VHND’s All Access Photo: Roth Basement

VHND all Access Photo: Roth Basement

“Roth Basement c.1979 — Fast and thin was the pick to win …”

-David Lee Roth

This week’s All Access Photo comes from a former Van Halen roadie and is something no one has seen. Eddie and Alex Van Halen in an impromptu moment in David Lee Roth’s father’s basement shortly before the release of Van Halen II. Roth’s basement was pretty much Van Halen Headquarters during the seventies, despite the fact that there are no photos of it that have been seen…until now. This is where the young and hungry band spent countless hours writing and rehearsing. A real “insider” treat for fans!

“All Access” Van Halen photos is a new weekly feature at VHND.com. Every weekend we will be posting a photo from a roadie, friend, or band insider. Many will be exclusives that have never been seen anywhere before, and some will be supplied with new captions from David Lee Roth, like the one above. Tune in every weekend for more!
