"van halen" Discussed on Talk Is Jericho
"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..

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.

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.

"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.

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.

"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.

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.
Wolfgang Van Halen on his Debut Album and Influences
"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

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.

"van halen" Discussed on Chris and Rick Talk Guitars
"Also here's doing. I'm like oh you know because my i had such a a literal Perception of guitar playing. You got the pick in your right hand and you're fingering chords in your hand. That's what you do right you straw and you play. It never dawned on me that you blake tap in with your right and then so until. I actually saw it physically happening. I'm like okay that that's what's going on but no it was just more curiosity. You know like how's he doing that. You know the other thing. That was kind of odd for me back. Then that i noticed was I was really the montross and always thought that the montross record was like well. Let me put it this way. I have this thing that i've said over the years like my favorite van. Halen record is the first mantra joke. A total joke. But if you look at it here we have this tag kampelman produced record. That is named. The band is named after the hot lead guitarist that does like make motorcycle. Noise isn't pig squeals and all this other stuff is the parallels are pretty. They're there. And i've never heard eddie van halen mentioned montross as kind of an influence but always saw that as a big influence. I mean compare. You know ronnie montrose. Nettie then van and there's gonna be a lot more differences than our similarities. That whole thing is just kind of destructive. Has like it was like an aha moment for me. It's like hey that's you know very in the melody. that's one thing that i really hugely melody and hooked oriented and i think man halen was very hooky. They have but. I think it was the way that you know. The pirate techniques around the hooks. I found a little bit distracting. Didn't allow me to absorb the hooks as fully as it was something else of that nature sense it does make sense but no i mean and you know i. I've often found myself saying well. I like you know. I like michael schenker because he was really melodic. But eddie van halen really melodic capable of like yeah gave them of anything. He can play just about anything but i think he had tended to. Just do you know put more just more facts and things into in the context of a song been like michael schenker woody who had laid back so that's probably what speaks to. That's probably why sinkers spoke to me more. Because i'm kinda more of a straight ahead like you know person. Yeah and i totally hear that too. And i think i is come down on. That's on shankar side to for for those reasons. Yeah i think especially as as time went on. I think he was. He was just trying to fill space more and more. And it's like dude. You don't need to fill that much space. you know. I understand what you're trying to do. I understand what you tried to do in the early days because essentially musically it was a trio right. it was based on guitars with a vocal. So he was trying to fill space which is cool you. you know. that's something you think about when you're a trio but yeah i think a lot of times. It was unnecessary. And but but i think he is terms of alum melodic player. He he definitely was a lot of. I think if you listen to a lot of cool stuff like the intro to women in love on the second album that Harmonic tapping eastern is actually a really cool intro to that song and it's very melodic and it's really cool. I think there were a lot of like if you listen to his records. Their little flashes of lake really brilliant. I think in terms of melody and and what he's doing that. I really take away and just really appreciate you know and the night away. Hello yes there's more hooks than a big job in totally bogged now especially that one. There's still a bucket of whenever i hear right now and just you know i. It takes me right back to that time. I remember urine dance. The night away blasting over like a at a dance school or something like that. And it's just that's just so a bucket of of time you know wondering that's really when you're saying that i thought or something that i experienced maybe three years ago or so my life or a a gallery of antique galleries shop and she has intershop. She has a turntable with a huge shitload of like old. Lp's and sometimes i was in there after they close knows hanging out and i'm like i'm going to put on record so i went and found the green one that has want on it unless it was that women's and i think is okay all right so women children i put that on there i listen to it both sides m i thought was you know i don't i don't like this all this seems like Like he's phoning in. Because i'm like. I'm hearing like riffs that he did on previous records. Just kind of put it in there and mixed up a little bit and it seemed like a berry like somebody just putting something together. Just guitar for guitar sake. And i'm like At that moment in time it did not really speak to me. And i thought i don't like this record at all and after eddie van halen past. I was very surprised to see some people who icier musical tastes with a great singling out that record as one of their favorite gertz which just goes to show you thing. That's so cool about music is it speaks to people in different ways. And the other thing is like music is like lsd. It's sometimes it's about settled setting so it could move that i was in at the time. It just didn't speak to me. But i actually listened that record. I'm thinking i had a picture of eddie van. Halen listening to all his reviews sticking guitar. Parts is like what can i use. I need something here. Let me grab that from this. Let me read that in the song and put it in there. And i didn't like the record at all on that particular. Listen so it's really interesting to see. I mean we're all different. You get different things from music and there's people out there that that record spoke to their favorite record. Yeah that's what i think is interesting about it too is just like you're saying i've talked to so many people about van halen and they'll mention mentioned album that i'm like he getting diver down or some weird album. It's like okay. That's your favorite like you say everybody's different everybody one of the coolest things that i experienced my friend mark and i went to the reunion show. They did what i think. Two thousand fifteen or something like that you know it was with roth. Wolfgang was on base. We had to go. Because he and i had seen the band when they first started we saw him open for sabbath here in seattle. You know when they were just starting out and it was insane. So of course we had to go to the union show and it was it was mixed bittersweet because they're all old dudes up their daily rosters looked like an old man can puttering around on stage but it was still it was still cool to see but These people next to us had never seen the original lineup right. They were younger than us than they'd they'd probably seen the hagar years and stuff like that. And so mark and i were more than happy to let tell them all of our exploits from the seventies going to see the original lineup of the band and they were just they were just You know blown away and they were they. Were you know they were happy to hear all are ridiculous stories about you. Know how we'd gone to see them in the early days so it was kind of neat to be next to these people who they were going to see at least a close facsimile of the original lineup but not quite but it was kind of neat to see them so excited to see that you know mark and i had seen the original lineup. But it was. It was cool man. It was insane to see that lineup lives. It was really cool if you talk to people that have kind of seen them. I never saw hagar us. Because i i just i don't care for that year at all or the or the totally unmentioned gary sharon years but that original lineup. Seeing that live was really cool in like l. a. and stuff when they were just getting started just how many jaws must hit the floor. Oh yeah india. Posted that link to that.

This was one of Jason's top five Eddie Van halen songs. Okay. Here we go. Okay. Hail. That have been hailstone that's because it's not why is that not sound like a van Halen Jason So. When Michael Jackson was ready to record this album right. which by the way became the number one album that year. And Dan Halen at the number two spot. Quincy Jones. Called Eddie Van Halen. And ask him if he would come play on. Michael Jackson. Eddie van Halen did an interview about this two, thousand twelve where he said who the fuck. You're. Busy me was a real deal. A. Beer for this. Ridiculous. Right. They gave him a song and he said, can I do anything I want to do? In the engineer equity, you do whatever you want to do. So.

And Eddie says he walked up the kid on the shoulder they all turn around and go holy shit he goes. That's actually me guys talk. What what I think is so cool about this syphon everything else I just said is you've got to completely different genres of music totally. In there You would never. You would never see something like that I don't think any more out of the idea that like the hottest guitar player ever is playing on Michael Jackson, he's got this whole thing in the interview we talked Quincy Calls Him and he's got the like old Jackson five stuff going through his heading is like what the hell could they possibly want me to play. It's far. Where we fit into this thing, you know it was kind of disco stuff that all the. There's a there's a great video kids.

"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.

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.

"van halen" Discussed on Our Favorite Albums
"Go to retail pro demo dot com Eddie van Halen died on October six, twenty twenty at the age of sixty five without being hyperbolic and with full sincerity I can say that this is one of the greatest music losses that has ever happened in my entire life. And I say that with the full acknowledgement that Elvis died just seven months after I was born. Yes Eddie Van Halen dying is on the same level as Elvis Presley dying. Born in Amsterdam and raised in Pasadena, outside of Los, Angeles Eddie and his brother Alex were the heart and soul of rate of music that dominated the world for over a decade, and they will continue to inspire musicians as long as the Qatar is played at infinitum. Eddie's virtuosic playing style, his complete command and control of his instrument in his till death. Do US part dedication to perfecting his skills and ability on a guitar put him into the stratosphere of greatest of all time lists in the history of music. Not, just greatest guitar players of all time I mean greatest musicians of all time. Bach. Mozart. Beethoven. Chopin. Tchaikovsky. Verdi. Wagner. Van Halen. Again I'm not exaggerating or being hyperbolic. This is a momentous loss for the entire world.

"van halen" Discussed on Soundrise Podcast
"You know, that's the thing on Surface these songs may seem oh, this is a o r or hard typical commercial hard rock radio friendly, but then you hear all these small things that add is doing in the background and all these really crazy ideas and riffs that you don't hear anywhere else in Panama is a perfect example of such songs. And also again Lee Roth brilliant here as well really get you going really gets you pumped up the intro. How about that intro it just so perfect especially when it finally goes into that main page and Alex Van Halen comes into like Fix it up, you know it just just perfect. So I really don't see any flaws with that one now top. Jim is kind of silly a bit off again. What's really Redeeming the track is a displaying of course, but I always felt it was a bit silly and that's fine that kind of Suits Van Halen, but I think that the record would have been stronger if it had a different track they're drop dead legs has a brilliant code with a guitar work out. So the song is good itself. But then when it reaches the end, there's this really great Van Halen moment. And of course Hot for Teacher another him back here. I'm glad you liked that one the lyrics, you know, the thing about the lyrics what do you think about their lyrical content? I wanted to ask you about that regarding this page. Killer album. Yeah, for example this song Hot for Teacher but in general to yeah, to be honest. I didn't really pay much attention to page here. For some reason. I thought that the music was a redeeming Factor yet again, but I don't know I can't really recall the the lyrics you may have to search it off. Yeah, that's kind of a an answer that makes sense. Because to me Van Halen were never about the lyrics the lyrics are kind of whimsical sort of you know, they they suit George this kind of high school, maybe early college Vibe, but that's fine because that's what they do best and they're devoid of pretension faith in that sense. But what I really appreciated what's going on behind those lyrics the energy and the musicianship, you know, and I can't think of any other bands like this song. Only cruise maybe somewhat similar but Motley Crue to be fair as good musicians as they maybe did not really have such jobs. You know, it's very very different from Van Halen. So not the crew were kind of heavier than than Van Halen Right, maybe somewhat but you know the way I see it if that debuted no record can come out by Van Halen. They would be no Motley Crue there would be no wait this hard rock for better or worse..

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.

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.
"van halen" Discussed on What Difference Does It Make
"They could they could rock as hard as anyone else, but then they would also they also log Is pop element, you know as well, you know with dance the night away and then and then jump, you know, I mean and that was like really keyboard driven, you know, it's kind of interesting that you know, you know, Eddie Van Halen, you know, I'm getting tired of just people thinking I'm a guitar with so I'm going to make this little pop ditty here with some keyboards on it, but it's going to go to number one, you know, and it did yeah. Yeah, it's not that that was that was literally that was the album that that broke him to the masses. Then Nineteen Eighty-Four which wage, you know, they they understood MTV. I think they were one of the first bands that really understood the you know, how this medium works and you know, a lot of it was David Lee Roth, but it was it was the music as well. Even they like like jump. It's just a pop song. We're going to create this pop-song. We're going to do this video. We're all having a great time. This is kind of what a Van Halen song. Sort of like Come Aboard, you know, come join us. Come join the Van Halen train and you know have a good time. That's that's exactly what you know, they reflected that they did great covers. I mean Pretty Woman wage ever. Oh, yeah. You should look up see the video the full version of Pretty Woman, you know with with the with the Eddie Van Halen instrumental leading into pretty woman. That's that's per month as well. But it's just them dressing up and being goofy the video. Yeah. Yeah. I remember it actually will have to think any play Donna Thomas Dolby song. I think Thomas posted something yesterday. Oh, he didn't like he said he didn't play on too many tracks guests on many different artists, but he did I did have the good fortune that he played on both of mine. Yeah to certain black and close but no cigar from his 1992 album astronauts and Heretics. I don't know those songs. We're going to have to look those up and put it on the Spotify playlist. They were recording for unlawful carnal knowledge at the time. Oh, okay. Were they like in joining Studios or something? You said he he said are you reading this page invited Thomas Dolby up to his home recording studio to squeeze in a couple of days of work, right? He says they'll be says he soon realized though that every our Van Halen's day was like a scene from Spinal Tap House. That is funny. But kind of makes you wonder what it is day-to-day life was actually like but I'm also reminded of the recording for beat it he was about to put down the the song record the song and then I had to leave he said he was like he had to do some ET recording or something but he left the studio and Eddie suggested. Can we move things around a little and I think he moved like the middle 8th or wage moved the song around and changed the the solo and just the the the the arrangement of the song and when Michael came back, you know, he wasn't sure it's like well, you know when you deal with artists your name If they're going to hate it or love it and Michael is very appreciative of a like you've I'm so happy you've made this a better song now. I don't think he got I don't think any got paid for that performance. Yeah. I don't know. I think he did. I think he did as a favorite. I saw something last night was working that Pete Townsend said that he was the he was originally going to do it and could not do it and he suggested that Eddie which I didn't know. Wow good suggestion. But yeah, so that would make a difference. Yeah. I think that's in I think that's might be off on Rolling Stone by P on Rolling Stone. I mean, it's weird. It's just like it's so awful. I mean I posted on Facebook yesterday. It's just so awful that you know in the last five years or so long lost so many great musicians, you know, and just when you think about it, you know Prince Tom Petty Bowie Leonard Cohen, you know, it's just know Eddie Van Halen, you know off John Prine, you know cuz you know the list goes on and on, you know. Yeah to that point though about the tributes online for people who know who who are close to the family. I had mixed feelings about that. But a lot of these people are probably.
We love you Eddie

"Now the reason I picked this odd track. It's a later period track a Sammy Hager track. It's not even on any any of the official full length studio albums. because. What we're doing with this episode is celebrating how Eddie inspired the rock and roll world inspired people to make better art. Through his own artistry, five different ways, I picked this as a great illustration of the Brown sound and Eddie as a gear head Production values. I love this up for breakfast track. A lot of people don't think it's that great attract. You know it's typical tossed off Sammy Hager Lyric but I often I often argued that the van Halen Brown sound this thing that the the created Eddie with guitar tone. But I also always include Alex in that with his drum sound and what Ted temperament was for the band always argued that it doesn't exist on the first album and it comes to the fore on the second album van. Halen to and then they really really get inside. The guts and the and the machine of this brown sound album on women and children I and fair warning. But up into the Sammy Hager years you know on fifty, one, Fifty and Oh, you eight, one, two in these later tracks I thought they really took this production thing to the extreme. So this is this is a great thing we have to celebrate four Eddie was so important to those guitar magazines because he such a gearhead, he loved gear to the detriment of putting out enough records that you know to to fulfill all of our our loving Fan's. Thirst for Van Halen albums we didn't get that many because any is is he's a mad genius. He was a tinker he loved gear he loved production he loved pedals and and taken apart guitars and put them back together. So he had all these sponsorships and all these sponsored guitars and and And so this is another. This is another thing that we need to celebrate. He's a bit like a Ronnie Montrose in that respect right So so essentially, track three celebrates the brown sound this this great distinct production tone this child raucous thing that we got out of the combination of between Eddie and his brother Alex and working with temple men but also just you know this So it's guitar tone it's it's extreme production and you hear that on this this crushing crushing very clear but still booming a sound that they get on this this great up for breakfast track. All right. Moving on our fourth track here on history and five songs with Martin popoff celebrating the life of Eddie Van Halen. This is another way that he inspired take a listen to this..

"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 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 Iraq 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 is really 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.

Good Genesis Song, but it's a van Halen song and I'm. I'm a big fan of it It's a summer. It's a summer anthem for me. So. Feel so good went to number thirty five on the charts. Another so I think this was the last. Single that they released? The video again another nineties zoot suit. That's everybody's moving. It's a slide and everything's moving across.

Didn't have a video. Yeah didn't have a video in one thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight in the heart of MTV here right Yep, so after the first last song didn't do that well on the charts they freaked. Enduring tour flew him to. All videos at the same time. So, that's why you got like I. Think it was like a week or so of videos? That's why you get all performance videos. Yup and That organ sin.

The video modern off of that girl in that video. This is A. If you tell me you know I guess I would play. So this is love. It'd be like that's Van Halen, and then if you say well, what Van Hagar this is Van Hagar, and you could love both full them. That's how I describe my love for Van Halen. Two different bands. I love that fucking crazy rock and style David Lee, Roth, and whatever but I love this song. This is the proof that these guys. All of a sudden stopped becoming that fun just California crazy band that rocked out with their cock out. Now here, they come with some serious like this is like good Sammy made them like more credible got them out of the just like a young rockers, fans club and got them on pop radio. Way More than David did at the time, and this is the reason why this is a great great song. It's. Not, really typical van Halen Song, but it's a van Hagar Song and You know I? I'm a big fan of it I like it, it's great, Song. So, well said, thank you, so let's. Come on sunny finish I'm not done yet. Come on, finish me. Finish recently. Come on!.
