Fun fact: Eddie and Alex‘s father, Jan, played the clarinet in their recording.
Eddie Van Halen died last week at 65 years old. Van Halen was the music of my youth and I will always regret not getting to see them play in person. It was one of those few bands that I played their cassette tapes through so many times I still know what song comes next. I loved these fun songs they included on their albums.
Rock on, Eddie!
