    Default Alex Van Halen- The Lost Interview- Steve Rosen

    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

    I have made it through the halfway point of the second video and this is beyond cool. So much I have never heard about before. I can't imagine that Alex would be all that happy about this though as it is kind of a spoiler to his book. Of course nothing will stop me from getting his book but it seems odd to release this now right after Alex announced his book drop. It's like when people get interviewed about a book they have coming out and when asked certain questions, they say that you will just have to buy the book. Nonetheless this is very cool to hear and I am hearing stuff that I never knew before.

    WOW

    Alex is absolutely skewering Roth throughout all these interviews.... Especially the third part.

    Hatred and incompatibility between these guys I think is the real story overall. It's so extreme and not normal.

    This is probably one the most important interviews ever conducted with any of these guys. Alex is definitely the most articulate of all of them and really paints a picture.

    His book should be very entertaining.

    Amazing that even back then it you weren't in the band you got dissed. This band was terrible, that guy sounded awful, that guy was ugly. Always on the defensive.

    That's not accurate. He says plenty of nice things about former members. He even gives Dave his credit for his strengths. He's honest. He says what he likes. And, he says what he doesn't like. He's just like the rest of us. Think about people you used to know or work with..."Oh, yeah! That fuck-wit". We ALL do it. Honesty may be harsh. But, it's honest. Anything else is a waste of time and energy. It would also be a lie.

    People have to remember the point in time that this interview was conducted. It was September of 1985 and the love-fest with Sammy was in its most early stages. I'm sure those guys were quite upset to have a year like 1984 and then have it all vanish in an instant. Steven actually has an interview he released a while back from when he talked to Mike on the 5150 tour. It's a normal interview like most slated for a guitar/bass mag but towards the end, Mike gets pretty worked up about Dave and says some pretty revealing things that sound quite harsh. Mike likely took the worst of things when it came to his place in the band so you can feel his pent up frustration in the end of the interview. I mean Mike seems like the most easy going guy ever so to get him this worked up must have really brought back some emotions and feelings.

    I wish Alex had talked a little bit about his gear in this interview during the early years. I'm curious to know exactly what he was using between the time he took over Eddies drum set to the time when he purchased the famous silver sparkle set. I would also love to know when that was as that set must have cost a small fortune and Alex always talks about how broke they were.

    Well, this interview was September of '85, correct? I'm sure none of them had anything nice to say about Roth at that time.

    I admit I haven't listened yet--looking forward to it. Thanks for posting, James!
