The all-Van Halen podcast “Dave & Dave Unchained” has released episode #2.
After a successful debut, the “Dave & Dave Unchained” podcast has returned for more mammoth madness on episode 2. This time around the duo focuses on the underappreciation of VH’s 2012 studio album, “A Different Kind of Truth.” As the Daves breakdown the album song-by-song, they analyze the marketing and press for the release as well as the controversial use of old material.
Additionally, there’s an in-depth discussion on the current state of the band and the rumors swirling around.
There’s also an exclusive interview with guitarist Joe Satriani who gives an update on Chickenfoot and its future plans.
Their discussion about “A Different Kind of Truth” is especially good, and starts at 28:11 into the episode.

About the “Dave & Dave Unchained” Podcast: Van Halen fans, it has finally arrived – a podcast exclusively about The Mighty Van Halen. “Dave & Dave Unchained” focuses on everything in the world of VH, plus the solo careers of its members. This monthly show covers every era of the band through album discussions, exclusive interview segments and more.
The show is hosted by two friends named Dave – David J. Criblez, a music journalist for over 30 years, has interviewed every member of VH with the exception of Wolfgang and has contributed to ‘The Inside‘ Van Halen magazine and Van Halen News Desk; David A. Marcone is his college roommate who shares the same passion for the band. Together they have seen multiple Van Halen, Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth shows around the country for over 20 years including hanging with the band backstage and with Roth in clubs and even on his tour bus.
“There’s never been a band that has such a unique and intriguing history as Van Halen,” says co-host David J. Criblez. “Our goal is to explore all the twists and turns they’ve taken over the past 40 plus years.”
Co-host Dave Marcone adds, “Not only do they have great music to talk about, but let’s face it, there’s no shortage of drama with this band!”
