David Crosby sheepishly backtracks on that ‘meh’ about Eddie Van Halen

Check out what's clicking today in entertainment.

As you know, the Van Halen co-founder died after a long battle with throat cancer on October 6.

The Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young singer, who is 79, had further upset fans prior to his apology tweet by seemingly doubling down on his criticism over Eddie, noting that the rocker was "not for me".

Eddie still continued to live his life to the fullest following his diagnosis, still attending concert and rehearsing music with his song, Wolfgang, who joined Van Halen as their bassist in 2016.

Crosby also retweeted someone who wrote, "I'm a Van Halen fan for sure, but I can also understand your "meh" response to mean that he wasn't your cup of tea, but you didn't mean to disrespect a recently deceased person".

To the surprise of no one, David Crosby is quickly backtracking on his "meh" comment about the late Eddie Van Halen.

Van Halen's son, Wolf, took to Twitter on October 6, a few days before Crosby's "meh" tweet, to announce that his father had died after a lengthy battle with cancer.

In tribute to EVH, the 2020 BBMAs aired one of Van Halen's rare TV awards show performances, a clip from the 2015 Billboard Music Awards featuring Van Halen ripping through their No. 13 Hot 100 hit "Panama" in Las Vegas.
