    Default Recent Edward Interview

    Pulled this from the Army... not sure on the actual source but it appears legit. For what it's worth it opens some more questions. Also appears Sam's son was recently quoted as saying "don't ask dad anything about that band, he'll never speak to you again"... when asked about Sam working w/ VH again on a new album.


    rf: Thank you Edward for agreeing to this phone interview. We promise not to keep you to long.

    EVH: Not a problem to talk to some real fans for a change, you know, that have given me the support from the start. You've treated me well, so I'll treat you well.

    rf: We're just glad to have a relationship with simply the greatest guitar player of all time. Now onto the questions, and we're going to focus on what's to come, if that's alright.

    EVH: (chuckling) don't they all.......

    rf: What does the next year hold for the band Van Halen?

    EVH: We have new songs completed in theory. Just some things I've been working on since 2000. We have some time scheduled to record them, and we are going to do things a little different this time. We have some recording time set up in Canada, just to break up the monotony of it all, and to keep away from the photo hounds. This next album is going to be a return of sorts, and we just decided as a band not to stick around here and listen to all the bullshit. For once, we're going to let the album take care of itself. We just had to put the past behind us, and move on, and I realize that a lot of our future is tied up with the past. Our goal as a band has always been to put out the best music for the fans, but it has to be fun for us. Sometimes you need to step away to realize what that is.

    rf: Forgive me for asking this Edward, but who is the "we" in Van Halen?

    EVH: I'm the one working on the songs, and have booked the venue to record them. But the songs I've been working on aren't necesarily of the traditional variety for me over the past 10 years or so. Most of what I do is throw down some stuff, sometimes in the studio, sometimes on the toilet (laughs) but this time, I grabbed some stuff from the past five years or so that I already had some vocal tracks for. You know...just to fuck around. I thought, "Damn, there's something there." And a couple of hours later I came out with a couple of songs that had that vintage feel, but were so damn new that a previous hazy feel kinda cleared itself out. Sometimes it's about the music, sometimes it's about feeling good, and sometimes it's about just doing the right fucking thing. In this case, it was two of the three, and I think, the right two. Life is a learning process, and I've done a lot of fucking learning the past 10 years.

    rf: Since you didn't answer the original question, are you saying you aren't willing to say who's in the band at this stage?

    EVH: That's why we're heading to Canada for a bit. I'm sick of answering that question. Van Halen is what it is, a great band. Like I said, I'll let the album speak for itself.

    rf: So the album is going to be worked on this year?

    EVH: The timetable has it being completed by the end of the year, with a release early next year. If they have a date specifically for it, I'm not sure when it is.

    rf: Or won't tell us?

    EVH: Something like that.

    rf: Just to go back for a moment, what was touring like last year with Sam?

    EVH: The tour was outstanding for me personally. I hadn't been on the road in five years, so I was able to get out a lot of pent up agression (chuckling)...and a lot of people on the buses were like, "What the fuck?" The good thing was that there was enough separation that I didn't have to listen to the bullshit. I'd just throw on the headphones, or grab the cell and talk to the kid, or the girl, and let the rest go. The music was about the fans. The tour was about the fans and the band. Anything else was about me. I shut out the shit.

    rf: So you all got along?

    EVH: We've all learned that it's like a marriage (lauging), some things are good, some things aren't. You talk to much, and you end up living in the studio............

    (at this point, after only a couple of minutes, EVH said that was it for the interview for now)

    rf: Any parting shots for your fans?

    EVH: The more things fucking change, the more they stay the same.

    rf: Thank you Edward for taking the time for our rag.

    EVH: We'll do it again...

    I'm sick of answering that question.
    When was that answered?
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    I read that too.

    However I don't think its legit because of two things.

    One is that I have only seen Eddie in text three times over the past year or so.

    One was Guitar World, the second was from a Dutch magazine and the other was when he criticized a review of the Cleveland show and called the reviewer back up. That guy put a transcript of what Eddie said.

    The other reason why I don't think its legit is that I just reread a book I have that has about 15 years of interviews by EVH to various guitar mags. Whomever answered this does not "sound" like Eddie in an interview.

    However I don't know who "RF" so maybe it is real but at this moment I say its BS.

    Considering where it was pulled from...and with no source. The only thing that sounds like Ed is nothing was answered.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    The more things fucking change, the more they stay the same. LOL.

    So, in other words, if it's really Ed talkin', maybe he's just gonna release a massively overdubbed essentially solo album with pre-recorded vocals from (insert lead singer here).

    Goddamn, you gotta love this band - its left hand never knows what its right hand is doing, but you can bet both sets of fingers are jerking us off.

    The Army is pure fiction, they live on another planet of their own, and it`s not reality. I wouldn`t put much stock in this if it was from there. Having said that anything that comes from a band member lately is nothing short of a roller coaster ride.

    Default Photo hounds?

    Going to Canada to keep away from the photo hounds?

    Last I checked, every album since 1984 had been recorded at 5150. And Ed's studio is on his private property, and is very secluded. There's almost zero chance of any "photo hounds" being able to keep tabs on who's hanging out at 5150.

    I smell bullshit........

    This does not sound like Eddie. And with the exception of the talk about the tour...I think I have heard this all before. I remember someone talking about them doing some stuff in Canada. If it is him he doesn't come off as piss drunk...maybe thats a positive.

    If it's from the DLR Army, it doesn't mean it's true. That is a fan site. Off to the Rumour Mill for now at least.
