    Guitar, January 1997:

    On language - "We did CGTSNM. Lyrically if you listen to it, he never says what you can't get and why you can't get it"

    On geography - "You don't know how much money was thrown at us to do a reunion tour with Roth;probably more than the GNP of East and West Germany put together"

    On musical direction - "Then Gary sang over it and sent it back. I called Ray and I said 'This is really bad. I don't know man'. Ray said 'Well look I've already promised him a listen' "

    " When people started calling me a guitar god, I didn't know what they meant. In England they said, "your magic." I said, If it was magic I wouldn't have to practice. I just sit and play, because you do play music, you don't work it. But it takes alot of work to play."

    "As long as my brain and fingers work, I'm cool."

    And of course, there's always my tagline.

    Here's a few more, from his April '96 Guitar World interview ...

    *On the fact that unike most hard rock bands, VH has never shied away from writing pop music:

    "Again, I just go with whatever comes out. I can't help the fact that I've written "Can't Stop Loving You" or "Jump". Don't blame me. (laughs) Actually, if I could deliberately sit down and write a pop hit, all my songs would be pop hits! Let's put it this way. I play what I like to hear. And sometimes I like to hear something poppy, and sometimes I don't."

    *On the making of Van Halen II:

    "It was very hurried. We had just toured for a year, and we only had two weeks to write and record. But I'll never forget the questions we got after the second record was released: "Why does this record sound different from the first album?" Because it's not the first album! It's always a Catch-22 situation. They hate you if you're the same, and they hate you if you're different."

    *So how did you get from playing your first open G chord to playing "Eruption"?

    "Practice. I used to sit on the edge of my bed with a six-pack of Schlitz Malt talls. My brother would go out at 7pm to party and get laid, and when he'd come back at 3am, I would still be sitting in the same place, playing guitar. I did that for years-I still do that."
