It’s 5150 time! Premiered exclusively on the Van Halen News Desk, watch this brand new video by guitarist Jacob Deraps and drummer Josh Gallagher, where they rip through Van Halen’s “5150”! From the original Tama Rosewood Snare, to the Germino 1968 Plexi Replica, as well as the performance and energy, they have it all to make it a very enjoyable quality cover to watch and listen to that we guarantee will satisfy !
Jacob tells VHND, “This is my first cover of the Sammy Hagar years and one of my favorite songs of that era. I hope it will reach out to the fans of that era and that they will enjoy it as much as me and Josh enjoy making these videos. It is a lot of dedication to realize a video like this, learning, recording, production, video editing, getting the right tones, effects, etc… Josh even found a way to get the snare buzz in the part after the solo and we are from the opposite sides of the planet! We are crazy but we want to make the best we can for us and the fans, and at end, it’s worth it!”
Both Jacob and Josh will be doing the EVH Gear Discussion show, live this Friday October 7th, at 9PM EST. time!
