    Default List of Eddie Van Halen guest spots?

    Hey all!

    Is there a list anywhere of all the songs Eddie Van Halen played on outside of Van Halen?
    All those one off spots with other artists and things like the Starfleet stuff?

    It'd be cool to have a complete list of all of that to listen to.

    Eddie has never played outside of Van Halen, members of VH are not allowed to be in two bands. Anything you think you've heard was an illusion.

    Do all the times he had to video the bass parts count as guest spots?

    ...pulled this off of the EVH Wiki page...

    (Note: There is NO mention of the Letterman appearance, the BTTF "noodling", nor the Smithsonian gig earlier this Spring. I'm not sure that EVH played on Sam's "Over the Top". Also, I don't know what the Templeman/Landee "collaboration" that is mentioned in '78. Otherwise, I've heard of everything else listed below from multiple sources.)




    Eddie Van Halen has appeared on several projects outside of his eponymous band.

    1978:
    Van Halen appeared on a Ted Templeman-Donn Landee collaboration
    Featured on Nicolette Larson's debut album; track: "Can't Get Away From You"

    1982:
    Invited by Quincy Jones to play guitar on Michael Jackson's "Beat It" on the album Thriller; Steve Lukather of Toto played the main guitar riff and rhythm, while Van Halen played an improvised solo

    1983:
    Collaborated with Queen guitarist Brian May on the Star Fleet Project, a three-track EP consisting of a rock-styled rendition of the theme to the popular anime children's show, a May-penned track (Let Me Out), and an improvised blues track (Blues Breaker)

    1984:
    Recorded several instrumentals for the movie The Wild Life; however, only Donut City was included on the soundtrack album
    Van Halen provided the score for the 1984 television film, The Seduction of Gina

    1987:
    Van Halen played bass on Sammy Hagar's 1987 solo album I Never Said Goodbye
    On February 28, he appeared on Saturday Night Live as a guest musician with G. E. Smith and the Saturday Night Live Band when Valerie Bertinelli hosted the show; also appeared in one sketch with Bertinelli

    1989: Played bass on the opening track Twist the Knife from Steve Lukather's debut album, as well as providing the guitar part, which was taken from an outtake from the 5150 album titled I Want Some Action

    1992:
    After asking Thomas Dolby for his help with his studio equipment, Eddie agreed to play on two of his songs, "Eastern Bloc" and "Close but no Cigar" on Dolby's album Astronauts & Heretics

    1994:
    Co-wrote the riff of a song with Black Sabbath members, Tony Martin, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler, called "Evil Eye" on the Cross Purposes album, but he was not credited due to record company restrictions[citation needed]

    1996:
    Played guitar and bass on Rich Wyman's album Fatherless Child; the songs were recorded between February 1993 and early 1994; he also was co-producer along with Rich Wyman and Andy Johns[55]

    Has done soundtrack work for movies such as Over The Top ("Winner Takes It All", a collaboration with Sammy Hagar), Twister (the instrumental "Respect The Wind"), and Lethal Weapon 4 (the track "Fire in the Hole" from Van Halen III)

    1998:
    Performed guitar solos for the Roger Waters song "Lost Boys Calling" from the film The Legend of 1900

    2006:
    Recorded two new instrumental tracks ("Rise" and "Catherine"), which debuted in an unusual format: in a pornographic feature entitled Sacred Sin directed by a friend of the guitarist, well known adult director Michael Ninn[56][57]

    2009:
    Played a cameo role in the season seven premiere of the sitcom Two and a Half Men, where he plays the main riff from "As Is" from A Different Kind of Truth[58]

    2013:
    Appeared on two tracks of LL Cool J's album Authentic: "Not Leaving You Tonight" and "We're The Greatest"

    I always liked those two live songs he performed on, with Scandal - Maybe We Went Too Far, and River Deep/Mountain High.

    When I hear Ed without Al its stlll great but not the same sound. Beat It is number one on that list......
    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.

    Eddie's face looks bloated like a chubby Yngwie Malmsteen in that picture.
