    Default Jimmy Iovine on Van Halen

    Little excerpt from bigger Jimmy Iovine interview. Not much about Van Halen but what I thought interesting was he says he wasn't that familiar with Van Halen.

    THR: Interscope signed Van Halen and Madonna this year, can you give us some insight as to why?

    Iovine: They're great artists. And they made really good albums, both of them. I heard both records before we made the deal and I was really honored that they wanted to be on Interscope -- stunned, to be honest, I didn't know either of them well. I know Eddie [Van Halen] and Madonna a little bit,. Guy Oseary (Madonna’s manager) is an incredible guy and one of the coolest people I’ve ever met in the business. The opportunity was there and the people at Live Nation were really supportive. Nowadays, everybody goes label shopping, and these people were, like, “I want to work with Interscope.” So I said, “yes, great!”

    interesting
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

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

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

    He didn't say he wasn't familiar with them, he said he didn't know them well, only knowing Eddie a little. I think he means in a personal sense...

    They've done an excellent job on promoting the album.
