Van Halen News Desk has posted an interview from The Most Interesting Person Project’s Stuart Holt who recently conducted an interview with music producer Ted Templeman, who produced VAN HALEN’s first five albums at Sunset Sound Studio in Los Angeles, CA and later their album, Unlawful Carnal Knowledge.
Watch the interview at this location.
As previously reported, EXTREME guitarist Nuno Bettencourt, who, for Van Halen News Desk, recounts a meeting with Van Halen, his childhood guitar hero, in a recording studio back in January. Unlike Mark Tremonti from ALTER BRIDGE, or Morgan Rose from SEVENDUST, it seems Nuno wasn’t played any music from the new album in person, instead only hearing Eddie’s distinctive work through the thick studio walls:“It was faint, but even so, there was no mistaking the power of the sound that was seeping through those walls, because there can only be one Edward.”
Later, Bettencourt encountered Van Halen in the hallway, and asked how the album was progressing. Eddie replied, “It’s cool… I’m a little nervous though.”
