    A nice mention of Eddie in a new Sammy interview this week:

    Ingredients are the most important thing (in a spirit).

    Otherwise, that would be like saying, “I got a great song. Now let’s just get some guy to record a guitar solo for it.”

    No, you should say, “Let’s get Eddie Van Halen.”

    Now, it’s really a good song.
    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    -Kahil Gibran

    Most of these guys are multi-instrumentalists.

    All the guys in VH are probably proficient enough on multiple instruments to make their own demos.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    We know for sure that Al and Ed were. The Al classical guitar story and the Ed sax story were two eye openers from VH Rising.

    When Dave says that the brothers are incredible musos, he ain’t fucking around.
     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "But, fucking with Brook is like fucking with hot shit on and ax handle. You just don't get a grip"-track5

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    I know maybe not at the beginning of his career, but by the time ADKOT was done, Dave would bring in complete songs. It of course would be much simpler than what ended up on record, but the key, chord structure, arrangement, tempo, melody, etc. would already be there, supported by a basic drum beat, etc.

    He'd also bring in musicians to his Pasadena compound to record stuff all the time - I bet his demos sounded pretty good.

    Greg Bissonette is still a go to help sort song arrangements in the basement. Dave is a real musician but really comes at from another era totally, he is an old soul musically and spiritually. He plucks on guitar, plays piano like a jazz player, harmonica like a southern baptist and loves funk dance music. It seems to have no match for the brothers musical POV but add immigrant culture, and a work aholic perfectionist ethos they shared somehow they squeezed those opposite views into 1 common sound that is pretty special. A lot of eggs broken in that omelet but a hell of a meal.

    I think sound-wise, a lot of credit goes to Ted Templeman as well. The VH vocals (both lead and background), on the demos, are nowhere at the level they are on the records. Ted was a singer himself, was Californian, and was a great fit to take them to the next level.
