    "Al's first car was a Camaro, mine was a Mustang. We both drove better in each other's cars so we switched."
    'Old Van Halen, when I was in it-classic Van Halen-makes you wanna drink, dance and screw, right? And the new Van Halen encourages you to drink milk, drive a Nissan and have a relationship.' - David Lee Roth.

    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    they used the same pic as the Rolling Stone article
    "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 Iīve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

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

    The C&D EVH Interview that the old Eddie would probably give. (Based on his guitar mag interviews)



    Interviewer: "So when you finally settled into driving the Camaro, when did you start making you own modifications to it, and what were they?"

    Ed: "Around 1982...Well, the first thing I did was pull the engine. It had a shitty 305 in it. Al would turn to me and say "That thing sounds like hell! It's so weak and thin!" So I pulled the engine, and got myself a 350, and rewound the ignition coil. Only problem was when it came time to put it in, I couldn't remember how to fuckin' do it! So I just cut the engine bay bigger, and bolted the engine directly to the subframe. I took a look at the transmission, and said "fuck it! I only really use the gas pedal anyway", so I welded the driveshaft directly to the flywheel on the engine. It's almost uncontrollable, but it worked for me. I'd never seen anyone do that before. The shifter's still there, but it's just to fill the hole...It's not connected to anything...It just kinda wobbles."

    Interviewer: "That's amazing. Did you do anything else to make the car your own?"

    Ed: "When I got the car, it came with a real cheap gas pedal, so thought "If I cut this in half, I could use both feet on the gas...Kind of like two gas pedals. I never liked the idea of a brake pedal, or stop signs anyway, so I took a hacksaw, and cut the sucker! It was great! Honestly, it really shocked some people.....This little Dutch kid creating such a ruckus."

    Interviewer: "So where did the Red, White, and black stripe idea come from?"

    Ed: Well, with no transmission or brakes, it became obvious pretty quick that I'd need to at least be seen. There was no way I could possibly stop, so the crazy stripes and stuff at least gave me a shot that someone would see me coming and not hit me. I don't want to come off like an asshole, but the way I see it if all these other guys were still doing the same thing...Y'know....playin' it safe with brakes, tranny's and all that other garbage, then they can just keep using them. I wanted to drive 150MPH! It was fun!"

    Interviewer: "Outstanding!"
