Annihilator founder Jeff Waters slammed The American Music Awards for failing to acknowledge the passing of Eddie Van Halen.
Here is what Jeff posted on his social media page:
“I’m usually oblivious to awards shows and the like, unless I hear that a talented musician or band of talented musicians are playing. but I couldn’t possibly ignore this one:
The American Music Awards did not even acknowledge the passing of the greatest guitar player to ever live! How can they pretend to include the ‘Rock’ genre and not even nominate rock bands, let alone ignore Ed‘s passing? Add to this, the SAME NIGHT OF THIS JOKE awards show, AC/DC had the biggest record in North America! WOW!
This is nuts. Wake up, people!
The future generations are going to be stunned at how the masses have acted towards each other, music and the earth! I have faith in humanity, though; stupidity at this unheard of level has to cycle out soon!”
