The new issue of Guitar World magazine has a cover story featuring Edward & Wolfgang Van Halen. In Eddie’s interview Edward seems happier than he’s ever been in his life and he speaks of a very bright future for Van Halen.
“We truly are a band; it’s not just a one-off thing. I don’t want to say it’s a rebuilding process. If anything its continuation. It feels more like a band and a family then it ever has, and not just because three quarters of it is family. Working with Dave has been very productive. Were all very opinionated about things, but it’s all for the benefit of the music. Were working together better than ever. I can see. I see us doing this for a long, long time. When things feel right, why the hell not keep doing it?
“I can’t think of anyone on the planet who is more lucky and blessed. Not only do I get to play with my brother but I also get to play with my son. If my dad was still here now that would really make things amazing. I have a wonderful wife, wonderful friends, and a son who doesn’t smoke, drink or do drugs. I’m just a guitarist in a kick ass rock and roll band. What more could I ask for?”
