Tonight’s mystery artist had one of his most famous guitar solos picked up by  a Universal Studios for a movie cartoon character.  Any idea who he is the movie or character who played the solo??

If there is one thing you can say for Eddie Van Halen the man's guitar prowess puts him in some odd company.  From playing free for Michael Jackson to having his musical styling taught at music colleges to being the sound behind Stuart's guitar solo in the 2015 movie 'Minions'.  Eddie's  explosive guitar solo that turned the music world on its ear in 1978, made an entertaining appearance near the end of “Minions,” a prequel/spinoff to the “Despicable Me” franchise.

Here is Eddie's version with tonight's featured song

Here is Stuart's Version
