Rolling Stone Podcast Tribute to Eddie Van Halen
Ever wondered what Eddie Van Halen was like in his younger days? Well you don't have to wonder much longer..
The new episode of Rolling Stone Music Now pays tribute to the late Eddie Van Halen, with an interview from 2008 that hasn't been heard before. The interview with the guitarist traces his early years as a musician and beyond, giving more background insight into Van Halen.
Why did the electric guitar last so long as rock's defining instrument? "you can't bend the strings of a piano" Van Halen says in the interview.
The new episode also includes a discussion between the host Brian HIatt and Van Halen scholar Greg Renoff (also the author of the revelatory book "Van Halen Rising", on the group's origins, as well as co=author of linetime producer Ted Templeman's autobiography).
The podcast also plays clips of Gene Simmons, Steve Vai, and Tom Morello's recent thoughts on Van Halen's passing, courtesy of Rolling Stone's David Brown and Patrick Doyle.
