Esquire interview

7 Apr, 2012

Van Halen discusses his music standing the test of time:

Yeah, it does hold up, but that was kind of purposefully done. Before we decided to actually make a full record, we said, Hey, let’s do some old demos. And we actually recorded three of them already. And I engineered She’s the Woman, Out of Space, and Bullethead, and it ended up turning into a whole record. But we figured: Why not give fans the era that they liked, you know? But not the whole album is that. It’s just like a third old, a third middle, and a third new.
