Eddie Van Halen’s hometown has decided to honor the late guitarist with a memorial — although it hasn’t decided exactly what that memorial will be. The Pasadena City Council on Monday voted to move forward with a tribute to its hometown hero, directing a committee to come up with ideas. Among those being considered are commissioning a statue, renaming a city building, putting up a plaque and renaming a street, according to the meeting’s minutes. Pasadena actually has one memorial already in place: the sidewalk outside a liquor store, where a teenage Eddie Van Halen wrote his name when the cement was still wet. Van Halen, 65, died of throat cancer on October 6th.
