A new mural honoring guitar legend Eddie Van Halen is set to be unveiled on Tuesday to mark what would have been his 66th birthday. Van Halen died in October following a long battle with cancer. L.A. artist Robert Vargas created the mural on the outside wall of Guitar Center’s Sunset Boulevard store in Hollywood, California. The artwork is dubbed, Long Live The King” and depicts Van Halen playing — what else — his guitar.

Vargas said, “This mural is truly for the fans.”

What’s one of the coolest tributes you’ve seen for Eddie since he passed away?
