Alex Van Halen's brother Eddie Van Halen is regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. He was also a founding member of the band Van Halen.

Halen brothers Alex and Eddie together with the other two members had formed a band called Mammoth in 1972, which they later renamed Van Halen. Eddie acted as a guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist for the band performances.

He is primarily known for the two-handed fret-board tapping he performed with his guitar, allowing him to create unique sounds for his genre of music. 

The flamboyant stage presence of the band can largely be attributed to Eddie and his explosive guitar style. His personal technique, playing notes at speed and creating unexpected effects, made impression on the record label owners of that time. He also created several patent devices for the guitar while Eddie's performance with Michael Jackson in 1983 for Beat It, had also given him extra launch pads.
