    Default Van Halen Interview in Japan 2013

    Yes you read that correctly. Dave. Eddie. Alex.

    Yeah, it was definitely posted here at the time. But good to see them together recently for those that haven't.

    I still love that moment when Eddie is talking about how little of what they do is calculated to sound like what they've done before. There's a beat, and then Roth says, "Well, I'm a one-trick-pony!" And they all laugh, and Eddie adds,"...But what a trick!"

    Whenever anybody says that these guys are secretly on awful terms with each other, I think of that. They may fight, but when push comes to shove, they think of each other like family-- even Dave.
    "There will always be a Holyfield or a Tyson, but there's only one Mohammad Ali. There will always be a new body building champion, but there's only one Arnold. And there's only one David Lee. I'm the fun in Van Halen, always will be." - David Lee Roth

    I missed this as well, so thanks again for reposting.

    If someone had the wherewithal to edit this thing down to just the interviews, that would be unbelievably awesome.

    Also, I would kill a man to get the raw unedited tape of that interview with Dave, Al, and Ed.

    Thanks for posting this, I think I saw part of it before but I hadn't seen the whole thing.

    Did anyone catch who the guy in the dark v-neck t-shirt is (not Ted Templeman, the other guy who talks a lot)? Thanks
    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.

    yeah all together it's a nice 45minute retrospective piece. Stuff we all like to see from VH but they rarely ever do. Too bad the questions are in Japanese ;-) plus needs to be cut down like you said!

    Think it's the MTV VJ from those days, Alan Hunter ...
    saw he posted a link to the interviews on his FB page when they came out.

    yeah... I thought a consolidating edit of the recent group interview would be nice to have as well.


    Strange observations:

    Dave looks very thin in this interview...
    Ed looks quite strange in this interview... (but thankfully quite coherent)

    And Alex? Exactly the same as always.



    Cheers for sharing everyone.

    100% agree with you .
    It was nice to see these (I've seen 'em before) , yet I wish the Japanese stuff was taken out . Sorry to the overseas fans . I guess I can be a bit selfish ... Haha

    I think Ed looks weird because he's getting to that point where his face doesn't match his hair. He needs to leave a little gray around the temples or something. His face is fuller now, and so you we see a little droop and some wrinkles, and then his hair is perfectly dyed.

    Good point.

    I think Eddy looks pretty good recently... just thought he looked strange in this particultar bit.

    Hate to say it but the first thing I thought of was....




    haha...

    Sorry Ed! Loved your "what a trick" comment"
