Some dude on the internet has erased Eddie Van Halen’s keyboard parts from Jump and it’s winning him no friends

What’s the first sound that comes into your head when someone mentions Van Halen’s 1984-era smash hit single Jump? For the vast majority of us, that’ll be the late, great Eddie Van Halen’s instantly-identifiable keyboard stabs, which run throughout the song, the Californian quartet’s sole US number one single.

Given the song’s iconic status, and its hallowed status among Van Halen fans, surely only an extremely brave or exceedingly foolish individual would choose to wipe most of EVH’s keyboard parts from the song, which is exactly what YouTuber John Connor has done, for reasons best known to himself.
