Entertainment News | Kelly Clarkson, Billboard Music Awards Pay Tribute to Eddie Van Halen: 'A True Giant Was Taken from Us'

Fans of both Van Halen and Crosby seemed pleased with the latter's mea culpa, taking to Twitter to let him off the hook.

Crosby is 79-years-old and a recovering addict... which is to say, it's wholly believable that he forgot Eddie Van Halen just died, especially since he was clearly not a Van Halen fan.

Guns N' Roses manager Alan Niven tells Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon there "was a time apparently when Eddie was so frustrated, and I think this would have been 1983, somewhere around there, that he called Gene Simmons" asking to join Kiss.

Crosby didn't back down in the face of ample of backlash, writing, "Sorry.just meant he does not move me much".

Tulsa postponed due to Bearcats’ COVID-19 issues
The conference said a final decision on the date of the championship game will be made "no earlier than November 1". The football game between the University of Tulsa and Cincinnati has been postponed due to COVID-19 cases.

David Crosby has issued an apology for comments he made about the late Eddie Van Halen that upset people shortly after the rocker's death at age 65. "We do all make mistakes and we need more forgiveness in this world".

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.

Here's hoping this is the end of all this as there are more important things in the world to worry about than what one guitarist thinks of Eddie Van Halen, no matter how accomplished he is.
