"Hearing the whole thing. It does emphasize to me that it's dead on to say two of the touchstones here are foo fighters jimmy world. You and i have been talking about it for a while. And i mean obviously there's a ton of influences and their stuff that only you can do a lot of that but when you think of what lineage. That's what it is. Tell me about like discovering those bands. It's not like you had to dig deep in the crates to find them. They're pretty popular bands. But you know discovering this bans personally really specifically what you kinda took from them as far as inspiration. Yeah when it when it comes to. I always had this dream of doing an album with me playing everything. Just like dave grohl. Did the first firefighters album. It was just a thing. I always wanted to try. It was always on my list of like this'll be really fun. And when i got back from the two thousand twelve Van halen tour. I was kinda just like okay. Well what do i do now. And i started writing like taking it seriously. And that's when i wrote the song mammoth and it was like okay. I think I think i'm onto something here and that's kind of where it all started. And just from from the band's. I would listen to all the time. Everything from foo fighters to jimmy world to nine inch nails to tool to alice in chains queens of the stone age. You know it just kind of those influences really seemed to inspire me and Yeah i mean th but with the main thing just the dave grohl doing that first fires album and just he. I always had an affinity to two bands like blink. One eighty two and and jimmy world. I really love harmonies. And i think that's where my love for like harmonies melody. Came from with bands like jimmy world. 'cause they're just so strong with that type of stuff so i really laid the foundation for me in terms of that. Mammoth which is a aptly titled. 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

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.

Do you know what I mean like? He just he was like I'm going to do this, and this is the this is my this is my whatever the technical term of it. This is what I'm GonNa play for a minute and a half this little riff here, and then I'm going off on my solo and I'm going off in a completely different direction and I'll bring it all back to the riff and it just it's brilliant man when you really just listen to the guitars it's such such brilliant on so many songs.

"Walking buddy the fly racing racer x podcast with Bo Bamberg freestyle. God, we're going to talk about Eddie, van Halen and his genius and his music and everything else that went on with Eddie, and we're really certainly sad about Eddie's passing eight, sixty five still way too young just a week and a half ago or so and if there's one guy that maybe loves that. Event him more than me. He might be Bamberg and on top of that students fucking really talented with a guitar, and so we thought we'd do something in Eddie's memory van Halen absolutely changed the game for me growing up whether it was nineteen eighty. I kind of got into a nineteen eighty-four to be honest obviously I knew about them what the first one but I was. Eight or nine, hundred, ninety four came out and it really it was awesome. Panama jump. Or phenomenal and then as everybody knows, I'm a big huge fan of all the Sami stuff fifty, one, fifty disc still number one CD I've ever owned and my favorite and fifty one fifty might be my favorite song ever. It's definitely my favorite van Halen song but that changes a little bit here and there but consistently probably. My favorite stuff grew up racing on it, put it on my headphones before my motos put it on while I worked out, put it on while I e bike ride. Put It on while I drove across the country for eleven years as a mechanic going to the different races I used to just blast it van Halen old stuff new stuff whatever it was it didn't matter and we're GONNA.

From from Buddy of mine freestyle legend Bo Bamberg what's up bow how are you? Good way to start. To Start Yeah I'm doing pretty good considering you know circumstances in the. Yeah. It's been rough man. It's it's really weird I. Got I gotTa be honest with Ya Never. I don't think I've ever really experienced. Something like that. You know like what someone dying that I didn't know you absolutely like how it actually affects you and then you don't really realize it until something like that happens of how much. You know that that that guy's actually part of your everyday life really like especially with me because. Like every room I go in the house or every. Time I listen to music every time anywhere I go I see I have striked guitar probably hanging in every room house. A poster or t shirt or a you know whatever man so it was A. Yeah I'm with you. If people WANNA check out we do a sound check episode, I wanNA. Say like a year and a half ago or so and we did some of our favorite halen songs on their. This isn't going to be that necessarily we might touch on that but go back in the archives just search sound check and bow. But when I get into on on that one, as well as for some of our favorite Eddie van Halen Tunes Yeah I'm with you man I the lead singer of one of my favorite bands Canadian band named tragically hip. He passed away three years ago. And Yeah and dude. I I had my grandparents passed away. That's about it. I have both my parents and I haven't had anybody really close to me pass away and this singer and now Eddie. I can't believe how much it's affected me for someone I've never met. I don't know them. They don't know me. It's very strange but. I just think of the hours and hours and hours I spent listening to music. Listening to Gordon he's lyrics try to think about them. And he's guitar playing and it's it's really weird right? Like why should it? It shouldn't affect you that much. I don't know it's just super weird and I was thinking about it when I first got the news and. You know obviously I was like Oh. Man Will Swing Place Muhtar right now or whatever picked the thing up and I couldn't even I really couldn't even play it to be honest with you and I started thinking about. Just how many hours of my life I've spent standing in a room just trying to sound like him yeah. I mean I- Countless hours posters on my fingers in light just tweaking knobs to to try to make it sound like him. And It's you don't realize what a big part of. My life anyway the was I guess it was like. It was just really weird like I. said, it never met him. You know anything like that but. You could say I guess borderline obsessed or whatever with with the music that he's made and. Really Weird you have satellite radio. In truck detractors has been doing nothing but Halen for city passed away. So that is not really left my radio since I got in into every time I get in my truck right now. Do you yeah, especially for Youtube Oh. Look I just listen to the music and grew up with it and loved it and listen to Sami stuff mostly some David stuff but you actually are a very accomplished guitar player. So yeah, exactly. Like you are sitting in front of a book or video and you're you're listening and you're trying to do it and you know you're trying to play what he does and how he did. And that I can't even imagine like you said, how many hours you have. That's insane. Yeah I really. I was thinking about it and I'm just like man like when I. When I'm really really trying to learn something it seems like with with anything else you know if I am jammed Zeppelin songs or black crowes. Rate just any other band like I seem to pick up on that stuff a lot easier and for some reason it. I just have to work in work in work to get. To get stuffed even sound close to how doing it. And I I don't know man like I said I've spent I i. don't know maybe thousands of hours probably just sitting here with a guitar in my hand trying to. Make mine sound like his now I don't know how much of a shock it was for you. I read something a couple. I. WanNa say two or three months ago either a guy from Cinderella or warrant or one of those bands. I don't know that well was gave an interview and said that he was told to go see Ed. While he can. And I'm like, Oh shit like that. That didn't sound good. You know what I mean. And you know we haven't heard any music while there wasn't any plans to tour for anything like that and people were asking David. David Lee Roth did a little residency here in Vegas before the covert thing shut it down. So I don't know did you did you know this was coming to or did it just hit you hard I? Kind of had that that interview I read where I was like Oh man I heard. Of Heard, his cancer had come back. Yeah. GotTa hurt some stuff too and you always hope that is not true. Right I. Mean because like. You know. He's He was like a guitar players. He was like are Superman nobody wants to that he's heard or sons wrong. But you that interview the David Lee Roth did and I think it was on either Joe Rogan her Howard Stern something like that was just basically like, oh yet you know we're done been done. Blah Blah Blah, and that kind of I kind of had a feeling. It has something to do with Ed's health. and. Yes I was kinda worried about it in. With everybody being so quiet on social media lately. and. In that camp anyway like I just got I kind of figured it wasn't you know what I mean, right? Yeah. More. More quiet than usual for the brothers.

"Fade guys just on a song. This is your first time to listen to our podcast. Welcome Michael I hate the fade. When a song fades we will call it out. Curse, we'll look at each other crossley. We absolutely will. Fade more than anything else and I'm not sure that anyone faded out more than men, Haley. Did they did a lot of fade outs especially during it's like really hard to say fuck. Hong. The producer just. So. Funny. So we've had some fun. We were in the same period for a while, and then we went forward and now we're GONNA go back to the album before the we are we just listen to in this. So this was an easy selection for me I grew up when we were talking earlier about Van Halen being on MTV and being on the radio. This is one of those songs that was always on Yes is one of those I mean you've heard me walking around the office for the last week trying to rock out the opening riffs to this because it's so much fun to play. This is a great song I read an interview with Roth where he said that a this is Panama by the way. A car in he said the car Panama is a country but this is a song about song about a car into he was interview. He said reporter said why do you only write songs about girls partying and fast partying in fast cars and he said he realized different song about a fast car. So he decided wrestling about a car. So I guess the reporter gets credit for the fact that we have this. Yeah. Yeah. On any other list made by the WHO's Van Halen Fan. Panama could be number one on that list. This is the consummate. Although it's not my number one track but this I think you could make the argument that this is the consummate David. Lee Roth Era van Halen I this week's all. Yeah, this trump either one I mean, this is these are hooks and this is all over the place and this is but this is Eddie van Halen and this is Eddie van Halen his. This. Is Eddie Van Halen kicking off the there's no act left when he's in the studio after this, they all had to go home. The asked was gone kicked tone and Rhythm and rift and everything about song is awesome. Sommese. wearable yet. So he doesn't these little things like we're here. Bills that he throws. Yeah and and that's what's infuriating guitar player is. Because I can play most of this. And then he throws in those little risks when the. gammit. Now, I gotta go work on this forever you know. So heavy and it's so cold, but it's also so. So fiery down like so much fire underneath `these so much energy mandated. That trophic row back there. Walmart. And, this is worth I'm Michael Anthony.

"Wait which is a song. By the way a lot of people don't know Al Wait was written with Michael McDonald From, the DOOBIE brothers Yep. But So Keith. I've asked you this before but I want you to kind of talk a little bit about Alex Van Cause Eddie's Great. We Love Eddie rest and peace, but the other half of the family there is Alex. and you WanNa talk maybe a little bit about Alex's drumming. Yeah thing you're talking about just the overall. Technique I mean he's responsible for. One of the greatest drum intro. Zabol time. Hot for teacher. Yeah. As rock as rock drummer as soon as you hear out of your suck Denman whether. It's an even as a non gummer. You should probably be like what the F.. What's going on there? I mean any kicks into a great. You Know Double Bass duffle. When does this thing I think he's Very solid rock and roll drummer nothing you go down in the you know as the legendary rock and roll drummer I think that he has a distinct sound I think he used a lot in early. Recordings use a lot of tape. So I, mean on his there was a lot of deadening of the drums which is par for the course and that day. I think he sounds like hisself. On a lot of the early recordings and as he grew as a player I think that he started like another reason I like the song finish. What you started is the fact where he's not playing straight screw like the always does a lot of song. He's pretty he's very pockets. He's kind of mess around with the beat a little bit this place in the snare, a lot of places having some like almost like a functioning to it I think he captured Asahi's are great song drummer do Solos and the added a lot of drums. Let. Me Not want I think the time I've seen him he had four bass drums. So I mean, it's just his thing. You know it's Alex definitely going to be good industry as one of those guys that just. When you look rock and roll. Drummer Jesus there on. Sandy's onto mount. Rushmore. But he's these there with the with the some of the top cats you know. Okay. When I think is what? What? What, what are the things I think? My van Halen weren't was they understood especially on the nineteen eighty-four era. The understood. Music Video. They knew how to make great music video. and. Hard for teachers come up many times. Again. In the video. Great. But you guys realize this a song that starts out with a drum solo. And then it doesn't go into the Song 'cause Guitar Solo. Yes. Very Very. Very, non like. It was a song formula me and it's not I I I. It's like here I'm Gonna I'm GonNa. Musically frigging drum your ass off. Then I'm GonNa go into an awesome which is going into the two handed tapping. Into some awesome Eddie Nece, and then we'll go into the song. After. We kick a little asks for probably up to over a minute leaks that couple minutes you know what I mean. You're looking at a few minutes of just asking and then you're going to break down. Part and then can dave comes in and does his Dave thing. So. that. Is Not really like a regular song. He's almost it's not rap, but he's kind of like sort of like telling a story it's talking yes. And then the really the real hook is when. The chorus and everybody loved that you know and it is kind of if you think about it though it is a little Rabi. Because it's about students having wanting to have sex or with teachers and teachers, you know may possibly reciprocating teacher needs a salad that's going. Back back in those days so much different because nowadays you have a completely opposite effect. So A to. That song might be considered like really politically incorrect in today's climate. Not Kill somebody it'd be offended. Let me ask you guys. Will there be any more guitar heroes. Somewhere yeah. Yeah that's should never stops it will come back. I mean somebody will eventually capture the attention of someone else again, and then they'll spread like a fire in a night these that term because the countries burning down but that's a it's a horror that says it's kind of a catches. It'll catch something catch a buzz but. You, see my shirt. You're not woke. You're annoying after. You going to get woke you go broke Yup. But but I mean it was an unusual time when people really were interesting but I was talking to somebody of the Dan I I sort of feel like there's been a second wave of guitar heroes it's just that the. Scene. is a little different but I mean I think he got to put up there Joe John Mayer, Joe Bonte, Masa Derek trucks these guys are like I'm a lot of younger folks really respect those guitar players Roy look up to them and they inspire like Dave. Inspired the next generation and who knows what's going to happen after that? It's it's a different scene. Now, we don't have MTV like we did we don't have the major labels, the big tours and stuff like that. So we kind of interesting to see. What kind of shakes out in the coming years. With music. Statistically. There should be one great guitar player as much as like modern music is getting pulled very far away from using guitar as a prominent source not only would that become essentially an tarik instrument that so uncommon that they can kind of do whatever they want like. The next one will shine so big because there's not going to be these giant flashy Awesome Guitar Solas. Competing with junk. Well there is. I. Think Qatar has gone in my opinion by made I think it's gone to youtube and then there's the super shredders like toes Abbassi and these guys that are just like sick out. He's fantastic I mean dislike can play like and you can hear when does those guys play miniature all the tap I mean You go back to be Kevin you remember Stanley Jordan. Black Dude I mean his whole technique was tapping an came out. That's post van Halen I mean you know definitely in obviously influenced By van Halen. Park cleared up late in the eighties and didn't get. It wasn't influenced by debate. Halen let me tell you some of it was blatant but I mean. Some of its way more subtle I just I want to close I want to leave guys with a couple of thoughts here about about Eddie van. Halen. I've I've gotten arguments about people with this but listen man. Eddie Van Halen not only reinvented guitar playing. He reinvented the sound of guitar all these guys playing really heavy metal the gent guys, extreme metal guys to thrash guys. There was no such thing as high gain and if your guitar player West you know what high gain is there was no high gain until Eddie van Halen started torturing those marshals with the various. And then other ant makers figure out how to do it without blowing up the amps and started building that in that changed everything and all the guys you hear now playing I mean you go to I mean Zach wild dime bag all those guys would we would not have had those guys if it wasn't, for Eddie and all the guys playing today telling somebody in facebook like I said like all these metal dudes are the sons and grandsons of Eddie van. Halen. Whether they have heard a van Halen song are not absolutely you're playing with speed and that kind of technique. He's the guy that set that standard. He put he put that boat in motion he like set it off. And everybody just kind of took it and ran with. You would not have had Warren de Martini..

"Yes. That's The first time. METALLICA. Capacity whatever regardless of what a lot of people have. Issues, METALLICA total metalhead. You don't like anything after two black. I'm whatever it just the fact where Metallica was always good cover band van Halen's the same kind of ilk where eight one eight do something such a good ban that they will do the covers from justice embarrassing themselves you know. Let's go. That's a good way to put it. So if you had to. Okay I won't make you A. We don't have enough time for everybody to make. Their own greatest hits but say you had to make a little. Van Halen EP. What songs would you say are maybe you're three to five essential. Okay. Let's put it this way. Let me. Let me. Let me rephrase it this way aliens come to Earth. And make this van Halen thing we don't understand it and you can play them maybe three to five songs. What songs would you pick? The go this is. Their most awesome stuff. Kenneth throwaway talking about love okay. West ain't talk about love got to be near that gets in my head. It's like Panama I can never get it out when I hear it say talk about Love Panama. What else? It's not your. Turn is. Everybody gets a turn. Got Another one. That Panama on. Talk about love. Or whatever the rest of the list would have to be eruption would have to be a hidden track just the tech like I. Like that eruptions hidden eruptions. The hidden track plays after it's all done. So what come on give me a third one coming gimmie three for sure jump junk kyle screwed up the song is in how happy it is. It's like the pumped up kicks on. I. I love it. I love it. Good one.

Another one that's just a face melter. I'm the one buying my favorite van Halen so I, love that I love that song. That, whole first album is ridiculously awesome. It's a masterpiece I think I mean. So does remind me not and then if you want to go a little bit later, I mean who the hell else I mean maybe people think Paul Gilbert did it people throw drill and some picks on a drill do pound cake you know that's always an interesting little home. Great Song with with both Sanger's and you know it's just mean even Garish Ron in somewhere. I want you guys to know that I had van.

Well, of course, a screamed out unchained. definitely like hot for teacher 'cause it inspired inspired me and I'm going to go with an obscure one here the full bug off of. Diver down. Yes. There you go. I would have to go with the. Idea of the hidden track eruption. So that will be in their that'd be a little surprise somewhere. I would definitely have running with the devil on there. I would have black and blue on there I would have. Done Anna. Done Donna. Dan, what's that? That's the world's best of both worlds. I would have that on there. I would have the one that they won the MTV Music Award for with the piano. was written for Joe Cocker for right now right now, and then as a bonus track to show how diverse they were and their sense of humor I would throw on big bad bill is sweet William now, and there it is I love. One of my absolute favorite things van Halen ever absolutely ever did. Never. We're GONNA sort of like take a little bit of a left turn for many here West is a musician. Been in a spin had several different projects but you've got a new project now and West I want you to kind of tell everybody about what it is that you're doing and like when it's going to be released and how they can get a hold if they're interested. l., the it's going to come out October thirty first on literally every pat platform you can find musical on Halloween nice the.

There's got to be rock. Go stories right I November. One there has to be so there was a celebrity ghost stories. Yeah. So there has to be like. Spooky Shit that happened on tour and I hate I hate to say a show that I'm starting to like I've watched two episodes love and it's priceless because we'll lose him one day and hopefully not too soon. But there's a show I think onto either on discovery or learning channel where Jack on born shows, videos of ghosts and paranormal activity to share in Ozzie Ozzie basically falls asleep for like two hours. Yeah. I've seen then he just goes he goes s man he just does his thing, but he just sits there and stares at him and makes spaces and basically fall asleep and he's like catatonic the entire time but it's still funny because it's like they're showing them all these things because Jackson Jackson that nowadays and Sharon just rambles on. Ozzy to sit there and just you don't know what's going on is he wouldn't care anyway. He's a he's a living ghost story. He's living goes right. So Let's go ahead. Why don't we go around the room? Take a minute and talk about I. Don't WanNa say what does it even Halen mean to me I don't WanNa say that but like why don't we talk about? The first time you became aware of Van Halen and like kind of like you're sort of first impressions of it. So we'll guy, let's start with Keith. For me I mean I'm a drummer but. There's some some guys are just so like their style and their sound and I. Got Older I started to get into like bass players with what what Bass player has really cool tone and they'd been hailing was always a person that as a guitar player. Stuck out to me like this guy's doing something a little different I mean going from the first record all the way into. The Gary Surround days you're going on the. Him To stop, they did last round daily raw. It's still an innovative. And people as. As as sometimes, people lose separate especially voteless any all sound sharp always seem to sound good and never really i. mean he might have been hammered at times but you know it's he always kept it together and always sounded. Like Eddie that's one thing about him soon.
"van halen" Discussed on The Eddie Trunk Podcast
"But. How are you man how you hold it up with this horrible news? I you know Eddie first of all hello and and second of all again like everybody out there in life the music community everything it's devastating I mean Eddie van Halen is besides going beyond the the the guitar. wizardry the the original playing the sound. The Guy was one of the few guys that can mix insane could car licks with writing great songs. It was like the perfect combination and I think all of us especially mead just devastated to hear the news and for his obviously his immediate family and friends It's just really it's painful to hear the news he's such a an unbelievable guitarist and guy. In the last twenty, four hours a little less since the news broke. In me it's really amazing to me Brad and maybe not when you given what I just said and what we know the impact was. But if you scroll through any social media that you use or whatever there isn't a person that was that is remotely in any way loving or connected to rock that this guy did not impact I mean I've. You've never seen anything like it when I've done and unfortunately, I've had to do a lot of these sort of tribute shows lately way too many that I. Wish. I wish. I was doing but this is one of those cases where there isn't anyone that doesn't want to talk about the guy because he meant so much to them. What was the first time and I'm asking everybody this what was the first time? You heard Van Halen tell me the story. I remember it beyond specifically. This is a true story. I I was at my Fred. Friends Ted. Zinc. Owes basement. That was his name mccan expert Pennsylvania and I remember being down there and we heard eruption. Heard option and then all of a sudden, his older brother owned the album and it kicked into, you really got me. You know that bound now took it out on now and at that moment, not that not that day that moment changed my life I was like it was the best sound I'd ever heard it was unbelievably court heard people talking about the album but there wasn't social media then so you heard it through. Word of mouth and that moment changed my life. Now being that I was a true up and coming really starving decision. I borrowed that record from Ted wrinkles older brother and I took a severe beating for taking that album home with me and it was worth every I took an ongoing beating for about a week and I gave the record back and they still took a beating, but it was worth every meeting I talk. Beating like verbally I'm talking about physical A. Couple of black is for getting the van Halen record of Mike McCready Mike McCready from Pearl. Jam was on just before you and he was he said something which blew my mind. He said to me that when he first started taking guitar lessons and his first lesson guitar teacher played a mirror option and I was like man talk about setting the bar intimidating. You as a player I would imagine for you. You're you're a young up and coming starving musician and you hear eruption and that to me would be like you know what? I think I'm just gonNa Front. The bed I think I'm just GONNA sing. To with. My first let me add to that story I can't. Take, it away but I can add to it my first guitar lesson, the right 'cause I love the guitar was at Sta Bil's music on Randall road, I went into take guitar and back then you could smoke. So the rooms were the size of your maybe a small compact car yet a little plug in and the guy was smoking a cigarette setting into chair I went to play some a little that. Early early Zeppelin Sweet Home Alabama and they said, no, no. Follow the notes and I played Mary had a little lamb. You know a little bump bump bump and I'm like no no no no. That was my one and only lesson I went straight to the class act right after that I went to scare van Halen Zeppelin and and learn from listening and it is that is true stories gets and but it was when I heard that the rhythm guitar of you really got me and all of a sudden goes. On and kicked in it was i. can't explain you got chills my arm it was light changing. See. That's the thing I've been saying ever since yesterday the immediate Goto and I get it is great guitar player incredible playing. You know the hammer on the shredding and all that. Yeah. But also the songs without the great songs, the riffs I mean. For for all the talk about his lead playing the rifts were insane. But the whole songs you know better than anybody you be the biggest virtual versus virtuous on the world. But if you don't have great songs around it, it doesn't it doesn't mean as much and the thing that was so special about that Van Halen to me was it was this amazing player but surrounded by and built around great songs to this day that is great as when I first heard him. One Eddie one, million percent one that that's what I'm saying the songs held up the guitar playing out of this world and original like on your thinking and the cradle sudden you all these whole things were happening. You know and a little bit in the vein of that and I'm saying this with all respect that Hendrix they opened up a world Jimmy page they opened up a world of being creative with that guitar and an Eddie and Dave and Michael Alex could it was a chemistry and Sammy I love Sammy. There was mystery they're great songs and Insan- insanely. Great guitarists. It was great. It was the perfect Combo. When was the first time? You saw van Halen live. Well. Are you ready for this story? The this? How make I? I will give you the true story ever. So I'm in the car. At the time I drive down to the spectrum and Philly with Ricky rocket. Right, we here's his girlfriend. I'm my girlfriend we drive all the way down. We had boughten you're ready for this. The show was sold out we bought or tickets to a horse race. We we didn't know you could get scammed I ricky will tell you the story verbatim. We searched the parking lot and the guy that worked vein and who I believe I stayed in contact with for years and years even after we finally broke. He said we were really bummed out. We couldn't get into the show and he saw us out there and realize we had been scammed and he goes either great tickets twelve horse. This is like. It was like a horse race that had happened like a month ago but it looked like a concert ticket 'cause they retyped the van Halen like physically over it and he gave us four incredible seats on the floor and we went in there and it we got in there just as a show started and.
"van halen" Discussed on The Eddie Trunk Podcast
"If you do listen to that show, I have dedicated almost two straight weeks talking about and celebrating Van. Halen with a huge variety of artists, everyone from Neal Schon to Mike McCready to Tom, Morello to Sebastian Bach to Bret Michaels to Scott Ian to Tom Keefer and on and on and on. Have all come on the show and talked about Eddie van Halen I have talked about it in depth. So. Really to get overly in-depth with my thoughts today would be a bit redundant feeling and I'm sure you've heard all about it at this point. Only thing. I. Can say is You know in a nutshell of course, as I've been saying that Van Halen an incredible guitar player. But above and beyond that I think that sells it a little short because he was a great producer he was an all round great musician played multiple instruments a great songwriter, an innovator and inventor I mean so many things beyond just a great guitar player and I made the case. So many times you know you can have all the great guitar playing you want. But if you don't have great songs to go with it, it often doesn't matter quite that much and that was the thing about van Halen great songs, timeless great songs, and to me that is what was the icing on the cake those records are. As. Timeless as ever and we will always have those records sadly in the last twenty, five years not very much from van Halen but the good news is. Seemingly, a ton of material in the studios and the vaults never released. For many many years decades, van Halen have played things very close to the vest and not put things out like that will that change now if the family and the estate decides to change on that, well, we will have tons. Of Van Halen material for decades to come if they feel it's worth putting out and WANNA share it with the public that is only the decision of their the family and the people who control this now, which would probably be Alex and Wolfgang we will see what the future holds but the rock world rightfully. So mourning the passing of a true icon and giant. The likes of which we will never see again in the world of rock. and. I've certainly done that for the better part of week and a half on my daily radio show on Sirius. XM here on the podcast today I'm GonNa give you a tiny taste of that. And we may do a little more this next week I haven't decided. But interestingly enough some of the people that reached out to me immediately when Eddie van Halen passed away were not guitar players, they were singers. And yes, a ton of guitar players did as well. But I think an interesting perspective here will be from two singers to famous rock singers. We will bring to you today I up Bret Michaels of poison. Second Sebastian Bach formerly of skid row. Both of them have great insights and stories to share and love to share for Eddie. Van Halen and I thought. You know the logical easy path would be to bring you Morello or John Five or Mike McCready or some of these Guitar Heroes Neil Sean, all of which I appreciated calling in, and again, we might bring some of that next week. But I thought, let's take it from just a fan perspective from a lead singer on the impact of Eddie van Halen and Van Halen. So we'll start with Brett and then we'll follow up with Sebastian. Two singers. Had huge success and continued to have success in their.
"van halen" Discussed on Talk Is Jericho
"Was sick and we all talked about it for awhile but but he Just kinda go maybe it's not going to happen and then I'll send. Tigris now, and you know the whole we should like every day WHO's been I. It's so weird. I never even talks daddy never met one time, but he's been such a huge part of my life from beginning of me playing music like he was all ours because he wasn't just great tarp either. Throughout my guitar playing my music. My learning of using I I realized that one of the reasons why I always put on Van Halen instead of ingles. GIVES A. Tara any Eddie. was just a great guitar. Are Rich it was also a great songwriter and a great musician and all of the things set. At cared about it, he can listen to any songs like he cared about all carbs in all rhythms and auditor. So interesting and it was you know it's instead all week about and that's the thing too and I it just to kind of jump in. It's crazy because I, felt the same way that I did not just nine months ago when Neil Pyrrhic dies another huge I'm not a instrumentalist musician, my my music musical instruments, my voice. But when I heard about appear dying like this, fucking. Terrible and that was a huge surprise. But same thing there is some underlying you overtones and then a couple of weeks after that Kobe Bryant dies, and then here we are eight months later and Eddie dies. You have three guys that are legit could be considered the best of all time at what they do in deal in Kobe and Eddie three within this time frame I was like you know Ozzie and frigging Gretzky better go hide in the bunker somewhere you know get out of this year. But. Here's what I was thinking. If I wanted to get into this and you mentioned what Russia tumble, what Eddie was a musician, but it was more than that and let's talk about this because I think it's something you guys will all understand. Van. Halen isn't just a band van Halen changed pop culture in a smaller way but a similarly that the Beatles did. When van Halen became a very popular rock band suddenly they became synonymous with what rock and roll is whenever you watch the movie at that time frame fast times at Ridgemont high speed holy at the end he loses his reward money because he spends it all on Van Halen come into play his birthday party you know even bill and Ted they want Van Halen van Halen's and back to the future in Van Halen's here van Halen became synonymous with good time rock and roll. And, not the same way that it did with the other bands that were hot at that time in the mid eighties of priests and made in. Scorpion. Scorpio. They had a little bit of an evil twin to it. Van Halen had none of that. They had. We're GONNA have chicks in bikinis and we're going have. A giant in a an effect guy and a skinny guy, and it's all GonNa be a great time and that's what Van Halen to me is more than just the music he became part of Pop. Culture Lexicon. Do you agree with that? Totally I knew Steve One hundred percent man main. Van Halen was they were in the eighties as far as I'm concerned. I mean as far as eighties rock bands because every rock band that came after him copied them. We all did we all wanted to be van Halen I wanted to be Eddie van. Halen, I, know I know Satchel did I know billy did you know how could you not they were fucking coolest thing ever you could not touch any no ban came near them as far as the attitude the fun and that's the cool thing Chris. I think he stumbled upon. A great. You didn't stumble upon and it's the truth that they were in when you crossover when you're in motion pictures and you have references of your band and your music is in major motion pictures in the eighties you've crossed way you're in pop culture. That's way bigger than hip parade magazine they were definitely a good time Dan. When you heard Van Halen you thought or I did I thought about just loud Guitars Party and California good time rock and roll chicks. You know what? I mean I love and I love it. I think you're right. Chris that they they captured a moment in time and. Like the aesthetic, right like like James Dean did you like certain people are synonymous with something and I think it was just because you had this incredible musician songwriter in Eddie who partnered with the personification of of West Coast Showbiz and he was one part, Barnum Bailey Circus and one part Robert Plant, and like he just had all of those things that made him the perfect vehicle for the van Halen brothers and actually today's the car little bit just doing we've all been doing assured his revisiting these albums. I was actually really surprised at how leads I overlooked even because the van Hillard brothers the same thing as Lepanto terror anytime you have just these I- tonics of musicians. It's the same reason why you know Getty and Getting. Obviously the professor get all of the love. Your House is one of the greatest guitar all times but unfortunately because you have those other Jews but I was listening in Michael Anthony's baseball incredible. They are they ruled the chemistry of that band was perfect and there is just not being wrong with it and it was just I think everything about them the timing and the fact that at that point in time there was something magical about what all Americans thought about California and Hollywood, and again encapsulated that that kind of picturesque idea with the. Whole. World when they thought of California's about American flag bikinis and long hair like just like you said, the SPEC holy attitude and I think they they were the only band that was able to do that. But without dealing like it was a joke like it felt like it was real urine saying sometimes there's the Epcot version of bats which feels cheesy and you know it's like it's overblown and then there was van he earned they walk that tightrope and I think that's why people really love them because they were the ultimate American dream escape. A, this is Charlie it what the anthrax and this is me talking about one of the greatest if not the greatest guitar player to ever come out of. This, World Eddie Van Halen. I'M GONNA take it back to the early days of me being a huge kiss led Zeppelin Sabbath Queen Fan and then I heard this song. From my next door neighbor. And it was fucking Jamie's crying and. Just like to drum sounded even noticed talk until later but this. A Solo in it, but it's not like a eight Alan complete assault on your on your senses Solo and I looked at the album cart run I just had to have it and in eruption came on and that was it. I couldn't understand what was going on but I just knew I loved it and. I got a taste of what? fucking excitement sends like on record. You know I mean. So many records have excitement on a van Halen. Sound like a fucking party going on with their their albums. which I loved to this day. Those little things those little ad libs those. That they put on their record just made it sound like. These guys just came in the studio. They took the party to the studio and hit record and there's a song and that's the way I always felt about that Ben. First Time I. saw him. My neighbor nick his mom took ghost. She drove us to the Nassau Coliseum. The See van Halen Nineteen, seventy nine. And I was only at a few concerts throughout those years because I was still young. And this was one of the first ones I. She dropped us off we went and had fucking ball when they came on. It was just a different level of different types of excitement from me at shows. There was just so much energy coming off of that stage and just seeing them in person and seeing do these Solos. And these jumps. It was just amazing. Alex hit his fucking gone on fire and it was. I just couldn't get enough of them and I never miss them every year after that. So they definitely have a place for me. When I think of Allen I think of my childhood and just experiencing like I said excitement every time I saw them. I would always get the my arm would stand up because something would happen. That would make me go whoa right there. That's something that I'm going to take with me forever and That's what Van Halen..

"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 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.

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.
We love you Eddie

"van halen" Discussed on Rock N Roll Archaeology
"Now I picked this song to illustrate a point about van Halen. It's a little more of an abstract point, but I picked this because it's often cited as the greatest van Halen Song of all time you know a lot of people do these polls people love this song they love Means Street What else is up there? Cradle will rock is usually up there pretty high ain't talking about love but basically, the point I want I want to make with my second pick is van Halen through being so great and making so many great albums so fast and in. In a in a kind of a void where there isn't a lot of rock coming out of a out of California California's Kinda dead for rock I mean the last big movement that came out of California was the Avocado Mafia with the whole You know singer songwriting thing in the troubadour and the Eagles and country rock and folk rock and all that. But then Halen brought with a bang excellent excellent hard rock back to California by being in La banned by making record and seventy eight in a record seventy, nine, eighty, and eighty, one and eighty, eighty, eighty, one. Eighty two something like any yeah, eighty two, that's right. So sober like five records before hair metal even started. So I I want to give Eddie van Halen and the band the credit with the second track of basically shifting the Fulcrum in the end. The attention back to California and California is now going to have a massive heyday with the whole hair metal scene, which is gonNA. Last all through the eighties all the way up until Nineteen ninety-one like California is the focus. The nexus again of hard rock or all rock in general I mean London always has its time but you know England basically you know at least in our our small orbit and probably a number of orbits But definitely this one, there was the new wave of British heavy metal and soon as that door shut around nineteen eighty three on that the the the focus shifted back to California, bands would move to California all from all over America to try to make it and. This is Van Halen van Halen essentially You know they're the major inspiration for the entire California hard rock hair metal scene that that that kicked off basically in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, three with the likes of docking in rat and quiet riot. It's all van Halen's fault and and to their credit I. Mean as a bridge bend in there. You also have motley crue as well. But but but certainly, you know out of nowhere comes this great band and they're just. Doing you know doing lots of records and what when there's no one else around. There's maybe Sammy. Hager. Somewhat around there's Ronnie Montrose and gamma not a lot of hard rock that is that you know people that are making records of this stuff and so so credit van Halen for essentially you know making California. The center of the music industry again for a a solid gold and platinum ten years. Alright with that. Let's take a little break and we'll be right back. Hurry here we are back again on kind of sad episode of history and five songs with Martin Popoff. We are celebrating the life of Eddie Van Halen who died today as we speak.

It's I don't know I think it's a groove and song then I will always love the feel of it. Love the lyrics I always loved the the background I. This one thing that I keep coming back to that Halen his like I think without this background vocals they just they could kind of very easily just been like a great band like a cool band with a great guitar player this vocals that makes it. So insanely catchy pop I love I think song even though it's a song about a girl who's like upset because like you know he banged her and then you know never called her again and she's like she wants to send him a letter and stuff and he's like. I don't even know what your name is Jack Jamie. Which Jamie That it's the Super Fun, kind of like vibe to it. It's insane. What's next. Next is atomic, Paul. Yeah. Eddie's guitar fireworks. Song. The use of the word punk is in the title it's interesting because they don't even like punk and it's not even a song. They have repeatedly expressed their disdain for punk and interviews. It's an underrated song on the album that moves from Dave sorta foreign ball routines leaning a more post apocalyptic story. About. The band in like this alternate. Apocalypse Universe, which is Kinda. Cool. That they didn't just do Saxon this. Justice Saxon. It's not about sex. What do you? What's the world coming to let the school man? I'm glad later on down the line and like eighty seven, eighty, eight, I'm glad that Guns and roses did their version of the song homes Brownstone. RJ. So there's controversy I'm not aware of this. Controversy. Here in the beginning. That's all. I heard the same like guitar affected. It's going on. It's definitely a lift I think I mean what hasn't been what hasn't been done at this point? Well, I, mean, if you're gonNA, I, mean, like I said everybody comedies Van Halen. Every every guy after one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, eight, who had been who's a guitar player had big records and stuff. Oh, some little wee bit. To to Eddie sorry and even metal guys. Now because that amplifier he designed with PV is like the staple of so many heavy metal albums. So many heavy metal bands use that tone. Eddie van Halen. It's still being heard even today. What's after Tomic, Peng after atomic punk we have Feel your love tonight. It's one of those testosterone filled Ot young lust. There would be no on skinny bob new lay it down if this song wasn't a thing i. The song is a fleeting moment of partnership with the clothes. Come off is the end game and the theme of the whole Song Sex It's super catchy, but often looked over because they have had so many. Already amazing songs on the album. So it's just sort of. By the wayside a lot of the time but it just showcase Alex's drum i. also think to the song the the album is all killer no filler. Yeah. Feel your love came. I mean, what would what world be without on skinny pop you know what I mean. I'm just saying it wouldn't exist on. This again. That just has that. hoppy Hook harmony lines going on every frigging song as Michael Anthony just. Blending that voice with whoever you know just like David, Lee Roth and he does his game when later on Sammy I mean his voice blends with whatever it's like a fine wine. It just goes with whatever you WANNA pair with but his voice is just sample layered on top of that stuff and it's amazing. How like you said? And I agree with you on this one that they can they could have been just like A. Guitar driven bad ass bands but with those. frigging. Harmonies going on top of all that stuff that's Put them where they needed to be for a while there have Dan Halen was you know? Yeah. You. Can't cover van Halen without great background vocals and just like you can't cover ACDC without a great rhythm. Guitar. Player. You know it can't be done can't just just can't it can't and I love this next song when he got little dreamer. All dream written before. They met Ted. Templeton songs that shows van Halen isn't just a party rock band. It's sort of like one of the first power ballads that came out at the time and it's showing off deal are actually singing rather than squealing. Which is Nice And it's just about someone who faced with whose face with the reality of loss. Promise. Little Drummer Keith anything. Any comments? Another pop masterpiece off off the record is good straightforward like you know but it's a nice mid tempo song. It's not crazy heavier nothing that's just got to. Say, it was like. One of my faves on her but it's definitely a good poppy poppy little number snappy snappy snappy at first for lavery speaking of snappy. What's next ICE CREAM? Covers John Sitting back. To keep you cool cover, of John, Brims Fifties Arab Blues Jam. It has been sung by long before was the thing and considered by the band sort of his pre band Solo Act, but it does fit into. Van Halen sort of formula what they do. He loves the song his tribute to the Blues. I plays the Acoustic Guitar on it for the first verse. Of course, he dedicated that's dedicated to the ladies and because it's very Raunchy if you listen to the lyrics. Gene Simmons actually didn't like the song when it was presented for the demo, but they recorded it anyway, and now it's a part of history. Banana Dixie cups all flavors and push ups. It's all dirty. Dirty ice cream that's that's I mean don't you remember the song that Aerosmith did all various Did an old blues song to. Ten inch record. which was, which is an old song regionally recorded by Bull Moose Jackson, which has a filthy song. And a lot of people don't realize the to the song like Hound dog is filthy song to. By everybody because it was the fifties. Onto and there's some about the blues man a lot of blue songs man that are really like code for getting it on doing the dirty doing the dirty you think ice cream man Keith. This is Just kind of sits there for me. I mean that's just like a bits of Lusi like just. Tune I mean it's funny I've never heard it. Appeared still to this day probably DD price still plays the crap out of it. It's one of them songs that'd probably just take. One place for example, it's probably being played on every Damn Classic Rock Station number, and again it's a song that I think. It's just like as long term. Sorry I'm only thing doesn't do it for me. I really like it and I think it's also sort of a to fund song but.

"Everybody's like the kind of the right thing at the right time you know what? I mean like music musicals changing and they were their. Narratives Show. Let's talk about the next song the next song, which is always followed by the first song on the radio or the last song on the radio. Was You really got me bans first single and it's an updated cover of the song by the king who had done it fourteen years earlier popular radio that help them jump start their career Eddie doesn't liked it. That was their very first song. He's little label put that as if you WANNA Jamie's crying to be the first, which wouldn't have been a bad for singing. That's a great song I mean either way but they have a cover song. It was a result of an encounter by Eddie van Halen and the members of the band angel. Specifically. Berry brand who was the drummer they had both been bragging about their. New. Material. They had coming out and Eddie ended up showing the demo of the song the following day Ted Tumble Mental Van Halen that the band angels putting out a cover of the same song to release before Van Halen as a result. Right as a result, the song was rush released as a single before angel could do it and. I'm going to guess a lot of people don't know the band angel but. They obviously didn't do it before them. So they van Halen wins. Angels, she didn't have any that hail. If they go we be wrong. Angels I could be completely wrong but I mean look at look at won the battle of the song gummy. Song battle the release. Do you like the. So what do you think of this? Ghaith, do you remember hearing version of it? That's a good version. I mean. It's definitely affect the the original has a little bit more growl to it with the guitar tone I mean definitely Eddie. Suited up I think the kings versions cool as like you know that told British beat thing but it's It's definitely like you're version on steroids will serve. It's definitely an amped up version of it. At School and daily daily those are thing on it. So it's It's it's a great coverage has been halen like other great bands of you know the pats fans that are. So many great rock and roll and hard rock bands of all time. Van Halen like metallic always likes to. Cover here and there, and they've always had coverage on records or done and Metallica say done whole friggin of covered but Dan Halen. The Dabble in the cover. In a Jonah, if you will that Min-. Definitely have longer records and it's an pick for something. That's you know they could easily knock out of the part. Dave Davies reportedly did not like Van Halen version. I'm sure he did. Check this Zach. This is hilarious. Somebody care apparently somebody came up to Dave. Davies. At a concert after one of their shows and said, he'd loved their great cover of the van Halen. Song you really got me do you think that really irritated him? Because I don't like excuse me you guys did that Halen Song then cool. That tell you what way Ueno sometimes. Cover songs can better. Get get done better and I'm Dave debut. Good. They're anywhere near any van Halen he probably couldn't carry US frigging Gig but I mean, it's it's one of those things where it's It's just a good cover. He's not like my all time fave I mean but it's A. Cover of Classic Rock Song Yeah. I loved it. I think both versions like when I was a kid I definitely love. Van. Halen version better. But as I grow up I, I really liked the kinks version two and I hear the sort of like merit of both the kinks version is a little like said, has more grou- has almost kind of a punk rock kind of like nasty kind of thing to it. Well, you know. There's like that old story about him cutting. Guitar, hamper like. Would if I for. Would Talk Speaker and you know it's Made X. come out. Sounded all crazy and that's you worked out for them. So that's good. What's next on the list little next on the list is talking about love. He Eddie wrote the song didn't consider it good enough to show his bandmates until you're after it was written. He said, it was supposed to be a punk rock parody didn't sound punk at all This is one of the few David Lee Roth Era Songs Sammy Hager was willing to sing in concert when he joined the band in the mid eighties that's all I have on that. I mean I like the song that's an insane Song Medicine Insane Riff, and there are tons of youtube videos devoted to how to get the Ain't talking about love guitar sound. because. There are certain affects it uses and people to this day here spending outrageous amounts of money for that Flan Jer that he uses on those two notes and the phase shifter they use that very famous and I had to go buy one I had to go by phase ninety because that's what's on eight talking about love I add have it. What a sucker man you could the next Sorry but this this this song has little bit about the soft bought for me. It is born I. I learned how to play on drums. Actually it's more than songs. I can remember going back today and trying to like work that out and Get some bills and everything together. So thanks. Thanks. Alex. Thanks, Alex what's what's next? Next is I'm the one. Rate Vocals on this I'm the one. The first album hybrid had been started but nothing that energy and they decided to end this side one in the same fashion actually the whole albums energy. One of his favorite Guitar Solos is this track This is sort of on rb jazz sort of infusion song super energetic. I'm told it's one that's very hard to play. Correctly I don't know because I'm not a guitar player It was done all through their club days and beyond and when you see Roth front the song, it's for sure his alternate like. peacocking. Four yes. Four non blondes covered it for the nineteen ninety-four film airheads and a lot of people didn't even notice that it wasn't van Halen doing that song. So. Well. Van Halen is a very distinctive band. They're hard to cover. I mean when they switched singers even you know it was still like, Santa completely different Hersher. So you take one element out of Van Halen you really kind of have a whole new thing. Keith got any comments on I'm the one. Are. We going to get the rank and letter you we're. We're going to rank them? Dot. It's it's. It's. It's a great song. Let's move on. Okay. What are you guys? Next, we're on site to for those of you who had vinyl Jamie's crying. One of the best love songs by the band when it was released. As. The third single didn't even chart by nine, hundred, thousand nine it was sampled by tone LoC for wild thing and he's riffing Alex's drama reached a massive audience at that time It's one of those beloved one night stand type of songs with the girl wants more. You know you know those love songs but it was a concert mainstay during the deal our era for sure David Lee Roth. For those, you don't get Scott.

But tumble men overheard it in the studio and decided to add Eddie says he didn't play it right and every time he hears it he thinks he could have done better. Well, he says there's a mistake on it and I I want. One mistake is mistake on and it drives me crazy never gonna tell he's never gonNA. but I just I remember hearing that and going what the hell is this. Running with the devil didn't like already kind of like blow my mind. This was like Oh, my God I know where I got live twice and fighting and there were Qatar players. All through the seventy it, we're doing a lot of soloing Peter Frampton. Johnny Winner Rick Derringer Alvin Lee. These guys were like they were known for. Frank Marino they were all known for a long Solos and all kinds of stuff in their sets. But this this is like excuse me gentlemen. Let sit down in that chair right there and let me show you how it's done. And that was just like and get tired never been the same. As far as two hand tapping stuff goes I mean yes. Steve Hackett had from Genesis had experimented with it. But nobody did it the way Eddie did it? To create to create that that type of sound with as IOS and everything. and. Everybody wanted to do it after that and you mentioned Keith mentioned Vito Brata who was big to handicapper Steve Lynch. Autograph was a big to hand tapper who who, really you know capitalize on that technique. Your Lot. Lots of guys Keith. You want to weigh in on any of this. Yeah, you'd never see the video though. Talion, jazz player from Nineteen Fifty Ish late fifties who was doing that stuff on a big. Guitar two hand tapping killing it. That's funny because it's like so before Eddie, but he ever wondered that he he. Sometimes like really inventive kind of thing that everybody goes oh my God he was the first to do it or you know argue arguably this guy did it or whoever did it sometimes just a mistake man you just try things in your life. And it's something that's just leads something cool and you're like up at Jack and get A. Make sound different shut myself apart. So sometimes, things that became a trademark for somebody may not be there first pick, but it's something they've tried and succeeded Yeah. They were able to do something with it in a way that somebody else wasn't I have a podcast, go back about a year or so ago called why Eddie? Van. Halen may be the most important guitar player in the history of rock and roll and I discuss all of that stuff There was also the guitar player from canned heat who was famous for doing. Tapping on tapping on the net as well. But nobody did it I think I think one of the reasons why it works so well for Eddie was because of his sound that sound really kind of like allows the two hand tapping to kind of like kind of pop out without a lot of effort because using that gain and everything and you can. You can you have a lot of fluidity to to to be able to do that that because because of that that type of sound but that isn't all on there I mean he's also he was also famous for other techniques tremolo picking, and there's Tremolo picking all over eruption as well and people thought that was so insanely fast. Now when you fast forward in history a little bit and you hear people like Michael and Michelangelo Badio or even Steve I and these guys like that who really play like maybe seven times faster than Van Halen you know to us or our ears maybe the sound that fast. But at that time. That's what kicked off this sort of like nuclear arms race of Guitar. Who could play the fast? So you know you come, you come down to people like Jeff Watson and Brad Gillis from night ranger who are both amazing. Tarpley's both heavily influenced by Van Halen and it just captured.

Those lyrics from a song called neighb- recorded by Black Sabbath in one thousand nine hundred seventy hi I'm FAO Hsun and today. We'll talk about satanism. In Popular American Music Wikipedia Satanism page states the following prior to the public practice satanism existed primarily as an accusation by various Christian groups toward perceived ideological opponents rather than a self identity religious studies scholars say that the very definition initiative the term has a history of being designation made by people against those whom they dislike. It is a term used for uttering and in the Bible Satan and the word was used as an ordinary noun. Meaning the adversary the terms satanism and Satanist I appear in English and French during the sixteenth century and Satanism didn't become an official religion until nineteen sixty six when the Church of Satan was established by Anton Levay besides being being a philosopher and occultist Levy was a musician who played multiple instruments including the Oregon in addition to his infamous satanic mass album. Other other albums would be released by levay in the nineties. This leveraging of music by the very person who established the Church of Satan made historical sense in context particularly Italy regarding art and entertainment where the concept of Satan has long been used as a symbol of expression. Many classical compositions were said to be vehicle for the the devil particularly due to the use of a specific combination of notes. A unique cord within music itself that was associated with evil. Known as the Devil's record the notes when played together has many other names including Diablo's in New Jersey. GotTa Latin for Devil and music or the devil's interval. The Tri tone the tree and the Flathead v basically. It's a combination of notes that when played together in accord become the musical equivalent of the Hebrew. GBD'S ABC's the court can be found in compositions from Beethoven and Wagner and even jazz composition such as the girl from EPA Nima and the Song Maria from West aside story fender dot com actually gives budding guitarists a tutorial on how to create the devils cord and it serves as a great description of what it is so our read it quote in simple terms tripod or yod is a fifth played.

It creates a dissonant or ugly tone especially with distortion and that that is the devils cord in their infancy. The genres of Blues and Jazz were routinely referred to as the Devil's music partially due to the innate rebellion within the sound and the lyrics themselves but also partially due to an institutionally dehumanized regard of black musicians and black people. In general neural. The devils cord first appeared in rock music when Jimi Hendrix used it in the opening of his classic Song Purple Haze it would later become a staple in the repertoire are black Sabbath. Who are cited as one of the pioneering bands of the heavy metal genre and it would be heavy metal that took the devils cord and ran like a bat out of hell? Oh with it with numerous metal bands. Such as Metallica slipknot and slayer who even named their nineteen ninety eight album. Diab Bula Sin Musica but it was black black Sabbath perhaps more than any other modern band that may the devils core part of American mainstream music the band which like every rock band at at the time was originally rooted in Blues. They first called themselves the Polka Tall Blues Band and then later they call themselves earth it was the latter name Earth Earth that presented a challenge as it was being used by another English group at the same time they were also inspired by nine hundred sixty three horror film called black Sabbath. That started the legendary Boris Karloff. They saw that a local horror movie. Theatre had a line of people waiting to buy tickets and intrigued by the appeal of this type of content. They went ahead head and wrote a song also titled Black Sabbath. The lyrics were based on a horror story and a nightmare. One of the members of the band had these horror movie lyrics combined with the foreboding introduced by the devils core helped the band create an unprecedented experience in music. According to Wikipedia the new sound was a a quote stark contrast to the popular music of the late nineteen sixties which was dominated by a flower power folk music and Hippie culture and an attempt at creating the musical equivalent of horror films and quote the commercial success of this new sound came despite being initially critically panned hand along with marketing stunts such as releasing titles on Friday the thirteen and recording music in dungeons it was clear. The dark side and music was connecting connecting with audiences it would be black Sabbath commercial embrace of the devils cord along with horror and demonic symbolism and themes that influenced every metal act that followed and laid the groundwork for every sub genre from the blackest and truly demonic to grunge to popular bands such as Nirvana van Halen soundgarden and Marilyn Manson

"Really side holidays you don't like swearing, but I just think that means that emphasis because we weren't forgetting what so important. Let's talk a little bit about why I think that let me sort of justify my my position here. Any van Halen? When he when when van Halen came out when we when Eddie van Halen came out, he revolutionized several aspects of music kind of it once. First of all. He his playing style was different. Cool riffs with a lot of like open string stuff going on cannot just like chunk along and power chords. Which is kind of which was kind of a lot of bands were doing up to up to any kind of brought back the riff in in a lot of ways. But Eddie did something different. He played with both hands on the neck of the tar what became known as two hand tapping. And he there's been arguments, you know, guitar players are crazy. You know, any man Helen didn't do that. I I saw Django Reinhardt do that in nineteen you know. Right. Okay. There hasn't been probably tar player live that didn't one time fret down and take a finger atop the neck and go, oh, that's a cool sound, but that's pretty much as far as it went. What what Eddie did with that type stuff was he was able to create the kind of do things with our pays you, really?.

This time we could talk do know the video on what I think might be a good path. I think it be fun for them for for at least Eddie detri-. But. What I think everybody misses in all this stupid nece surrounding this amazing band is any fucking van Halen. That's what may look look. Listen, guys. There are it's like expected. I mean, some guys are old remembers. I think you guys can can relate to this as well. You know, when a band comes out you're expecting like good songwriting good singing good playing. I mean, that's like you wouldn't you know, you don't wanna hear shit. You know, you you if it's coming out it's being cranked up on your rock station, or on rock radio on the internet, or whatever it is that there's a certain standard, you know? It's going to be good. Okay. And there have been tons of bands before van Halen and after van Halen there, really good, man. They have the whole thing going on. They've got the cool riffs. They've got the great songwriting. They have the the great frontman. Great background. Vocals. Awesome rhythm section. You know? That's like that's a given. Like better have that you know. And that HALE, and of course, you know, the, you know, they they have all that, obviously, you know, but van Halen like for them. That's like that's just like the baseline. That's just like the an army baseline isn't a bass guitar. I mean, that's just the base line of of music for them mainly because of Eddie fucking van Halen. He's the this is what everybody doesn't realize is like I said, there's always great. There's been always group bands on it there. But how many of them have Eddie van Halen in them one? I mean, Eddie van Halen is to van Halen as to what Jimi Hendrix was to the Jimi Hendrix experience. Mitch and no great musicians but without Jimmy Hendrix. They're just like kind of like a couple of cool guys who can. Play. Really, well, but they're not really anything special. What makes van Halen van halo? What made them special was Eddie fucking van Halen..
