Text Quotes
I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often  (Van Halen Quotes) People say that life is a cesspool of darkness and dispair. Well we of Van Halen are sailing through it in a yacht!  (Van Halen Quotes) When I left Van Halen, I went in the studio and made a CD called Marching to Mars with all studio musicians. I did it immediately. With the disappointment riding on my shoulders of the breakup of the band  (Van Halen Quotes) When we were on the road, I found out that my greatest hits album went Gold. They freaked out. Things really came to a head when we started arguing about a Van Halen greatest hits package  (Van Halen Quotes) David Lee Roth had the idea that if you covered a successful song, you were half way home. C’mon - Van Halen doing ‘Dancing in the Streets’? It was stupid. I started feeling like I would rather bomb playing my own songs than be successful playing someone else’s music  (Van Halen Quotes) I wouldn’t mind meeting Eddie Van Halen. That would be great. We need to invite him to a race  (Van Halen Quotes) My heroes were Eddie Van Halen - especially after Van Halen I, II, III, and IV - Randy Rhoads, Ace Frehley and dudes like that. My brother played drums and we jammed in the garage and started writing our own stuff  (Van Halen Quotes) On ‘Van Halen,’ I was a young punk, and everything revolved around the fastest kid in town, gunslinger attitude. But I’d say that at the time of ‘Fair Warning,’ I started concentrating more on songwriting. But I guess in most people’s minds I’m just a gunslinger  (Van Halen Quotes) The human mind is like Van Halen. If you just pull out one piece and keep replacing it, it just degenerates  (Van Halen Quotes) I look at Van Halen as social workers. What we’re really doing is creating jobs for rock critics  (Van Halen Quotes) In Van Halen there were moments, like in some of the ballads, I put my heart and soul into those records. Those lyrics when I sang ‘em, I gave myself goosebumps  (Van Halen Quotes) Sometimes I’ll listen to a little old Van Halen, or some Beatles, Zeppelin stuff, classical music... I like a lot of different things  (Van Halen Quotes) It comes back to the same old question people are always asking me: ‘When are you going to do a solo record?’ Well, if I did, it would probably be similar to ‘Baluchitherium,’ meaning it would be Van Halen music - which I write anyway - but without singing  (Van Halen Quotes) I love players like Thurston Moore. I mean, you can put notes down on a sheet of paper, and if you practice and get your chops up, you can play like an Eddie Van Halen or a Steve Vai. But nobody can do what Thurston Moore does; he’s his own guy. He talks through his instrument in a language that’s all his own  (Van Halen Quotes) What draws people to the instrument is the love for guitar players that play a certain way. I mean, even though it wasn’t intentional, it was hard to avoid copying Eddie Van Halen. He was basically the *bleep* back then  (Van Halen Quotes) The Alanis Morissette tour, everybody thinks that was all sitting around, lighting candles and talking intelligently about synergy and big words. That band was so gnarly. We were such scumbags. Alanis had no idea. We were like Van Halen  (Van Halen Quotes) It’s the most natural progression for me to becoming a singing sensation next. And so many people have offered to be on it. Eddie Van Halen... and Prince, Madonna and Cyndi Lauper will probably be a backup trio  (Van Halen Quotes) Ted Templeman, the producer, and Donn Landee, the engineer, are the same team that signed Van Halen, when they were called Mammoth. Donn convinced them to change it to the last name of the guitar player and drummer  (Van Halen Quotes) I had a solo career before Van Halen. My fan base filtered through Van Halen with me and came right on out the other side with me  (Van Halen Quotes) Dave was great in Van Halen. No question about it. He was one of the best at being Mr. Rock Star. But it’s sickening to see a guy still trying to be that with a wig on 20 years later  (Van Halen Quotes) I can't stop lovin' you  (Van Halen Quotes) I’ve heard my share of Van Halen. I never liked rock  (Van Halen Quotes) The name Van Halen, the family legacy, is going to go on long after I’m gone  (Van Halen Quotes) It was fun while it lasted, but it never seemed real to me. I could not believe I was in Van Halen  (Van Halen Quotes) I liked a lot of the things other people liked - Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Van Halen, AC/DC - but if I compared it to my dad’s music, there just seemed to be elements missing  (Van Halen Quotes) Dave thought he was bigger than Van Halen the band. So there was this catfight going on for 10 years  (Van Halen Quotes) I did some research and tried to pull out some old, classic Van Halen that they had not played in 10 or 15 years. I think that was Sammy’s mistake. I he didn’t want to do the Dave stuff  (Van Halen Quotes) If I had had a chance to tour with Van Halen before the record, I think it would have been a different record  (Van Halen Quotes) Spitfire asked me if I had a problem talking about Van Halen or Extreme. I really don’t. There are people who are just going to want to know what it was like to play with Eddie  (Van Halen Quotes) When I was in Van Halen I was hitting notes that were out of my range. I never went for those registers before until Eddie pulled it out of me  (Van Halen Quotes)
