    Is it true Halen played Sabbath covers in their early days? Would there be any recordings around of those?

    The VHE says they played War Pigs in their early days, though I don't think any tape exists to prove that.

    Ed wanted to call the band Rat Salad when they dropped the name Mammoth; Rat Salad being a Sabbath song.

    If you listen to a version of summertime blues from the Roth era you'll hear a jam at then end which is based on the solo from 'Symptom of the Universe'

    That was awesome when they busted into System on the last tour.
    I remember reading that they used to play War Pigs back in their garage days and Eddie would sing.
    In a guitar world interview last year, EVH listed Sabbath's "Into the Void" as one of his all time favorite songs.
    I also remember reading in an interview around the time Balance came out (either Rolling Stone or guitar world) where Eddie was asked if Van Halen would ever do MTV Unplugged. He replied that VH song's were not meant to be played on acoustic guitar, stating that if you were to play something as heavy as Sabbath's "System of the Universe"-Unplugged it would totally fuck up the original meaning or importance of the song.
