Richard Wilkins remembers rock legend Eddie Van Halen: 'An inspiration for generations of guitarists'

  Richard Wilkins remembers rock legend Eddie Van Halen: 'An inspiration for generations of guitarists' For a man who never learned to read music, Eddie Van Halen had a gigantic influence on the world of rock and became an inspiration for generations of guitarists with his blazing solos, catchy riffs and signature 'tapping' technique. Born January 26, 1955, Eddie dived into music by simply watching and listening.

The sequel, which is set after the events of the first film, sees Akeem set to become king of Zamunda and he discovers he has a son in America named Lavelle (Jermaine Fowler), who he knew nothing about.

The plot continues: "Honouring his royal father's (James Earl Jones) dying wish to groom this son as the crown prince, Akeem and Semmi (Arsenio Hall) set off to America once again."

Murphy said: "A lot of people have this expectation, like people would say to me when they found out I was doing it, 'Don't f*** that movie up.'

"So we've gone above and beyond what anybody would think. I'm really, really happy with it."

'Coming 2 America' is directed by Craig Brewer, something that the filmmaker admitted was a dream come true for him as he is such a big fan of the original movie.

He said: "Every day I just want to go back in a time machine and talk to my 16-year-old self and say, 'You'll never guess what you're going to be doing in the future.'"

Tracy Morgan and Wesley Snipes also star in the movie.

'Coming 2 America' is the latest Paramount movie to be sold to a streaming service instead of releasing in the cinema.

'The Trial Of The Chicago 7' and 'The Lovebirds' went to Netflix, while 'Without Remorse' was bought by Amazon.
