"Relationship between Eddie and Dave and David Lee Roth. I'm sure when you write a book about Edward, you can't not be writing a lot about Roth and Sammy to an extent too, but by the time Sammy got in the band Van Halen was a legitimate, huge arena rock band. When Dave was in the band, that's when they became like we said, Van Halen, this cultural phenomenon that basically changed rock and roll forever. What's the relationship between those two throughout the different times in Eddie's life, even up until the end? Well, I think from the start and in fact, throughout, I would say it was a marriage of convenience. I mean, Dave could turn down twice for Van Halen. We went over to the house. He's saying they were like, Jesus, Christ, no. I mean, after they turned them on the first time, Alex was like, you know what, that kid stopped something. So we'll get him a second shot. Right. And he said, he brought him back over again. He said he was even worse. Then you don't get the hell out of here. Dave really wanted it. He the Van Halen's wanted to be a musician. They have wanted to be a rockstar. And he knew that that was they were his ticket out of Pasadena. Yeah. When he got kicked to the curb by the brothers, then he formed his own band Red Bull Jeff. And he said, you know, himself like his whole motivation man was to Trump the van healing into the church, you know, and I should have proved that this is the only show in time. You know, it's interesting to hear people like really near and he's guitar tech talking about those days. I think what he said, something like he said, all the girls went down to see raw, all the boys went down to watch the girls, they were at the hit rock, you know, and they all knew they all knew it got something, and he was such a shameless peacock of a man. You know, I was talking to them still be Simmons who used to write for science and then should be journalists. You know, some books from Leonard Cohen and Neil Young and people like captain mojo now and some really respect millions, but to each of you and did a lot of interviews with them. On the Laura canyon when she was in LA in the 70s. And she guesses that look, David Lee Roth, what a slut. He's creating he's got a treasures undone. He's got a chance. You know what I've been utterly shameless there is nothing he won't do to get attention. And that works, you know, and he's the ultimate front man. The ultimate front man, you know, Thor in a part of two sides of two small spandex, you know? Yeah, that's right. I'm just a walk in exclamation mark of a man. So I mean, I think they didn't, there wasn't a lot of love between the two of them at the start. But what I will say is that any recognized theme for the capacity for hard work, they studied together not deliberately, but they ended up together in Pasadena city college for studying music theory, but they studied under professor who was adamant that they should learn all the musical theory. Purely so that they could then ignore it. And that was his whole thing. Learn the rules. And how you should live your life and everything, we have become back home and Alex said, you know, they're coming back three or four in the morning and after a gig would still be there. It's like 9 o'clock. It's 30 a.m. with our hands propped up on the deck. And they said, rafter was the same. And they said, some of the people in the class were sort of sneering towards and be like, oh, you know, get these dead beats coming in after a night doing whatever, and he said, you know, we put the hours in and roll off with the hours into and like I say, I'm out of the convenience, like, raw, what is that he could do? He couldn't do. And adding news that what he could do was nothing without this film star stroke rockstar stroke at his side. Attention seeking man child to think out of the prison one point. And yeah, so all along the restriction. You know what I mean? It's sort of well known that a sort of almost wanted either of the band as early as 81. Oh, really? Yeah. I mean, after he got married to Valerie, I think the so much, I guess you'd call it nice snark, but so much of the bitch in and so much whispers behind him. And I guess, you know, one of the things if you've read Dave's book, truly should be your reprint at some point, because it's an absolute master. Oh, yeah. Yeah, he needs to do a rewrite of that one for sure. Yeah, I mean, by the way, to be filed in the fiction section rather than nonfiction is entirely different matter, but exactly. It's one of the parts that I drew upon in the book and drew attention to is when Valerie first showed up in three ports to meet the band to present them with M and ms as a joke from the promoter. And Dave and his book said, you know, oh, I kind of ignored her and then she went me to beeline street for Eddie's bathroom in a sort of like, you know, I didn't even know who she was. He's kind of like now. I could have had her first. Yeah, this mighty little thing that I wouldn't have had anything to do with. And you think, okay, well, you can be a bit more gracious about that. So then even the wedding dean refused to be the groom's best man. He was like, oh, you know, buy you a suit, but I'm not going to play second penalty you Edwards. You're writing one. At his own wedding? Yeah. It's good to petition off the cocaine..

"A bunch of extra interviews himself, even spoken Sammy Hagar, and lots of current musicians, the new Eddie and toured with the band. You hear what Ozzy had to say. He's a butler. I'm talking about Van Halen opening for Sabbath in the UK and how they got blown away, but also interviewed Eddie Van Halen when the three record came out. It talks about what it was like sitting down with Edward at 51 50 at that kind of a crossroads for EV H at that point in time. Paul shares stories about Eddie's early years and childhood, Van Halen's early tourism recordings and what life was like for Eddie after the 1984 album. His relationships with David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar, which is also coincided on so I was supposed to go see David Lee Roth this weekend in Las Vegas. He canceled all his shows and we don't really know why. Hopefully, Dave is okay. But we're also going to talk about why Van Halen and Eddie didn't release any new material for the last 20 years or so of Eddie's life. It's a great conversation about Eddie Van Halen and it starts now on talk is Jericho. All right, we'll just go right into it. It's a little comedy of errors to get this rolling, but that's kind of the Van Halen way. Never take yourself too seriously and when it's time to rock, you rock and that's what we got. So we're gonna do a pull brand again today who wrote a really cool book about sir Edward Van Halen, it's called unchained. Possibly the first biography of the entire life of Eddie Van Halen, I would think Paul. Yes, I believe so. There have been other books in the past, I guess this one is the first one that takes it from birth to death, sadly. Yeah. You know, there was a long time in the making. It was actually supposed to be out, but years ago. Yeah, it wasn't intended as a life to death biography, but that's how it's worked out unfortunately. What made you decide to write a book about Eddie? Well, I think it was just sort of the sort of idea of the American Dream really was what captured me. I mean, you had this little kid, came over from Europe, almost. I think the family came to America with $75. Obviously, they come to California. Eddie has a mind blown by California. And then proceeds to take that vision of America all over the world. You know, it's funny that we had this little kid from Europe selling the American Dream back to the world with him being an immigrant as well. In fact, all of them came from an immigrant family raft, talked about their sort of immigrant hunger and energy. And so perhaps that played a part of that they all knew poverty certainly a little David Ross. Had money there's immediate family, but yeah, they all knew hard times. To me, you know, the teenager in the 80s. We finally had the walls of America. I mean, this is England in there when I grew up in Ireland, but I didn't in the early 1980 three TV channels. Not a lot of good news for coming to us on those three channels, but Van Halen offered this in a vision of color and excitement and freedom, liberation and indulgence, I guess. So there was a lot to like about Van Halen when you were a little nerd growing up in Ireland. Yeah, well, it really is like you said a Gene Simmons talks about it too quite a bit how, you know, he is the epitome of the American Dream and that you don't have to be American to achieve these dreams. And I think that's a lot of people forget the fact or maybe don't even realize that Eddie is not only an immigrant, like you said a Dutch father, but his mother is also a Filipino correct. He was actually Indonesian. Indonesian. Right. They met the art in Indonesia. And to be honest, the racism that she experienced in Holland was part of the sort of driving force the impetus for them to go to California because she was an office worker than Indonesia. But when she came back to Holland to live with Jan and obviously the kid subsequently, she wasn't able to get a job of that stature. You know, she was going to be able to get cleaning jobs and jobs that weren't really of the same pay grades he'd been used to. So with some of the no prospect journey in Holland, they saw the choice of me to come to California where she had relatives and they were saying, this is bad, or we can do this. A land of opportunity, obviously then they move to pass a deal and find it wasn't all, you know, goals under the pavements, either, but they certainly worked hard and they all worked in what the guests would be described as media jobs to advise the meaning term. But they all worked hard. They all could have shifted. So yeah, they Eddie and Alex knew what it was to work even before they joined the band. Yeah, it's funny because I think like I said, whenever you hear that, you're like, oh, that makes sense because Alex was more specifically than added to they do have kind of the Asian eyes, which, you know, as part of they have a very exotic look, you know, those guys, and that's like, oh, that makes sense 'cause their mother like you said was Indonesian..

"Tub. That's how John Mayer writes all his songs. Really sitting on the floor of his bathroom? Asked Jessica too. So okay, so your husband that you also talk about in your book, he's Dutch. Very. Do you speak Dutch? Have you picked up any Dutch? You know, it's recommendation Ellen. Okay. I hate it. I don't really, you know. I can do that. I can do it to me. Who is that? What does that mean? It's just hi. How are you? Yeah. Do you like that salty, black licorice? What's his name? Mom Joe. I don't like licorice. I have no, it's sort of like people with cilantro. I do love coriander. But I can't do licorice. It just makes me fold like a fitted sheet. How many times 'cause she fold will figure it out. Many times. And you put the corners in together? Okay. Michelle, are you ready for your ask me another challenge? I hope so. I have my good exercise Braun. Good? Yeah, it is a workout. Your husband was born in the Netherlands. So you kind of know about some Dutch stuff? Yeah. Strap in. Jonathan Colton is going to lead this game. In a game we called Holland Opus we have changed the lyrics to Van Halen songs to make them about famous things developed in or associated with the Netherlands. This makes no sense. Why did he do this? Because Alex Van Halen were born there. To earn the point, all you have to do is name the thing that I'm singing about or the Van Halen song that I'm parodying. Oh my God, I'm gonna be doing these Van Halen songs in the way they were intended on an acoustic guitar. Of course. If you don't know either of those things you can just explain to us the difference between Holland and the Netherlands. Okay. Okay, here we go. Oh, wow, it's hot. That's the problem with Van Halen. It's.

"Van. Halen that you. You know what. I'll tell you one of the things that used to frustrate the hell out of me about seeing van. Halen live always was frustrated by david. Lee roth i always wished that he would like really focus and concentrate on the lyrics instead of the dancing in pandering to the crowd and whatnot. You know so that used to they used to frustrate me and the reality of it is is as time went by in this probably because you know whiskey drinking smoking pot us in and really kind of screaming your young years as you get older. Your body can't handle that stuff. David lee roth lost his voice. Any never fucking got it back but one of the things that we haven't talked about. Have you ever listened to the van. Halen reunion album a different kind of truth. No this some good stuff on there. I'll probably never listened to it. Thank you thank you very much to say. What about the gary sharon years. Oh the year mismatch. And it's it's too bad. Gary talented guy. But the problem with that record was wasn't gary sharon's vocals or how we fit in the band or not. It was the songwriting worrying for japan. That was it. They never toured japan. no they they. They played the states but he wanted they. They never went to japan so he took them. They went to japan with him and unfortunately japan saw him. Which they probably didn't care is is that true. I can't believe that van halen never played japan from what i understand. That was the thing they had never gone to japan. They nine hundred. All the tour dates nope europe. And you see no way. I don't believe it. Well prove me wrong bringing. I'll bet i'll bet you seven dollars. Yeah yeah i'll say there was. Actually i pit you. Fifty one dollars and fifty cents. Fifty one fifty. Then there was. There was actually another lead singer. Who never really. They never did anything with them. 'cause he bailed he's No i'm not. I'm not doing this. Who is that. I forget his name wandered. Yeah the blonde do ya. Yeah i don't think he said no. They moved said it was very hard to work with. He he bowed out he was. He said he was kinda. He bowed out gracefully. Like i don't think he bowed out. I think that they abandoned him. I think they moved back to roth or they is. That is that what eddie said i. That's who they may have been. But by the way when david lee roth was either fired. Let go would've whichever you believe. One of the people that they actually considered to join. The band was patty smyth from scandal off. That would have been. I remember that. Patty smyth and valerie bertinelli were friends in patty smyth in the band scandal. Shooting at the heart of heartbreak bank reorient. Okay yeah you'll she could sing but total mismatch. Yeah a lot of other women could saying. Better brought pat bamut benetton. Now you're gonna bring in female singer that drawing female singer the the sad thing about van halen is that eddie is now gone and he may have blamed it on putting metal guitar picks in is in his mouth and being surrounded by electronics but the big smoking big reserves a giant smoker in a big drinker and whatnot and that stuff takes its toll unfortunately affected him in a bad way and we lost a genius and before he passed sammy hagar in him made amends and they would text each other. You know 'cause that he couldn't talk they would text each other back and forth and that's a good thing michael anthony on the other hand. I'm sure was hurt. But they did him bad. We can circle back to that. They did in bad. There was no reason for that. They bring in wolf e wolfgang van halen who his group. Mammoth just backed up guns and roses the other night. At the at the at fenway park. Is someone say. Have you ever listened to any of his stuff. No no not yet not yeah so not opposed to it that oppose talented kid. No question about an download. He unfortunately is going to be saddled with vanhanen's kid. You're trying to steal your father son thunder. You're at least kind of riding on his co. tails but he's did name mammoth he he he did you know. No no question about it. Video well john bonham sunday and his group barnum he he. He also played every instrument on the record and and there are some people out there that really you know like some of the stuff that he's done. I haven't listened to it that he was on the howard stern show and he played a couple of songs. And it's impressive. Yeah he He was sixteen when they took him on tour. Sure you're still in high school. Sure so he used. I guess eddie he said oh he had it the worst he would. He was two to three or four hours a day. Then he had to go practice for the gig and then do the show. Then get up for school the next day but think about that you sixteen years old. Okay you're in high school but you're in awe with van halen all it's father and your uncle and.

"Pops out. Yeah well it was successful it a lot of people today still don't buy into it a lotta purist. But i didn't at first but that's the beauty of music right so you go back in when when the hype dies down you give it a listen and you start to like like i was like i said i kinda quietly liked a couple of songs from eight one to you know what the videos were good. That's his is the thing for me. In and i do like some of the sami stuff. I do agree. Totally different banned. Totally different vibe. Totally different style. You know in sounded if you will and you gotta give sammy. as credit. he did not have to join van. Halen at a pretty successful solo career going on started on started off with montross back in the seventy s had a solo career going. And you know. I can't drive fifty five and whatnot certainly wasn't at the level of van halen but it was no bomb. Even you know for me. I think the transition went those early van. Halen albums were fucking great albatross. The van hagar years. They were great songs but not necessarily great albums from start to finish. In my opinion. I have no argument with you. I have no argument. With the i mean they. I've never honestly truth. Be told i've never listened to an entire album with sammy. Hagar the second one. Oh you eight one. Two i think is a great record from start to finish. But i think that's the only one you know the for the first one is some great cuts on it. There's some there's some clunkers in there or you. Eight one two is is great. Fifty one fifty was a good album. Fifty fifty one fifty was. There was some good stuff on there. I didn't love from start to finish. But it was still a roth guy in remember with remember. David lee roth space. First solo album in fifty fifty came out about the same time so there was a lot of comparisons. And i was a david lee rob guy. I thought that that band was tighter. I thought they were grittier. I thought the songwriting was a lot better. It's just my opinion. I thought they really gelled one. Two out for For lawful unlawful. Whatever it is was was pretty good you know and then balance. I thought it was a terrible record. I thought i think they fell off on that late. Just semi hagar actually wanted to name an album fuck just because that was when the censorship you know the tipper gore and that's just a fucking dumb idea it's just a dumb idea while he got it from he column carnal knowledge. I mean he got across. That was one of the things that drove me. Nuts about sammy hagar. Is that double entendre. Bullshit that he tried to do. It wasn't that clever. Did you write double. did you say double entendre. Yeah you like that. I don draymond genre. Tra don't fancy teaboy. He china trying to impress. You know what i love about. David lee roth when they asked him the way he says. Double entendre right. Double entendre. the giant recovery buddy. Sammy is a better thing of the david. Lee roth technically. But but semi. Hey sammy technically is a better singer. Than mick jagger who would you rather here. Yeah i know what i mean. I and i'll tell you one of the things that are really loved about david. Lee roth was his smart ass attitude he actually said in an interview. He was like sammy. Hagar's a great singer. He was like. But i am these singer. But i'm what these singer from these things as far as van halen. You know. I meant to get this out earlier and i don't wanna i wanna keep talking about. You know the the second. The van halen with sammy. Hagar there was a there was an episode backstage in addressing something when David lee roth would get on any venezuelans nerves and eddie van halen at one show backstage actually through an entire bowl of guacamole at david lee roth right but he misses them. Completely in hits steve perry. That's that's right so the rumor. Is that steve. Perry ride cried. Cried cried because he got hit with a bowl of guacamole. Go when one thing that i can assure you of is as i'm never ever going to be able to sing like steve perry but if more appropriately when you throw a bowl of guacamole at me i will not cry. I will not cry. I'll tell on next time we get together mexican so so they van hagar is. They called it the head some so. Actually you do you. And i have some songs. Let's kinda give them their due to so you gave me four songs. I have four songs. You have from the second incarnation.

"One thousand nine hundred eighty. Wow all right. Is that like i said. This was the first tool that i saw. Them was nineteen eighty. That's right okay. Can you fuck in fact straight. God damn i made a mistake and my my the fifth choice is of course. Can't go wrong can't go wrong with this. I never get sick of this song. I get sick and jamie's crying and never get sick of. The sun brings me back to the days hanging out with the ignorance. Yep that's another story for another. Had this ad this on vinyl eight track cassette cd downloaded it. You got another copy then. My buddy just texted me during the podcast the livestream instead. He wants the album. It's all is well. He did request the show so he wins the prize. Not only this for you. Send me a self addressed envelope. But i will be happy to autograph this on your behalf your autograph. So did you know that. Eddie van halen was in back to the future. Do ya ma. Most edward van halen was really him most. Most people think that he was he him playing the when he was when michael j. fox was playing on stage which is not the case right. Well eddie. Even when he was stuck into his his his his snuck into his father's room when he went back to the future he pulled out a cassette and he put headphones on. It said edward van halen on it and that was really an eddie van. Halen said yeah. I didn't want credit for it. It was a mess it was just. It was a lot of noise just making noise and he never admitted to it though he never up until a longtime after he finally did. Yeah that that that that was me that was me so Did you know that n even. Helen has a patent his three patent-pending but one of them one of them is called. I want to get this right when we get this right. He has a patent and it's the abstract right. What it is is he designed this strap that goes from one end of the qatar to the other goes around the back and neck and he he designed this kind of board behind the guitar that would lean on your lap or while you sit and it would leave the qatar so you hand both hands of free and you can play. It's almost like a steel guitar. Type thing yeah. Yeah sure right so did a electric guitar sure and he was working on that and i don't know it's it never knowing any venue was. Jeez you think about think about is guitars in the way that they look to you know with the stripes and whatnot. He created that he did not tape. Those he tape those and he did. Those all himself would sell to also remember that one of the things that most listeners don't know is that he was the inventor of what they call the browns. Sound the brown. Yes he would take a powers sars and try different things what. He was trying to keep up with alex's drum like he wanted to mimic his drum. I mean that's so unbelievably tactical so he emulated van. Halen has his own guitar amplifier. Line and whatnot in. This is one of those things where he was a celebrity. Just put his name on it. Actively involved in the creation and the development of this technology so dime bag dime bag. Daryl yet the unbelievable guitarist rest in peace from pan. Tara was a huge event. Halen fan right so he had wanted to eddie hard. He was making the making these special retirement. He taped all those lines on himself and he said next time we meet. I'll i'll hook you up. I'll do one right in front of you. He said we can do it together. And so dime bag. Darryl was sa- greatest thing in the world because that was his inspiration. Eddie van halen inspiration dime bag. Daryl gets killed onstage during. Show fucking tragic right so at his funeral eddie. Van halen brought the bumblebee guitar. It's the guitar. Is holding up the the black with a yellow stripes on the back cover event helen to and he puts it in his coffin with them. And he he's he never even played guitar and van halen to that guitar wasn't built. It was efficiently sure but he was holding it up. He put that in his in his so. They asked one of the guys from pancaro about that. He said if you had told us twenty years ago. If you had told daryl twenty years ago that eddie van halen give you guitar. If you've died he would have said. Kill me now. That's how much of a fan he was. How fucking cool is that. He gets his guitar would dine bag. Daryl pretty cool dime bag daryl. Play guitar listen this. It's not everybody's cup of tea but that dude was a self taught genius. Jeez by the way. Eddie van halen. So is that even ellen. Yeah by the way. Since you brought up you know bumblebee. You know the name of the red and white and black stripe guitar that he played most often. Do you know well. That is a combination of a handful of guitars. You know and i don't. I don't know that this is accurate. But it might be a fender neck kramer body. You know the innards of a less. Paul whatever it is but he affectionally referred to it as frankenstein frankenstein Did you notice that pause there. That negative craze i get it so hey wait time no no no no. We got plenty of time. We haven't dedicated a moment of this show to sammy hagar well. This is where we were going to now right so semi guy comes along and they become a whole different band like you said more polished more produced. Well i mean they're always well produced right but they become like sound right. they switch produces. he's kind of an interesting fact. That people might find interesting and completely useless so first van halen albums through the roth era. They used the guy by the name of temple. Men whose i think previous credits include like the doobie brothers so they continue on event in any van. Hanley gets more involved in the production. But you don't win. Some produces one of maybe a couple of their albums. Mick jones from the clash from farner. Over from florida okay. This has been a few mc jones is out. There isn't there mick. Jones and florida was a good producer. Guess but just just different. Different sound more polish mean. Listen you think you think of the kind of the greediness of the early van halen albums in the polish of the latest albums. Then think about the polish of..

"Yeah. Get my blood pumping through the state. Scott scott just before you actually go into your next on these great choices by the way. And i thought that one of the i know the. It's a podcast. I'm so one of the things that people should know is a lot of these records. Van halen one van. Halen to van halen. Three there were recorded in like a couple of weeks or a week or a couple of days. In between tours result was recorded in one day. they were working class band. Didn't take them years or a year to put these. Why because they fucking came up in the seventies when you earned that's nice pitches. That's what you did right. So but i agree with you. They would just they were. They were just so then we move on for my what is it. This is my one to my third song from fair warning. Great great song here about it later right now. Everybody got if you listen to. She gotta go download this stuff. This is great stuff that you probably haven't listened to in a long time or never or never. I'm sure people watching have heard it but you know a lot of people. Yeah he'd meet but say that edge right that edge that you're playing that muniz that's what the the hagar era lacked. They will polish that was shiny. They were fun. You know right. Roth roth brought that great. So then let's see. That was here about it later. From fair wanting now this is my fourth one of my fourth favourite again. Not necessarily anyone. It's played a lot but it's still a great fucking song. Great song again the vicious guitar in rock to screaming like a lunatic everyone. Everybody wants from women and children. I we get a discount.

"Them again. I went out on top. I don't know that you went and taught the nineteen eighty-four now. I got a free concert in two free concert. T-shirts i went out on. Come on my own. Doing one ended this to me but by the way because it since you mentioned it i'll tell you one of the things that used to frustrate the living shit out of me seeing van halen as good as a bass player is michael. Anthony was is good as a drummer as alex was as good as You know a vocalist whether you believe it or not as david lee roth. Wha i didn't need them to be doing solos. I mean if you think about the time that those guys took to do those little segment. How many songs or how. Many other songs that they actually could have played i. I don't need michael. Anthony pounding on his base boring alex fan handling during the trump solar fucking boring. David lee roth or sammy. Hagar with their vocal stylings. Who gives a shit now. Eddie van halen take tat. Michael anthony had that jack daniels bass guitar. Yeah he would he would bang on it and he would play these notes and any betraying round and he would he. Would you know bounce. Oh on eighty dropped. Who gives his shit. It's totally though these call. It's totally driven by testosterone. Even the girl said fuck into sauce thrown. I mean it was like the average girl didn't go see van halen. That's not true. That's not true there was just. It was only going to see rush. Listen like always eighty rushing shit. Go to see rush. The only girls that were in there working at the concession stance advan handling eddie van halen. Good looking guy. David lee roth. Good-looking guy. van hailing played the drums. David lee raw talk about going from fucking heaven. Hell in the looks department. Jesus christ this guy looks like he should be sitting at a jewish deli in new york. He's not like us that of age. So well i mean look at us. I mean we wanted to be rockstars. And we both looked like billy corgan and billy joel. Whoa hey piano man. Easy easy easy. So nine hundred. Four the big break out that was that sent them into the stratosphere that was their joshua tree right. That was their nominated for grammy. There only number one ever ten million homes their biggest selling album ever right and it had a lot of hype leading up to it and that was it. It was it for a long time. So david lee roth decides. I want to make a movie and they gave him. Cbs one of these studios gave them like ten million dollars to do crazy from the heat which were based on his videos. If you watch the gigolo and california gurls him and his manager we're gonna go on some crazy and it fell through right so he has modern as it as it should. David david lee. Roth has fucking trail of failed experiments along the way. Do you remember when he actually had his own radio station with a written up. Radio station radio show. We were trying to compete with howard. Stern did her him talk. I will tell you. The first to david lee roth solo albums some good stuff on man. Oh well he had steve vai playing utah right billions of people around him yet he sure. Did you know so. Then we go on to the second incarnation which we already know that one of our one of our longtime friends. Ruthie fisher does not like vanna and i actually got a couple of comments on facebook as promoted the livestream about make sure you separate van halen. Hey so there's i was one of those people originally change their name. No i wasn't a semi hagopian fan. I'm still not a big sammy. Hagar fan but i wasn't a sammy. Hagar fan with van halen. I thought ours. A david lee roth guy you know and i never gave them a chance although when i was stationed in the from eighty seven eighty nine. That's when the video started. Busting out. And i kind of secretly like them but i would never admit it so before we get into that before we get into that we. We don't ever talk about the show. Prior to the show. this is not a produced. Show a produced a podcast in the sense of we compare notes and i have no not exactly on. I might have minimal fair this. This is This is my memory. In the time that i've spent on the research that i've done over the years which if had hit it been applied to something constructive far more successful and wealthy than i am today but i think i think you and i did okay for ourselves but for two guys that had a lot of music and still have a lot of music knowledge and always said the same thing. If i just applied this on something else been somebody. I could have walked the halls of mit solving math problems on chalkboards. Instead of san David lee roth is His father or is uncle actually managed to say we're out in the in the sixties. Stupid club this this or the internet. This this information has got me fucking free beer for my money but look at where we are now. But we're doing a podcast right with putting it out to the world with sharon all our knowledge with everybody all twelve. Listen so i did ask you for a now. This is where the livestream might get. Shut off and this shows over an hour. We made a mistake with arrowsmith. We cut it short because we try to. But there's too much here and we're just going to go with this one. We're going to go with it. We're not going to leave really a lot on the table. But i did ask you for your five somebody okay. Jack has held up the van.

"Shot in hell pretty much. Probably one of the only mistakes. Gene simmons ever made businesswise because that guy never makes a wrong move and we're not gonna go off on him you know. He's he's an interesting guy but you know what they are. Van halen is in a long line of bands that were rejected initially from record companies. You too was rejected by you. Know twenty or more record companies. The pretenders rejected by record companies. The fucking beatles were rejected by record companies. Because somebody didn't hear it or somebody didn't know how to market it or somebody was goddamn fucking lazy bryce and going back to the beginning. Of course you know you know. But i don't know if the listeners know that originally eddie played the drums and alex played guitar. Yeah when when they were kids. Yeah in eddie. Was out working in alex sneaking and play his drum kit finally he said you know what just fucking switch. I don't care. I don't care. Switch instruments just stay there right so then they move on right and they get. Did they get discovered and the first album comes out. What seventy eight seventy seven. The first album came out in seventy seven. And i think it was seventy seven so that same year that they got turned down by the record. Company did the demo gene simmons. I'll check my My rectangle i always thought it was seventy but either way you may be right and then from that point on the legends. Were born right. Well not before. Then so here's is one side note that that you may not know is that when they first started recording van halen and they recognized that they had an immense talent in this band but even back then in those early days there was some concern amongst the record company so they were signed to warner brothers records and they had the brothers had concerns as did the producer. I believe that david lee roth vocals were not as strong as they could be and they actually considered. I don't know how far they actually took this. But they considered replacing. David lee rob before first came out and they had a number of different lead singers considering including sammy. Hang on. maybe that's why they went after him after. David lee roth right so the komo. If if you if you look at some of those early gigs. One of one of the early Tours of van halen. They were an opening act and they were on like. I've seen a concert poses where they were. The opening acts of boston was the headliner in journeying van. Halen in sammy. We're all on the same bill back then. Imagine that l- little foreshadowing. Yeah so you know. Seventy seven seventy eight van. Halen one comes out classic album one of the greatest seventy greatest debut albums in music history and they take off. So what is your favorite van. Halen album believe it or not. I mean i think that van halen one is a flawless album. I don't think there's a song that's bad. That's bad on that as a matter of fact. Guide the original catalog and you to remember take into consideration. That was i was a van. Halen free back. Well we all we all were. Yeah yeah anybody. Anybody that grew up in winthrop knew that. But i was bigger fan of van. Halen to then. I was Vanhanen one only for the fact that venue in one was so played so much that i liked some of the things that you didn't hear so often i think van halen to is a song for song. We've had this debate. I've said this van halen song for song is I think a better album. But i'm a second album guy i've for some reason. Van halen to like better than van. Halloween candy oh i like better than the cause debut. Who else was there. I was just thinking. Oh arrowsmith i like get your wings more than featuring dream on. I always like second album for some reason. I don't know if it's just the thing. But yeah you know. I i have to tell you. I mean from from my perspective personal feelings aside. You look at what they accomplished with van. Halen one mazing out doesn't mean. I'm not a great album. Yeah on paper van. Halen one is a better in van. Halen too. I just like van halen to better yes. It's a fantastic fantastic. So but benway van halen won the fucking audacity who puts a guitar solo on an album. Nevermind album debut album right. So okay eruption. The story behind eruption is he was an even helms warming up for a gig. You'll before a gig. He's in the studio and the producer walks by his that he says the what's that he goes he's just well. Maybe who get that on tape so that was so they said okay and he does it in to the day he died eddie van halen said i could have done that better and he picks out mistakes like we think it's a masterpiece right this fucking genius. He hears he goes. I made a mistake at the top of this and then you know. I should have done this over here. I could have made it better really but his his thing. And i think some people kinda miss this especially if you think if you look at like progressive rock prog rock you know. People want absolute perfect scales and whatnot. We as listeners as readers as observers of art we love the mistakes we have those little flaws me you think about the beginning couple of cords of roxanne right and a lot of people may not know this but you know when roxanne was being recorded sting backs into a piano. And he that laughed at he does is because he bumps in in it. That's magic man. Oh i didn't know that either. Good good for good info is that with makes the noise. That do new. Yeah yeah that really. He backs into appeal. I never knew that. How did i not know that son of a bitch. That's good info party. But this is this is what this show is about of the is me educating you about hall. I'm here to help you brother. I'm your eddie van. Halen to your alex van halen. Okay all right listen. When was the first time you saw them in consett. Nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine hundred eighty boston garden the van halen invasion tour me and my friend greg porter. July twenty fifth nineteen eighty god. God rest his soul. My friend greg porta who passed away last week. He and i literally skip school. Snuck on the train went to the boston. Garden waited in line in brought our nine dollar.

"And there you go. That's how you came up with the final. And fortunately he said michael was happy with the help of it which he fucking better be. Yeah absolutely very eligible for some people. Call it the one of the greatest guitar solos in history and on really know about that. I think it's you know it's classic. Eddie there's no way that you can deny that it's that it's not him you know talk talk about somebody that in some regard had artistic integrity in maybe not so much business. If you think about the thriller which was one of the highest selling records of all time. How much money did he actually walk away from. Millions millions of votes. Oh huge as as one of our view was parodied. Perry said what kind of money could have made if he was credited with millions of dollars. And i think that was when he said it just gets to again. Listen the bottom line to this thing. When quincy jones asks or favor you give him the favor absolutely especially then. He called me the day. He quit of eat some junk in his backyard that he needed me. Take out there. I went on credited so actually let me see you know. Michael anthony's rail name can't remember off the top of my head and michael anthony so baluyevsky the right move. He definitely made the right move. I think he should have gone with. Michael anthony cash michael anthony haskell or michael anthony lock or michael anthony fisher for those of you. That are listening. I'm just reading all the people that are making comments along lines but definitely not. Michael anthony calabrese. That's that's just totally out. What about michael anthony vich. Now all right. We're very to listen. Wait a minute before. Before we let anything and i and i don't know how much you've actually research. But here's one of the things very complex band. You know eddie van. Halen alex fan here. You know a band that was for party and in good times and you know having unity and whatnot but very complicated in some aspects of it really dark so one of the things that i had read was that when they had actually did or a tour back in like i think it was two thousand and four. They reunited in order from michael anthony to participate in that tour. They forced him to give up his writing credits. Not just that it was a strictly royalty free you. He was almost like a hired gun. He played yeah he played the bass and did backing vocals right and he got no credits for it. It's in the only reason he came back was qasimi. Hagar said i won't do it if my unless michael anthony comes and i'm sure michael anthony made about load of money. I think if you go online and you look up the land. And i think he's worth like seventy million dollars. Yeah yeah you know what i mean you know. How much is too much. How much is is not enough but it was still just a douchebag move amongst the band because if you look at an hot amongst amongst the brothers alex always did with eddie said yes. Of course no denying that. I get news field. Alex van halen in japan with van. Halen i'm going to do everything he wants me to do. Well that that might be the case. But that wasn't the case. Were creedence clearwater revival. That actually destroyed the band. Of course it. Did you know when the brothers the one got jealously. Although alex is like. Hey i'm just going to play the drums you're right. I'm looking at not nothing. Nothing but brothers and bands. It's not a good combination. Seem to work out. Ray ray davies fill in whatever. His name is elderly The boys liam in knoll from oasis. Rich and chris from the black crowes the van halen brothers. All those two guys found a way to get along. They always place was allen was just alle. Alex was just like whatever. Yeah yeah and they met him. And alex in anthony met in pasadena it was the pasadena music conservative conservatory of music or something like that so so at the beginning. I know you know who discovered them. Basically right yes i do. Yes so i'll let you. i'll let you all. I'll give you the history best. I know it so you know. Van halen was doing a lot of small gigs in and around pasadena and around. La and they were discovered if you will by gene simmons of kiss yes. Jean saw the potential. Obviously now that back in the day you know they were a hot band. As a matter of fact it was such a hot band. At eddie's technique was so original that a lot of the time he actually played with his back to the audience. Because you didn't want a lot of big itar plays in to steal his stop. So gene simmons gets involved in thinks that he can actually gate wanted manage them. This was in seventy seven by the way this was in seventy seven. He produces a demo. Yes pretty rough demo. And i've listened to it. You can actually get it online in. Here's one of the things. I mean you definitely can hear. It's van halen but the production. It sounds like a fucking kiss record. There's no high end it's muddy. It's just lousy. gene simmons. Hayes had a long and lengthy career. God bless him and whatnot. he's not a great producers. No certainly wasn't back in nineteen seventy seven. Yeah yeah so. He takes them to new york for an audition with his record company. Which i would assume casablanca records right takes them. Their their manager says well first before they get their chain. Simmons wants them to change the name from van halen to daddy long legs. They did have a couple of names before van here at one point that was anti hell no now mill so along those lines at one point they were called rat salad and then they were called mammoth and they found out that they had there were other. There was another ban. Call that actually their first name believe it or not was genesis. Oh i didn't know that. yeah and they. They realized that there was obviously another band. By the name of genesis. Over in england with peter gabriel phil collins and the rest of that crew. So then they go to. Mammoth and there was a small abandoned. Actually had that. And it was. David lee roth that made the suggestion to call it van halen because they thought that it had unity in strength much like santana. There you go. That was the comparison. Yeah it had a nice nice nice ring to it. And i'm sure the the brothers didn't mind not and it is a strong name if you think about it. It is a strong name so they get declined by kiss manages saying they don't have a.

"A big show. Like i said two words than freaking halen. We're going to get right into it. So without further ado let me bring it on my co host. The atomic punk himself calabrese now aged. I got a lot to cover here. What's that ami. okay. Thank i can hear you working on a little technical difficulty during this episode. But that's okay. We'll get through it. Have you seen junior's great scott the. It guy is not. He's definitely he's in and out of that hot sauce money he makes it and then he doesn't so all right buddy you ready to do a good show. I'm ready to do a good show. All right van halen where to begin. So they were seventies band technically. It's hard to believe that right. Well informed in one thousand nine hundred seventy four. yeah a mayor amir ameer four years after jimi hendrix past. Isn't that crazy doesn't even. It's like they've been around that long or they weren't they. Were around that long. And then if you come back and you look at their that their touring Those websites that have toured tours and set lists. It's like seventy four seventy five seventy say like they were crazy then. They were torn not back. They were a working-class band. They certainly were. They certainly were. Do you know who the last member of van halen was to join. The last member borough But the burn. You mean like the original lineup original lineup. I would say it was michael. Anthony yeah i mean that's kind of a. It's not a no brainer question for us. it is He met alex van halen. At what in sending in college san diego they were going to like some conservatory of music right and they hit it off and he introduces them to eddie but what he was basically used for the beginning is they. They use his amps. They were like hey. Can we borrow your apps. Can we borrow this and eventually asked to join the band. Great move absolutely great move. I mean first of all. I mean underrated bass player rudimentary in terms of what he did. He was no getty. Lee jordan win whistle. Chris squire from yes but those backing vocals well i. That's that's one of the things. I wanted to talk about. 'cause everybody can talk about eddie van halen and we'll get to eddie van. Halen you know in david lee roth but the two that never get talked about as it is usually with any band right. Is the drummer and the bass player. But michael anthony. I think was a very underrated bass player that he was driving driving bass in those songs. It's almost like whites in k. From rage against the machine. I mean rage against what she wouldn't have that sound without his base. Yeah it's it's You know it's one of those things. Where michael anthony is. His base playing drove it had a funk and had a rhythm but it it didn't have the wasn't a fancy flashy play right right so he wasn't he wasn't getting league going up and down the fret for he kept the bottom edge he was he was the dusty hill of van. Halen good comparison. Yeah fair enough fair enough. Yeah i'll tell you. And by the way i don't know if i'm jumping ahead or not. He's the one guy variant halen that got absolutely fucking screwed all so we can go on. We can cover that later if you want to know you know. It doesn't matter we're going to cover whatever we cover but you know again. We can talk about eddie van halen for two hours. Sure he's he's a master a genius but michael anthony did so speculation is that he got kinda kicked out of the band because he owns a hot sauce company and he does like hot. Mustards and stuff like that. And any thought he was spending too much time doing that. But there's an interesting side story to that. Also so he thought he was committing too much time to his business and not the band so supposedly that's why he gets kicked out but he was also friends with sammy. Hagar so semi hagar in eddie van halen had a falling out in a big part of that falling was eddie van. Halen didn't like the fact that sammy hagar spending so much time in kabul and put his time into that so it sounds to me where on the street was that event hill and was kind of an asshole anyways he was control-freak he was he was a complex guy. You know so he was. He was a genius in in some ways. Short like most genius. You can attest to this part genius in this power train wreck. Yeah yeah. I think he. He was a total control guy. Yeah absolutely total. Control guy. He i think he you know eddie. Van halen was completely dedicated to the band in expected. The same but eddie had his own side projects as well. That was the deal that they had the band had. They had a deal no side projects and that was kind of thing throughout the early career. Yeah but he did. A solo album with with brian. May he played on. Beat it. okay so beat it. He played on. Beat it with no credit right. He didn't get credit. Did a favor to quincy. Jones asked him to do it. And he said yeah. Give me a case of beer. And and michael can give me a dance lesson somewhere in the future. He also said in wanting money. 'cause it would complicate things. He didn't want it to get any. He said that the it now. This is at the time. He said that we're really not supposed to do side projects. That was a thing within the band so he did the beat thing without a credit but everybody i mean it was distinctly eddie van halen guitar. Of course no one was. No one was mimicking that it was. It was the michael anthony in quincy. Jones were no dummies. They recognize that if they were able to get into play on that song that they would have a crossover hit. I mean for crying out love for those of you. That are listening right now. There was a rock station in boston. Called wbz and that played. Rockin never play michael jackson until and they did played a couple of times they played. Beat it so another interesting story behind. That is he played it. he played it in one. Take i believe it was something like that. And he was in the studio. With quincy and michael and michael left the studio and eddie kind of said. Okay do this. I want you to shop this. Put this in you know. Move this over here and then blah blah blah however he did it without michael no in and then he did it.

Song is one of my favorite tracks on the album. Tell me about especially since it was the beginning. Tell me about that one coming together. Yeah it seemed to kind of it. Gave me the confidence to kind of be like. Hey okay i think i'm on the right track here. I kind of hit the the tone and the pace of what i was going for for something you know. It felt knew it felt different. It felt something that was like original in my own. It didn't sound like van halen. It didn't sound like anything. It just sounded like this might be what my music sounds

Is Remote Work Better for the Environment?

"You may remember at the start of the pandemic when the world was at a standstill. The natural world seem to be making something of a comeback. There were stories of dolphins swimming in the canals in venice goats. Taking over towns and wales nature was healing. All of this reflected this notion that life under lockdown is good for the environment. People weren't driving to work. Companies weren't using energy to heat and power big office buildings working from home might actually save the planet. The reality though is a bit more complicated here. Talk about is professor. Liam o'brien from carleton university. Halen hi thanks for having me. So if i were to say to you. Working from home is better for the environment than a working from an office. Would you agree. I would say it's actually very complicated. A lot of the tangible things like like not having to buy gas for occurs to commute. Those are really obvious to us. But we don't think a lot of the secondary effects like the fact that now are heating and cooling our homes more. We're using office equipment at home. We're using more internet most likely and in some cases where even moving further out from our work which is going to have potentially permanent consequences. Okay so let's take the example of working from home versus going to the office so we assume as occupants. I think that if we're not in our office building than than the building isn't being heated. It's not being cooled. It's not being lit or ventilated. But that tends not to be true. A lot of these systems and big buildings are scheduled so whether there's one person in there or thousands they're still going to be operating.

There's a live concert here in chicago whether it's a small club theater or arena it it just has an atmosphere that is like no other. It's really cool. I agree man I've been coming to chicago since the early days of brother cane We could have first. Album outweigh back in ninety three and straightaway man chicago and northern illinois radio in general. They really embrace this. And i feel like it's a relationship that i've been really fortunate to have for gosh man crazy number thirty years ago long time and you have some connection here too in chicago. I know steph from f three design. I think he does your local man. Stephon stephan does everything. He's yeah steffen. I think the first thing he did for me was help me. Get my website design in early two thousands and then Bizmart work for me. On my i guess my second solo album which was in a stick record and then when he has started warns. The arm in You know i've been a proud supporter of their clothing company and i love awareness stuff and they're just they're to of my favorite people on the planet. They're like family to us. Yeah i've known stephan for gosh. It's gotta be two decades three decades almost and i used to live with this rock band in chicago and he used to do. They're designed to as well in all their kind of marketing in and You know other kind kinda website and designing stuff. And i've known him so i run into him at shows like him and i always like bump into each other like. Hey man what's going on so it's always good to see him. That's amazing you've known him longer than i have. So that's That's really cool. And i'm i'm so proud of the growth. They've had their company and They're both incredibly talented. And it's inspiring you know for them to start their own kind of mom and pop business as they as they have and they grown it to the level that they have. I'm really proud to be a part of their circle. Well we got lots to get into but we always begin the episode. Every time we have a first time guest the same way and that's the essence of the show. The the question. We always ask just like every rock song has a hook. That sucks you in rock fan has a moment whether it's a band performance a song or album that hook them on rock and roll. What was it for you. Wow that's a big question The thing that hooked me on rock and roll was. I saw kiss on the midnight special on my television. When i was in the seventh grade and i it was the equivalent. I'm sure jay of our older friends. When they saw the beatles on ed sullivan that was the equivalent of that moment for me. No one's ever asked me that question to tell you the truth You know. I grew up my my folks to this day man. Both my parents love music and so it was a very musical household. The radio was always playing in. Dad would buy vinyl records of perjury artists pop artists and but yeah that was when i felt like it was something that was specifically mind. You know my parents not care for kids. They played black diamond complete with this. You know the rising drum riser in the pyro and everything manages your that. Messed me up preordained. I think it put me on the path for sure. Your kiss was an inspiration for a lot of musicians. And i think it was just the the imagery you know the the faces and the explosions and all the stuff. That kind of just pulled you in you know. The music was great too. But it just had like this power over young kids. I mean i got exposed to kiss back in like the early eighties. And i always remember knowing of them in knowing what they look like before i heard their music and then i heard their music and then i was just hooked. Yeah you know. I you know. I'm i'm probably a little older than you. So you know that midnight. Special show man that would have been nineteen seventy seven grow. This was this was early. This was. I believe this was between kiss alive. One destroyer and You know it was cool. Because i had a group of friends at school that you know we were all kind of discovering rock and roll at the same time and i remember that year in school that no kid and leonard skinner. I'm from the south. And so you know sweet home. Alabama was already the national anthem for us. And so you know the musicality of a ban like skinner We love led zeppelin and You know not long after that. We really got into bands like rush pink. Floyd bad company was big call. Rogers greatest singer of all time. You know things like that. So that set the table for me. I guess jay and then the two big bands not long after that you know when i finally started going to concerts where we saw thin lizzy. Ironically i saw them in seventy nine and that was a game changer for me and The the next summer. I saw van halen for the first time and i was cooked like that's it. I'm i gonna play guitar. You know. I have friends who go to college and get a degree and and and pursued that actually and it wasn't until i had already graduated junior college that i really ever thought of even considering it to be possible to play music as living especially for women coming from such rural backgrounds. There was nobody from where i came from. That was a professional musician. You know so. It just didn't seem possible.

"Thank you so much for coming on the show today. I'm really excited to chat. So i would love you to tell us more about yourself. And what's your story. So how did you come to be where you are today as a chiropractor and wellness coach specializing. In what you do now thinking about me so much pleasure. Well i've always been interested in the human body and a group with mammalian. Sports are always had books around the house and spines nazi books. So i've always had an interest in the human body and chiropractic clay. I was playing basketball blow and my back at the age of seventeen. I think and that was that was my first experience themselves a chiropractor at this point. It was very mechanical pain based approach in late to ron and started studying sports science halfway through degrade house thinking what to do with my life. Decided to apply for chiropractic got into chiropractic in two thousand and eight graduated in twenty twelve on then. It wasn't really until after graduating. I started to really appreciate and understand. What chiropractic is and why would offer to people and it was more of a vied to the stick but wellness approach rather than mechanical symptom approach. So that's how go into chiropractic. And and i'm no back casually been a blessing truly grateful for didn't really say his work which apply lookie lookie and nonsense but it's changed my life but is because of the power and how it changes people's lives basically unease abou the philosophy of chiropractic is. The buddy is able to heal itself. If is in the right environment and the nervous system is the system processes the environment whether it be into entity externally so working with a person with the spine to create ease in the system is balancing not stress. Response the synthetics responds in the parsing responds on. Then when the body's in state it can do wonderful things. So yeah that's how i go into it and that's why. I'm extremely passionate about about the subject about chiropractic. Going back to what you said you know when you thought when you were a teenager and you got injured that it was just you know physical manipulation and stuff like that. I think a lot of people assume that. That's what chiropractic is so talk a little bit more about how let's actually let's start with like what are the biggest misconceptions about the chiropractic. Practice a good way Talk to patients about so car isn't just about and treating pain or treating condition. Yes we can help with. Simpson such babies headaches.

"I kind of i don't wanna say blame guns n. Roses but the lack of presence for what was supposed to be one of the greatest rock bands of all time in the ninety s when grunge more or less took over. I have to think that if guns and roses had any type of presence back then they're still would have been a rock base in terms of rock bands. I think they would have stuck to their guns and released. What they wanted to release the end. Rock fans would have had a place to go instead you know for that period in the mid to late s and into the two thousands rock bands. Really didn't know what to do. They were kinda lost. There wasn't really a lot of great new bands coming out. there were a few. But you know guns guns and roses kinda let rock and roll down their infighting and they're in the situation. You know taking seventeen years to release a album in between chinese democracy and use your illusion. I mean that's just. I mean that's my opinion but that did happen. Yeah when you look at it that way. I think you're right because they really were coated to be banned. Basically brock was gonna carry on down that kings of the castle and need lesion. I write museum album. And most. I think i've been roses hardcore fans. Don't like a lot of what on either. I think one really great could both of short. I got a little bit boarded right. Knoxville as you said was kinda do it experimentation. I was completely lost with guns and roses actor beginning incident. Absolutely nothing for me chinese democracy. I listen to thank for about three days. And then that was it for for them so in terms of damage kind of leading down the rock world i could certainly see where dot as absolutely valid point and they really should have been again if they were able to keep it all together and you know do what they were on track to do. I don't see why would releasing albums all the way through that period of time that the fell apart. There's such a so many talented guys in that band but you got that many bills especially one big one kind of running the show. It's hard to keep the momentum going so whether he dislikes team there's been lots launch what happened and You know the whole thing kind of thinking the show running away with even getting the right about that but you know their legacy will stay intact for the sheer fact that you know when you go back to it. Appetite for destruction guarded by many then and the hard rock baby album of all time. And when you look at it the numbers is one of the best selling the ball. Time as well right. So there's the play who's right. Who's wrong. I think jay were. We're definitely guys who have uh opinions. That should be listened to in terms of what we think. But that's just me you. I don't want to tell anybody what to think right and and Quite a lively debate. But you know when people do say appetite for destruction is way better than van. Halen one no. It's it's not right. That's you know what i mean. It's a great album but it just everything that came after that didn't change the game Van halen one. Did you can't dispute that. You cannot say van. Healing one wasn't a game changer. If you look at like the five albums in rock history that changed the game van halen one is on that list. You could say jimi hendrix. Are you experienced. You could say the first beatles album. You can say Back herb zeppelin one or whatever was which is another great debut album and i find it ridiculous that people call it a covers album. It is not a covers. The word is not an when people say that. But you know it is. I mean there's a lot more original material and usually it's the people that just don't like led zeppelin. You know that. say oh. It's a covers album because van halen's got to covers on their debut. Yeah louis people sound nothing like the original versions as does the ones and led zeppelin one guitar. You are you a believer in just talking about covers and you are you of the mind that van. Halen's you really got me is better than the original. Oh for sure i am. Oh yeah i one hundred yes yes You know getting back to leads up and good times bad times. Cover gonna leave you. Some people regarded as a cover page implant also wrote different sequences in different parts of that song. You shook music cover. Dazed and confused is not a cover. Your time is gonna congress not to cover. Communication breakdown is not a cover. How many more times is not a cover. I can't quit you. Baby is so there's three you could say three covers on. Its yeah that's not a covers album now when you look at the albums that were coming out by the stones and other albums at that time that were debut albums a lot of them were covering blues. Axe you know back then but You know zeppelin. One is regarded Boston's debut album. Is i think more influential than appetite for destruction in terms of production and how it sonically sounded because i think boston's album certainly changed the game with how music was mixed and produced after that. I mean that's a. That's a beautiful mixed and produced tom. Show that genius right. Yeah absolutely it comes to that You know black sabbath obviously was a game changer to as well jimi hendrix album. That we that we mentioned but you know appetite. I the way. I look at guns and roses is a good with a great.

"You said without van halen and able to one would have any of the what followed actually happened right so in terms of the influence on everything that came after it. I don't think anyone will argue that. That hailing one set the tone at a time when right when when van halen was up and coming in those mid to late seventies and debut album you know music was kind of all over the place right the rock and roll kind of in this weird spot guide. Your you know your sticks in your reo speedwagon that stuff but new way was coming in and vita disco era at the heavy metal thing kind of was often own little corner with your hardcore black sabbath. Guys van halen was the band kind of changed everything german the name of the game for our brock and brought brand new audience. I think too hard rock. I think you know talking about the eating. We talked to you. Know glenn metal or summer was on and killed it and you know that a lot of the audience the glam scene in the eighties in a female crowd. I think van halen did that. Initially back in the seventies the you know all the all the girls want to be with feeling and they brought in that female. I think really early on expanded the for hard rock dot much more And then obviously everything that followed after that you know resulted. I think from us. He said. Now this great band. Come this party dan that everybody wanted. Good time You know just right at the cusp of the decade of decadence. To every about the where you know things are to get everything big and money was being spent in and that was the lifestyle so you guys kicked it on one hundred percent. Yeah you know. I mean you mentioned the girls wanted to get with dan halen more specifically they wanted to get what deal the roth. I still remember watching. The fair warning. the unchained video of fair warning album. And he's in those as a young like shield. My eyes are like dude man that things like three d. glasses on your junk like popping out of the screen my god yeah but It's albums were released in two different times like you mentioned you. Rock music became very formula. When van halen one came out and you could say the same to for guns and roses. Although i do think it was yeah. It wasn't until later in the early nineties where that scene started become really really formula So i think appetite for destruction was out for a few years before. That really started to happen when i do interview. A lot of new bands now do music spotlight and a lot of bands come on a lot of them site appetite for destruction as an influence. You know because that's you know. Their parents are in their thirties at this time or maybe thirties when they were young when they had these kids. I mean a lot of these kids now in their twenties. So they're roughly you know a few years younger than me and They cite listen appetite for destruction because of their dad listening to it or their uncle or Whoever whoever it was they cite appetite in that in the black album I think you know one of the reasons one of the. I don't want to say the word negative at one of the disappointing things about van halen later on before eddie it passed was they were not very active and they did not release a lot of materials so i do believe that did affect their legacy and appreciation that bands and people half for them. You know i mean we. We just saw that article last year or the day before or the year. Before by billy elliot. She didn't know at van halen. I were just going to mention matt so in van. Halen really doesn't have anybody to blame for that but themselves. You know the van halen entity We can discuss that. you know. that's a whole different conversation to have. But yeah i i you know van halen their legacy was very you know impacted by that. I remember reading an article. I don't know if it was in rolling stone or it was a music magazine that talked. Well van halen be one of those bands. It just fades off into the distance. You know like like another example. They covered their song the kinks. you know You know the kinks have faded to as well. Because you know obviously over time. But you know when. I read that article. I was kind of disappointed because he meant so much to rock music and he meant so much to the scene back then and the influence of the guitar. There was disappointing to read that but it is a reality that that's a that is van. Halen fans you know one of those things that hopefully out of the the negative of of eddie passing. The positive is is that people and young people do discover their music again and learn to appreciate what is what was van halen. Yeah you know what you could almost right along the line you could play guns and roses in the very similar situation to degree right because you know they. They they came up. You know they hat now much more compact and initial career that six or seven years labor masturbate. But you know they flamed out They have that huge gap time. We're actually you know trying to make chinese democracy forever and ever but you know they were gone from the public eye for the longest time and thankfully did reunite most of them on the tour and everything. But are they gonna make. You don't know they're ready to see you know along the lines of van halen but to me you know looking at the big picture We're talking to debut album. You know van halen. I think if you ask any rock fan widely regarded as one of the most important and influential lot bands well time cetera guns in rhode. You know a great band. They don't have the lanc of career or catalog or rod work. That has to replace the in that same upper echelon of top rock bands of all time. I don't know i fan of equally year. Actually maybe been here a little bit more which will be towards going with my choice but you know. I think there's a little bit discrepancy there just between the two dams so it's interesting to your different opinions a fan so i. I put a poll question last week which you vote. I put it up to my twitter audience right. You know what your favorite of the two albums destruction versus. Dan halen one. I was expecting a very audience and.

"And released in january of nineteen ninety-five fans started to worry that the ban was in jeopardy. Dave appeared on late night with david letterman and said that as far as van halen went fully expected the band to be in the studio and working on a follow up to one nine hundred four later in the year. Then halen would be in the studio. Then but david lee roth would not be now. And that's where we're going to end this episode. Aside from the fact that as in the first episode ben halen is the ultimate drunk guys argue about him banned in part one will announce somewhat debated but basically just gave our rankings of all the van halen studio albums in order We both had the first. We were in agreement on number twelve and number one. Which i think most people are i i. It's all those in between that it gets hard to parse out some time so in our next episode. We're going to have the ultimate van halen debate but for this when we're going to i mean next next time is like bare knuckle crowd seriously like where called a mouth bass and the whole bit but but just one little less a little less controversial for me as well. I would think so. Yeah you gotta watch out for them. Wall penises never know wallpaper is gonna get you a plaster pud. And he has a drywall. Weighty okay that was this is going to be a little bit of a less controversial topic and and not a very long one then. Helen has not the most extensive catalog. It's twelve albums but you have to figure about ten songs per album. Lived with about one hundred and twenty songs. Ish of original studio cut material. They're always going to be some songs that get left behind get overlooked. Some were released a single somewhere some to this day. Get recurrent radio airplay to this day. There there are some vanhanen's songs. I have literally never heard played on the radio anywhere. My entire life have some overlooked. Gems is what we're getting at. That's our opinion so willing are just gonna run through each of us. Our top files underrated van. Halen songs and Will you go first. One is doing top to bottom or sure. Okay so i. I did it in an honorable mention for six. Because i feel like it's known it's not quite a i have to give it up to then hand to spanish fly. Yeah that is such a one our love it just on. I couldn't take away the an interesting thing about that song. If i if what i read is correct because as we discussed in part one you have at least played guitar song. You can speak with some degree of knowledge about guitar. I am a moron. When it comes to music instruments playing anything i i know nothing but from what i read. He's basically demonstrating his two handed tapping technique on an acoustic guitar. Correct in that which is much more difficult to do than it is on. An electric guitars was much less sustain. Again you can't move as quickly along the neck either. So yeah right you gotta hit harder to so it's not to get to capture. The sound. said he did all. That song is pretty amazing. Actually yeah so that's a great one. I feel like eleven comes. No that one you know. It's the deep cod. You know kind of so he would. He would often include that in part of his extended solo in concert. Nothing usually he yes So we're going to go to the original halen out on this one again with so many gems. I feel like this get left behind. It's gotten some airplay but not a lot. You actually played a our generalize episode. That's show your love. I adore what a great song in every way shape or form again. I just feel it's outshine on album. Everything just pure gold. Something's not gonna shine bryant and unfortunately until like. That's it shouldn't be that one really. That's one of my favorite songs on that album on period. Yes you're in. He'll end up the whimsey of breaking out. This this sears. Driving solo with barbershop quartet do ops down. Like they're doing this next. One actually comes from nine nineteen four albums. We just mentioned again easy to get. I assigned an album. That's just pure greatness. I'm going with house of pain off. Good one very very good. I'm going with house of pain on that one. And i think that's another case where there are so many giant smash hit on one thousand nine hundred four because you think jump in panama and hot for teacher you that those other solves kind of get forgotten. That whole album is really strong. It's a great album. And like i said when everything is is that right. Something's gonna get lost in the shop like that was in the other one. I have does also come from that album. Highway overlooked dropped lakes. The s of another great one. Absolutely again i i. It ranked nineteen eighty-four album as my second favorite second only van hill and that was just amazing so i think the detour will take now for my final two are going to be appropriate for what we're covering next and we do again. Close the chapter on. David lee roth and bringing in a talent here. My first one is coming from the four unlawful. Carnal knowledge album opening track pound cake. I know not usually favored one by fans. I also know that most people would look at his album and pick the second song judgment day which is a great song but just the opening just power on the song and this is related. Sammy came into his own with the band. Was that album specifically right. And i think no more clear than on that opening track of pancake on carnal knowledge. I'm gonna stick with that to close it out with an overlook track on appropriately. The namesake of the studio. You mentioned fifty one fifty and the title track fifty one fifty while remains one of my favorite van halen limit. This one remains one of my favorite ones period. Fifty one hundred is one of my favorite albums. I bought it on cassette. douse somewhere. your mom. Rally ramambo bob up such a strong and there's so many good ones on there. I think summer nights and the fun. The thing is is for some reason. People think of that album is being really ballottee. And i'm like well. Yeah on the songs that were released as singles but there are some banging zones on that one fifty one fifty killer summer nights rate song. Yeah just one. After the other allied inside the whole thing is is really good and there's some heavy heavy rockers on that one fifty is one of my favorite ones on there. Absolutely that is just a solid one so those are my overlooked that humans at least now never list. I've got now actually made a list of because will not did not confer about asia advance to make sure that we didn't have a bunch of repeats actually wrote down so i'm just gonna skip through a couple of them. I had little guitars from daughter down dirty movies now. Yeah yup is is a kind of overlook song in my opinion. I put the a political blues on there. I on that track. Yes from one to first of all to my knowledge. It's the only cover song that they did in the the hagar era on a studio album. I wanted to cover covered. Won't get fooled again on right now. Lives but in terms of studios. I think that's the only remaining that they ever did. I believe you're correct. That i can think of and it's a really obscure one. I mean that was an old little feat song but the reason i like it it almost it feels almost like a throwaway on first glance. If you really listened to it there's a really cool blues. He real own that that eddie's plan that that shows you some deaths that he he is that like we talked about earlier. That project with brian may he's not just one thing he can do. A lot of different things and that that is a pretty nasty little blows rhys a rip off on. That's all and i do. This is the era where we do see that versatility come out a little bit more like you said with fifty one fifty o you eight one two you start seeing these different shades of eddie.

But I knew that he had cancer that didn't know how close he wass. And And then when that tweet came out from his son, Wolfgang. That's you know, the world knew And it was a shock was the shop.

Jack White replaces Morgan Wallen as 'SNL' musical guest

"Van Halen last night on Saturday night Live The thing that people are talking about besides the fly sketch that they did to open this show, they spoofed the vice presidential debate you know with, of course, with the fly. Was the last minute musical guest that they got for the show. The original guest musical guest for SNL last night was supposed to be Morgan Wall in the country star. He tested positive for nobody. Actually, you know what he did not test positive for covert 19. But he had posted videos of himself. At parties kissing strangers, not social distancing. Prior to his the rehearsals for SNL, and the show made the decision to cancel him because he had put himself in so many Unsafe situations so they needed to find a new guest. Morgan Wallen admitted that he'd made a foolish mistake. That he put he put himself in that jeopardy and apologized. But they needed to find another musical guest, and I don't think they could have found a better one for last night, Jack White. Formerly of White Stripes, who Ah performed last night. But while he while he was performing, he was playing a guitar that was made for him specifically designed by Eddie Van Halen. And Eddie. This was his quote, and he was very kind to me and saw to it that this guitar was made for me to my specs. And he said, thanks, Eddie for the guitar rest in peace. Adding, I won't even insult the man's talents by trying to play one of his songs. But he did acknowledge Eddie Van Halen on DH, thanked him and played I didn't know that Jack White was as screaming a guitar player as he wass. I, You know, I've known him only from white stripes. Hey, was fine was perfectly, you know, good, exceptionally good. But last night he was channeling any fan Hale and he was His performance was completely phenomenal and add to it that he was playing a guitar that was designed by Eddie Van Halen that Eddie You know, make sure that he

Remembering Eddie Van Halen with Steve Gorman

"Joining me now is Steve. Gorman who was the drummer in the Black Crowes who now plays with trigger hippy and before we talk about some of the Black Crowes stuff in your book I. I saw tweets even it was talking about Eddie Van Halen, which is Kinda. Why you here you say there will be many many words written and spoken about Eddie. Van. Halen, over the next few days, weeks, months and years those millions of words will never come close to expressing what he meant a rock music what he meant to guitarist and what he meant to the guitar itself that's pretty powerful statement Mr Gorman what did Eddie and remind me to rock music I. Think it's it's pretty simple. You can say that he and Jimi Hendrix of the two guys. That truly, and and only the two guys that moved the needle for the guitar itself I mean Hendrix. came out of a blue based. seem. And took the playing and the tone he could get to a new place but even hail and. Really almost came in from another country. Another planet I should say another he's like an alien life form I mean, he was a virtuosic player obviously but he He reinvented what what you could do is to guitar and the fact of the matter is this. Like Hendrix. But even to a greater degree, anybody tries to play like Eddie. Van Halen. Just sounds like a mind a mimic they. It's like rich little doing Johnny Carson okay. Yeah. That kind of sounds like him but. There's nothing nobody's ever been able to do any van. Halen. Did it make it feel a certain way? That each just the and he was that way at twenty two I mean, this is this is not a guy like it's not like David Blaine magic tricks where he gets bigger and better every year he started with card tricks that other people did I even Halen hit the ground running with Van Halen one playing an instrument that have been around for centuries unlike anybody else had ever done I mean he was on the Mount. Rushmore. Of Great Depar- players. At twenty two years old and then, and then he stuck around for another forty years still playing unlike anybody before sin. So I just think that in terms of. You know. Sheer unique. Mindset ambition combined with just. Great talent obviously. But but also phenomenal work ethic I mean he's just a complete unicorn in every sense of the word. How would you describe his guitar sound and I say that I know what I think of it but I wasn't I just messed van Halen like I came around right as you guys were blowing up honestly so that for me the van Halen was slightly classic rock slightly old rock to me as A. Kid. So as someone 'cause, you're just years older than I am but how would you describe his guitar sound someone who was in in it and living it in love and Van Halen? Well I can tell you that that was thirteen years old the first time I heard Van Halen and I remember it. I remember where I was I remember who I was with. It was going home from school in Hopkinsville Kentucky. You really got me there kinks the you know the their cover, the kinks song came on the radio. And and it was playing already and I said, Hey, mom turn that up. It was me and my mom and my friend Brooke. Lofton. The three of us in a car and she turned it up and I my first thought was. That must be like a live version of the king song and I was thinking like we don't they don't rock or do they. But when it hit that Solo and then by the time, the song ended I realized well, that does that's not ray Davey seeing this is clearly a cover version but what on earth is this and it was like making my? Hair on the back of my neck stand up. This is a time when I thought punk rock was the coolest thing in the world. and. The truth is Van Halen was more punk than the punks because they were truly breaking down a bunch of barriers if you will or they were going in their own. You know there hasn't been a band like Van Halen since led Zeppelin in terms of. Rock band hits the ground running at full steam and it obliterates everything in their path in a certain sense and. Jimmy van Halen sound it sounded like California was in my head. You know soon as I realized soon as I heard about them, they're from La, and as soon as I saw David Lee Roth and then as soon as I heard more than you know the next thing I heard was eruption Guitar Solo and you know hearing just two pieces of their first album and seeing what they look like it just. It felt brand new and it already felt like they're going to be around forever. You just knew from the jump and this is me as a thirteen year old kid who is obsessed with music. This band is one of the Alzheimer's like there's nothing like this and they all have the chops and the other thing too as long as I'm just rambling incessantly any van Halen was a great rhythm player. It wasn't just about the Solos he led the band rhythmically and he's also it needs to be noted not that it's not obvious. He's a hell of a songwriter I mean he really was. As I said before he's a true Unicorn I mean, just just nothing like it. What does this sound like do you? It sounds frequent and right in right in the zone near your your key. That's one thing because listen I played a little bit I don't play even as good as my friends who are real life musicians, but it's perfect frequency and frequency is in the tone or the, but as because it's a lot. I mean Brad Paisley plays unnoticed Brad. Paisley. Because I hear the chicken Pickin I hear a very distinct sound and again I didn't catch van Halen as it was happening in my childhood. But when I hear Van Halen Song even if I, it's I, don't know who it is. Just hear the guitar part I hear the Eddie van Halen because I how fast he shreds but the pattern that he does it, you can just tell. By By his fingers and it just kind of again it's hard to explain when you ask about music but that's what I think about and I try to. Always try to. Prepare analogies and most of the people who listen to this podcast here between twenty to forty, and if you were to make an analogy to another band, it's GonNa be tough because Van Halen was massive. But who later on had the kind of? Impact or. Reflected the mass listening that Van Halen had well. What band what yeah. What band can we look at now or in the last ten years and see? Okay. Well, that's how big Van Halen was to the people that were the kids in the eighties.
