Eddie Van Halen Lists His Favorite Riffs

In a recent interview with Billboard, Eddie Van Halen was asked about his favorite riffs. The only stipulation was that he couldn’t list any riffs that he actually wrote.

Van Halen was up for the challenge, however, and he pulled together some classic riffs that resonated with him. Black Sabbath and Cream made the cut, but to see what else Van Halen picked, watch the video after the jump.
