Looks like Van Halen fans may finally get to discover what’s inside the legendary 5150 Vaults.
The curiosity as to how much unheard material actually exists in Eddie Van Halen’s personal collection has grown to mythical proportions. Since the tragic news of Eddie’s passing, the band’s manager of over 15 years Irving Azoff has offered up some hopeful news in an otherwise dark period in Van Halen history. He told Pollstar that Wolfgang and Alex Van Halen will begin searching through the 5150 Vaults for material worthy of future releases.
“Wolf and Alex will go up to 5150, the studio in Ed’s house, but there’s been a lot of recording over the years,” Azoff says. “I can’t predict that for sure there will be anything new, but for sure they’re going to look at it.”
Azoff also commented on the passing of Eddie calling him an “unqualified genius” and a “loving, gentle soul.”
