    He is pretty straigth forward and honest.

    He does admit being very uncumfortable being in VH. No surprise there.

    From what I get from the interview I think Gary left VH because of pressure from execs telling Eddie what kind of songs to write. He himself says many times that "Van Halen should stick to being the monster rock and roll band they are".

    I like how he says the Van Hagar succeeded in creating "Aerosmith type pop".

    I also like how he makes fun of a fat chick right at the end of the interview.

    But the best parts is when he says that VH3 was badly produced, and when he says he never listened to the record much. That says it all, folks.

    Guess I'll never be able to hear it, since it's only on that Real fucking Audio crap.

    Is there no version of the interview on Windows Media Player?! [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]
    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR

    Sounds to me Gary is happy to be relieved of the pressures of being in VH. Can't say I blame him.
