    Default Eddie Van Halen: "My First Interview" (Complete, HD Audio) Jas Obrecht



    Here is the complete recording of what Eddie Van Halen would later call "my first interview."

    We did it at the side of a basketball court set up backstage at the Day on the Green Concert at the Oakland Coliseum on June 23, 1978.
    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

    That tour date doesn't match the 1978 tour dates... It's JULY 23, 1978!

    Oh!

    I just copied what Jas wrote under the video.

    Jas has 3 letters and James has 5...

    The only two letters he's missing are 'm e'...

    Sorry! My mistake. This interview with Eddie took place in July, rather than June, 1978. I've fixed the error on the YouTube write-up. I appreciate the heads-up.
