    Default New Eddie interview: "I'm ready to have fun, I'm ready to play"

    New Eddie Van Halen interview, some snippets up at VHND.

    “I’m not affected by whether it’s cool or not. I never have been. Van Halen first came out in the disco era. We always do our music regardless of anything else. We’re out to have fun, not be the flavor of the month. Playing guitar is what I do; and I feel exactly the same as I did on the first album. I feel like I haven’t changed at all. I’m ready to have fun. I’m ready to play.”

    The real question is not whether he's ready to play, but rather is he ready to record?
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I think so. We'll find out soon.

    From last year:

    Q: Will there ever be another Van Halen studio album?

    A: After this touring cycle, we will probably hunker down and do a studio record. We certainly have enough material. It is a matter of timing and getting everybody together. That's the only way it can be done.

    And in that same interview Ed said they wanted to do a studio album last year but didn't have the time (Wolf solo project, Dave getting tattoos in Japan). So it's a matter of when Wolf is done with his thing, and Dave formally commits his time to Ed. Dave wants to record a new album in two days, Ed wants to spend months on it. I honestly think that's the disconnect where Ed always says Dave doesn't have the time to do one, and Dave always says Ed doesn't want to do one.

    I don't pay too much attention to what Ed says unfortunately.

    Until the album is up on iTunes or the tickets on sale online, I have developed a fatalistic wait and see with VH.

    Nothing to see here.

    Typical Ed interview where he says something and nothing at the same time.

    Nothing new, I'll just say that Ed has been saying he's ready, so I hope someday he puts his money where his mouth is.
    I think he's just trying to dismiss that people think he's the holdup to new music, but the reality is, he hasn't done anything new in a decade, where Dave has including writing new lyrics for ADKOT. Ed you are the hold up, if you want it done, do it, otherwise stop talking about doing it

    I'm 100% in the "believe it when I see it" camp, and yet I honestly feel that something is coming/in the works/being planned/etc.

    The "what?" and "with whom?" are the only things I feel, remain to be seen.

    The only one stopping Ed is Ed.

    If he wants it to happen and calls either Dave or Sam and says "come on up to 5150, let's jam, write and record some tunes" they would be there in a hot minute.

    Eddie said in GW that they had 35 demos done from the ADKoT sessions.
    "We could play them all.." or something similar, was his remark.

    No doubt they have a bunch of stuff to draw from. To use what Ed said Dave's reaction was at the beginning stages of making that album - "Let's get going!"
