    Default Drummer BRIAN TICHY Comments On EDDIE VAN HALEN Jam - Nov. 23, 2006

    From Blabbermouth:

    Drummer Brian Tichy (BILLY IDOL, SLASH'S SNAKEPIT, GILBY CLARKE, PRIDE & GLORY) performed with Eddie Van Halen in late September for the launch of a porn movie called "Sacred Sin", for which Eddie recorded two songs. Dubbed "The Gathering", the private, invitation-only bash took place on September 30 at "the 5150 Estate in Los Angeles," which is Van Halen's home.

    Commented Brian: "Someone who knows someone who knows someone suggest[ed] that we should be the house band at a party Eddie Van Halen is having in his backyard at the end of September. Of course we [were] psyched. This included Eddie wanting to rehearse with us the day before the party in his backyard. We rehearsed, then the next day played the party.

    "The whole damn thing is still totally surreal to me. Eddie was without a doubt one of my top three influences and inspirations growing and practicing drums and guitar. I saw the 'Diver Down' tour, learned all the drum licks on every David Lee Roth-era record, and VH was one of my favorite bands growing up. I wasn't just into VAN HALEN, I looked for stuff to learn from them. So there ya have it. I played with one of my all time idols. I received more than enough kind words from him and he was beyond nice and treated us all with total respect. Chalk this up as one my career highlights... Playing Neil Peart's drums at Madison Square Garden, touring with OZZY OSBOURNE and this. Go to www.youtube.com, type in Eddie Van Halen and you can see some little bootleg clips of this.

    "By the way, we all know how great Eddie is and there is no doubt about how much ground he's broke on guitar. But what is not talked about that much that I got to feel first hand, was his GROOVE. His natural internal feel is so heavy, slinky and fat. It is rare to play with someone that locks up with so little effort yet is so 'there.' Eddie has it all together and always has... It was beyond an honor to get that kind opportunity."

    All the Eddie haters/complainers probably don't believe any of that. "There's no way that was Eddie. He's an asshole". "That simply cannot be". "He's not a nice guy". "unless Mikey was there to confirm, it's not true."

    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    It's nice to hear somebody mention Eddie in a positive light, for a change.

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and Iīve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    Ed has great rhythm, who knew?
    Guess all those years of living with and being a drummer paid off.
    In all seriousness, that is what makes Ed, Ed, and that kinetic
    energy and interplay are some of the ideals I've always aspired
    to on my own. I think with the VHs, it comes from a jazz-kinda
    upbringing, as it's a very jazzy idea to intentionally fuck with
    the rhythm and impose personality on your phrases the way
    they do.

    It's great to read that, what is your opinion on this pumpkinhead? Are you upset that mikey's brand of hot sauce was not used at all on the barbecue?

    Ed doesn't like hot sauce.

    The only "sauce" Ed is interested in is the following:

    You are 100% correct!
